Two images, uploaded almost simultaneously, by two regular forum participants. Interstate mind meld? Separated at birth?

No I cheated. I had been holding onto that shot of mine for a while now, not sure if it would be accepted. But then when I saw Ken's shot and deicded to put mine in. It was rejected and I had to recrop it tighter to be accepted. Every once in a while I try and get the Jeep in a shot for prosperity.

I'd been holding onto mine too, since I'd shot it 2 months ago on slide film (I still dabble in the old stuff now and then) and I didn't have a slide scanner until recently. I'd been thinking of what kind of a shot I could submit for my 100th on Railpictures, and was considering holding back for an awesome shot. Instead I decided to go with this special one.

I must admit, I was disappointed that neither of them had a Geep too...

I'd imagine that there's a similar post over on JP.Net with the official JP.Net company jet pictured

I ended up with my car in the shot I took Sunday, I pulled into the snow covered lot and got stuck, peaked around the corner and saw a headlight:

Nice 'Rover! Is that a Defender 90? Those Land Rovers are among my favorites.

Thanks - yes it is a Defender 90. Basically the same vehicle that was sold in the U.S. in the 1990's before safety regs killed it off in that market - except the U.S. models had a V8 petrol engine, auto box, full external roll cage, soft top and a much better equipment spec.

This version has a station wagon body, 5 cylinder diesel engine, and a 5 speed manual box. As pictured its pretty much as standard except we added a steering guard, and D rings on top of the front bumper (fender). The previous owner had already changed the tyres to BFG AT's and applied chequer plate to the sills and wing tops (very useful when using the bonnet as a tripod mount to overcome high bridge sides).

It'll go pretty much anywhere that can be legally driven in this country.

Just like Jeeps in the U.S. there is a huge after market for add on bits and conversions for Land Rovers here in the UK. Our truck is very tame compared to many I see on the roads.

You're right about Jeeps having a big aftermarket...you can build one nearly from the ground up with aftermarket parts!

I never thought that LRs had a big aftermarket...you learn something new every day.

Have they started hanging fake [portions of anatomy from the swimsuit area] on the rear bumpers yet? It's become quite a fad down here in Oklahoma
