      Trans-Darien Expedition 1960
      The Darién Gap is a large swath of undeveloped swampland and forest separating Panama and Colombia. It measures just over 160 km (100 miles) long and about 50 km (30 miles) wide. It is not possible to cross between South America and Central America by land without passing through the Darién Gap. As roadbuilding through this area is prohibitively expensive and the environmental toll is steep, it is the missing link in a road connection through the American continents.
      The gap itself was first traversed by the Land Rover La Cucaracha Cariñosa (The Affectionate Cockroach) of the Trans-Darién Expedition 1959-60, crewed by Amado Araúz (Panama), his wife Reina Torres de Araúz, the late former SAS man Richard E. Bevir (UK) and engineer Terence John Whitfield (Australia). They left Chepo, Panama on 2 Feb 1960 and reached Quibdó, Colombia on 17 June, averaging 201 m (220 yd) per hour. A few pictures of this impressive expedition are below.

      Yes he does. I get Land Rover Monthly from the U.K. and Hammond can often be seen in the mag lending a hand with this or getting help for that.

      In this video he is banging about in the Series I that his wife had purchased for him.

      Awesome thread guys [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] My Uncle just got a new Range Rover HSE with the 4.4 and I've been riding around in it the last couple days and it is SICK. Hasn't been off road yet with it but is going to. He has already used it to tow his skidsteer With a 7000lb towing capacity why not? It snowed and he has to transport the skid steer around to remove snow from all the apartment/condo buildings he owns. And now I want one.

      All 94-95 Defender 90's (none imported for 1996) came from the factory as stick shifts. There are D90's within these year ranges that have auto transmissions but they were converted by the owners. Late in 1994 the LT77 gearbox was replaced by the improved R380 gearbox. All 500 NAS D110's were 5 speeds (and only available in white) and all 1997 D90's came equipped with the 4 speed ZF auto transmission.
      Finding a manual D90 should be relatively easy and finding a stick NAS D110 will be a bit harder and about twice as expensive. It will also depend on if you want a soft top or station wagon (hard top). There were no wagons produced in 1994 and nearly twice as many soft tops vs. hard tops imported in 1995.

      Thought you guys might get a kick out of this....
      Today I took delivery of removable hard top for my '94 D90! Im so happy!!! lol
      The top was painted by the previous owner in Beluga Black and he did some minor reinforcing of certain parts of the roof to ensure future rigidity. Its in really great condition.....im really impressed!
      Check out the pics...Its only a loose fit, as I have a '94, I have to drill some holes into the body to secure the roof to the car (the removable hard top was only available from '95 on, so most '94s have to drill a few holes):






      Ya ya....i know the pictures suck....i took them tonight, Ill get better ones tomorrow
