Hi all. Though currently resident in San Diego, I hail from Cape Town, South Africa. Sadly my Defender 110 could not come along. I thought I'd pick up a rebuilt left-hand-drive Defender here, or perhaps a 70-series 'Cruiser, so that I could explore North America's great continental divide. But 'real' overlanding 4x4's are scarce and/or ludicrously priced. I got excited for a millisecond when the new Defender was announced. But the prospect of the Grenadier is thrilling. I dropped my $350 deposit with Sir Jim as soon as he asked, and now it's been almost a year-long waiiiiiit!

Looks like there are some promising signs of Grenadier life in Africa and Australia. I am rapt in......... ............anticipation!

Welcome Denis
Will you be back in South Africa for your Grenadier delivery or wait in the USA for it? By this statement, I am thinking you might be back home...Looks like there are some promising signs of Grenadier life in Africa and Australia. I am rapt in......... ............anticipation!...Aussies love the Land Rover as much[not quite]as much as you guys...I had a South African come straight up to me when I jumped out of my series 2 shorty here in OZ and said I will pay you whatever you want for it...that was years ago and I still have it...happy motoring
