They were probably too shocked - you should've used your car's lights...

Mmm you call yourself Starkers and you flashed at someone!!! I think i have read something about this in the Argus newspaper, it may be the bit where two little old lady's were passing and it caused one of them to have a stroke and the other lady could'nt quite reach

Held up a stonking gunmetal grey 3.2 at the roundabout in front of Horsham train station whilst oggling at it (apologies for that).
Nice wheels, sounding great and perfect numberplate
I was sadly driving my wife's C3, taking my daughter's old fridge to the tip I felt seriously under-dressed

Was it a spider? If so, it might be Paul.Spider, although I don't know if his is a 3.2.

Couldn't see if the third brake lights were fixed yet now she's a QC , she'd still got a BBC car alarm though, arming it when the roof was down again too !

GTV 3.2 V6

Well, in the last few weeks I've driven all over the place and only seen two other GTVs! A dark red PH3 along Steyning by-pass Sunday 6th May (IIRC) - passed too quickly to exchange a wave....then on Saturday saw a great looking PH2 GTV with aero spoiler in the vicinity of Hampton Court/Kingston and we exchanged waves - good man

Yes, he probably wouldn't understand you - wise move.

If you speak loudly, then they understand you.

Re: Spotted a GTV?Spider who was it?

Saw a silver Spider on Heaton Moor Road in Stockport. I was walking at the time and not in my own silver Spider so he probably wondered why I waved!!

GTV cup overtook me this morning joining the M1 from the M25 heading north. Didn't have time to flash, he had gone.

Drove from Brighton to Bodmin along some fantastic (and very fast ) roads yesterday. The only time I saw a Gtv was when I stopped at Cullompton services and saw a blue V6 heading back towards the westbound M5
