Saw this P1 spider in the walled city of Carcassonne, southern France today. Wing mirrors folded to get through the narrow cobbled streets !!!

I seen a Black Phase 1 GTV around Billingbear Golf Course near Wokingham today around 2pm. I flashed (headlights) and I got a wave back. I was in my daily driver Silver GTV. Good times and a 9 over par round of golf followed. Great day!

If you visit when we are about, (PM me when you are visiting lakes again, alfa owners always welcome) if you are ok with the water...join us for a gentle sail on the lake and maybe a bit of trout fishing. Next year our yacht will be on Ullswater from March to Oct.

Keep an eye out in the Bedford/Northants area for a Proteo Red GTV that I've treated myself to!

The first Spider I’ve seen for months - it was a silver phase 2 Spider heading towards Kingston on Coombe Lane West yesterday - I was in my silver phase 3 Spider and flashed but don’t think the driver noticed...

There's a Spider at the Alacrity Foundation offices in Newport, was there the other day for a meeting and saw it parked there. You can see it on their website too, admittedly it's easier if you view the entire image though! Presumably is someone who works there...

Right a few reports from the last few weeks.

~ A black PH3 Spider JTS in Leatherhead Town Centre. I met the owner and he told me he just had the engine rebuilt. Was taking a picture of the car when he walked by. Probably thought I was a bit odd. PH3 was nice though; certainly nicer than all the other dross on the roads.

Slightly off topic but exciting.

~ Wednesday - followed an Alfa 75 TS home. J reg, black with wind deflectors. Tidy car. It was on the Leatherhead to Heathrow M25 stretch. I would have offered to buy it as we drove.

~ Thursday - same road red Alfa 8c. I couldn't quite believe my eyes. Stunner IMHO. I don't have the money to buy that unfortunately.

Spotted two yesterday.....

A silver phase 2 GTV in the centre of Saltash around 1pm. I didn't wave as I was dressed like a lunatic and collecting money for charity at the time

Then on my way back to Plymouth Uni I was passed by a Black GTV on Hyde Park Road, probably around 2.30pm.

Also spotted a lovely Silver Fiat Coupe in Saltash, so a good day spotting 90s Italians
