Out in front of my work today. Not a Cruiser, but still kinda cool. Pretty well decked out.
I'm not much of a fan of the d90 but the 110's are way cool. Thanks for sharing.
Diesel? Or gasser?
Looks like a buddy of mines - did it have Wyoming plates - and a diesel - there are only a few in he states - his repair bills have been crazy!
I do like the 110's also, But he does have a backup just in case he lets the smoke out.
I think only 500 were imported by Land Rovers USA. I've never seen any of them actually used offroad in the US...
You would think someone smart enough to own a bmw motorcycle would have a cruiser!
130s are cooler.
The bike is there so they can still get to starbucks when the rover breaks down.
I thought public defenders drove Honda Accords?
Here's how you make a Rover dependable: (read the item description!)
Don't know about the engine. Tennesse plates and the tag on the back had the ###/500 thing. Had the biggest Tuffy console in it I've ever seen.
My ex and her husband have a diesel 110 in Germany. I like the look, but you definitely need to have mechanical abilities to own one...
All 110's brought into the USA were gas. They only made 500 in 1993 sold in the States all numbered with a special limited edition plate. They all had to be equipt with an external rollcage made by Safety Devices (whom also makes a cage for the Land Cruiser). They had to equipt the 110 with the rollcage to make it crash test worthy. Only came in the color White. If you see one that is a different color it was repainted by the owner. These rigs keep their resale value. Still sale for well over 40,000 USD. Nice thing about this plateform is you can swap parts between the Series 1,2,3, 109's 90's 110's 130's etc.. just like Legos. We came very close to buying a late 1970's 109 Safari wagon with a diesel.
I drove a diesel 110 while in Belize...it was sweet, but only got to go on the road. Also a nice Hi Lux. They both gagged going uphill.
Doc - that is funny! I woulda put something bigger under the hood - but that is nice!
Years ago we took my '94 Trooper RS and a D90 down the length of baja. It couldn't get out of it's own way! The combination of Mexican gas and sand killed it.
I really liked that RS.
When we were in europe that's what my wife liked the best. I was trying to point her to the troopies but they don't have a 4 door style.
This one was glossy silver. Didn't look like a respray. One thing it had that I've never noticed on the d90s was several wire mesh holes in the hood for heat dissipation.
The D110, IMHO, is one of the quintessential 4x4s. You can bash the repair bills and all but that rig is bad ass. And tell me another car or truck that you could buy for $36K 12+ years ago, put 100K miles on it - and sell it now for over what you paid for it. Did you dump some money into it to maintain it during those years? Sure. But you're still out way ahead. Its a fawking appreciating asset. And you can wheel the sh&t out of it in the meantime.
