About Us

The Early Years

AdventureMotorCars began in the Spring of 2001 as a passionate dream to one day buy and sell more NAS Land Rover Defenders than anyone in the country. One by one the Land Rover Defenders came in and went out. In the Fall of 2001, a website was launched and an eBay account was opened. In 2004 a hobby turned into a business when both founding partners (Stephen Ogletree and David Coutta, jr (Stephen’s father-in-law)) left construction careers to work full time. A driveway and residential garage was later moved to a downtown Birmingham, AL lot.

Building Momentum

Slowly but surely, word got around that AdventureMotorCars specialized in buying and selling top quality Land Rover Defenders. In 2010 refurbishings were opened up to the public.  Now for the first time, a customer could bring in their NAS Defender and have it refurbished.

In 2012 vehicle consignment sales began allowing a customer to sit back and commission AdventureMotorCars to sell their NAS Defender.  In 2013, Stephen Ogletree became the sole owner and operator of the business.  In 2014 AdventureMotorCars acquired a 10,000 sf building and 10,000 sf overflow lot.
