Smile My new '97 D90 with 9300 Miles!

I just got my new '97 British Racing Green D90 Soft Top yesterday all the way from California!!

It is easily the best I've seen so far. It is my second one and it is in better shape compared to the first one I purchased back in 1998 only 1 year old.

California Car so no rust, kept in a climate controlled garage, Top hardly even used and best of all it only has 9300 miles with no mods at all!!!!

Here are some pics from the delivery:

Steve, welcome!
Check out the Rausch Creek thread in the "hitting the trails" section. A bunch of guys are meeting there for some trail riding. Good folks. (except for that Hippert fellow...don't follow him!) It's a good intro to folks in the area. Quite a few MD/VA guys have trucks and you can always turn to them for ideas on how to pimp your ride and trail tips.

Damn... 9300 miles! That's a time capsule!

Congrats! If I may ask, what'd you pay for it?

I had most of the seals replaced already to be sure

Front & Rear Dif, Oil Pan, Trans Gasket, etc. It was driven fairly often just not very far.

I actually got a good deal, much cheaper compared to East coast shops and the Boston Dealer.

Yea, I was thinking I can't even imagine what a 97 pristine D90 with only 9300 mi would be.
