England 2011 Defender 90 Puma 2.4 XS CSW Stornoway Grey
Hello from Florida!

After spending the best part of two weeks in Florida and not seeing a single Defender, I then stumbled across this little beauty in Disney's Animal Kingdom Safari Park. There were actually two of them atificially distressed to fit in with the safari theme!

there are a few static ones in Busch Gardens (series 3) and you can have an off road ride in extended 110s around the safari ride DEFENDER 90 TDCI XS,

I hope everyone is well and your land rovers make you happy

Cherrs guys. I did go on the off road safari ride, but didn't see any extended 110's. They were using huge GMC trucks modified to look like safari vehicles seating about 30 people!

Very cool. I spotted a defender 90 in Jacksonville Florida years ago at a baseball park. I wanted to get out and hunt the owner down to ask him about it but they were in the middle of practice. I see defenders very rarely in the states. It's almost like seeing a unicorn.

We were in Key Largo and came across an 88in Series 3, been a static ornament for a while judging by the Christmas lights wrapped around it. The only other Defender we saw was a yellow NAS90 at The Epic in Miami but we were stopped from taking pictures by Mark Cuban’s security man Crying or Very sad 2014 110 2.2TDCi XS Station wagon

We have a holiday flat we rent out about 2000m from Animal Kingdom. Whenever we are down there(like a few months ago at Christmas) I get the obligatory family photo in front of that series. I found the front left signal assembly in the dirt, so just draped it across the bonnet. There is another 109 done up as a full expedition vehicle at Disney Springs just down the road in front of the Rainforest Cafe.
