Here are all of the Defenders I saw in the USA during a recent coast to coast assessment:
Holler of I saw your car!

Philadelphia - Chestnut Hill - An Awesome Series 2 88:



New Orleans - A body swapped 2011 Crew Cab but a 1985 VIN Plate and chassis and a 300 TDI engine ... note they put the VIN plate on upside down! Nice owner but knew nothing about the car or Defenders. Sold to him by a company in Florida .... Hmmmm?








------ Follow up post added June 5th, 2014 02:33 PM ------

Denver - This D90 was parked in the REI flagship store parking ... must belong to staff.



Del Mar California (San Diego) - I was out for my morning run on the beach/train tracks when I chased down this D90 to a beachfront house. This awesome couple had this sweet D90 they keep in covered storage all winter.





They told me this White D90 (around the corner) belongs to a local chef.






------ Follow up post added June 5th, 2014 02:34 PM ------

Venice Beach - Visiting Deus Ex Machina USA when I saw this sweet Series 2 Dormobile with a Brownchurch rack was just sitting there waiting for me to steal it.




This Series 3 88 was parked in Berkley, Ca and looked like it hadn't run in a while.

Finally a D90 found in San Francisco. Very nice.

It was originally RHD if that makes any difference.

It looks like it was imported by PATTERSON AUTO SALES - DAVID JEE in WILMINGTON, NC

Yep it was a RHD originally maybe they did a RH 2 LH swap or a full body swap here in the USA. The CalVIN says it is supposed to be a RHD 1983-84 2 door pickup with a 2.5 Diesel.

It would never have passed the new CBP jihad standards . Patterson Sales seems to bring in allot of rovers these days.

Do the RHD have the vin plate facing that direction, so you can read it from the right side of the vehicle?

Yes I think RHD VIN Plates face outward on the right side.

Posting a bond at the Arlington VA magistrate, looked outside and saw a Coniston Green NAS ST roll by on Courthouse Rd. No time to snap a pic though.

Knock the first "1" off the price and it would still be optimistic

Is it just me or does that drivers side tub panel appear to be a different color than the rest of the vehicle? I and about ten others probably have spotted that white D90 as well as the blue one in Charleston at this point. The last time I saw it the top was ill fitting.

This 90 has been sitting in that same general area since I was in high school. Surprised the tires aren't dry rotted. Kind of a shame as that salt air is slowly eating it away.
