I don't know a lot about their corporate structure (if there is any), but apparently the Mossy "family" of dealers originates in New Orleans in 1921.

The Houston dealer has the most comprehensive write up I've found.

I saw the Grenadier again this morning in the light. Was able to pass it and see the car from all angles. They did a good job. It really does look like a modernized Land Rover 110.

I believe this one is the Grenadier Trialmaster edition. The snorkel could come in handly in Houston...

I've not seen one yet. I'm sure it is quite the site. Although I suspect after a while they will just look stupid.

Thereís one in the Tesla store near my house. The exterior isnít as bad in person as I expected, though itís still pretty goofy looking. The interior is laughably bad. And while Iíve hear people say the rear headroom is ok despite the shape, my head was almost touching the glass.

Anyway, hereís a Harlequin Polo I saw on the road as a palette cleanser.
