I remember my first drive in a defender.
Scared the crap out of me..

Was the only car I have ever driven where the steering wheel appeared to operate the car following the one behind me...
Felt like it would have been slightly easier to get out and move the road in the direction the landy wanted to go in!!

This is so true!  :)) the first time I drove one I nearly wiped a car out pulling out of a junction because I just wasn't ready for the fact the steering reacts half an hour later than when you ask it to do something and it needs so much lock just to turn the wheels a few inches.
