Not sure how the military ones were sold off though when SAF got rid of most of theirs a couple of years ago. They may well have changed the registration requirements for those. Most o the personal ownership people I knew (and Seletar Camp and a bunch back then) had $2 companies in order to register them.


OK. That might make sense now I think about it.

I tried buying some ex SPF/SAF defenders here but they are only available for export (ie. laid up until export). The new Defender of course is a G plate and a different beast.

Jon Homewood is selling his collection right now (one left - an ex RZNAF lightweight)

for the less informed, The Defender 110 and all thing Land Rover are mostly made of Aluminum and the rot is very less vs other vehicles and that's one reason the LR's last longer body wise :)

Though I somehow see the Disco has changed shape to be a Classy SUV !!

Unless you really need a car it is cheaper to just use taxi
