I've had my twinkie for 7 months or so now - occurred to me yesterday how few I'd seen until I overtook one yesterday on the motorway.

I saw one in 2002 in a car park in Exeter when I got my 164, and one in Bolton recently.

Are you here LHC 22, grey 3.0 M62 Rochdale Junction? Was great to see the ante-eater front in my rear view mirror, looks quite good actually....

Re: 166-spotting

Yep, a rare beast indeed. I guess, if only approx 2,000 were sold in the UK, there are a lot less now. It's nice to be driving something that gets admiring glances. You can see people trying to work out what it is. I think they think it's a big 156!

around the 3k to start with minus the wrecked ones and scrapped ones plus the 12 or so exmalaysian ones...(how are the new 166's doing?)
