spotted a hard top 90 in Asbury Park NJ

I saw it this evening while walking home from work. Blue and super clean with a Rutgers sticker. Recent purchase; the temp tag was still in the back window.

I'm the 97 softtop in Ocean Grove. I'll keep an eye out for the new guy.

Aha! I'm the guy that was staring at your truck last week. I see your 97 almost every day.

Saw it again...

...and now I have proof:

Sorry for the clandestine quality of the picture. It still as a temp-tag in the rear window. Having seen it twice within the same couple of blocks, I think it's a local car for sure.

Mystery Rover

That looks like the one that had a for sale sign on it down on 71 south in Sea Girt. He wanted about 30k.
That wouldn't explain the dealer temp tags unless maybe the old owner put it on a consignment lot like
Brian's on 34 in Manasquan. I haven't seen it there in a few months. Wasn't there another blue one that used to park on Cookman by Steinbach's a few years ago?

I don't remember another 90 on Cookman. Yours is the only local one I see on a regular basis. Though I saw a Yellow one parked in a back yard in Wanamassa a couple of weeks ago. It didn't look like it was getting much use.

That thing has been for sale since before I bought my white '95 a couple of years ago.

I saw yet another blue SW as I was leaving town today. It had a short roof rack, turning onto Asbury Avenue.

A red ST this weekend...

I saw an NAS ST (Red) with a hitch mounted bike rack running around AP this weekend. It was parked around Cookman before passing my RRC on 8th Ave later in the day. Anyone here?

Another AP Rover

How about the white soft top with a fiberglass hard top that was parked by Press Plaza on Sunday?
Plus there is a D90 with NY plates that parks in a driveway Lareine or Brinley in Bradley Beach.

I was out of town all day Sunday, so I missed the white one. There is a nice Green SW over in Allenhurst too.

I think I spotted your new RRC on the way to get my son and nephew from surfing. I usually head south thru Sea Bright but was riding with John and Miller down at Allaire and passed thru AP. Must have been yours as it had temp tags and a hitch bike rack. Looked good!

That's the one! I've already got my eyes on a spring-set to replace the wonky old air-shocks. I'm very happy with this truck, despite its little "issues"
