Currently stationed in the UK, but I transfer to Northern California this summer. Looking forward to being part of the NCLR when I get there.

 

This is my 1985 Land Rover 110 CSW. I bought it from a Brit I work with that couldn't be bothered to do the work himself. I was more than happy to take it off his hands! I've attached before and after photos. Lots of work done to it already and continuing to make improvements as I go.

I like it - looks really good in that matte green.  

 

We'd be glad to have you join us when you return stateside - we have big plans for this coming year.

Looking forward to seeing you and the rig on the other side of the pond. Hopefully you don't have much trouble bringing the 110 over here.

Wow, your 110 looks great. Nice upgrades.

 

Look into importation before you ship it. I think you would have less trouble with a diesel, since the petrol engines need to be smogged. I am trying to import a truck and shipping is easy, but getting it registered in California can be a nightmare.

Teds,

 

Thanks for your advice. Advice and others' experience is always welcome.

 

Hopefully my import will be a little easier. As a member of the US military, I have the right to have my vehicle registered in my home state of FL while stationed in CA while I am still active duty. When I retire in a couple of years, however, that may become an issue. I'll be shipping the truck in a couple of months and have already begun the process of having it registered and titled in FL. My hope is that I deal with any problems that may come up ahead of the truck leaving the UK.

 

Thanks again! I look forward to getting to CA and meeting some of you.

 

Nick

Update: I now have orders taking me to Sunnyvale, CA, for my next duty station. I will be leaving the UK in July after 3 & 1/2 years here. Rig will be shipped late-May. I've already have a title on license plates in FL, so hopefully the import process will be a little easier for me as a result.

Nick,

 

Let me know if you need it picked up from the port .... we're only a few miles north, towards SF.  Could even give it a test at the local off-road park for you ....

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

So many helpful people  ;)  :D

 

Unfortunately, the military uses ports in San Diego, LA and Seattle on the West Coast, so I will have to pick up from one of those.

IIRC most of the stuff for the LA area comes in through Port Hueneme.

Well, tomorrow is the day I drop her off to be shipped. Next time I see her will be when I pick her up in Los Angeles to drive to our new home in Sunnyvale.

 

Looks good all cleaned up ready for inspection!

Yeah, but not going to go alone. I'll need someone to show me around a bit. Never been to CA or any of its trails.
