Very nice.

I saw an earlier green 110 this morning on its way up 6th Ave - I think it was on its way to turn West onto Greenwich. It was raining, so between holding a coffee, gym clothes, and an umbrella I did not get a photo of it in action.

I have seen a nice green 110 in the village too. Been a long time but I wonder if it is the same one.

This one had a hard top (didn't you say there was a green ST?) and wasn't beautiful, just a nice example of an early 110 with a white top.

There is a NAS 110 green beach runner (http://the4x4center.com/b/restoration/defender-110-1993) in the village and there is a green early 110 hardtop. All I remember about it is the color and I thought it had the plastic disc on the spare.

Wait, it was that one? I thought that one was your buddy's truck (he had a white SW) the "no boring cars" guy.

Saw this D-90 in Rowayton CT today. It's for sale and I took a picture of the "for sale" sign. If anyone wants the info, let me know.

Also in Rowayton I saw a BRG D-90 with a tan Badger top. Had copley license plate frame.

A friend of mine works out at the same place as the owner of this 110 and has talked with him about my 90 - I've been meaning to contact him and get him on here as he's a serious LR enthusiast (may be on here already of course).

Not Defenders, but still cool. On Friday I saw this Mercedes G500 Cabriolet and a Porsche GT3 RS perhaps cup replica?

Saw a RHD green 90 in Long Island City last night. It was just brought in (still had shipping sticker on the windshield). Either a 200 or 300tdi, late 90s body. Nice looking truck. I believe I saw it on ebay.uk a few months ago.

I've seen that Gwagen before in Westchester and Tribeca. There was a guy in Nyack who was buying and reselling the federalized ones before Mercedes began bringing in the G500. I think it was one of his.

That's what my gf said, too. I think some of them look good (maybe in black?), but most just look like a Suzuki Samurai soft top to me...with a nicer tire cover and interior.

the hardtops look OK ... not a fan in general ... if you want a luxury capable off roader ... buy a new rangie ...

2nd Puma in Queenstown, NZ last night... another black with snorkel but no roll cage or safari rack.

Series in Wanaka, NZ today...

There were more Land Rovers / Ranger Rovers in Queenstown than I could count. Tons of Disco's, Range Rovers of all ages... bunch of D90's and D110's. More than I remember seeing in the UK... notice the oil leaks on the ground in the Puma shot
