So I was driving home yesterday passing a body shop and this 90 was parked out front. It looked like a ROW that had been brought up to date so I stopped to have a look. It turns out it is the owner of the shops truck but he is not around. The Secretary tells me that he found it in Spain and imported it, it evidently is only a few years old. Hopefully I will see it there again when the owner is around to ask him how he got it here. The badge on the back said Black Edition 25/80

I usually don't like ROW or non NAS 90s but that truck is nice!

Is "parking" not a requirement to pass the Texas road test?

I think those lines are more of a suggestion than a rule.

Wonder if it's broken down. Parked in the disabled spot after all.

Let's hope it's broken down, because I'm sure the owner of the shop isn't a self-centered twat that would park his truck indefinitely in a handicapped spot that one of his customers might actually need, but can't use because the owner wants to show off his truck.

Right?

I hate to be "that guy" posting a sighting without a picture, but it was 11:30pm and a pic was not possible.
Route 3 south between exits 14-13, white 110 ST, yes, I said soft top. But it wasn't an ECR BR, but definitely an ROW. I pulled up next and offered an enthusiast thumbs up, but it was dark.

Figures! One of the only times I'm not actually driving my 110, I bump into another 110 on the highway. Tonight I was just another douche in a fast car.

Is this a RonP sighting?

If it had a tan soft top, it was probably this one as it's been for sale again in your area on Craigslist the past few months.

Horsey Stalking Special Ops is back on the "A" game!
Yep, that's the truck, it had a huge For Sale sign in the side window.
Tail lights were out (not good on the highway at night), but I remember thinking that if I try to flag him down to pull over, he'll either think I'm some Defender wannabe or stalker.

Not a defender sighting, but I just realized this place is the perfect drive thru for RHD cars.
