    Iím Back

    Well maybeÖ.
    itís been about 10 years since I have been on here. I sold my D1 (search subtle D1) for that build. Sold my D3 HSE because it was costing 5k in maintenance a year, went to Nissan for a very short time and then didnít have a 4wd at all for many years.
    tomorrow I am going to have a look at a D2 with my oldest son, so thought I would try and catch up on what they required.

    what I am a little surprised about is how many of the Ďold timersí are still here.

    so I big shout out to all my old friends and to my potential new ones as well

    You use to have a well set up D1 didn't you? I remember the name but my memory isn't that good any more.

    A lot of us "old timers" are here for more than just the Landrover experience.

    If I ever change allegiances, god forbid it never happens, I still think I would hang around here.

    I was asked " Is it ignorance or apathy?" I replied "I don't know and I don't care."

    Welcome back.

    Iím in the same boat too. Sold off the RRC a few years back, and drifted off. Now deciding between a nice D2 or L322.

    The Landrover thing is more infectious than the China virus. The only cure is an empty bank account.

    So it appears the guy selling his D2 isnít very keen on getting a sale. Takes a week between messages for him to reply. Get a response saying yeah come look tomorrow, ask him for his address and get nothing.
    anyone know of a mechanically sound, inexpensive disco going round in Vic for my son?

    Thanks. I remember you too Sprover.
    im sure my son would now love to get his hands on my old d1 now, although he got scared going off-road at the time.
    i Was only able to sell it for 12k at the time and would have no chance of getting something similar now. It probably owed me at least 5 times what I sold it for - 10k of engine, 5k of gas injection, 4K of winch, suspension, body, tyres etc

    welcome back to the fold .....I slid right off into the "darkside" after my D2 , went the way of a Ford Ranger single cab/chassis which is the nearest thing to a Defender 130 , using most of the common mechanicals , with zero mechanical issues.

    I guess now, selective buying a D2 could give some good cheap 4wd motoring now.

    good luck with it.

    A trip to Doomadgee would make for an epic road trip home to get used to it. Now I just need comrade Dan to let us outÖ. And back in again
