Mine is under camo netting to hide from satellite and recon. Don't want the zombies and space aliens to find it. Lmao.

You can see my 101 broken down at the bottom of the drive way....fuel pump went.

Some defender with a white roof I had for sale...I cant remember which one

and the green one next to the house is my 109 Series ambulance. This is all from 3 years ago.

Checked google maps and there she is. I recall that day pretty well. The car parked in front of it belongs to the parents of our kid's babysitter (Scion hatchback if I remember correctly). Normally she dove a Land Rover Freelander but it had a engine troubles. Go figure

Also, here is a closeup shot of the Blue Turtle pre roll cage wearing it's softop in the exact location of the google map shot.

Street view. Oddly when you go a round the corner only the Disco is outside.
