The content includes what to look for when buying a used Series Land Rover, how to contact various clubs from around the world, parts vendors , A Register of VIN and limited edition pairs for NAS Defenders (110s, 90s and 90SWs), and serial numbers .
Alternative parts numbers Range Rovers (Most will work on Defenders and Discoveries of similar years). (5 July 1997)

Viewpoint now has a model of a SIII 88" Land Rover (lrover.obj.zip) by F. X. DeJesus on it's anonymous Ftp server . This is a 3D model for computer animations. (This is actually a model of my (Ben) Land Rover, so there are some differences--such as the rear bumper--from a stock SIII. One of my coworkers made the model just to make a video to tease me. I've now seen the video. It features dust, a good simulation of wheels following a rough road and oil drips. At the end my Rover is destroyed by a Shadow ship as featured on Babylon 5. My Land Rover gets cut in half and explodes. It isn't pretty.
