Whoops...sorry Ed, but at least I put a cool shot of it!
Looks like a 100 inch hybrid.
It's called Russet Brown. As in potato.

Was that NAS black or green - kinda hard to tell in the pic. I haven't seen a black with hardtop on it in the area but will look out for it.

You were right in my (and airborne's and bossman's) neck of the woods. My homies and I ride pedal bikes in a small zone near that area of the pic. Woody's is good and Sea Bright Pizza is a good stop as welll (it's right across the street). Bunch of good places in Red Bank but man you need to watch out for some of the cheese.

Hit up Hartshorne or Huber Woods next time you are down - bike or hike. Either way you get to be on trail even though it's not in the Landie. I did some TM work at Hartshorne this past Saturday morning. I usually bring the 90 to carry tools to remote spots but the starter blew up on it in SeaBright on Friday night and I had to bring stuff in via the 'Burban.

It was Black.

Next time I am in the area I will shoot you guys a PM and if you are ever planning a wrench day I can shoot down in the mornings on the weekends...

Hum.... What's up with the white lettering on the sidewall? .... Oh wait.... I can't reading anything.... Were those letters

Agreed though, nice pic of Ed's 90.

9 out of 10 people that come up to me in a parking lot will first have to ask what year my land rover is. What is it about knowing the year is burning everyone up? I'm too close to it to get it, but I can't imagine the year being the first thing I would want to know. For a vehicle that hasn't changed significantly in over 50 years to the layman's eye, the year should be rather irrelevant. When they are standing by my rig as I'm going in or coming out, you can see in there eye that they know they have about 1 question they can get out of a stranger before their time has run out.

Perhaps they think it is unique and looks old. How old? From the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s? They don't know or have a clue that a Defender hasn't changed much in a half century, hence the question.

That's a board member that just got new tires. He also mentioned the tire shop threw away his steel lug nuts so he had to run the alloys.

Nice looking rig IMO.

Just returned from a couple of weeks in Europe and London. Of course there were many Defender sightings there, which isn't the point of this thread. Nevertheless, I just had to post a couple of favorites.

This one was seen in Gent, Belgium. I loved how this one was all dirty and muddy. Clearly an enthisiastic owner.

The second one was seen in Roelofarendsveen, Netherlands. I had a chat with the owner, who had driven down from Norway. He was well aware of the NAS models and was interested to know that I had one.

Don't hate. It's not nice.

Just needs those swanky stripes Doug listed in another thread.

Br 110?

I didn't snap this shot, but my network IT guy grabbed this shot on the way to the cape last week.
Either Rte 3 or Rte 6 (can't be sure because I didn't take the pic)

Never seen this around before, but it does live in MA. Maybe an ACK truck?

Anyone here? Josh will know for sure.
