What an awesome shot in the side view mirror!!! I mean really cool pro-level marketing-like! The sad inference of the defender being "the past"and "behind us." Can't believe how focused it was! And complete. Very cool pic! Good on ya!

Haha, I just sat there clicking away....picked the best one.

Got some in the main rearview....but they were all pretty terrible. Was kinda neat having 3 generations of the same color Land Rovers all lined up.

LOL that was a pretty cool convoy we had there for a minute. I was actually thinking that one of you 2 might be on the board. Consider my 90 sighted... nice mirror shot

#003 NAS 90 (sweet shape)

Spotted #003 NAS90 outside 720 South Ocean Drive in Palm Beach about an hour ago.

One of the nicest NAS 90s I can remember seeing in a long time (with exception of those two time capsule ones Bobcat110 had squirreled away about 2 years ago)

Somebody can probably elaborate on the glossy fender flares/eyebrows, whether this is a POE truck or those are replacements. For that matter somebody can chime in on the year. I didn't look inside to see if it was an auto, I was already grifty enough walking around taking pictures.
It really says something about Defenders when somebody pulls over to take several photos of a 20 year old truck when you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting a Rolls or Bentley. In fact, there was a new California in the next driveway and I found myself just noting its presence, while staring at the Defender.

It's clear that the only "off road" this truck has seen is the manicured peastone or lawn blocks of a Palm Beach auto court.

That's so pathetic. I'm glad I didn't meet him.

My new favorite thing is I've had multiple people pull up next to me in defenders while I'm in mine and they have made zero eye contact or even look at my truck. Happened twice this week.

I try and avoid making eye contact with other dudes when driving ... your experience may vary

Sorry, I had to share that laugh with other TBL fans cause I know this board is full of them.

Technically, isn't it "JDM-Spec"?

Regardless, the truck was near perfect as far as I could tell.

That Series belongs to the owner. I've tried to buy it from him as well. Says he hasn't had it there "that long."
