Old shot I stumbled across today. I thought it was cool enough to post.

That kind of looks like the scene when I first went to visit ECR. I was in my NAS 110 with my wife when we pulled in. She looked at me and said "you told me these things were rare?!"

Speaking of 110s, pulled a total Stalker-azzi on this guy today on 495 around Alexandria VA. Pulled up alongside him, honked & waved, took several pictures, then realized he was getting off the exit so I did as well (even though I wasn't heading that way).

Turns out the guy's name is John Cross, it's NAS 313/500, bought it fairly cheap from TX a few years ago and was just driving it as-is but is planning to send to ECR down the road for a refurb.

Yes, again for the record I realize I am a stalker.

Don't worry, I stalk his rig and two other 110s regularly. He's a real nice guy, loves to talk Rovers

Also, saw a nice con green 90 at 123 and GW parkway, which is where I have the majority of random sightings

Type-o?

We redid 313 a few years ago and it lives in MT with a loving owner.

I saw this watching Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer with my kids 2 weeks ago, and almost fell out of my chair. After many years of seeing this, I didn't realize it was a Series rover.

Sent to RN. If they don't send me a mug for that then the contest is rigged.

yeah, it looked like one of those trucks you see at Nene - all white with skinny tires. It was pissing rain and I was trying to catch up with it so hard to get a good luck.

238/85/R16's or 7.50x16 most likely. They are a great snow tire for this area.

Well...I didn't get out of the car to verify the badge, just chatted with the owner in the parking lot. When I asked him what number he did stumble for one second before saying 313 so maybe he got confused about what actual number? I probably take it for granted that not as everyone is as obsessive as I/we are when it comes to this stuff so I should have double-checked his claim .

Steve/Bill...you guys know what number his truck is since you've seen it before?

It's either 303 or 308.. I have a nice pic somewhere with the number.

Here's the lame pic. Saw it at Roverland in 2008 first.

Saw an Arles SW on MacArthur Blvd. in NW DC, not far from Georgetown, today. Looked to have a clean rear crossmember but a badly dinged driver door. Had a wreath on the grill.
