It appears the authorities were premature in dating various Land Rovers and had worked on information based on the last six digits of the VIN, which identify the chassis. However, it’s common practice among all vehicle manufacturers to recycle the same vehicle identifier numbers, the differences being in the prefix alphanumeric code.

Unbelievable! I wonder if any of them will sue (though it sounds like their legal representation was free). Good for them but just utterly disappointing and embarrasing for the feds!

That's some great news. The old 110 Defenders are pretty cool.

One of the first owners to have a visit from DHS back in July was Danny Harrington from upstate New York. Ten DHS officers arrived early one July morning demanding the seizure of his 1983 One Ten. The officers claimed the vehicle was 2000 model-year vintage and towed it away. Just a few weeks earlier Danny had replaced the clutch himself in a 10-hour marathon. As a friend of Dannys said: All the dude ever wanted was his hunk of junk truck back!
I think anyone can understand that.
