Green 90 south bound on the parkway sunday morning

Saw a green hardtop 90 with a bike rack on the back, the kind that wraps over the top of the spare tire. Was heading southbound on the parkway, south of the rest stop thats after the raritan bridge toll. I was cruising northbound in the S3 battlewagon heading to the Monmouth Rover dealership event.

I've seen this in Mclean and Rockville.. it's nice.

Saw an early 80's UK 110 in downtown Seattle twice this weekend. RHD, Conniston green, alpine white top. Had snorkel mounted through the side of the right wing; but no engine designations on it. Reasonably nice condition.

Would have looked it over closer, but could tell I was making the large dog perched in the back a bit nervous...

I just saw a real nice green 109 in Washington, NC with NC Antique Auto plates. Real surprise to see one of those around here!

Airborn - was that your Battlewagon in the front of Brennan's Deli today in Rumson? If so, very very cool looking Series. Love the fender fold. Looks like it would be an animal off road.

Afraid that wasn't my truck. Mines a 5 door station wagon siting on a military chassis and suspension. Also has almost no paint, with mostly bare aluminum showing. Has the spare tire on the hood as well.

If there was a big dent in the rear quarter panel it was me.

Ahhh, yeah I should have seen the 109 in your sig. This was an 88' Very cool looking but needed some new tires - the skinny BFG MT's on it were shot and dry rotted. Anyway - it's a green Series IIA (I think) - no top, custom work on the fender trim (like and inch or 2 folded out), all RhinoLined on the inside. Looked around for an owner but couldn't figure who it might be. Had the 'Burban as the 90 had a bumper barely on sitting in the garage.

Know what you mean about having parts sitting when they should be on the truck lol. My father and I drove around yesterday afternoon on Ocean ave from the windmill in West Long Branch, past Sandy Hook, around Highlands then down, over that Rumson/Highlands bridge(dont know name). Then drove through Rumson, past that restaurant that you talked about the other day, on down to Red Bank and on home in the D90 with the new doors from Rover Accessories that i bought off from Davis which are the sh** and the old man was way impressed. Changed the whole look of the truck.

You weren't far at all from my house - we'll need to meet up one day.

That sounds like a great drive with the top off and doors especially.

saw a 110 blasting down route 495 in wrentham 6/18.
I was in the middle lane doing 60 mph and he basted by me....had to be doing 80.It had a black cage.

then leaving the cape on route 6 near exit 2 saw a 110 again.. dont know if it was the same truck.
he could have been heading to hyannis to catch the boat to nantucket.

Bethany Beach, Delaware

Saw two - a Beluga Black and an AA Yellow. Both were fly-bys as we were heading from Bethany Beach to Fenwick Island, so I didn't get info, but it was cool to see 'em.

Just got back from Costa Rica and saw more series rovers than defenders. I saw most when i was traveling through the country between the airstrip in Tambor and Mal Pais. Alot of my photos were from a moving vehicle and came out real blurry. Did pass a good looking 130 on my way back. Land Cruisers new and old were everywhere. They seemed to outnumber every vehicle I saw. Very few paved roads in that part of the country.
