United Kingdom 2008 Defender 90 Puma 2.4 HT Stornoway Grey
New Defender owner

Recently purchased a 90 County HT from the forum via rockstar57. I travelled nearly 600 miles for it and the condition is a credit to Peter. It is my first Defender, and third LR. I wanted one a few years ago but chickened out and went for a late D3 HSE which touch wood looked after me well. I then sold that about 18 months ago and bought a DS HSE black which I still have (given to my wife). As I have set up a new business I needed a van that can cope with lugging loads and the occasional need to drive across muddy fields - only one choice of course! Laughing

Anyway a couple of pics below. I plan to look after it and tweak it slightly (as I have with most of my cars!). I have already added a Momo millenium steering wheel and a DAB radio. I want to keep things simple with a KBX grill, some Wipac lights and possibly JW Speaker headlights. I like the boost wheels but might keep these for a spare set as they're in great order and go for a set of Twisted 18s or similar. That's about it for my plans, it needs to remain usable and semi sensible for work Laughing

I didn't want to divert the thread with mention of air cooled Porsches but now it has... Since The Bridge and joining Instagram I seem to have a love of retro Porsches... I can see a new thread coming on "Defender and Porsche Owners Club" Whistle James

Defender and Porsche Owners Club thread; I like that idea. Be interested to see pics of other Porsches. Never knew there would be so many others on here!

It’s a 1989 3.2 Carrera, bought before prices went mad. Love driving it but I’m a long time (45 years) Land Rover owner so it’s in the blood Thumbs Up 2015 Defender 90 SW / 1985 factory V8 Ninety

Nice 964, and the 3.2 is a nice car. I have been trying to buy one for years but the owner won't sell it. It has been sat in an open ended garage unloved and badly needs some TLC. I don't think its been on the road in ten years. I won't give up!
