Yup, they had driven up from SD for the day for an even at the Azusa Canyon OHV area. Niell was nice enough to pick up a kelty roll up camping table that my cousin had picked up off of craigslist a few months ago on my behalf and give it a ride up north. Thanks again Niell!

I met this local guy recently but can't remember his name. He imported it recently from MRM and was disappointed in the finish work and overall condition. He told me he was having the guys in upperville fix things up right and possibly do a lhd conversion.

don't know if this qualifies as a sighting, but I took Sam Staley's Series IIA to a Johnston and Muprhy catalog shoot here in charleston today. Was cool and of course ever guy on the set told me they wanted one. Definitely was a great spot for a photo shoot!

BTW, thanks again to Doug for the sage advice - just dropped by Tonys for a new muffler and tailpipe: $232, took 35 minutes.

Damn that's cheap! What muffler did you end up going with? Did they match the routing of the stock tailpipe well? Any pics? I was thinking of ordering a Flowmaster ($80) and genuine LR tailpipe ($140) and doing it myself but for that price I'm thinking Tony's!

I actually want to do an option twin-tip setup (where I have the routing of the tailpipe straight back and high for wheeling, but can bolt on another section that will extend the tip out the side for highway use). Huff and I were talking about this, and after seeing plenty of tailpipes pinched close on the trail seemed to make sense...my current routing goes straight back and high which is great and never gets in the way, but when running the highway with a surrey and trailer you tend to suck a lot of exhaust into the truck.

Bought whatever they had in the shop. Matched the routing, as far as I can tell. I've blown $2500 on body parts over the last couple months, so decided to economize and not send the wife into another hatin frenzy. Yes, I'll probably be back in 2 years, but don't care.

Wifey just spotted (in her words) "a MINT NAS 90 SW with an awesome roof rack" being flat towed on the blue route just outside Philly. Anybody here?

Spotted on 394 near Wayzata, MN... Mint looking Green ST. Seems he was enjoying the last nice day until spring. Have never seen this one around town so thinking someone just picked it up.
