It doesn’t matter what Land Rover does with the new Defender — “old school” SUV people are going to hate it. All of them, without exception. There is literally zero way to please these people and still make the car modern, high-tech, fuel-efficient, and competitive.

Aww. Small world indeed — Joe is my best friend, and he wasn’t just at my wedding, he was my best man! Also one lesson I have learned from knowing him and others: Land Cruiser people are, invariable, good people!

Hahaha, this is awesome!
