Spotted #47

Spotted #47 red NAS D90 soft top today....in Santa Barbara Costa Rica. Pretty tired truck, worse shape than most series trucks I see here.

Evidently been down here for about 8 years. No freakin' idea why some gringo would have nationalize it here, like shipping coal to New Castle, and the import taxes must have been epic.

Pura Vida

No pictures? I'd love to see what the truck that came off the line right before mine looks like!

That said, it probably looks like a 90.

I do not believe NAS badge numbers have anything to do with assembly line order.

Early 94s were in order.
