1998 Land Rover Discovery I

I'm the original owner of La Poderosa (the powerful one). She had 8000 miles on it when I bought it from Newport Beach Land Rover in November 1998. I have replaced or upgraded almost everything on this rig over the years. She tracks straight, and rides like a luxury vehicle. She has been all over the place offroading on overland trips as well as difficult/technical rock crawling and has never left us stranded in bad place. I've taken care of her and she has taken care of us.
