2001? Jimmy Buffet??

Any one seen this thing? I guess the VIN in the description is probably to a series, but given the possible PO then who cares.

it has changed hands alot lately, and that does appear to be the same truck that they claim JB owned. not sure if it's true or not.

The Seller is Wayne Carini from Discovery Channel's "Chasing Classic Cars." Hopefully they know what they're talking about...

JB has been into LR's for a long time. He still owns or used to own a 1993 NAS 110. As I understand it the vehicle was won at a charity auction/raffle here in GA. Then it was sold by the "winner". Curious that it still has GA title when it is located in CT now.

I saw this truck in person years ago, and I know someone who has seen it in last few months... and it is still a POS. Up close it looks like it was built from UK junkyard parts. It was built by Harland Rover in the UK before the DOT shut them down for illegal imports.
With NAS 110 proces down a bit right now there are FAR better NAS 110s out there for sale right now for what the reserve is on this mess (even has a mess of a title). It was Buffets a long time ago, but he did not own it for long. Might be good as a fixer upper for a DIY guy on the cheap, but nothing more. IMO.
This truck did sell last time it was on ebay, so that means either the buyer never came up with the $$ or when they actually saw it in person they said, "No way!"
There are better and cheaper ways to get a non-NAS 110... unless you want to pay for the fact the Buffet touched this one a few times.

Looks like a standard grille for a 110 with A/C, but I wouldn't know the difference between that and a TD5 grille, if there is one.

I bought one of those Harland 110's about five or six years ago. Could not wait to make it go away. Mike is spot on about the quality. Horrible things.
