  8. Hello all, as is proper protocol I am introducing myself. My name is Winston I currently reside in New Jersey, i recently sold a couple of soft skinned retired military vehicles to gather funds to buy my first piece of armor. I have an affinity towards Shorland Land Rovers and the their associated history in Ireland and the rest of the world. This all started back some 30+ years ago when my mother who was crazy and still is went out and brought home a Ferret armored car, she proceeded to paint it pink and put a giant flower emblem on it (bit of a hippy). She drove often for a bit
