i ran across this interesting article from caradvice.com comparing a shiney new 2016 Land Rover Defender 110 Adventure with a venerable 1983 Land Rover Defender 110 County:

So much else is remarkably similar. The commanding sense of visibility, expansive glasshouse and upright driving position is almost identical between the two. The switchgear, gauges and controls are more rudimentary in the County, but not by much. The Adventure simply hasn’t moved into modern times as much as you might think.

Such a shame they are being discontinued. You can't even legally import one unless it's >25 years old.

A good guy in Wheat Ridge, CO has a passion to find & restore & preserve these type of vehicles. Mastodon 4X4 Motor Vehicles. As long as he's around, there is always hope. Thank goodness! :)
