Landscape design for my neighborhood

I was using google sketchup as a means to design our new landscaping for our circle in the neighborhood...and of course, I HAD to use a d90 for demonstrating the scale...

Chuck, I just used Sketchup to design our deck. Where did you get the D-90?

Pretty good collection. I had to pull the model into my environment directly from sketchup. I had to play with it a bit, but it works. It's actually pretty neat - but not accurate. If you look at the bottom of the 90, it has leaf-spring suspension. Also, the engine seems to be the 2.25 liter...hmmm, perhaps a defender/series hybrid?

When I worked at the dealer we used to have one sitting on the rocks to bring in customers.

Did not matter much if it sold or not, funny thing was the manager was not out to make huge money off it so it normally sold within a month (defeating its main purpose as an advertisement).

Hmmm... I wonder how much they would pay for one to sit on the rocks out front. A few days here, a holiday weekend there.. LOL!
