My point was it isn't all original. I have zero issue with nas lights. Even euro trucks use them for reverse and fog.

Wonder why it has those lights. Maybe new rear from an accident?

As for spacers, the tires look huge. They probably were rubbing on full lock and this was the easy fix

That's the first thing I noticed (tires) but they are 265/75, so idk
The stance does look wider but the tires don't stick out beyond the spats rather they are flush with the edge. Does the stock track sit inside the spats a bit?

I don't understand that and the old school lights, but I agree they (lights) look out of place. Good candidate for LED plinths/lights.
It could be because the truck actually made its way to France for a few years (maybe they are required to run certain Euro lights?) I have no idea, but when I was underneath there was no evidence of any repairs or rust. Stock everything, never been waxoyled.

Regardless of nitpicking, it's an extremely nice example that I'd be happy to call my own I a heartbeat! I love a 90 in Arles!

Weird the spacers made the tires look big.

In any case the guy should ditch them

Guessing that is glare, you can see through the rear door window and out the other side window. Or that is reflection, hard to say.

Sharp 1994 ST today in Vancouver. Granville and 70th around 3:30 pm. Looked fresh from the detailer. Anyone here? Couldn't catch the plaque so it could have been CDN or NAS, with money on the former. A bizarre breather and some interesting 5-bar plate patterns, but looked great altogether with the mud flaps and ARB.

I ran across that unit the other day online and used it in a want ad on Instagram for a hardtop. His top looks mint, probably never taken off.

nice form in the first picture!
I bet if there were a Palestinian minor league, he could throw 90 plus into the 8th inning.
Instead he's hurling Molotov cocktails and has the life expectancy of a Mayfly.




Anyway, nice action shot of the D's!
