I asked a few times and got a few different answers about the CT Disco; one was that it was acquired by a private collector recently (wasn't there a CT in NYC last year for sale?) and they were using it as a prop, and the other was that all of the trucks there were LRNA/LR Manufacturers trucks. The CT was the only truck with plates on it, but they weren't NY or a state at all if I recall.

It would be great if they had parking for us.

I told them we'd be coming, but it wasn't like they were jumping to accommodate us.

I think we just find our own parking and enjoy the moment. I will be there early like 9am and will save some spots for us. Anyway, enjoy this LR event.

I need to sleep in a little so I'll be there at 11. There's free food across the street, too. It was dead when we showed up at 9:15 but quickly got crowded at the event.

Yeah, it's the 1995 CT - they said the driver (I think Ken something) of the CT truck was there - I think I spoke with him for a bit. Will have to confirm that today.

The wagon 90 was 001, as was the 110.

It does look like the CT Disco from New York that was for sale last summer. I almost bought that but was not to keen on the loop holes with registering it. And I wasn't going to buy it as a drive way accessory. The seller let me test drive it around the Bronx, pretty weird looks from other drivers at the HH Pkwy. He owns a really nice ROW 110 as well. I he was looking to get $25K for the CT truck and I was haggling him down to $19k

We were more of an attraction it seemed than the actual event.

That RRC was actually the last one off of the assembly line apparently. Also, that 1997 D90 had a surprising amount of rust!! I heard from someone it actually only had like 1,300 miles on it.

half way through the video you can see the taxi cab parked outside that they buried under the mound of dirt. It's expected to drive away under its own power tomorrow when they unearth it. haha. They should have buried a Freelander instead!!

The RRC looks great! I wonder if they will start to appreciate soon.
