WTB: D90 in Northeast

I've been hanging around this site for a little while and must say I'm really impressed by the overall amount of resources and willingness of the D90 community to offer assistance, share info, etc.

I'm looking to purchase a Defender hopefully for under $25K. I'm located in Northeast PA as a reference point. This won't be my everyday vehicle and I'd probably also need something that needs little to no initial work even if the mileage is high. I also don't have a need for a hardtop, just soft. I've also been combing cars.com, ebay, and autotrader for a while but just haven't been able to find anything that fits within my price range and reasonable proximity to where I live.

If anyone knows of anything available or can pass along any info or available ones to look at please send me a PM.

Thanks in advance.

Too bad on the hard top request. There is one sitting in my driveway that I'd like to get rid of...

What year is it? Color? Milage? I am starting to shop for a second 90.

If I were buying a 90 I'd look for one from outside the NorthEast (aka RUST BELT) and drive it home. Rust is a big issue with Defenders, be careful.

Ditto on those questions.

ECR, appreciate the tip, I agree, it's brutal up here on cars in general.

I might try Rayco in Kingston. They have had d90's in the past (grew up there and my parents still live there). They go to exotic auctions in the South and also have a car finder service. The last one I saw there (few years ago while visiting during the summer) was sub 25K and was high miles but really nice looking.

It actually belongs to Tiz. I'm not sure if he's going to put it up for sale, or use it as the donor for his 110 project.

I'm looking for an SW, and my budget is tighter than yours, so i will pass on anything i come across, especially ST's. Echoing others, probably best to look further afield, vis-a-vis rust etc.

Found this in Cali ... perhaps withing your range. 77k mileage for $27k
http://monterey.craigslist.org/car/298608398.html

We have a little place up in Starlight, which is probably not too far from you.
Same corner of the world.

All the best in your search,

Karl.

Follow-up Post:

For a little bit more, but who knows with negotiation ... $30k in San Diego .... neat seats
http://sandiego.craigslist.org/car/301150300.html

or $25k in SFO
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/car/301294853.html

or $23k in SFO
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/car/301357370.html

or $24k in Philly (better than new ;-)
http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/car/289758168.html

or $24k in Austin (not pic of actual D90 for sale, but similar ;-)
http://austin.craigslist.org/car/295373538.html

or $23.5k in Spring TX, down from $26k a few weeks back
http://houston.craigslist.org/car/299756721.html

or $26k in W.Virginia
http://morgantown.craigslist.org/car/287260217.html

Best of luck,

Karl.
