Not exactly a sighting in person, but about a week ago I got an email ad from Eddie Bauer featuring a super cool green (and looks to be a repainted NAS) D110. Attached below is a screen capture from when I clicked the link.

As I first looked at it, I couldn;t figure out what looked wrong with it. Then, I realized that the image got flipped for the ad layout. (i.e. mirror image, or it's some sort of high-zoot reverse-opening door, opposite side plate mount, looks like RHD but not, etc.)

Belong to anyone here?

Two chicks, a surfboard and a 110- that sounds like an award winning combo!

anyone here? i've seen it out on the road a fair amount.
also, if you look closely at this picture, you may also see bigfoot running through the woods.

I'm gonna go drive around Kirkland today just so somebody spots mine!

yeah, yeah.... i get it.
i have a 5 minute commute time and don't spend enough time in seattle, hence kirkland sightings. (and no where close to enough time in the mtns)
from a regional standpoint......with the majority of these sightings taking place around DC, thought i'd promote the pacific northwest a bit.

oh, by the way.
black 90 parked out at carillon point (also kirkland) . used to be a blue 90 parked there, now a black one.

i promise to educate myself on the model so i can be more accurate in my descriptions.

Seattle area sightings

Saw that black series truck again yesterday over by Chinooks. Despite the rain I got a slightly better look at it- it's sitting on a galvy frame and has newer looking inward facing fold up seats and a shaggy black car alarm sitting on the passenger seat. Anyone from here?

Got two sightings today.
1st:
I saw a commercial being filmed for the evoque. This is the amazing thing. It was being filmed in a parking lot at the beach. They filled the parking lot with fake snow. Seems very cost effective.

2nd
Blue SW with a winch and a baby seat mounted to a jump seat.

I think I pulled up beside the blue SW with the baby seat in the jump seat. My kid in the back of the 110 was waving at the kid in the 90. Funny.

Question: On the willlow SW on the top of this page. Why are there stainless bolts on the back? was that where a cage was once attached? I don't feel like my 90 has bolts there...?

Bolts are for the SD rack that came on the truck.

How did you resist the temptation to drive him off the road so you can pick his brain and drool over his rig?

There is a Metallic Blue in Tuxedo, could be a chance it was that one ( called my friend, but the asshat is in a meeting )

Tom claims it was him but he drives a green truck. My poor mom and her blurry vision. She did still pull a sighting out so that is impressive.
