GT 916 spider

Just got back from a tri[p thru France to Italy and back, never realised how rare 916's are, in 2300 miles over 10 days saw 1 blue spider and 1 silver GTV around Turin.

Saw far more Ferraris

Red GTV going into Asda Fulwood, 2pm today.
The elderly chap at the wheel was one of the few completely oblivious to my white Spider leaving.

A50 Leicester Shell

Saw a spider coming out of the Shell Garage in Glenfield, Leicester, bit further down from the Glenfield hospital.

I honked my horn and waved but as I was in my toyota he totally ignored me (fair enough. )

Yes it was the same for us back in the summer on our trip to Italy, never saw one spider, 2 GTV's one in Assesi in protoe red and one in Turin in black. Got a good wave from each though.
Where did you go?

We were in Kefalonia in Greece for 2 weeks driving around - loads of Alfas everywhere, hundreds of them - 156s (including a very dirty red GTA), 159s, 145s, 146s, 147s, GTs, 155s, a 75, a 33, Breras...Giuliettas, Mitos...etc etc

...but no 916 GTV/Spiders at all...!

I've just got back from a run around southern Ireland in the Spider. Didn't see a single 916. In fact only saw two rather weary looking 159s in over 800 miles of driving. Got the most waves from a gang of Dutch Porsche 911 drivers!
Spider was spot on, never missed a beat.

Silver GTV (P2?) on Plymbridge Road in Plymouth yesterday (Saturday 3rd).

I think my wave was returned but the sun was in my eyes so can't be certain.

Tucked away in a small parking area on the Glenridding to Pooley Bridge rd by Ullswater, I glimpsed a wine coloured Spider (nice colour) Is it yours?

In Bridgwater Sainsburys a Silver 916 Spider and a W reg Black Spider at the traffic lights nearby, also a later Blue Spider and a 147 in the car park by Currys. 4 Alfas in the same area - must be a record! No waves as I was using my bus pass.....

Last Sunday afternoon - Acidio Verde P reg spider on the M4 near Cardiff north. Nice car, clean.

I was in my similar colour Saab Convertible with the family, so didn't feel right to wave!

Black GTV on A392 from Trowbridge to Frome at about 12.30 this afternoon. I was the red ph2 on the other side waving madly with my 6 year old Daughter. She thought black is a way cooler colour. I beg to differ...

Very smart Red Ph3 Spider in lay-by near Barnstaple, driver on phone & I was in my motorhome so no waves. Saw one other Spider near Loo a few days previous. Not many Alfas in Cornwall....

Hey, that was me. Was walking through Glenrdding with the Mrs when I spotted a very tidy Silver Spider driving by in that direction, was that yourself?

Bingo! That was well tucked away. Our spider is actually grey. We were up looking at our 2016 boat moorings on Ullswater.
