All Must Bow Down Before This Nissan-Powered Land Rover With Citroen Suspension!

You think you know the meaning of Project Car Hell, do you? It is to laugh! Next time your flesh is feeling singed because you can't find some trim component for your Borgward and you're feeling like you're experiencing the full measure of Hell's torments, contemplate the enormity of what Mr. Curtis Merrill of Calgary, Alberta, has accomplished with his vintage Land Rover. He's installed a turbocharged Nissan V6 out of a 300ZX, but that was just to get warmed up for the real project. Yes, he's built a custom frame and placed a complete hyrdropneumatic suspension out of a Citröen DS under the Land Rover body... and everything works! In case that still isn't enough for you, check out the Pathfinder/Jaguar front-rear differential setup, not to mention the inboard Citröen SM brakes! Thanks to Paul_Y for the tip!

So what we have here is an old but rust-proof Lando with reliable power and a silky ride. I don't see the problem...

The guy says in his page that he's been driving this mongrel for over 25K miles and worked out all the bugs - even if he drives twice as much as the average guy, he's been rolling the Frankenrover for at least a year - who needs Truck Nutz? This contraption is a vehicular testicle unto itself.
