Was surprised to see a white D90 SW with rack and 4 Ralley lights passing by the equestrian center we were at today in Wesley Chapel just East of Weddington (S. Charlotte). Didn't know there were any other D's down here.

White 94 st/ht yesterday morning on Madaket Road. Pulled over for speeding after leaving the dump. Felt bad for him as he is a board member and I saw the speed trap a few minutes earlier. I would have gone over and warned him while at the dump, but figured he saw it too.....sorry.

I saw a few rovers over the weekend. I saw a Yellow ST in Manassas, VA on Blooms Quarry road. Then passed a White HT on either 66 or 495.

Also saw a Camel Trophy disco in Manassas parked in a parking lot with a for sale sign. Could be a clone, but i just saw it in passing.

I'm *guessing* the yellow ST was either Jeff Huff or Russell Green.

Oh wait, nevermind...they were both at Rovers on the Rocks this weekend. Couldn't have been them...

And that disco has been for sale for (literally) years. If I remember correctly it was built by pangeae a while back.

There’s two over here on this side of Charlotte,,,,,The one your describing I’ve seen a couple times along Stallings road and once at the bank on the corner of McKee and Matthews Weddington. There’s another one that resides just on the outskirts of downtown Matthews that I’ve yet to see,,,,, a fellow named Jason sold off his SIII and as to upgrade to a D-90, if you want to call it such. In addition there is a 110 diesel sequestered off of Potters Rd….that I visited on some time back…. Oh and though not so much relevant there’s a SIIa in the midst of a full on restro that may be out and about in Weddington before too long if it’s not already done…

Stupid question, but are those fiberglass hardtops available for purchase either aftermarket or old stock? Was just wondering if they're out there for ST's....

Would've been worth the risk...after all, the firearms restrictions in CA would have made it unlikely you'd be shot/killed/eaten.

It was in santa monica. Worst that could have happened is the owner ran out and beat me with a reusable whole foods bag.

It is a clone. I talked to the guy a few months ago about buying it. iirc he used it as an overland vehicle so its been on several continents, and it was built pretty nicely, but age and use has taken its toll.
