Why don't you use him as your ride back North, since you are too chicken to ride the Dawg.

Damn...sort of a good idea - but isn't he already "north"? Technically where he is in VT is north of me. But damn I could've driven down and caught a ride back up with him. We were aiming to get it down this week, but Pedro's flight fell apart (as did just about every structure on my end - sprung a leak on my roof, tenant told us they are leaving a rental property so we're in fix-up mode, and had some boat repairs to do). So we sort of are back to square-1 with that, and my free time went out the window as I play Johnny-Fix-It.

Yep. Strawberry Festival Parade on Vashon had a few Rovers this time. It will likely be an annual thing now.

I assumed there was a mobile barbershop in the back.

Only half random as the green one is mine - but it was random that I was eating at the same place the owner of the G4 was eating - so took advantage of the photo opportunity.

Saw this 95 in Malibu today. I think it was yellow originally. Painted flat green, rhinolined inside. Kinda crappy but it had a new interior that looked really nice.

I actually kind of like the flat green. Looks like a 90 version of Wolf's truck.

I liked it too. I just had some spots on the belt rail where it was chipping off. It had a bunch of locker switches on the dash.

The seats looked comfortable. Nice I see they redid the back to match.

I like that color too. Hmmmm??? If I ever need to repaint I have always pondered going a flat khaki.

You have to like the keys left in the Tuffy box! Perhaps is it one of those police bait vehicles. LOL

Those vent holes in the bonnet remind me of the second Series I ever drove, a Steve Parker Ford V8 conversion (and also the first RHD I ever drove)
