Default My new ride....

Hi all!
It is quite a while I'm not writing, for a good number of reason...
So here I am with a good news.
As you can see from my new avatar, I sold my belowed Tata pickup 4x4 and last December I bought a Land Rover Defender!
Is 13 years old and had several thing I had to repair, but this is my passion!
What can I say about it? Well it is a different world, this car is a real and I mean "REAL" offroader!
Just few pics to have a look...

Ciao Ciao

Ignazio

That's quite a clean and mean looking thing you got. Good choice/find.

Oh man. Thats a mean mean looking SUV and a truly capable one on that. Awesome ride. The Defender is perhaps the obvious choice when it comes to hardcore off-roading.

Sweet Ride You Got there. Looks quite at home.

By the way, in Pic 4, one of the cars seem to look like a Tata Safari. I am not sure if it is sold there though.

There is an active Tata Club in Italy. Yes, the Safari is sold there.

Hi all!
Many thanks everyone!
I'll try answer few questions...
@SirAlec: yes mate indeed!!! That is why I'm still in Tata club Italia ;-)
@//M: spot on buddy!
@Malgudi: mine was 5800 euros, but with a bunch of important things to be repaired/changed urgently (timing belt and headlight to mention the first 2 I have in mind) fortunately I do everything myself in my garage, with a big save. normally a defender this age, in good working order quote around 7-9000 euros in Italy.
@Thedrimcatcher: as Sallipawar1 wrote, yes we do have Safaris!
and now some more pictures...

The first is a train :-)) basically the Patrol get stucked in the mud, winched to me, but I had a little grip, so a Safari of a friend came in front and together we make it.
