Looks like it has a carport (or is it carpass?) decal. Perhaps a UK truck temporarily allowed to drive here in the US under a tourist visa.

If you look in the window you can see what looks like temp tags that you get when purchased from a dealer.

That's exactly what I'm talking about... I think it's called a carport... (aka passport for cars) when you take your car to a foreign country and intend to drive it there temporarily, they issue this and you have to have it on the vehicle just like a temp tag.

At least that's what it looks like from what I can tell. Cool car though...

Upon landing a few days ago somewhere to work with some guys, I saw this colossal piece of awesomeness. I thought at first it might be a Wolf/XD, but it's actually something even more special.

airborne - I've seen that red NAS with the Thule rack around town. That Thule rack is a bitch to install so I remember them especially.

The Green UK one I've seen in Eatontown and Shrewsbury. Last I saw it, it had fresh springs and shocks and a little lift. Would love to cross paths with the guy and see/hear exactly what he's got.

Based on those Camel stickers, it looks like Mike Deery - "isleofbones" from Hicksville.

Looks great in my opinion.
Thanks Again,
Mike

Have you not seen the VW commercials? turning around and chasing the defender down for a picture should be well within the norm for a test drive.
