La Jolla sighting

I see this Black '95 ST (Badge 2840) on the left parked frequently in the South La Jolla/North Bird Rock area near the beach. My Black '95 ST (Badge 3018) is parked on the right. Does that make 'em twins? If the white car wasn't in the middle it would be a money shot. Separated at birth!

Downtown Denver sighting

Just moved to downtown Denver 3 weeks ago and saw this truck off 17th street when I was first pulling into town.

Whitefish Montana Defender 110

I was up in Whitefish Montana vacationing last week and came across this nice 110 with Texas plates. Badge 213/500. Now that's a road trip! Spotted a nice gal (or long haired hippy/snow boarder) from a distance driving it around the square later the next day.

Just saw a red ST, built up, with jerrycans on the back. You were heading south on 115 by Fort Carson here in Colorado Springs. Anyone here?

Barry, my truck was a Santa Monica resident for many years before I bought it. Previous owner kept it in a garage when not in use till he moved then had to park it on the street for about a year. I'm surprised no one has sighted mine on here.

Barry,

I was in Manhattan Beach for the sixth man on Saturday and I spotted a super clean Arles 90 with a galvy rear crossmember, snorkel and tdi sticker on it. Do you know this truck?

Ok, so I saw this yellow 90 in Venice on Tuesday on Abbot Kinney. I know the owner is on this board but can't remember who it is. There is usually a yellow DII in that same parking spot, also with TX plates.

That's the one with the huge locker in the back that the bench sits on, right?

Leave it to you to know the rooster fish by looking at a pic of the back door.

Yes, I can't remember that thread it was in but I remember you asking about that.

I saw that same truck in Newport, RI not too long ago...I was driving my Defender, it was hard to wave and barf at the same time.

Steve-
Are you up in Newport at NWC?
I expect to be headed up there next summer myself, and will probably bring both Ds along.
I was stationed there back in 1999, and dug it.
