I did not - never carry a camera with me. A friend of mine told me to check them out on F-chat and I reposted them here. Don't know the actual picture taker's name but all credit should go to him/her. There are some really nice pictures of the Saturday morning C&C on that forum. If there's a copyright issue, I'll be happy to edit my original post.

No, that's what I mean, I've seen them somewhere (unsure where) and they're awesome.. I just need to go to Coffee/Cars again sometime soon.

Not sure how on the 20th page of an obscure thread I'm going to find someone, but...

I keep seeing a willow green (maybe '97 LE?) SW in Barrington, IL with Iowa license plates....

Make yourself known mystery Defender....

No it looks more stock than that. Almost olive drab green including the roof. Here is the shop that did the work. As you can see they do some serious high end stuff.

Sounds like the epsom green truck copley sold a while back. Here is the listing: http://www.copleymotorcars.com/nas_d...3.1vo1657.html

Except this one doesn't have a snorkel? Found a small pic on google.

Actually 87 vs. 187.. different trucks.

Dropped my D90 off at the mechanic today (finally!) and it was crawling with Defenders/Series. There was a Series II or III I didn't get a shot of.

There was an immaculate '97 Yellow D90 in there, just purchased, from Florida. Looked showroom new - again, sorry no photos.

But I did get some shots of the 110 (#433/500) he's working on, came from Georgia on its way to Cali. Beautiful truck, also looks new.

Compared to the rare sightings around me, this was a smorgasbord.

The red series is his project....

Located in NW Burbs of Chicago.

Red Bank NJ this afternoon

Saw a black 95 or 97 Defender today. I was driving west bound on james parker blvd in a blue Disco. It was driving east bound. Looked real nice. I waved to him as he got closer and passed me but i dont think he saw me waving.
