GTV CUP 69

Red CUP in Richmond

Saw my first fellow cup at the Richmond Circus in South West London while on the way to a friend for lunch. G*51 ... came past me on the inside as we approached the roundabout so not sure if he saw me in all the traffic.

Spotted a Yellow Phase 2 Spider at Chobham Festival mid afternoon today, parked up. Looked fresh out of the cleaners.

GTV 2.0 TS

We are not alone

Made a procession of two through Stockport rush hour traffic - my blue GTV TS and a red V6 behind me until I got home. Then saw one of the newer GT's in my mirror on the way back from the supermarket. Not alone, but still hardly common! As an old VW Baywindow owner, I should be used to waving, but I haven't yet tried it on an Alfa... mind you, none have waved at me yet either!

Dont worry mate, it happens to me as well. I'm sure that people will see the Gtv's in a different light soon like older classics. We have got there first and is setting the trend for others to follow

GTV Cup No.72

My horrendous journey down the M1 yesterday morning was lightening by looking in my mirror and seeing a phase 1 V6 GTV in eclipse grey tailing me in my Cup near junction 14.

When we finally cleared that particular jam I pulled over and got a massive nod and grin as he screamed past. I would have followed suit but I don't know the M1 and my satnav was screaming at me to slow down due to speed cameras.

The train :(

I was passed by Blue spider (top down) heading towards the Palace Pier in Brighton this evening, I think I spied it again about 20 minutes later on Portland Road in Hove.
