Wasn't paying that much attention. They showed him pulling up an parking, and I could tell it was a black 95 with hellas on the front. They also showed a shot from the inside as he drove along.

Like I can tell one Country Music person from another. All I was interested in was the Rover content.

I recall that one came up on eBay and I *think* the seller was in New York.

Got a chance to take Picts of that yellow ST. It's a 97

#2115
looks showroom new in my opinion.
Wanted to check mileage but the shop guys started eyeing me like I was going to steal it! Probably would if I had the balls. Lol! Might be for sale since it has land rover logo plates like it would have in a dealer showroom. Weird as it is at local garage here.

Saw a Yellow 95 or 97 ST driving up high ridge road in stamford. I was in my 90 but saw it from afar. Loved the weather today.

That looks like the salvaged 1997 LE that was painted black.

Took more pics of the yellow 97 ST.
FYI it was sold at Land Rover Glen Cove for $49.5. Has around 12000 miles.

Good example of a mint unmodified NAS D90 (although I believe it was there to get an alarm and remote start for the new owner)

You can say what you want but that is no 50,000 truck. Fool.

I see a little rust on a few bolts but it is nice for sure. 12000 miles and great condition dictated the price.

its funny I drive by all the time, and I see it has moved. You'd think one of those times the owner and I would cross paths. Its almost like I'm being avoided....

Next time you see it, check if it has a galvy chassis...take a look at the below pics side-by-side, same color/tropical roof/etc. If it's got a galvy chassis, I bet it's the same one.

yep galvy, here's 2 pics from last summer.

While I did rub out the plate number, I can note that the "movie plate" wasn't the same, haha
The amber upper reflector in the movie one differs from the dual-reds here though, I'm not saying thats enough to make it a different vehicle, just wanted to note it.
