How did you come across the D-90 Source?

I was checking out the Members List and noticed there has been a steady flow of members since Sept 2003.

How did you guys find the d-90 source?


When I finally decided to seriously look for a Defender, I stumbled on to the web site during a search. I remember how over-whelming the site was initially, I spent most of my time in the FAQ, custom mods and the misc pics section. It wasn't until I bought a Defender that I actually joined the forum.

I initially didn't know what the heck I wanted to search for, I would just read post after posts until I fell asleep...then read some more.

This site has been a wealth of info with a great community!

Well, Sept 03 was when the new forum software was set up, so I think everyone pretty had to create new accounts then. You can still search the old discuss bb which has lots of great info. I just found the site with a web search, it actually took me a while to realize there were forums, like you I was reading all the other stuff.

A buddy of mine from high school had a D90 and was on here for a while, and he sent me the link to the SVX Super D90 pictures (under the Misc. Pictures link up top). I had wanted a D90 since I first saw one when I was 9, and once it became a legitimate possibility I registered on the forum and started buggin people instead of using the search button.

I'm friends with Alan and Mimi Dobbs who own The D90 List (The Yahoo Group) and have been a member there I guess since it started ('97 I guess)...and Chuque was on there. I remember when the D90 Source was the basic website that is somewhat still there...before this part started.

I've always kept up...even when I didn't have a Defender.

Saw a sticker on the back of what I think was Scott's truck in Derry. Have been hooked ever since!

Just after I bought my 110 my buddy asked me to sell his 110 for him. Well, I listed it on Ebay and the PO contacted me just to BS. Turns out he had a garage full of D stuff, some from the 110 and some from his 90 he had before that. We spent the better part of a day BSin' around and he mentioned it to me. He couldn't believe I didn't know about it, so I had to check it out!

Once I did I saw all the good info and have checked it pretty consistently since.

I was driving down the Turnpike on my first visit to MAR. Pulled in a service area and a Blue D90 followed me in, turned out to be Mike Hippert and he lives about 20mls from me. Been friends ever since and a member of D90.com

I first found the site off a link on DWeb I think when I first started looking into buying our first Rover. A little while later when looking at modifying the 99 D2, reconnected with the site and decided on buying a D90. Shortly after, I took over the site from Q.

I started following Q's home page back in the mid to late '90's when he first got his Red '95 soft top and was documenting his mods and trips online. I was just dreamin' of a 90 back then. I didn't actually get my first D-90 until the summer of '99. Wow, that's been like 10 years, or more?!?! Man, I'm gettin' old!!

I stumbled onto the site while doing research for my d90 build years ago... It has been an addiction even since...

Man, I just noticed that I have not seen Hippert on this board in ages.. How is he doing other then the 90?
