I still need to visit a curry house before I leave.

It's a 1994 with a POE top.

I had fish in chips for lunch today in Dublin! You definitely need to get chips and curry sauce. The best Indian food I've had has been in Ireland and England.

To keep things on topic, I saw a d90 van with a snorkel at the airport in Dublin.

The first defender I saw on this trip was a 110 at Heathrow.

And then I've seen just a couple more in London.

I went to Paris today and I've seen more than I've seen in London all week. I even saw a 130 that appeared to be a tow truck, I think.

tow trucks in paris are often defenders that have lowered roof lines to get into the car parks ... they also use land cruisers ... interesting things when you see them!

Oh and the French love english things ... they don't like to admit it ... but they do ... ask my wife! ;-)

I about crapped my pants and spit out my coffee at the white unicorn sighting of this nice 110 heading north on the Oki expressway in Japan. This is a rare sight in Oki.

I'm pretty sure I saw some 70 series land cruiser tow trucks. But I didn't realize what they were until I read this.

was coming back from Baldewin's house this afternoon around 4.00 and spotted an AA yellow ST with Safari Gard Sliders parked on the east side of Hacienda between Colima and the 60.

Ok here goes the worst sighting photo ever, since I can't even see the truck and I was the one who took the photo, but at least I tried.

I just saw a NAS Green D90 SW with a slight lift and bumperettes on the rear, driving in the West Village.

Josh that is a non-sighting, or rather, a neo-sighting. You might as well have taken a selfie and have been just as credible, as there is no D in that pic. You also took it in beer-google-vision so that doesn't help.

Moderator, delete Josh's post please.

Probably a Mitsubishi Pajero or something.

Hah. I agree. You can sort of see the truck if you look between the white and black cars, you can see a white roof up ahead, and that's the Defender with its driving lights on. Worst photo ever though...I'd agree.

You could report the thread and then the moderators ... (Who take a dim view of false sighting claims) . Would review the evidence.

Here are a few pix to share from my Costa Rica trip. Stayed at the new Andaz resort in the Papagayo peninsula- a very nice place...Was hoping to rent a D90 but too $$$ so we took a new Land Cruiser Prado Tdi. However, we spotted several 110s and RRC in Liberia area, the series trucks in the Monteverde region and a few 90, 110 and 130s in Tamarindo. My wife thought I was nuts taking these pix and more..
