San Francisco Street Sighting - 1978 International Scout II
I always hear people in other parts of the country talking about how rust-prone the International Scout was. To some extent I believe them. This 1978 Scout II is apparently an anomaly, as are the other Scouts I've spotted in the Bay Area. For example, my neighbor's golf buddy has a Scout (pictured below) that looks nearly brand-new, and it's older than the yellow one above. I'm no expert on old 4x4s, but this modded yellow Scout looks ready for some off-roading fun. And even if it never goes off-road, it must be fun to scare Prius-driving greenies on SF's famous hills!
