Funny - If you zoom up on the windshield you can see the note I put in the left wiper blade begging him to sell to me.

That's awesome. I've only seen other D90s down there during the 30A Rover Rally.

Is this the first time when two members saw the same truck in the same spot?

That was my favorite book. Made me want a Lancia until I found out how crappy they are.

I was driving Trey's 110 today and was running 68 in a 60 zone. I see a trooper coming up behind me and just hold what I have. After a min I realize he's right beside me and holding. I look over and he's staring @ me and gives the truck a thumbs up and then hauls off over the horizon.

Thats too cool.

There does seem to be an undercurrent of respect among Early Rovers and local law enforcement. When I dicked around with early 911's I lost my license and got every possible ticket combination I could imagine. I've never received any kind of ticket, parking or otherwise in a Defender.

Nice 110 in Reggio Calabria. Not so sure about the orange accents. Even the seat piping was orange as was the dash trim.

I was cutting through a residential area last month, the speed limit is 25, I was going faster than that and said to myself, I better slow down just as I see the officer in the bushes, he pulled me over and said I was going 40 in a 25, I gave him my license, he went back to his car, he comes back and said , "your car is way to cool to give you a ticket". He went on to tell me about his vacation in Italy and all of the defenders that he saw over there, needless to say it made my day,

My defender is right hand drive so that always confuses people (especially the elderly) in Florida. One day I plan to seat someone in the passenger seat with some random steering wheel at the same time that I'm driving. The amount of confusion that ensues will be detectable on the Richter scale. In Japan.
