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.

story with the 110 nas at rover special vehicles is it was a rhode island beach truck with the requisite rust. Elderly gentleman commissions a frame swap and some other work and then dies.. they get the truck to settle the bill. Don't understand why they don't fix it up.

I saw that truck when I was in RI. It appeared to be staged and left as a billboard of sorts. Does make you wonder why they don't fix it up, but I can tell you it was a total rust bucket.

Saw a 94 st on fairview I think it was 1148. They need to clean the front diff guard out. Those badger tops really look well made.

Saw an unbelievable white '97 ST in McLean that appeared to have a Wolf Fab ladder/basket.. Jonathan, does that make any sense? I'd take a pic, but this location would end up being way too stalkerish.
