Tony, I have seen that ECR truck around Arlington a few times. It has LED rear lights, and yes, a Tdi.

that is the ECR truck, it lives in either Annandale or Barcroft. Saw it last week again on the way to get parts from Pedro

And I will say that for a moment, I thought it was Jeffs truck, silly me

Anyone here? Or does anyone know who owns this 110?

Mike @ECR, this may look familiar?

Yup, one of our old 90 to 110 conversions. 1997 NAS 90SW to ECR 110 Wagon with a 4.6 automatic. Did that one in about 1999. Was owned locally in Maine for years then on Nantucket last I heard of it (as Nantucket shop could not make it run right).

Yes, the 94 Tdi 90 came back for a timing belt job and while it was here we converted it to round LEDs.

Indeed, spotted it late August in Nantucket. (poor quality cell phone pic)
Nice truck!

Next time I'm up there, I want to check out Teresa's 1997 AA Yellow 90. Her license plate is MOZMBQ for Mozambique.

Get ready to cry

Was just in Disney World and saw this Series "conversion" pulling a parade float.

Only Disney could do such a disasterous thing...only reinforces my hatred for the place! And yes, I have kids. And no, they will not be allowed to go there.

It gets better - the float was built on a Sankey trailer!!!

Yeah every time we go there I swear I'm never going back, but the wife drank the cool-aid when she was little and still hasn't shaken the disease.

Only if it had a white roof and you could prove via the picture it had the more stout 4.0. Oh wait I can't afford that anyone. Just a dream.

Saw that a few weeks ago. He was driving behind me. I was in a Cab, of course. The truck looked clean.

Saw a red ST with a painted Fiberglass top this past weekend on Abbot Kinney. Painted to mimic a SW with WHITE roof. Looked good.

Have you see the Ex-Mod ST over there? It's parked on Abbot a lot.
