2016 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 XS CSW Keswick Green

This is the thing; It's a lovely thing to own and I will miss it when it's gone, but I am just not able to use it often enough. I could very easily keep it but I'm not a collector.

I hope you don’t regret it

I hope so too. I might one day, but the only things I have really regretted selling have been those which brought me great memories from adventure.

Do you have another project in mind?

Always. My friends ask me what my latest project is when I meet them. I think that I enjoy the process of breathing new life into something more than continued ownership. However, I do still have an itch to own a classic Range Rover, although in reality one is probably beyond my means.

This bit in the description did make me laugh though

I reworded it, but it was funny how that came out. It does require meticulous attention to know when to stop restoring something.

That's definitely a more accurate and appealing description. Such a great restoration. I did show the boss last night but apparently I've already spent my budget for the year.

I gave it a good clean a couple of weekends ago. It's still very tidy underneath after all the effort to restore and protect the chassis and axles.

You have to laugh at the fact that the axle cases are stronger than those on the last Classic Defenders, the wheel-bearings are bigger, and generally everything is better engineered! Progress, eh?
