United Kingdom 2012 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 HT Santorini Black

Here's my first 110 hi cap in Switzerland towing a MK11 jaguar with a gear box problem that was a long drive in A reg non turbo with no power steering ,on the return journey when I got to the doctor who own the car he ask me if I wanted to go to opening of a new jaguar dealer in Luzern ,when we got there he introduced me to a number of people we would shake hands and I would just try and be British and found a corner to stand in out of the way.then the new dealership owner stood up said a few words and point at me and in very broken Engish and said this is Nigel Wood from Jaguar ! There was about 100 people all chapping me some patting me on the back, I though please don't ask me to say a few words because I don't know who I'm supposed to be let a lone speak Swiss,I just waved and smiled Embarassed Any way here's the Hi cap A reg 2.5 diesel series 3 seats and steering wheel.

Another 110 this time a county towing D type Jaguar picked up from wales ,the owner lived in a full blown castle with a moat a under ground swimming pool and huge collection of classic car's ,I sold this and a Porsches 944 to help pay for our house which left us with a very small mortgage .Why I ever went off roading in the 110 I don't know but it did wash up nice and I sold it to a x policeman who was then a full time bee keeper .I hope he did not think I stung him Rolling Eyes

I know I have been mainly showing pictures of past Land Rovers so I thought I will put a few of my latest toy.I have purchased a MOMO steering wheel and Opitmill boss and quick release for the 90 when I fitted the wheel I thought a bit of yellow would not go a miss so after a search in to the depths of the work shop found these yellow sealing rings ,the wife likes them so that worries me Whistle

I thought I would change the heading as it was not leading way I thought it would and is more about my cars than others and why they bought them.So here my 90 with my new caravan.

Awesome car!

Angry Pumas is one of the better (IMO) Puma Facebook pages. Quite a good place for photos, spotted, basic question, more technical stuff here is best.

The guy who spotted you has a lovely Urban Truck 110 shown here...

From super cars to a series 3 these pictures were taken over at Thamesmead when it first opened it was a lovely large site with just about very sort of ground conditions .

This was my first Land Rover built for off roading ,four Weller 16" steel wheels fitted with 7.50 sat's,bucket seat and after that dip a snorkel was made and fitted.

The snorkel was made from lorry turbo intercooler pipes.The red 109 was nearly on it's side and I just managed to pull him out,Thamesmead was all about recovering and being recovered Laughing

A bit distant for me to see, but is that a Daimler Majestic Major on the trailer?
