Hummer was out -- too big, too expensive, too much of a gas guzzler. Nissan I didn't look at much. Jeep and Land Rover were priced similarly so if choosing between the two, I'd rather have the Land Rover ... more luxury and prestige for practically the same price.

I would take a second look at Nissan, and at the Jeep. I would also look at how much a reliable mechanic who works on all these vehicles costs. I don't know, maybe there are mechanics in your neck of the woods who work on Land Rovers that are not expensive, but I wouldn't bet on it.

And Aran, has the A1/M1 ever been repaired? How much did that cost? I don't think it's the original material from when Henry VII used it. And I think it's a slightly different skill set to build a road than a car.

And the Camino Real, which goes through El Paso, and stretched from Mexico City up north to Santa Fe, reached its full 1500 mile length in 1598, but was in use before that, by the Spanish, and in use even before that, by the Native Americans. The Spanish started it northward from Mexico City not long after Columbus reached the Americas, so not long after 1492.

Anyway, there's some old stuff in the U.S. El Paso, where I'm from, celebrated its four-hundred year anniversary in 1981 or 1982 (I remember the fireworks, if not the exact year), and there are 2,000 year old pictographs at Hueco Tanks state park. Just FYI.
