    I'm sorry, but lumping every single variant of Cruiser under one sales number is just stupid marketing.

    Ja nee wat. 10 Million units sold and established a MASSIVE marque/following.......dit is well done in enigeen se boeke. Fluit fluit, my storie is uit.8)

    And remember this is a "high end" product, always was - LC's was never cheap. run-of-the-mill karretjies like the Model T or the Beetle, etc etc etc

    Petri thats a very small can compared to the one opened at a LC Club braai at Clarens last year(I just happened to be camping there at the time and the discussion turned to the FJ being eligible or not) - it was more like a can of snakes had been opened.......to the die hards even the Prado and 200 were frowned upon

    Chill guys, I'm saying the MARKETING is stupid, the product is fine.
    It's like lumping ALL the Land Rover products under one banner and saying "See, we sold XYZ".

    An LC200 has about as much in common with an LC76 as what I have in common with Britney Spears.........
