A green spider leaving Nottingham centre last night, hottest day of the year and the roof is up.
Nice looking car.

Probably playing-up. I've been there, and you do feel like a right plonker.

There is a red Twinnie GTV "P241 PFH" with aftermarket 5-spokes sitting in the compound of J.C.Autos at Marsh Barton, Exeter today. Looks very nice condition.

There was a nice vela blue phase 2 spider driving along the Lower Bristol Road in Bath this lunchtime. It was on an 04 plate which surprised me as I thought they were selling phase 3 cars long before that.

No wave as I was in my Fiesta (downpour was imminent). I have yet to see another spider whilst driving my spider!

PS car behind is a Porsche, similar model that James Dean was driving, when he came off the road and was killed!

The "Porsche" is a 356 Speedster and most likely a beetle based replica. The originals are very rare and frighteningly expensive (like the price of a nice house, sort of expensive). James Dean was driving a 550 Spider when he died, same period, but a totally different animal to the 356.

I'm a Porsche nut and have had several over the years. Including a lovely 1973 911T which when I look at the prices they're fetching these days, really wish I hadn't sold it when I did

James Dean also famously owned a white 356 Speedster as well of course.

UK Speedsters spotted these days tend to be Chesils, still worth a few quid but nothing close to the value of the car they're based on.

Blue spider (ignorance stops me saying which phase). Think it was the last model before the 946 spider.

It was on the back roads near Mortimer. Looked great, but get your roof down!!!

Light blue GTV on A12 near Ipswich. I think the reg was MY05 GTV. I only saw the back but think this would mean it was a phase 3.
