Speaking of defender sightings, this is my friends (his dad's) NAS D90 that they had restored (FULL resto). Finally got a picture of it because he refuses to drive it in rain(which it does a lot in Florida). The soft top gets a bit saggy and eventually leaks

I don't know about the metallic green but it's pretty sick.

I think the Dakars are a 12 spoke, those look like the 16 spoke Blindo.

Do you know this guy? Saw his truck in Groton up the street from a friend's house today. Knocked on the door, the guy who answered said it belongs to his son-in-law.
That's mine and Rover Rabbit Rachael's (AKA THE WIFE). Doing the Christmas run around out of state/getting ready to get stationed out in Bangor, WA.

Spotted this in Mockingbird Station in Dallas today, wasn't quite sure what it was but it looked like a Rover at heart. Got to meet the owner who confirmed it was part Range Rover and had a 3.9 under the hood.

My buddy Joey was riding around in that the other day, said it was absurd.

I think that's the 1992 Tomcat that North Texas British had up for sale awhile back. Here is the picture of it off their FB page.

A link...I was curious about what it was too... http://www.tomcatmotorsport.co.uk/

I was over in Newport Beach looking at the used Rovers. Around the back they had this sitting there. It looks like something newer then a NAS 1997. And it has mexico plates on too so I presume its something much newer.

Nice puma for sure, and most definitely legal in Mejico!
