On Saturday January 10th, 2009 I purchased a 1991 Range Rover Hunter in Santa Fe, New Mexico to replace my rolled 1989 Range Rover. It had right about 167,770 miles on it then.

I have owned my 1991 Range Rover Hunter for 00 years 00 days 00 hours 00 minutes 00 seconds.

Many parts transferred from the 1989.

As of April 19th, 2021 with just shy of 287,000 miles, it has a nearly new 4.2L engine. Ready for another 287,000 miles!
