The train :(

Not sure I'll get a response on this one.

I spotted a Gtv, or possibly a spider, heading towards Fittleworth from Petworth.

The reason I couldn't tell what it was is that it was at about 7.15 last night and I was driving in "enthusiastic" mode, I didn't have long to spot that it was a 916 (what with the sidelights being virtually invisible unless your eyeball is on them).

That sir, could well have been me! I was down there with my girlfriend for a weekend break in Burpham and arrived about 7:30ish.
I didn't notice a GTV or Spider on the way down, was I blind or were you in something else?

Aye yes, yours was black, I saw a red one later in the day (ended up going to London).

Thanks for compliment! I am really pleased with it.

They are good cars for zooming up the motorways arn't they!

Well I've just checked google and we would have been on Haslingbourne Lane, with you heading east. About 30 seconds after we passed, you would have gone up a left hand / right hand bend and then through some temporary traffic lights.

As I said, it was dark and I only just spotted you; but only when we would have been within about 20 feet of each other. I was in Blue Thunder.

Right, I'm with you on the location and I was heading east but I could have sworn I was at that point about 30 minutes earlier. Maybe it wasn't me afterall :-(

A blue p2 GTV with original smooth 16" teledials in traffic outside Harrods today. The driver didn't notice the Rosso GTV ( me ) a few feet away going in the opposite direction.

A ?Black? GTV on the hard shoulder of the M69 about 0950 today. OSF puncture by the looks of it. Hope those teledials weren't damaged.

GTV 3.0 V6 24v

Saw a Nuvola Blue GTV on Hospital Lane, Blaby (Leicester) a couple of weeks ago. Was in the S-Max so no wave; not seen you since while driving the GTV.

Bromham Road Bedford today about 5:45 pm red GTV P1 - was it you PKR ? I was holding up traffic by crossing the road with a push bike - you didn't look too happy about it !

Cheers

Hmm. Thought I had it nailed. The reg number was private something like PKR 5M. I had it memorised but then forgot it when the kids started badgering me to set off some fireworks..
