Land Rover Defender | GregoryWest

It would be impossible for me to publish a post about the Toyota Land Cruiser J40 and not follow it up with one about the Land Rover Defender. Just like the J40, the Defender traces its roots back to WWII, and a design inspired by the original Willys Jeep. Over the past sixty-plus years, this off-road beauty has naturally evolved, but I love that it has retained a lot of the classic styling of its predecessors. Unfortunately, production of the Defender will apparently be shuttered late next year, but on the bright side, with many of them still on the road and going strong, it should be relatively easy to pick one up with a few miles on the odometer.
