I know, not a Defender... One of our customers 1974 Series III's with a tropical top... Always loved this one.

I look young. I think he's in his 20'a. He lives near me in Bay Ridge. We'll bump into each other someday.

I failed to get a picture, but the other day at the Stratton Open Space here in COS I was parked next to a green ROW 90. I was in my 97. I have seen this truck before on the board - it is lifted with flexi-flares, an aluminum roof rack, and ARB bumper. I think it was for sale recently.

haha, I will start using the mental (or I guess even metal (alum, galvy, stainless)) illness excuse from now on for my behavior.

He had a wire short, every time he would go wheeling it would stall. I'm pretty sure we fixed it, but took a couple times to locate the real issue.

Then on the way back to Florida I stopped at St. Simons Island for a beer and some BBQ ribs and saw this ExMoD 90 for sale. The guy wanted $18,000 and the dash was all ripped out and all kinds of parts shoved in the back.

My brother lives in Boone, checked this one but lost immediate interest when they wanted $49k for it. I imagine it will sit in that college town a while at that price.

We where up there at our cabin three weeks ago! It is a killer truck, super clean! I know Rick I built bumpers for him while at industrial design school at App.

Brian, I just put a contract on 17 acres and a cabin in Sugar Grove. I will definatly have my Rover up there this summer you will have to show me some trails.

Matt, looking at what else was on the lot a price like that dosen't suprise me. It was nice but it was no garage queen that's for sure.

Our cabin is off Snaggy Mountain, just off 105.Big rock is really the only thing that I know, along with the fire tower! We are up at our cabin a much as we can! Rick at High Country has been building Brute trucks for ten years! It is pulling a premium but what can you expect from a used car lot. Love the area, spend most of our time at the vineyards! Especially in banner elk
