As long as it isn't raining, it will be at British By The Sea on June 6th. You could be one of the few people to actually witness it in the "wild".

Pic of my 90 with my brother-in-laws Series III. He needed a spot to store it and it ended up at my house for a bit. Wife wasn't too siked so on it went to MA with my dad. He's driven it around and likes it but says it's pretty tired. If I had the time I would love to give her a new frame and light resto on the running gear.

Here's my 1962siia88. Also have a 1969 siia 109 I'm building up on a 110 chassis, but that one is not picture worthy yet. Mines the first rig crossing the stream, the second belongs to my neighbor.

Wow!! Nice build up Jeff. The Oak colored canvas door tops will look nice on that paint. Got your message and will get a set out to you shortly.

Even though I like to use them on other sites, theres pretty much no chance of getting them turned on globally here. I will go into the cons over in this thread rather than take this one off track with my long winded answer LOL.

Not mine, but this resto took me over 3 years, and I'put so much heart into it, I feel like it's mine!

Here's a picture of mine, how I bought it, and how it looks now. It had been pretty much abandoned in NH for 20 years or so, and then I bought it, paying too much money for it (the benefit being it sort of had a title). The frame was complete junk, it had a seized motor and something locking up one of the wheels. I promptly dismantled it and realized I didn't have the money to play this game.

After many years, it now sits on a 200tdi D90 frame (with 200tdi motor and trans), and is a lot closer to being driven. Maybe this summer? One can only hope. I'm sticking with the S3 front end, So I'm going to have to fab up some more supports to make the rad/intercooler and front end sit somewhat correctly.

The only thing I can say about mine is: 1) I also overpaid of for it, 2) I promptly put as much money into it as I had paid for it (or more), 3) it still looks like - and does - need work. But it starts every time, even when I've left it for 3-4 months at a time (since it's at my place in NY).

Would love to get a tdi in it...I hate getting 10-12mpg in it (vs. 21-24 in my 110 tdi). Some day...if anyone has an extra tdi they want to part with let me know : ).

PS - Trevor (Roverlab)...what's the color code you used to shoot that Series you posted? That thing really is a good looking rig. Once I get around to it, a respray may be in order down the road for mine - though part of me does like the character marks on my Series.

Pliny (The Elder) - First pic in its current form. The second is when I got it two years ago. I still have the p/u cab and am contemplating returning to that setup since I got the 90 SW.

Started out with a straight SIII 109, that had a left wheel seal leak, failing steering relay and a slight cylinder head leak, but other than that it was pretty well sorted. Failing to know any better I took to disassemble the thing for a detailed frame off and eventually after 4 years ended up with my interpretation of an original 109 stationwagon with a bit of added kit.
