Great pics! Was that white Fastback featured in an off road magazine back in the 90s? There was a chick who drove/modified it. Other than my neighbor's NAS 110, that article made me a believer.

No that's my girl friend and she drives a 94 NAS most of the time . The white one is mine but she takes it and leaves me in a series when we go out . This is hers a super clean 94

Thanks it was fun we had 3 new drivers out there and they had fun skating around on the ice :-)
It looks like it's been cut down from a larger basket or something like that . You could PM Johnathan and he will let you know .

He made it, it was on his old build thread.

This hill was a little slick coming down , with a little help from a winch on the back this rig was back on the trail . Notice the tree the ARB bumper took down . The bumper held up good only a scratch .

Ugh, didn't need to see those pics of my 110, although I am glad it's getting out and seeing some trails/snow.

I built the "bonnet basket". The intent is for it to carry stuff you immediately need to get to while on the trail - like recovery gear and such. Comes in handy instead of constantly grabbing stuff out of the truck.

We were all slogging thru water with wet feet, but the air is pretty dry out there and was about 6-8 knot wind .

Well I guess it sports some fancy souped up winch front, but apart from that, I see an external front shock setup which I have yet to do on mine...anything else worth a note or out of the box in the suspension department of that vehicle?

Love those Walker Evans wheels...

P.S.
I just realized it's probably your own D90, isn't it?
