Cool Rover at the T-Rex Rest. Downtown Disney

Hey Guys,

While taking my son to the LEGO store last night I saw this rover parked across the way at the T-REX dining area. I have never looked at an older rover and this one has a brass windshield frame.
These things are so COOL!

My wife and daughter both noticed that when we had dinner there Friday. For a moment my 4yr old was more excited about the Defender than the dinosaurs inside...but just for a moment

It is in Downtown Disney and near the lego store and the steamship crab restaurant. Fun for the kids. Food was OK.

Brass? It is galvanized steel.

I was there 2 weeks ago. Thought it was great. Took a bunch of photos just like yours : )

Overheard the obligatory "Go stand by that jeep" from a lady to her kids. Funny how many guys were crawling all over it (and how few women seemed attracted to it, most of all my wife...)

You're never too old to climb up on those Series racks. This was from this year's Far Hills Steeplechase out here in NJ.

Today we went to Disney's Animal kingdom and saw this as we exited the safari ride.
I'm amused as I have only seen 2 older rovers in my area *

it does make you wonder where these machines have been in their lifetime!

What's the over/under on how long before a member gets in trouble for trying to scavange parts off one of the WDW Rovers?
