Blue D-90 (didn't look like NAS spec? ) heading west on I-4 in Orlando. Around Winter Park? Any one here? I was in my White 97 ST.

That was me! I just saw you out of the corner of my eye, too late to wave, but did think to myself what are the chances of seeing another defender on i4!

It's an 84 d90 RHD, 2.5 diesel, was quite noisy out there on the highway!

That's too cool, I never see any Defenders here in town. Spotted a white SW last year in Winter Park but I was in my other Rover so the guy never looked my way. Amazing how we can spot Defenders heading in the opposite direction on very busy highways at 70 mph. My wife thinks I'm nuts when i do spot one. She just doesn't understand

For the record, every single rover catches my eye in traffic, all the time. I may be over-the-top green, but I see everything: Disco I's and II's, RRC's, P38's, MkIII's, LR3 and 4's, Sports...even Freelanders.

I actually get more thumbs up and waves from MKIII's than any other owner type.

I've seen that on 270, in Arlington, Mclean and Great Falls. Looks like a daily driver. I think it's coniston green with a SD cage/basket.

Green D90 SW with a white roof on Falls Road getting on to 695 East at 8:30am. Truck looked in great shape. Had MD tags with a Copley license plate holder. Wonder if its one of those ECR 90s.
