Man my seats are frozen solid! If I took my top off I would freeze before I got out of the Driveway. But I think I saw:

5 Discos

2 Range Rovers

1 G-Wagon

Zero Defenders!

Whats funny, in your avatar pic you have the top on but it is currently off, and in my pic the top is off but it is currently on. So I'll tell everyone I saw a nice black 97 D-90 in Irvine CA if you tell everyone that you saw a slightly dirty 94 D-90 in Manchester NH.

Recently I have seen four other Defenders in Chapel Hill, NC:

'97 Green SW: it parks in my parking lot at school

Black ST: very very built, I saw it while I was walking back from class on Cameron Street (Anyone here??)

White SW: I saw it driving on Airport Road and attempted to follow it for a few blocks before I lost it (Anyone here)

'94 White ST: Belongs to Prof in the Medical School, I have met him at Rover Club house, and met his son at a Frat House

I have also noticed quite a large number of H2s and discos. I also see tons of RR classics driving all over the place.


.....Almost forgot about the three series LRs I have seen parked on campus since the start of the year....

I hardly ever see a 90 here in Sarasota. There is a yellow soft top but the guy never waves. And then I see Matt White's 90 and his dad, Marshall's, 110 only when we wheel or they are in the shop getting more mods!
But there are tons of H2s, new RR's, etc. etc.

Philip,
That is exactly who it was. It had pretty big tires and definatly had some kind of aftermarket exhaust. Who is it, and where do they live?

I drove by a dealership, twice. Does that count?
But alas I'm hundreds of miles from my truck and driving a rental Chevy Impala.

Today

Today I walked in the garage, and there she was, big ,red and- beautiful. I dont drive her much in winter, due to the effects of magnesium chloride on her. Cant wait till the snow melts. Snow bound in Vail Colo.

He used to be on the site regurly but sold his truck and got a pretty sweet Porsche. I think his name was Mark Benton. Its a pretty nice truck i think its locked. Well this is the case if its the truck I think it is.

I did see a yellow ST with fiber roof on Saturday in Harvard Square. First D90 in about three months I've seen on the road.

A lot of H2 drivers have been waving at me in traffic lately. I couldn't tell if they thought my truck was a hummer, or if they were having a seisure.

I pretty much see a D-90 per day out here. Some of them the same, as we seem to have the same commutes.

Funny thing, I started out offering a little wave to each as I drove by, and NONE of them ever returned the courtesy. They looked at me like I was an alien. I'm in another D-90...shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Now, if you're ever in Irvine, CA, and you see a White '97 SW...I won't be waving back. Don't bother!

I seam to almost be tripping over them where I live. there are four of them within a five block radius around my girlfriends apartment. not to mention the three I drive by to get there. sad part is that most of them look like there grocery getters.

If your in the Santa Monica / Malibu area, and you see a Green '94 SW... no worries, I'll wave back.
