Wonder what it drives like. Could you use it as a daily driver?

Are you in a Cayenne? Driver must have thought you were crazy - looks like you passed him on the right then on the left haha.

I can never tell if that's the blue 110 I have the original front doors to (JohnsD90's friend) or the one ECR did. Both trucks look great - probably the one I saw last years submerged in the water taking their boat out for the season.

Apparently loud and drives like shit. It looks cool as hell though, and for transporting boards, and friends with their boards, there's probably nothing more practical!

Thinking bikes. Looked damn cool even if it sucks to drive.

Yeah, I thought I may get some blowback for driving the cayenne when I make such a big deal of my 110 being my daily driver. However, when you need to make it from Duxbury to Worcester in a little over an hour, it's a no-brainer which vehicle I'm taking. There were cobwebs on the steering wheel i drive it so little-no kidding!

Also, I would have never caught up to the driver if I were in the 110, he was hauling ass!

Keith, Yes, I think that's 4/500. Snapped some photos of it last summer at ACK airport parking.
CT truck

Yeah, knew I may get some blowback for not driving the 110 like I claim to as a daily driver, but when you've got to make it from Duxbury to Worcester and back in 3-hours, it's a no-brainer what I'm going to drive! I do drive the cayenne so infrequently that there were cobwebs on the steering wheel-no kidding!

Also, I would have never caught up to that guy if I were in the 110, he was hauling ass!

Still, now I'm having doubts if that was the 4/500 truck I saw at ACK airport parking last summer. That truck had a rear work light and the one today did not.... Josh will investigate for us

Bit of a double post, sorry.
Posted from iPhone and 1st try "timed out" then wrote entire comment again only to find that it did actually post the first time-frustrating!

Probably a beach criuser from the last Camel Trophy ever held that resembled more of an MTV Real World vs. Road Rules reality show competition, than the earlier Camel Trophies.

Not a D, but I spotted it from the highway passing Lorton VA thinking it was a 110, got off and tracked it down...turned out to be a RHD 109, but after the effort figured I'd post a pic anyhow.

Unfortunately, no Barritts or Reeds for Dark-N-Stormies, just Goslings ginger beer
We will try to get it sorted out tomorrow
Go Oracle!
