Old member - new location

Greetings from the UK!

Hi everyone it's Art Vigil, longtime member from the beginning days of the D90 source and former resident of Denver, CO.
I haven't been very active on the Source for a couple years, and in that time I relocated my family to England. I do lurk occasionally and remember the old days when I used to live and breathe this forum. Hope some of you old guys are still around.

The Rover scene for a Landynut is exciting here, as you might imagine, although I still haven't found the right one. Fortunately they're a bit easier to get a hold of.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello and invite anyone heading my way to contact me any time if I can every help with anything on this side of the pond, or if you just want to say hello and meet up for a beer.

Kind Regards,
Art

Art,

I am about 1.5 hours from you, I just moved to Dorset with the family recently. I would like to meet up with a fellow American Rover guy out there if you ever have time.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

You want porn? This was in the car park where I work this morning - for those who aren't familiar, this is a "Twisted Defender" which means it has a grill kit, wheel spacers, and completely bespoke interior with stitched leather everything. Unfortunately I think even the suspension is lowered. Not really my cup of tea as I actually think they should be wheeled, but if I was a rich slob living in London, this is likely what I'd own.
Still, very very pretty

Again, if I can help with anything from across the pond, shoot me a note.

Regards,

Art
