Replacement for The Banger

Postby badhand » Mon Jun 11, 2018 1:07 pm

Couldn't face a RHD Stang.

Couldn't face ANOTHER S197.

Couldn't face anything between '73 and 2005.

Couldn't face driving a Gen1 everyday.

So I got this:

Modding the fuck out of it already.

Really?

You asked for it. Well it's a pretty tidy '04 TD5 Defender 90 with 150K on the clock. I'm told this is 'nothing'. Chassis seems fairly unrusted and motor and diffs fairly unleaky. It was half the price of my 'Stang and although nowhere near the same experience, it has some similarities I find appealing. Like the amount of aftermarket mods available!

I've had it about a week and have already done a bit of green laning into the Devils' Punchbowl and yesterday went for a play in some Farmer's woods with some new friends. So I'm still having fun, but at speeds the wife approves of...

The photo doesn't do the gradients justice:

It's pretty rural round here. Plenty of Banker's and 70s Rock Stars' back gardens to 'green lane' accross. :)

Don't tempt me. I have that Coyote in the garage that was being diverted from another Defender to the HellRaiser project, but hasn't quite made it yet... That'd drop right in!

Just don't mention it to cati... ;)
