I am new to the forum. I am currently in Indianapolis, however will be moving next year to Fort Wayne, IN. Luckily I have come across PTSchram (LR guru) on the Fort Wayne Land Rover site and am looking forward to meeting him.

I am excited about diving head first into older Land Rovers. We frequent Costa Rica and that is where I first discovered the Defender. WOW, what a beauty. I am open minded at this point about what kind of Land Rover I want to get, but honestly I think I am sold on a Defender. Since I have 3 kids I figure that a 110 is probably the way to go for space purposes. I ultimately want to use it as an everyday driver too. I would love to teach my boy how to work on a truck and this community appears exceptional. I am curious is there any kind of resource showing the different specs on the defenders by year so I can compare and contrast the different models? Any advice would be great! I am not quite sure how I want to buy one yet either. Having one imported sounds attractive, but complicated, any advice there would be great too. In my perfect scenario I would like something I can drive daily, but something the boy and I can completely refurbish.

Thanks for any advice!

Check out www.defender source.com lots of great info there and a lot of 110 come up for sale to fit various budgets.

Good luck in your search I love my 110. Its great for hauling the family and dogs.

PTSchram is a great rover mechanic, just ignore the mohawk and you'll be fine. Also watch out for Shop Moggy, you've been warned.

Ok seriously, Paul really knows his stuff and is an extremely competent, talented and fair mechanic that will always do right by the customer. If I was closer and not such a cheap ass I would use his services more. I buy my 110 parts from him when the need arises as he has never done me wrong.
