Not an LE, it was Coniston Green. I saw him driving around my office this morning too.

You're right it does. I didn't even look that closely at the lights. Hopefully I can catch up with him while he's here.

The side-facing wing lights (technical term?) don't appear to be too small for NAS, and look to be the Japanese 90 size if I'm not mistaken.

The lower Manhattan D-90 density is rising! ... I've seen a few ST's about ( mainly on weekends ) and a blue NY plated SW on the East side from time to time.

Two quick things: The front wing marker light is too small. Also the clear lights on the headlight surround. The truck looks stock, so the likelihood that someone changed those two things is remote.

Smile Green D90 in jersey stalking me?

First sighting was while it was in the parking lot of Home Goods off Asbury Circle looked real nice. Has green paint, black canvas top, Vermont plates, 95 or 97, had two recovery points on a stock looking front bumper. Second sighting was on 35 in Wall at that angled intersection by the gas station. Then (wait for it), after spending about 20, 30 minutes in Kmart I hop back in the my parents disco (driving my mother for the day). Turn myself around to back up out of the parking space and lo and behold i see said green 90 parked in front of Quiznos. So if you are stalking me please stop as I'm already with a red 90 and s3 station wagon.

Nice truck, not garage queen like some of the others i have seen in the area.

I hope you're not talking about my white '95 :D

Yea, there are some garage queens in the area - I see them in my town. And some that are modded a bit but I never see dirt on them. Selfishly it would be great to have another person to go on the trails with.

Don't know the green 90 w/ VT tags but I'm in that area every now and then. Funnily, I was driving down Route 35 towards the LR stealer last week and some guy in a Honda honked at the light and said he had a '71 Series IIa for sale. Thought it was cool to run into another Rover Head. I'll keep a look out for your trucks.

On a side note - the 90's been helping me get good parking spots. Pic is from Toys R Us last night :D

I have done that myself with the 90. Since i was driving my mother around I had to use the disco (bummer). Could have used the 90 or s3 yesterday cause of all the shitty parking lot plowing that was done. If you talking about the toysrus on 35 and wykoff thats just down the street from my folks place.

You'd be surprised - I saw some Discos that would have an easy parking spot but kept driving.

There is a nice sized snow pile at my son's school I was eyeing this morning - would love to do an up and over on it.

Yup that's the Toys R Us - I'm in that area stopping at Lowes, cutting thru to the Parkway etc quite a bit.
