A bit late but I saw a white 110 (not NAS) heading south on Route 89 near White River Junction in Vermont last Sunday (Aug 14th). I had just gotten on 89 North from 91. I was thinking it was a Rovers North rig as it looked like something from their Defender Sales ads.

Come to think of it I should stop by and ask them or at least make a stop especially since I've been on that side of the Notch twice so far.

I'd put money on the fact that it was Taylor Congleton driving.

Saw this guy again yesterday while walking my dog Murphy near our apt in the West Village. He had the ST on, and the front windshield folded down. He's a young dude and had shaggy hair and iPod earphones in. I was going to wave him down, but he was silent mouth talking to some dude about 30 feet away and gave him the "call me" sign with his pinky and thumb. Anyone here?

Saw a white 110 with fishing pole holders on the front bumper stopping at a light on Rt 35 south and sunrise(?) ave. Honked to get my attention, which he did and he waved as I was making a left turn onto Rt 35 north, I was driving the battlewagon.

Not sure on the plates, I was heading in the other way and the barrier prevented me from seeing them.

Wife is getting good at taking good Defender pics. If that guy (Utah) is on the board he was probably wondering why somebody in a Van was taking pictures and waving at them....

I've never met Taylor but heard he does a lot of Defender work. Maybe he had to take a truck down south for extended test drive or delivery?

Just saw an ECR NAS 110 leaving my work parking lot. Had HUGE for sale signs in both back windows with something like "Full Body Off Restoration...call 310-XXX-XXXX for details." All white with a galv, late model rear crossmember and white ECR ROX sliders.

Pretty sure it was this one:

Couple of days ago I passed a Green 95-97 90 with white roof, I was driving the disco. I waved, got a quick look in the rear mirror and saw that he had euro/uk(?) yellow tag on the rear of the truck. This happened on Rt35 by that hippie supermarket and south of the library.

That same day, later I was in the parking lot of the shoprite on 36. When I was pulling out of my space I could hear this kid with his mother saying "what a cool jeep" w/big smile and what not. So when I straighten out I told the kid w/a smile that it is Cool and that its a Land Rover and not a jeep. The moms had a good laugh and the red head one started telling me that her husband owned a 97 D90.

Im thinking to myself then how does the kid mistake the 90 for a jeep? Had a short conversation w/the mom and and what have you and then had to get going.

It happens. It's like people say Kleenex when they mean a tissue.

My own daughter sometimes says Jeep after hearing her friends call it that. I really don't care when people call it a Jeep, and always just smile and say thanks. I got a classic "I love your jeep man, go WWII yoooo" from some random dude at a 4 way stop last week when in the series. Cracked me up.

Got over the jeep thing long time ago. I just smile and have a good laugh.
