    Paging Robert Davis

    Many years ago, we bought a Mercedes 300 TD Wagon that the owner sold us because about 6 months after he started using veg oil for fuel, the filter would almost immediately clog with rust particles. When I picked it up, I brought along a sedimenter, a 12V fuel pump, and a 5 gallon can filled...

    Questions about Santanas

    Late Santana Scam Sale. Note the word Santana does not appear. Check out the chopped bulkhead on the 1989 without vents and the folding windscreen domicile door hinges. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1989-Land-Rover-Defender/264244820985?hash=item3d8637fbf9:g:F4wAAOSwGwFcj7jJ...

    Questions about Santanas

    That is the PS-10 that was a rebadged Iveco Massif that was only built in small numbers from 2007 to 2011. It is very different from a Defender. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iveco_Massif Interesting to note that the British Red Cross put the Iveco 2.8 Turbo Diesel into the 110 ambulances...

    Questions about Santanas

    The reason I was putting all those posts on the 1989 Santana Defender for sale thread is that I get asked by a lot of people for advice and sometimes the advice is regarding making a new purchase or having a post Santana purchase discussion. I steer buyers away from people that take a late...

    Questions about Santanas

    Terry... regarding "agree". Alright guys, a Suzuki is not as far away as a Santana, so please ease up on Terry. Not every thread needs your opinion, Terry, nor mine. If you have some real definitive info, ie objective based on facts, then post. Don't speculate and estimate based on a few...

    Questions about Santanas

    Am of the opinion that since the series section was added after NAS ROW had been up for some time and since none of the series folks ever congregated here to begin with, that they don't even know that this site has a new place for them. There are lots of series owners that generate lots of...

    1989 Defender Santana For Sale $23500, OBO

    I have spanish Land Rover parts lists and manuals and while while you may be able to take a Santana Door and bolt it onto to a British built vehicle that does not mean it is the same, Terry. The Santana frame is not even close to a Defender 90 Frame and the dimensions are as different as an 88...

    1989 Defender Santana For Sale $23500, OBO

    This site is very different from D90 Source. John B may be the only real one of us left as a MOD on D90 Source. Galpin, Chaney, Briggs, and a whole slew of others are gone. Chris and Dave have the best interest of the Land Rover community at heart. One would hope for a place that Santana owners...

    1989 Defender Santana For Sale $23500, OBO

    I would caution using the words Santana and Defender to describe the same vehicle because the two are completely different. While they do look similar from the bridge many of the Santana parts do not directly interchange with any part of a Defender or Series. By 1988/9, the Spanish had evolved...

    These are pictures of our X-Austrian Fire Brigade 109 with Rosenbauer fire pump we just sold. We never stole anyones inground swimming pool, but certainly could have. Who else has a X-Feuerwehr vehicle. Technically: did yours have clanghorns, a short wave radio, blue revolving lights, and a...
