I love the yellow SW look

If I were to paint mine a diffrent color I think that is the way I would go.

So Mike you just killing time surfing the internet or are you starting the search?

Yes, Dave, yes.... :D

I'm just looking around right now... Trying to figure out what the hell I will eventually buy. I'm also starting to slowly acquire pieces parts.

Cheers,

This could be factory because it is within the VIN range for POEs (at the very early part of it and supposedly no yellow POEs were made). I doubt that it is because the liftgate on the inside has a hole like a series and it lacks the upper seat belt mounts on the hardtop and the bolts holding the top panel onto the top sides on are all installed upside down.

Thanks for the heads up.. I'm very excited, now that I've had my artificial disc replacement, I can get back into having fun with Rovers!! Once the lawyers are done doin their thing, I'll be in the market for probably a 110 (but who the hell knows when that'll be. I'm prayin for this year or early next).

Ron, weren't the POEs made late 94? Just curious.... I think JimC started a thread that had all the odd ball 90s that were imported (can't find it this moment).
Cheers,
Jabber

Follow-up Post:

NM, it was you, Ron, that started the odd ball color thread:

Might want to call and find out if this is legit!

Don't like the look of the soft top snaps still there.

"Ron, weren't the POEs made late 94? "

Yes, they started at around #700 and this is #738, but most were later and in the range. Yeastie was the last POE and she was #1729 It says in the VIN registry which one was the first one. The window sticker will show it as an option if it had the POE top.

I remember talking to one of the guys I knew at LRNA in August of 1994 and he told me that they were down at the docks fitting hard tops to some of the Defender 90 soft tops. This was just before I started running their warranty program for the tickford tops.

I may have seen the truck in question rolling into downtown yesterday about 3pm on Park Ave. next to Coors-Canaveral. I haven't seen this one before. I didn't get to see much of it for long. 2-3 inches of lift, red steering damper, and it had some yellow tape on the rear window on the border of the plastic window on the passenger side, kind of a backwards "C".-the only distinguishing features that caught my eye in the few seconds I saw it. The driver looked to be a white guy, 30ish, short reddish blonde hair, sideburns, a little under 6', average to slight build I would guess. I wouldn't know a member of the Fray if you flogged me with him, but I thought the description might sound familiar if you're a follower.

Hey, Jabber, If you don't mind sharing...I'd love to hear the particulars of your disc replacement. I've been putting this off for a couple years now living on epidurals (had another one yesterday). I just can't quite bring myself to do it yet. I'd love to hear about your experience.

Rod

could've been. I saw it at JC Rover about a month ago. It had been there for about 4-6 weeks I heard and was awaiting diffs in a bucket from GBR with 4.10s. I know a few of their songs but I also wouldn't recognize the guy if I saw him!

this is what it looks like now.

Sure could have been the truck, Jeff.
In the interest of Rover notoriety, it sure could have been this guy
