Kind of a cool looking truck. Have any interior shots?

Unfortunately didn't, but it was done well.

Small world and a popular rig...

This beautifully restored Series III was seen on Coney Island Avenue this morning. This is a very smart looking truck.

Not really a sighting, but when filling up my D at Dulles airport this morning, a guy shouts out the window of his rental. Said to have a NAS 110 and a 91 RRC (his favorite car, ever). Lives in California. Name was John or Jonathan. Did not know about this forum. Told him to check it out. The typical morning chaos at this station limited our conversation to 10 seconds. Anyone here know of him?

I'm guessing the story is they got stuck, realized the winch bumper doesn't have a winch, then had to walk.

I saw a red Defender 90 on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn, NY

I tried to get a pic but the driver had no interest in getting closer to the truck.

Saw something very disturbing today in Alfred, Maine. It was a white 110 (sounded like a diesel) that looked like it may have started out as an NAS but actually had one of those campers that fit into the bed of a pickup truck glommed onto the back of it.

Looked something like this:

Nice Series in Leesburg, VA. I would like to think Jonesy hitting the local bar, but rumor has it is here for another purpose.
