Yea man, we gotta connect, looking forward to seeing your rig.
Regarding the yellow truck on LBI, I saw the same one. The owner parked next to me at Ron Jon, I waited for a bit but had to take off. It was a 95 and one of the cleanest I have ever seen. I hope the owner is on here as I need to find out who did the speakers in the back .... nice custom job.

This would be odd, but like I said that guy Matt I met on Friday had a super clean AA Yellow ST, 1995, and looked like he was heading for the shore with some friends. Did it have large AUX lights mounted to the front bumper that were unnamed? I asked him about them and he said they were just LR Brand.

Spotted a brg st in Westhampton Long Island on Sunday.
Anyone here?

Saw probably 6 Ferraris. Way too common in that area.

I did not look at the bumper... is Matt on the board? May have been the same truck. I know that Chris Vitale also saw the truck on LBI.. he said it had 22k on iit and was mint inside.

Was bicycling by northbound around 7am on 36 maybe friday or saturday morning.
That black 90 ST might be my buddy's new truck. I helped him with a Thule tire rack on Friday. Did it have the stainless side steps and ROX bumper?

Right over the bridge from Sea Bright is a bunch of Defenders. I see at least one a day and I know of at least 10 of them in town. Not to mention a few 110's.

I thought the yellow ST on LBI was a 94 (square brake lights)... nevertheless, the license plate read "TOPLESS". Truck was fairly clean for a life at the shore...the VERY low milage is what impressed me most. I saw it at the uuhhmm... craft fair.

I think it would be an awesome idea to have a MD HH, specially if we can make it within short distance
Id be up for that if it isnt too far from DC/Alexandria

yeah it had bling sidesteps. Didnt realize that there were so many in that town. Never knew there were so many in that town. Maybe we should do happy hour or a sunday morning coffee/donut thing.

There's a Defender HH in Arlington - you don't need to bother with Maryland.

Yes, not to discourage you from attending a MD HH, but there is one closer to you

Welcome to the forums and hope to see you at the next happy hour.

When I was driving back from NCC in Norwalk today, there was a nice D90 in front of me getting on the Merrit pkwy. I thought "another nice D90" to myself, and then when the light went green, I saw a puff of smoke and got psyched to see a diesel. It had a TDi badge, and looked to have a recent(ish) galvy frame swap..

I was driving the old 86 turbo-diesel 2dr golf, and gave the thumbs up as I passed you. Anyone know who it was? It had CT plates..

The Backyardigans (a Nickelodeon cartoon) drive a well-worn white D-90 in the episode "Elephant On the Run." Yes, I have a son who is almost 3.

spotted a red sw on the powite parkway going though a toll. Had 95/97 taillights but sounded and drove like a manual tranny.

Any one on here? I was in a beluga d90 st in the full service lane

Saw a white sw with a rack downtown on Friday and a yellow sw today with a yellow roof. Anyone here?

I don't think so, but I have seen both before. I believe the white SW is owned by a woman and I have seen the yellow SW on 95 south a couple times over the past years.

How could anyone have a defender and not come to this site?

I like the yellow top...don't see that too often.

I have no idea. I usually leave a note. To lots of people it is just a truck.

G-Star denim edition of a 110 Defender ..

http://www.g-star.com/flash/content.html

Click 'RAW Crossover' then 'RAW Defender'

Euro only 110, looks like it's been around for a while but I'd never seen it before yesterday. The paint colour is pretty cool IMHO.
