I had my eye on this little buggy ever since it first showed up on D & D Auto's lot back in October. If you live here, you need at least one 4 X 4 runabout. Not for snow or ice, but for the mud that covers the roads out in the valley, and for the rocky roads you have to negotiate up in the hills, especially if you're going to a start point for a hike and climb, or geocaching. (It's parked on a "road" in the above photo). There's no shortage here of Jeeps, Sidekicks, Trackers, Broncos and Bronco II. It may not get driven as much as the Escape or even the van, but when it goes out, it will be because it's needed.
Or just for fun.
Facts: 1987 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4 x 4. 105,000 miles (!) It will be getting more serious tires early next week. It's red! :-)
