Re: Land Rovers in the Turks and Caicos Islands

Saw a nice Defender today at the Marina, it also exemplifies the generosity of the lovely people on the island. If you look closely you will see the keys to it sitting on the front fender (wing).

Land Rovers in the Turks and Caicos Islands

I did a little scouting around the island today, and my favourite Land Rover graveyard is being developed and only a few Defenders left.
