im sorry i would go for the G Waggon over the new defender ,  i do like the new merc pickup tho  ,

as i suspected the defender has lost its simplicity and ruggedness , but all modern cars are the same , you need a puter to do anything ,

i cant think of any currrent production car that is as rugged and indestructable as a series or a old defender , and thats just silly

For £60K you can get a highly specced and reliable Toyota Land Cruiser, I think that's the vehicle I'd go for if I had that sort of money.

.... which the defender will never now be ? - or will it ? - it would seem to be what every one is wanting/expecting it to be ?

Hi,

If you are in the market for something that used to be rugged, do a Google for ALGYS AUTOS, and read what they say about themselves, and the trucks that they sell.

I think they still list rust-free Discoveries and Range Rovers, but I'm not sure about Defenders. I suppose if you asked then to find a Series, they might TRY to find you one. 

Hmmm! Jimny? I didn't notice if any were listed, I must have a shufti.
