I just saw a fellow Defender 90 afficianado (that's wine and cheese speak for D-90 freak) in south town Lake Tahoe on Wednesay as I was heading back to Napa. We passed on Highway 50 by the "Port of Subs" near the road to the Keys. He was heading towards stateline in a white D-90. I think I saw his rig on-line before. Very nice. We saw each other a mile a way and waved accordingly with mutual admiration as we all do. I love that. Defenders seem to fit in so well in Tahoe and yet they stand out so much as to turn heads at every corner. Then again, it could be the glass packs the previous owner installed. "Sorry for the mild noise pollution, but you looked and it does sound nice." We were up skiing in Heavenly and it it was oh so...heavenly! Yeah, I know you saw that coming a mile a way too.

I know of a green SW in Incline Village. My black ST is in Incline a few times a year when I'm at my family's place. Supposedly there is also a yellow ST owned by one of the doctors at the local emergency care place, but I haven't seen it myself.

I happened to have followed that particular yellow D-90 ST by chance as we drove down from Boulder Lodge after skiing. It was a very nice and very stock 1997 and the guy seemed to fit the profile of a doctor. We waved and continued on. Suprisingly, I haven't noticed any other D-90's in Tahoe and yet you would think they would be everywhere.

yea we spoke to a few realeastate agents, apperently the cali side of tahoe is the "cheap" side... as smart rich people want to live on the NV side and not pay personal state income taxes!
