When it comes to vintage SUVs, there are few options better than the iconic Land Rover Defender. If you want a modern restomod with modern creature comforts and all the style of the past, there are plenty of brands that will do it for you. But honestly, few of them deliver like Texas-based Twisted Automotive. The Twisted Automotive Remake History program produced quite a few great Restomod Land Rover Defenders, and now, the brand is expanding with their new NA-V8 Land Rover Defenders. In layman’s terms, the NA-V8 keeps the retro-chic Land Rover Defender style while upgrading literally everything important to the modern era. Comfy, contemporary interior with infotainment, AC, leather and accessories. The beating heart of a Corvette Stingray in the 6.2L V8 LTI engine. State-of-the-art braking, suspension and wheel/tire package done in part with all the noteworthy modern brands. Each Twisted NA-V8 Defender will be built-to-order in one of five different configurations depending on the space you want. They’re only planning on building 200 over the next five years, so if you want one, get on the list quick.


While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
