I do love the IH Scout II. As I was looking for a D-90 I had thought more than once about the Scout instead.

Yeah, a co-worker of mine a few years ago mentioned that I should find a IH Scout instead of a 90. Glad I found the 90.

Another question, do any of you get attitudes from dudes in 10" lifted pickup trucks with 50" swampers? I've had a few pass me and act like they are racing me up the street and scream their exhaust. kinda funny.

I get thumbs up from the big pickups, jeeps and Yotas. You just need more mud on your truck, and take the doors off, I think that makes you look more hillbilly.

I offered on a diesel Scout before I found a Defender. Since I grew up with the "hillbilly chariots" I often get a thumbs up because I'm the guy they see out there with them (Plus, they're all my friends from high school).

Keith - I'm sure I've stared at your truck many a time in Richmond. I actually found mine down there on Grove Avenue before it hit the paper. If someone in a black Jetta can't seem to wave fast enough it's me. I'm there all the time 'cause my gf's parents live there.

My TVR under the hood is a nice little surprise for these boys.

Search posts for TVR. For many years TVR used the rover (buick) block to build it's v8s. I was lucky enough to get one that was destined for a Griffith, vintage 1999. With proper air intake and exhaust (neither of which I have), the Griffith 5.0 yields 340hp and 360ftlbs. Fun, but dangerous.

Holy Crap

How many metal pieces have you sheared under that thing?

When the time comes, since I'll be running an EFI system that can handle it, I'm thinking of dropping a line to that guy who does nothing buy racing engines based on the 215 Buick and Rover V8.

Vroom Vroom.

So far so good. (Knock on wood.) I'm very easy into and out of gears, apply trottle in a quick gradient rather than stomping on it (albiet only like a one second gradient but enough I hope to keep from breaking teeth), and have only chirped it accidentally so far. Who needs a broken tranny for the sake of burnt rubber? Wish me continued luck, all!!!

To bring this thread back to the I'm a rover, you're a rover, wouldn't ya like to rover too it started on... My only new years res is going to be to wave at all LRs on the road. If they wave back or not, I'll bit my tongue 'cause I am doing it for me. D-90s and 110 in my woods, expected. Sighted 3 SIII, never a glance, RR and Discos, we have to many to count.

And RoverChic - sounds like the guys like you too much. Funny thing is, NO ONE looks at me in the D-90 unless my daughter is in the front seat (5yrs old blond smiles a lot). BUT whenever my wife is out in the green machine, she comes home in the evening, big smile and every time 3 - 4 hoots, waves, thumbs up. Ladies and Rovers, go figure. All I can say to it, "God bless the Queen."

landroversforsale.com couldn't sell the #300 for that price. I wonder if Copley can? It has about 800-900 more miles on it now. I bet noone ever buys that thing for personal use. They'll just keep buying and selling it over and over.
