I saw a blue D90 at the Duxbury beach parking lot around 6:30ish. Also, spotted a green 109 with the plates "Agnes" at the second cross over.

Both known.
The Arles one likely belongs to "Rufus" here on DefenderSource and ironically, "Agnes" belongs to a really nice dude who happens to work for Department of Homeland Security (of all agencies!) don't hold that against Jim, he's a super guy!

Agnes was a former Dormobile and is fitted with a factory 6-cyl. It's a really nice rig

It was nice to see some other folks around. Most of my sightings are parked trucks at Cityside or on River St. in Norwell.

Saw this at Farmstead at Mission Ranch restaurant in Napa valley, California. Seems they have a defender for a company car. Has some rust and needs some love, but definitely a beautiful sight! Note: it looks like an NAS but the doors seem to be from a series 3 or early 110/90.

What's different about the doors? Looks stock '94 NAS to me. The snaps were for the full length cockpit cover tonneau.

Those are stock doors. I remember seeing pics of that truck when it had a tickford.

Just saw a very clean 90 near Washington and Jane streets. It got pulled over about 30 seconds later. Most unique sighting of the year?? Click image for larger version

Saw this late 90s Tdi 110 CSW in Chelsea, Quebec, parked up at one of the local garages. LHD too. Looks like a near twin to mine except for the colour and chequerplating. Quebec tags. Anyone here?

Saw a 110 County (white with beige) apparently broken down on I-66 eastbound IVO exit 71 in Northern VA last Friday; a D2 appeared to be helping it...I'd have stopped to help/take photos but i was on a motorcycle headed the other direction ...sorry for such a mediocre first sighting.
