Why aren't we very skilled 'auto makers'? We build some of the worlds best cars, and no dis-respect to American manufactures, our cars handle a lot better and for a sports/super car we know it's not all about power.

The English aren't very skilled auto makers. Land rovers and jaguars are especially terrible. They can make a vehicle only paint deep. They can't master the mechanics on how to build a reliable vehicle like the Germans, Japanese, or American brands.

Nope. I think they're much better than Wranglers or most other offroads. They look great, especially the front.

Ahh they are both great. Defenders are a lot more spendy out of the box though. They are probably equivalent of a Rubicon though stock for stock in terms of capability.

That's ugly but it does the job at lest well until it breaks down lol

The H1 was awesome. The H2 was dismissable as a small stumble by GM. The H3 was a horrendous abomination that should have never seen the light of day

And a 'humvee' just says I'm a careless gas waster. The first ones were fine but the last few were cheap, unreliable compared to these and oddly small inside.
Shane Carroll Jul 31, 2011
Nah, not seeing a humvee resemblence here
Marcel Dawson Jul 31, 2011
Looks just like a humvee except a h1 is way cooler
Stephen Cobbs Jul 31, 2011
