Your chance to buy 43 ex-NATO Land RoversFri, 18 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0700
Ever wanted to buy 43 Land Rover Defender 110s? Of course you have. Think of the possibilities. Start your own UN peacekeeping mission. Venture forth to dangerous places: Siam, French Indochina, the Belgian Congo, Woodland Hills. Stick it to Putin with your own adorably puny show of solidarity with Ukranian people. Call up 42 of your buddies, tell them you're gonna go camping and coup d'etat-ing at the same time. Tell 'em to bring guns. Lots of those will fit in the back.
Sometime between 2008 and 2009, either NATO or the U.K. Ministry of Defense went on a spending binge that left a hell of a hangover and a warehouse full of trucks. These are brand new Land Rover Defender long-wheelbase pickup trucks with regular cabs and canvas tops, left-hand drive, ready to be loaded with C7 rifles and hatchet-faced SAS toughies. All the trucks come equipped with 4WD, two-speed transfer boxes and parabolic suspensions. As far as we can tell, they have never been used. Their 2.4-liter turbodiesel engines and six-speed manuals have seen not a single kilometer. That's right -- low miles, must sell now. These beauties are ready to move, baby, and let's make a deal!
Buy 'em in bulk and invade Costco for gallon drums of cheesy poofs.
Price? You'll have to call the always-fascinating
