Red Spider with 7-hole alloys (so 2006/7) parked-up opposite the greens on the front at Lytham.

Not Alfa, but also spotted a Ferrari 456 also in Lytham;
a red Maserati 3200 or 4200 with cream interior at the front of Wetherspoon's in St. Annes.
That model of Maserati's looking very dated now IMHO, the other half didn't even comment on it, walked straight past it .

The red SW in Tilehurst Road was probably me mate. I know the Cunning Man well too. Me and Stan Bowles (my dog) park up there, go for a walk and then finish up having a cheeky beer after most evenings.

Was it you I wave a few days ago in Oxford Road near Wickes? Also didn't I wave to you a few years ago but I'm sure you had a black 159 but I was driving a 147?

Sound like we need to organise a mini meet if you are up for a cheeky beer in the Cunning Man.

Yeah, it was. I remember a white 147 late edition on the Oxford Rd a couple of years ago? Just had one 159 though, and its always been red

Always up for a cheeky beer mate, and the Cunning Man is as good as any!

That white 147 was the one I vinyl wrapped three years ago. Maybe I'm getting you confuse for another black 159 I've seen a few times in the past 2 months. Will definitely organise a cheeky beer one day .

Brera on the M6 north Wednesday night, I gave them a "Halo Flash" then they had a quick punt before pulling out the way so I could go play with the Audi A7 Black Edition that they were following.

I passed a Stromboli Grey Brera in Cornwall on Friday afternoon - He was heading East out of St Austell on the A390, close to St Blazey if I remember.

Got a wave too

Just got back from a three day business trip to Exeter. Silver Brera on Topsham road Tuesday night and Red Brera on a 56 plate on the A30 near Honnington yesterday morning. First Breras I've seen for ages.

This afternoon I saw a Black Brera on an 06 plate, heading down onto the IDR northbound from Castle Hill, Reading. Unfortunately I was Alfa free at the time...
