I know that there was at least one Red POE truck - I saw it here in Atlanta at Hennesey Land Rover about ten years ago. I was told that there were two of them that were painted red. I never heard of any Arles Blue or White POE's though.

There are two Monza Red 97 D-90's SW's in Atlanta - both of them owned by Solaros members.

I have personally seen a black 110 several times in Greensboro, NC. All times have been while passing on the road so I have not seen the truck upclose for any specific details.

They might be - they are a real bright red - almost Ferrari red. Is Monza Red more of a maroon color?

The red POE I saw was a real bright red as well - sort of like the old Series truck Poppy Red but brighter. I'm having a senior moment and don't remember the names of the colors as well as I should.

Monza Red is fire engine red. Portofino is a darker red. I've got a '97 Monza ST and a '94 Portofino ST in the shop right now - in the shade it's hard to tell them apart - but in the sun it's obvious.

Java and Lazer are the two that I am after. When I am bored I google the VINs to see if they are for sale.

My ST is Monza and the SW is Porto. Parked next to each other in the sun, the Monza looks almost orange compared to the Porto - which looks more like a cherry shade.

How can there be a factory 1994 POE hard top when the Monza Red color wasn't introduced until the 1997 model????

IIRC, the red "POE" truck is in the bay area and was for sale a year or so ago. The truck I'm talking about was clearly not a POE, but rather a red 94 ST that had a hard top put on it. There was some custom work to the cage.

Are you guys talking about my old 90? I sold it to PCROVER about a year ago and it was a 94 st with a POE type hard top on it. There is a pic in the for sale section from back in 02.03.07. I am to lame to link the pic here.

Easy there buddy. I'm just passing on what I know. It was red and the guy said it was a POE.

I just found the user name. It's LenB 1997 ST with POE SW roof. Not a true POE.

I believe the black 110 was painted by the Dealer special order for Diane Keaton and the current owner is Jim Newman in San Diego... It was hacked by Jim with a 300TDI conversion and had some severe rust issues
