Thanks Chris (Rovertek) for dropping her off. I appreciate all your hard work. More to be done for sure but psyched its home.

Doubt it. I think he's upstate. Also you are referring to an inanimate vehicle. Dan is a human being. They are quite different.

Spotted this gem in Ft. Pierce Florida. Knocked on door, nobody home. What year do you think it is. I know its hard to tell by pictures, but how much is it worth?

Looks like an early S2. I'm guessing '59 by the early (6 bolt) tailgate. Any pics of the dash? Im guessing it has knobs (not levers) for the scuttle vents. Looks like it has Toyota axles too.

No pictures of dash. I didn't want to stay to long, you know trespass and all, I plan to check again to see if anybodys home. It's very ruff, bulk head is rusty, missing rear window, door cards are sheet alum. Maybe a trail rig or a full resto? Looks like a stainless home made rear bumper and brush guard.

I saw that too when I was down there a couple of weeks ago. On a 2 lane road that goes between 95 and A1A right?

Hahahaha I'd been to that area(sebastian and north) of FL tons since about 1990 but never to Ft Pierce so I figured I'd give it a whirl. Was awesome! Stayed in the old part of the beach(non high rise) in a little place that let you have dogs and was cheap. Cool beach, got good surf, paddle boarding in the river was amazing as well! Shit, I wanna buy that place little Jim's bait and tackle!!! I think that's my new spot for quick FL trips! You in that area?

Yup, born and raised. I live down in Stuart now - better schools. North Jetty has some pretty good waves, then nothing till you get up to Sebastian Inlet and Spanish House. Also, on the south Beach you can run down to the Power Plant at Walton Rocks or further south to Jensen Beach and Stuart Rocks. Next time you come down give a shout and if you can catch these guys playing.

Can we change this thread to "defender sightings while doing important stuff."

With owner permission 100% of the time. Just the right thing to do.

Parked, in commute, and random shopping mall trucks are just sort of not fair to the owners...this thread may be getting used to assist in car theft(s)...do you guys want to have a stolen car's owner search this site, find pictures of his/her truck and then figure out a clever way to blame you...... It is just not fair to do that to people. Given what is going on in England (lots of theft), only a matter of time before people do it here...why help them?
