On my drive home today in the middle of nowhere I ended up behind a 90. Anybody know this truck? I'm not sure what kind of roof rack that is, it was rhino lined. Also it had terrafirma wheels.

I like both of those. Is your mission to own all of the Trident Green 110s though?

Good looking D2.

YES - that's right, you saw it over in Arlington.. Hence my question. Thanks, Jason.

I think it comes from the perception that the bends don't match the curves (the very few curves) of the Defender, there's a tear drop design into the foot on the driver side which interferes with the visibility of the license plate, and the basket itself is inset from the outside edges of the roof, and it's uncommon to see that. To me, that little basket on top looks like a little tea cup or something.

When the lines and bends don't complement one another, they distract the eye and make it appear that they are not meant for eachother.

Maybe that's a nicer way of saying it instead of just fugly.
