I will have to get a pic of it and post it here but our local Outback has a H1 with their name plastered all over it. They should have used a 110!

I would think that would violate their franchise agreement!

Funny, the Outback near me here in CA had/may still have a H1 plastered with outback stickers as well. I couldn't help but think that there is nothing Austrailian about a H1.

I don't know. The sun and shadows make it difficult to be certain. If it is BRG that would mean there are 2 97 BRGs in the Memphis area.

No, not really. Except for the guy's voice on the commercials.

Just to keep this thread on track, here is a ST that my girlfriend spotted here in Carmel. I followed him in my 90 one time but I don't think he saw me.

I'm not sure, but unfortunately ever since they launched their ads with the 110, I can't go there anymore in my rig. It's just too cliche, since mine looks almost identical.

Every ad with that truck seems to involve driving through salt water. I'm surprised it hasn't rusted away

As capable as a vehicross is offroad, it doesn't count as a defender sighting.

So does Jonathan have his brother swiping 30s off the unsuspecting for the red 90 project? Aren't those the temporary wheels and tires that were on the green truck?

My understanding is that the Frosted Flakes Mobile beat the times of the NYC crew at ROTR last weekend.
