I just moved to Charlotte and spotted a built red D90 today - I caught it out of the corner of my eye and couldn't tell if it was a ST or not.

That truck looks terrible. SALDV2286RA943494 plaque 1482 - I was hoping I could find an old pic of it before they did that crap to it, but no luck.

I was thinking it looks like a 80s YJ renegade that they were selling back then with the plastic paneling.

You've also gotta love how basically the entire brake light on the passenger side is covered. Some real thought went into that build right there.

LOL. You guys are mean! You can't see from my crappy pics, but the grille was painted gloss black, too. Well, at least it wasn't white. Yeah, the whole thing looked a bit chav, really.

So who is the dealer in Ohio then?

I remember that build. What's up with the hood though?

Did RN make you create your own account?

Sorry, didn't realize that I was still logged in on that account. I just created it for off-topic posts that weren't really RN related. I still run both accounts.

Also, are you referring to matte finish of the bonnet or the holes?

Negative, his vehicle only shows up once in the magazine, as a Beluga Black truck for the tan soft top image on page 64.

Weird. Could have sworn I read something about him in like a "meet us" type of excerpt. He had brown hair and was a little chubbier and I could have sworn he was talking about his Arles Blue truck.

Sexy tan top. I'm sure that was not cheap.
