RRC is exactly what he said, beautiful truck, well loved and I am proud and honored to be the new owner.

Art is a VERY stand up guy, hell of a nice family and an all around good man. And that Series which is still in the garage........ I WANT IT! Quite upset someone beat me to it. Just a super example and so tidy overall. That is a REALLY nice little truck.

I head out of here tomorrow headed for Maine eventually. The RRC should get me there - is a really solid truck, just enough little issues (and I do mean little) to be entertaining and give me some "projects" but it is by far hands down the best one I have ever seen.

So thanks again Art. Great to meet you and your family and thanks for dinner, a beer and a full tank of gas! What a good guy. :-)

Doug

Goodbye RRC - thanks for the memories

Well I have to say that was easily the most pleasant experience I've had selling a vehicle. Doug is a super great guy who I am confident will make a nice vehicle even better. I'm thrilled it will be in his capable hands and hope he will enjoy it as much as my family has.

Doug, I wish you safe travels and hope to share a beer again someday. Take care buddy.
Your friend in Denver, CO

Another follow up: I have no idea where the heck I am...... someplace mid/east Kansas off I70 sitting in Holiday Inn Express. Got a late start as i spent some time hooking up an Ipod input cable to the factory radio (yes i came with tools and electrical stuff - lol) then I made it a fair ways until I couldn't take the wheels being REALLY far out of balance so I stopped and had those rebalanced. (In Art's defense it's is highway speeds where you could tell and he probably had not noticed in his local travels)

While I waited for them to balance the wheels I bought some wiper blades, a couple qt's of Rotella and a chunk of VAC line. When they were done I took a few minutes to repair the cruise control. Works! Now to fix the ABS that 1/2 the time has the light on......

Love the truck. :D

RRC Seats

Doug,

Sure thing; just let me know a day in advance, and that will be fine.

The I70 route is the best way to go this time of year, as it gives you a chance to really drive the Rover, without having adverse weather affect the trip. As a side note; I made that same trip in 2001, originating from San Diego to Boston in a 1993 Rover County LWB. Best way to travel...

Thanks George. I will keep in touch!

John, you got it - though you may have fight Art for them since his "new" RRC needs seat covers!

No worries, happy to pass along mine for "free" as well to keep the good karma flowing. I really like to keep her happy as Karma can be one hellish bitch if you're not careful.

On the road soon, getting a gallon or so of coffee in me to pickle what ever cold bug is trying to set up camp in my head. Ugg.

Crap............



So as I was told today I-70 is a very big drug running route and there are reports of a "Stolen Black SUV heading from Colorado loaded with possible controlled substances" - LOL. WHICH ONE OF YOU BASTARDS CALLED IT IN!!?? :D

I suppose the fact that I have a Maine dealer plate on the truck it gave them cause to pull me over and search the truck FOR OVER 1.5 HOURS! I do have to say they were VERY nice to me and very willing to talk to me about the process and what they look for etc. They were all very nice - ALL FOUR COPS! AND A DOG!!

I guess I really look shifty...... damned shiny black bling bling RRC.

So once again I didn't get too far today. Currently just pulled into Vandalia, IL for the night.

Truck is going great.

Doug.

Took the pic after he took all my info, dealer reg. insurance, Colorado Title, bill of sale and all back to his cruiser. This was "before" the body cavity search of Maya. (The RRC is named Maya, there is a cute story to that)

Oh.... they really ripped it apart - carefully thank god.

I was right there and stressed to them the importance of not forcing things on an old truck and that the truck was a "collector truck". They were nice about it and gentle. But the old girl was poked, prodded and had her carpets lifted all over!

You know that scene on the side of the highway were 4 cops and drug dog have car parts, spare tire, luggage and stuff piled all over and there is a guy standing beside it all looking dumfounded and blankly.... that was me today. Only i was talking to them and actually strangely having fun with it! Too funny.

They wouldn't let me pet the dog though - I miss my two black labs....

Okay okay, I did it! I want my Rover back! (jk)

Thank goodness they didn't find my stash (did I forget to mention that?), it's actually why the vehicle has so little rust - the panels are made of the stuff. And the front seats are packed with money...oh wait, maybe that was a Cheech & Chong movie...

The thought did cross my mind as they started searching "hmmmm, I hope Art didn't forget a little baggie of anything in here if he's into that".

But even the dog that was ALL OVER the truck didn't get excited.

Even when they let a little air out of the spare tire for the dog to sniff it... crazy.

One thing that made me laugh is they never looked above the sun visors or in the center console. So to all those punk ass kids reading this: If you need to hide some "good stuff" in your car, put it in the easy common spots and they will never see it.

One officer was even crawling around under the back end of the truck with a flashlight. I asked him if he'd mind checking the rear differential oil. His humor was not as good as some of the other officers so I shut up. Heh heh.

That's crazy stuff
Reminds me of when I left a boat in Bimini Bahamas with a lower unit issue. Mech flew from FL, fixed and came back with the boat. Coast guard boarded the vessel and proceeded to turn it upside down. Found nothing but made for a great story for the mechanic

Safe journey Doug!

I may be wrong in feeling this, but I would have been pissed had they pulled me over for driving a black SUV and then taken my RRC apart. I mean a) you cant really get good replacement parts for a truck like that had they broken something and you would pay for it b) they should know the make and model of said stolen vehicle c) seems almost like they searched the truck without probable cause... Maybe it's just me. But I do have a 25th Anniversary RRC and I would not like it if anyone but someone I trusted took it apart... Anybody else feel like that?

Did they have a warrant? If not, DON'T CONSENT!!!!!!! I would have gone apeshit (in a polite way) on them.

evilfij: what's the charge?

officer: we have a report of a drug running black SUV

evilfij: that's nice, it is not me, if there is no charge I am leaving

officer: can I look around?

evilfij: not without a warrant. I note that the time, according to my blackberry, that you pulled me over is [____], please let that be reflected in your report.

officer: goes back to car, can't get warrant

[20 minutes elapses]

evilfij: 20 minutes is up, am I under arrest or being detained?

officer: you are free to go

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND USE THEM

I think to search a vehicle they only need probable cause including substantial evidence, but driving a black SUV is no where near probable cause. To search a home or property they need a warrant. I may be wrong.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
