Don't forget, I managed to turn fetching my trailer tub and doing some wheeling in Vermont into a family vacation a few years back too. Mad skills is what the kids call it.

On this trip my family figured out if they yell "Defender" it gets my attention when nothing else does

I'll post more pics later this week when I get the chance.

Took my kids for ice cream at the local drive-in and parked next to this 95 D90 (his on the left). His truck is super clean, with only 16k miles, Badge 3036.

16k miles? I'm assuming all he does is take it for ice cream?

Apparently so, he said he bought it 12 years ago with 6k miles on it. He said the tires were original.

I've seen that truck before. It looks alright from far away, but it's basically rusted to pieces if you take a look underneath. It was a really nice stock truck before he added a bunch of crap to it - I think that Prius is his too, actually.

Yeah the gutter kit I think devalued it as did the bike rack. The rust has really taken hold all over the truck. It should be sold for parts. I'm not even sure if anything can be salvaged from it.

One of the panels actually FELL of the truck going around that corner. Poor guy had to stop and gather up the bits and pieces.

Spotted the white 90 SW below in Dallas on June 9th... I actually drove past twice in a friend's car and saw the owner getting into the truck the second time (my friend didn't share the Defender love enough to stop).

It left a trail of steering fluid. Thankfully no clutch fluid could be seen on the street.

Probably should consider getting a new friend.

Thats the same truck I posted on June 4th. I have seen it a couple of times now but haven't seen the owner yet.

You have digital gadgets up the wazoo in your truck, but no camera phone?
