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.
313???
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.

I think every car in Georgetown is rust free but has a badly dinged door or bumper.

Orange 90 with black top, not sure either lhd or rhd at Bayridge Ave and 2nd ave, Green 90 with Badger top at 86th st and 3rd ave. Two G4 disco's parked at Century 21 parking at 86 st and row 110 rhd brown with white top at Bayridge pkwy and 6th ave. Lots of Evoque's in different color probably doing last Christmas shopping. Happy Holidays!
