There is big money to be made in importing those for resale.
Yuppers.

Most of those are RHD though, this one is actually LHD for extra bonus points.

It is really too bad they didn't try harder to import them in the US.

See also Mercedes G-Wagon and Land Cruiser.

Some day I would love to sneak up on a Disco I/II or Range Rover Classic...

Ah yeah definitely a huge fan of the old discos, classic too naturally. I'd definitely own one, but I'd be swapping a lot of the bits out with GM crap probably lol.

It is sickening some little pinhead was so proud of themselves doing that they felt the need to record it.

Flagged this guy down at a red light, says he's building a 331. 1st gen Splash with original paint. Very clean truck. Manual window cranks, he almost didn't want to roll it down, to talk to me, lol. It's hot today in Tallahassee.

Bought, It's a South American / Mexican truck, not legal in the states.

I'd love to see one with a 7' bed though.

Not LEGAL? so against the law to own? I'm confused on what's "illegal" about this truck.
