Not my truck & not my photo. I wish I could take that good of a photo. I came across this on flickr. I think it is amazing. I imagine some of you have that same series hiding in your woods too!

My "new" 95 RRC

Picked this up on Saturday from a good friend. It's supercharged with 2" suspension & 2" body lift, ARB w/winch.
Yesterday I got the new tires (255/85/16 BFG MT's) and today the pimp-daddy tint (I'm very sensitive to the sunlight being an immortal and all). Colorado vehicle so it's has almost zero rust and much of the prone areas have been treated with POR.
It needs a good wash & wax and I have lots of upgrades planned. Stay tuned...

Nice new truck Art! Has your daughter forgiven you yet and decided she's OK with the green?

That looks like a sweet RRC, glad you were able to score that - and I am glad I was able to snag your old one. Happy happy, joy joy.

Man, I'm feeling the love for RRC!
I'm still watching that Bolivia episode with the RRC, FJ40 and Sammi watching the other guys suffer on the rough roads and the guy in the classic is "styling" down the road with his iPod!

After over a year of searching, I've found a nice original V8 110. Picking it up next Monday morning after a failed attempt the past weekend when all the trains sold out up to Scotland due to the airspace closures. Can't wait.

Maya actually asked to ride in it yesterday - so I think she's coming around, all the ice cream probably helped a bit too. I'm sure she'll love the fun we're going to have on the trails this summer, I can't wait!

You might have to wait a while Aaron. I love the '95 RRC - IMO it's one of the best Rovers ever produced, I only sold my other one so I could buy this.

Not mine but I finally got to drive a newer (2007) Defender 110 this past week at SCARR. Even with my back jacked up, and only got to drive it a few hundred yards, it was nice. Man that baby was smoooottthhh.

So I fell asleep browsing through this post last night. I don't even remember what I was searching for or how I found it. I think its time for some updates though... Lets see em.

CVC / Tawayama I'm a little behind here but what's the story on this series I. The links don't work but the truck looks awesome!
