Think that was probably me. Passed another GTV on same journey, St Albans seems to be a GTV hot spot!

My lucky day!

A green ts on a private plate ExxxRAF at the Osewstry Services roundabout on the A5 at 8:30am and a silver P reg ts (with yellow sticker onthe back near the Gtv badge) on the M53 near the Cheshire Oaks turn off at 1:30pm.

Silver, I was the black Audi that flashed you a lot and waved like an idiot!

hey guys - been off for a few weeks in south of spain..nice and hot, lovely weather, lots of rioja (thought you'd like that..)

question - is there a specific alfa wave?! i generally see another gtv or spider most times i'm out in fulham and if the tops down on mine, i basically lean right out swinging the arm and generally making sure i can't be avoided - good etiquette?!

Followed a silver Twin Spark GTV, reg S***HKP from Upper Layham into Hadleigh on the B1070 this afternoon.

I am not sure if they spotted me following them or not.

have a 2004 black Spider Lusso. My son has a black 1998 black lusso Spider. We turned a few heads yesterday in Banbury when we drove through town together (I know!! ....sad ain't it....)
What are the odds of seeing TWO black spiders together??

Any other dad & son combos out there? (or parent & offspring)

Oh yes!!.... my car is now officially "sarcastic green" ( yeah right... ). I fine evening Gaz, and a damn good journey back on the M60/M66... that GTV with the noise attached is absolutely mental!!!...i MUST have a 3ltr v6 next.... although it won't have that massive pipe under mine like yours...that's a one-off!!!

Well hello I often see a black with spoiler, silver, and a yellow spider travelling along Coopers Green Lane / Sandpit lane. As you say the area appears to be a hot spot.

"sarcastic Green"

Better than "scouring pad green"

spotted, waved and nodded at a dark blue gtv heading the other way down the dual carriageway into bracknell from reading (a329m?) - received a nod back - was probably a bit OTT with the wave but have been ignored the last couple of times so decided to really make the effort this time
who was it?!
