did you live in alaska? I have lots of questions ... I think my fiancee would love to go to Alaska ... as long as no animal murder was involved .... she puts her hands in front of her face all the way up the pallisades to avoid seeing any road kill ...

In London for a few days... surprisingly few in the city. 6 total spotted. 4 in Notting Hill. 1 two door G-Wagen.

only about 12 years... plus I have hiked in a lot of areas (with a gun of course)... When I get back we will set up a wrench day at the new house.. If you send her there alone she probably won't come back.

Spotted in the French Quarter in NOLA this past Saturday. Who's is it?

Sorry for the lousy pic, but my wife and kids took it, which is impressive. I was parking the car and met up with them on another street, so never saw it myself.

Probably due to the restrictions they have in place for what kind of vehicles you can drive in the city now.

There are a lot of 90s in Notting Hill. The tdci qualifies for the emissions based discount to drive into central London. I believe the td5 did not.

Edsall road. Just wow. I used to play little league over there, on the opposite side of 495. Like, in 1978.

I'm sure it's a mini-mall or housing development now!

Not a Defender, but I thought it was cool seeing this old-timer in Huntington, NY.

We were just watching AFV -Americas Funniest Videos - and they had a clip of a few people running on a beach and it looked like a british racing green defender 90 soft top with the top of in the background parked on the beach.

Saw this BRG D90 at Preston and Forest today, only other BRG Defender I've seen around town. He had a Texas Rovers bumper sticker. Anyone here?

I saw the 97LE Friday in Asheboro, I was on the Classic.

Been seeing the 94 on boosts regurly az well as the Arles JAP SW, neither owners seem very interested in Land Rovers.

Didn't have time to snap a pic, but I saw a black 110 - looked like 2007 or newer style with HIDs around 350 on Hulls Farm Road, Southport CT, pull into Salko Farm. I work in the area and have seen many 90's and a few 110's but never this one. Anyone on here?

Green hard top D90 in Oakland, CA. Anyone on this forum? Was in good condition, looked like there were 4 jump seats in the back.
