What's the back story? Fake VIN's? Black market import? DHS doesn't just show up at your house. There's gotta be a big reason no?

So the back story is this guy Aaron Richardet was running an import gig. He was shipping in newer rovers made in 2000. He was then putting older vins on them to take advantage of the 25yr and older rule for importing vehicles. Needless to say all the current owners are getting there defenders taken.

Also my buddy is on a land rover forum and knows of three other ones seized today.

His rover is awesome I watched it climb an unplowed trail with well over 4ft of snow. Only snowmobiles use this rd in the winter.

That sucks... i fucking love rovers. but to me it isn't worth the legal hassle of buying one that isn't legit. did your friend know it wasn't a legit import? i hope it doesn't end up like that one that got crushed like 2 years ago.

He didn't buy it from the importer he bought it from another private seller.
