Defender in Town (Post #327) 4/8/2013

I was driving home from Oklahoma City on Saturday. On I-35 as you are about to come into Norman, you pass through Moore, Oklahoma. They are famous for the finest motion picture theatre in America in the Warren Theater.

Just down the road is Oklahoma Foreign Auto Parts. They always have half a dozen Porsche’s out front. They take salvage vehicles and build them back to like new. Well, there was a white Land Rover Defender 90 sitting out front. You know I had to check it out. If it was for sale I’d hate myself for not finding out at the very least what they were asking for it.

Turns out it was not for sale. The owner was probably dropping off a Porsche for it had a flat bed trailer hooked up. I met the lot salesman and the D90 owner as they were heading out to lunch. The D90 was owned by Brad from Ada, Oklahoma.

He was very gracious and agreed to let me take a couple of pictures. The right side had a few kisses on it. He said he bought it that way.

Brad, thank you for letting me show off your Defender. I could totally see myself behind the wheel of this classic Land Rover.

Thanks for Reading and Happy Rovering.

1991 and 1993 Range Rover Classics SWBs Available (Post #249) 2/21/2011

My good friend Mike and Rogers have two Range Rovers they are trying to part with. Each of them have bad transmissions. There is a 1991 SWB (Black) and a 1993 SWB (I remember it being white). They are located in Oklahoma City.

They want just $1500 for the pair. Yes THE PAIR! Engines are good and were running right up to the point where the transmissions quit.

Each of these guys are Jaguar men and Mike builds Bobbed M35’s on the side. They have these Range Rovers and are not willing to put in the time or effort to keep them on the street. Each of them were formerly vehicles their adult kids drove. Neither are in the position to dump the money in to keep these Classics on the road.

If you are interested, send him an email at mike w at crtonline dot com.

I am working on getting pictures.
