I am sad.

Since it was a beautiful day today, I got the D90 out of the garage. (I don't drive it much or at all during the winter.) I have to get a new inspection since I didn't get it done in December when it was due. On the back of Vermont inspection sticker they write the mileage at the time of inspection. I did some quick math, and I am very sad to say that I have only driven my 90 800miles in the past year and a half..... WOW, I need to get out there and drive more!!!

I got your JEEP thing, now it hurts when I pee!!

Tim, I don't know how far away from us you are, but a group of guys have started a club in southern New Hampshire. www.snhlr.org/forums We've been trying to do meets once a month.

I'm with you in my '92 Classic. I've averaged out 1,000 miles per year over the last three years. So far I've put more miles on this Defender since I bought it 6 months ago than I have on the Classic. I got from 12,000 to 47,000 on the LE rather quickly though.

I don't mind the Classic or the 90 being "occasional use" vehicles at all. I don't miss commuting 60 miles a day in the LE one bit.

How can you guys do that? When I had my D90, I used every excuse and did everything I could to drive the car as much as I could.
because six cylinders will take us farther than any president

Man, I hope you start it occassionally. I got my D with that same mileage used and all the seals needed replacing. Very costly mistake...
