halfway between...and it's yours.. It'd make a great boat launching vehicle! ....but it's best suited to a midget as the driving position is a little..... shall we say.... cramped?

Ah....... OK Here’s the latest acquisition… currently front engined… but we’re toying with the idea of rear engine or even twinning it…..

Dissapointed is the word I think.

Managed to test drive a TD5 110 last week, and couldn't believe how cramped it was.

I honestly can't say how well it went, as I really didn't feel in control of it.

I'm not overly tall, 6' 1", and although starting to 'spread slightly' I'm not that wide either. With the seat right back my left knee was touching the dash, which made clutch control difficult, and my right elbow was literally clamped to my side by the door, making steering difficult.

I'm sure modifying the seat position would make a huge differance, but unless I could test drive a vehicle with the mods already done then I'll have to forget it.

Shame because I still like the look of them.

Nasher.

Doh you forgot to open the window!!!

It is cramped but you soon get used to it. Try a Caterham instead......

On thing I think would help a hell of a lot in a Defender is to raise the seat somehow. There is no shortage of headroom so unless you wear a tophat you shouldn't have a problem. A bus style seating position would give you far more room and better visibility - especially if you want to pot the spare wheel on the bonnet.
