I average about 1 every 2 or 3 months here in Nashville, not counting the couple I help wrench on from time to time. Passed one on the interstate a couple weeks ago and posted on here. There is a guy about 5 miles from us who has 3 and his son has one, We were in east Tennessee/ western N.C. this past weekend and didn't see any at all and I was looking. Passed through Maryville and Townsend, clarrance, and expected to see at least a couple.

It is hit or miss around here. In the summer I see a few on US 50 or 301 but as far as local ones. I know of around 5 in my county but only two of them I have seen on the road in the last year. I would say mine and my wifes are on the road more than any others. In the Annapolis area there are a few too.

There is (2) that sit right in Townsend one is a brown lifted 74 with white flares that sits right on Hwy 321 and another blue one behind the one and only grocery store in Townsend. Bajafresh bought a uncut green 77 in Townsend a few months ago. Several around Maryville but you have to be on back roads to see them.

I had not seen any for years and then this summer I saw a half cab parked in a guys garage. Other than that I see none around my neighborhood. I did get a nice look at a couple at Silver Lake this summer.

I know where 1 used to be, haven't been by there in a while to see if it's still parked in the drive. I seen a yellow one several weeks ago that stayed in a yard a week or so then vanished.

I see them very rarely around here. (Bowling Green, KY)

I guess being in Az there's quite a few around here too. I drive out of town for work and have seen the same 4 from the highway un moved in 3 years. I finally broke down and called on one that looked particularly rough sitting in an equipment yard off of I-40, thye told me it was sold. 2 sit side by side in a trailer park in Wikieup Az. The last one is sitting in someones back yard off of I-40 in Yucca AZ. When I get the garage built I'll probably start buggin these folks. Saw a really pretty grey one at the Costco in Prescott on Sunday. Nice bumpers, new paint wish I'd had my camera to show you. There's also one in in Bagdad (the town where I'm workin) lifted, yellow with a black soft top, it kills me though cause I know it's history and remember when it was red, white, blue and black, it looks good, but not he way a Baja should look!

Well here in Albuquerque the wife and I use to play a game around about Christmas time in the mid-80s and see who could spot the most Broncos. I recall that we totaled maybe 20 or so in a month's time. Lately the total for an entire year is about half that, and that's a generous estimate. They don't rust here obviously. I think those darn Tejnas are buying 'em all up and shipping east.

Here in the ATL it seems more are creeping out of the woodwork, especially on Craigslist. Just in my commute I know of 5-10 of them but the are usually not driven as daily drivers so I don't always see them on the road. A couple of weeks ago I did go look at an EB for sale on CL and when I pulled up the guy had 10+ of them in the weeds and in his garage, his father's garage down the street.... so I guess you could say, I've seen quite a few lately!

There are a few around, but not nearly as many and there were years ago. I live in a town of 2500 and there used to be 10-12 here. Now I know of only one other than mine and I am not sure if it is being driven.

It's OK to give out, but NEVER give up.
