Just saw a 110 gray metallic with a roof rack and some cargo on the top front driving west on 134 around the Burbank area. I was driving in the opposite direction and didn't get a really good look at it but it looked fairly clean. Anyone seen this before?

Was it this one but with a Hannibal style rack on it?

If so, that's the Katika Africa truck.

D90 Sightings in Long Beach NY

I dont know where you NY's are finding these D'90's. I surf every other day in LB and take my D90 with no roof everyday and have yet to see any other trucks in my neck of the woods. I feel like Im the only one. Even on my drive east into Roslyn I never see any. Where are you all.

That reminds me. I saw a white ST with the newer style NY license plates this morning, with I think just a surrey on. I think it had round rear lights, but I was so tired my eyes wouldn't focus. It was heading uptown on 6th ave at 8th St around 8:45AM or so.

Yep. Used to live in TriBeCa, but saw mostly ones from the 80's in that area. There's a '95 for sale on CL in TBC right now.

I used to surf in Long Beach all the time, sometimes I'd drive the defender down there. I very rarely go down there now as it is an hour and a half drive for me (sometimes much longer with long island traffic), defender is horrible on gas, whitestone bridge is $6 each way, maybe more, gotta pay $12 to get on the beach, throw in food etc & I am looking at a $75 dollar day with most likely mediocre waves. I used to love surfing down there, but it just got too expensive.

Rover Special Vehicles - Jamestown RI

There are a bunch of pictures toward the end of the photos from Rover Special Vehicles.

It was sort of a rainy day when I went...but still good to walk around and gawk.

Haha. That 110 is STILL rotting outside there. Doesn't seem like it's moved in 5-6 years.

Nice work...that gray 90 and the black 90 are sweet looking. Any idea what they're asking?

@ Jason - I wish someone had been there to talk to, they had a 5 door 110 that I really liked.

@ Steve it has OME shocks and springs on it

Yeah, same question and what kinda lift height on those OME?

Guessing 255 and 1-inch lift.
