Object of Desire

I have a fascination with Land Rovers. I think it's actually an addiction. I have owned both vintage and newer models. My obsession started at a very early age. I remember watching the old 60's movie "Born Free", about the lioness in the wild. I couldn't care less about Elsa, I just wanted one of those damn, cool looking trucks.

At a later age, my true object of desire was a 1993 Land Rover Defender 110. There were only 500 imported into the US for that year. No more ever reached our shores due to safety regulations. 6 years ago my dream came true and I was lucky enough to take ownership of one. As unstylish as it may look, I beg to differ. It's a work of art.
