Sad day for De­fender owner…

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - MIFFBUSTERS -

So a few nights ago, it fi­nally hit me like a steam train: I need to sell my De­fender ( cue sad face!). This my sec­ond De­fender and it’s go­ing to be re­ally hard part­ing with her. She’s my favourite thing. An ab­so­lute plea­sure… I love her. I never EVER want to let her go. She’s a 2008 model, and I bought her with only 30 000 km on the clock. Now, she’s got 80 000 km on the clock and many more mem­o­ries to boot. She’s my dream. Remapped, up­graded in­ter­cooler and all the bells and whis­tles later, I sim­ply couldn’t get enough of her. It hit me again as I was driv­ing to the fam­ily with the fan­tas­tic Clar­ion up­graded sound sys­tem blar­ing in my ears: Why let go? Un­for­tu­nately, my bank ac­count sug­gests oth­er­wise. Maybe I should wait a few years, buy one of the last De­fend­ers and set­tle down for­ever. For now, SWAMBO’s Disco will have to nur­ture my bro­ken heart. I will be sleep­ing in the Puma un­til she’s sold – sim­ply the best ve­hi­cle ever!
