    i have heard of a mob in england (i think) that do special order landies in non standard configurations.

    they do disco's and defenders for that matter, swapping out the td5 for the tdi200 or 300, and other expedition mod's.

    Dont know whether they still call them by there original name tho.

    there used to be a link to them on the old site.

    they also do special order suzuki's 4wd's as well as some cars and ship them world wide.

    dammed if i can remember there name........... time to go googling...

    I guess I'll just have to wait untill I meet him to find out what toys he has in the back yard. It is a bit of a drive from my place, but i'll go one day.

    I was always quite impressed with the Defender in the first Tomb Raider movie... it supposedly came out of the Landrover Special Vehicles Division. She is a beauty!!!

    Couldn't agree with you more.

    A pity that the defender never came with the V8 in australia (Yes, I know that there are a couple about)

    or that the official Defender Tomb Raider edition looked nothing like the one in the movie... I was in a position to buy it back then but didn't as was too disappointing in looks compared to what I wanted :roll:

    Nice truck but not the one in the movie

    I don't know about the Discos, but there's a mob called Overfinch who 'do up' Rangies in Pom-golia..

    www.overfinch.com

    Check out the videos if you get a chance. Great commentary!
