They're not exactly what you'd expect to see on a Defender...more like an Escalade.

Red rag top 90 with Huge a$$ silver front bumper

Sea bright downtown area a couple of nights ago as i was driving north bound on 36. Was parallel parked on the south bound side with a for sale sign in the drivers window. I mean this bumper was huge and very flat on the vertical also had very large brush bar as well. Either homemade or custom.

You seriously need to start carrying a phone and taking some pictures. I'm the only one pulling my weight around here!

I'll keep an eye out for it and if so will try to take a pic of the bumper. Wonder if it's listed on autotrader or craigslist?

Saw a NAS 110 at the local garage but looks like a buddies of mine that he keeps up in Nan. I'll have to ask him next time I see him if it's local now.

Spotted in Breckenridge CO

Driving out of town I spotted what appeared to be a 109 Ambulance in a driveway. Having said that, we were flying and I'd just done a 14er on my second day at altitude... Pretty distinctive truck though.

No pictures of the truck but here is a phone-camera shot from the top of Quandary:

Saw a nice 95 or 97 white SW today on Sanibel Island- I couldn't pedal fast enough for a picture but it had an ARB front bumper on it. Few years back on the same island was a sweet 94 conniston ST with a grey painted cage. Odd for such a small place but it's probably like a bigfoot or Marthas Vineyard siting: for every one you see there have to be at least 20 more hiding right by.

Try the Island Cow while you are there! Great place to vacation.

I saw a blue D-90 SW in Salt Lake City the other day driving down 400 South. I noticed it had a roof rack but I didn't get much more of a look than that before he turned. Does anyone know who this is?

Yellow ST in Little Silver NJ

I was having lunch in Little Silver today and this pulled up and parked outside while I wasn't looking. Nice and clean, looked pretty stock.

There is an older lady that has a very clean yellow 90 that drives in the area. There are a few of them but hers has a bench and certainly has a Borla.

I didn't get to hear it (for the Borla), there was a AAA sticker in the rear-driver's side window of the soft-top though.

Is she a red head? If so I have seen her on 35 that day that I saw two d90s within 20 minutes or so.

Talking Green 90 on 35N jersey shore/monmouth mall

Saw a green 90 in the rearview mirror/sideview mirror behind me while i was sitting at the light on 35N and wykoff about 30 minutes or so ago had some type of canvas top on it. Did not get a chance to wave and the truck turned north onto wykoff and i was heading towards Lowes.

I don't think so. Now that I think of it there is another yellow ST in town with the inward facing seats and mudflaps that a lady drives. See it around town and once at LR Monmouth. She could be the red head.
