Well this was recovered from her final resting place, Looks like they really did give her a hard time, but she nearly did kill them if it hadn't been for a tree! The anti roll bars made sure she rolled over, when they tried to be cocky with her. My supervisor looked at it yesterday with his mate to pin point where it was. They said its had a massive hard time but that could have been to get rid of it with it been that mad hot on face book. So they cut their losses with it and just ragged it, flipped her and burnt it out. The axles have been whipped off after the bbq, the spare wheel was still on the back.
I went down to have a look where she was with my dad, we found a few remaining items, which proved it was mine. The ali oil breather was there, the air filter and the oil filter. Bits of the roof and the rear door, one seat and my radio. the bottle jack and a few other bits of the tub, She was well wrecked. When this story is over, I will show you all the final photos of her. Just have to say this as a piece of advice to you all, if god of bid this happens, and that's make it has red hot as possible, Sign up to every single local have your say face groups in your area and get its shared, aswell as make it public on your facebook profile Thumbs Up With me doing this, she never even got out of sunderland or even that far from me. Still I have lost a very good land rover, and its one less in the uk now on the roads, but at least she tried to injure them in her final time.

still p!"22ed off about the whole smash sadly, This year just started off very poor. I have been looking at possible replacements, But until the insurance comes through we are just window shopping, I cannot even make a move on going to see anything at all. its the case of the waiting game now, and we are looking into April at least for a replacement sadly. The bank needs to be squared off before I can even make a move. Seen a couple of decent ones, one is down kent, the other a two hours away from me. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Well the insurance is going to pay out, after nearly a month. Not sure how much we are going to get for her, But I have seen two nice defenders, as possible replacement. Been a hard one to find again! I thought about going back to where I got this one, but they don't have any decent ones in for the money. I really do miss her and she wasn't a bad car at all! I was really going to get my Teeth into her this year, After buying the wheels. Had a lot of plans!
Next week or the week after I will show you the damage of her, once all is settled. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

well the insurance phone me up today, and put an offer of £6250 for her, which I blew out straight away. I said older models were going for that. I also mentioned that I cannot find a replacement, to the same price I paid for mine either. So they are going to have another look at the price again.

Looks like we are going to have a bit of a war now, i have seen three decent ones, one is top whack and on a 54 plater. But has the toys. But its a case of having a chat again with the bank to see if they can spread me a few more quid for that one. seen another one which is an 02 plater, Not as much toys but its cheaper. Which the bank might be more happier helping me out on. I was going to gave my dad a few quid for the chassis replacement on our terr if i could. Due to him not been able to get a loan now due to his age. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Well here is what was left lads, Insurance stated its a Cat A write off but you can see that anyway by just looking at the pics. Evil or Very Mad
phuckin a waste of a good motor, tragic end to this one and a short one too. I was hoping we could have been together for many years. Sad

Awful pictures­čśó such a waste.

Remember 1st insurance offer will be low, the second will be close and the third will be roughly what your going to get.

Emailing them some ads from autotrader will help to. 2002 td5 90 county hardtop

Horrible pictures, I wonder why they removed the passenger seat?
