Lovely red GTV this morning at the A5/A43 roundabout as I was heading to Silverstone for the 1000km - ran in convoy for a few miles before I pulled into a layby for some breakfast. Flashed and waved and got a flash in return - for the first time in years!

The train :(

Saw a black Gtv with the registration plate R 22 GTV on the A24, going from Horsham towards Crawley on Thursday (or maybe Wednesday - can't remember, it must be my age). Anyone on here?

Gave a lovely-looking red Spider a flash of the lights at Hurn today and a will-they-won't-they steering-wheel wave, got a proper arms-above-car wave back!

New girlfriend suitably impressed

They are 18" Audi A8 from Rochford Tyres on fleebay. I have a friend who runs a sign making business cut me some one off Alfa logos in black vinyl for the large centre caps and they look great (in my opinion, of course, because they are not Alfa wheels). Its funny though, if my car was a different colour, i wouldn't of bought them. i do think they suit the Blue. Thanks for the compliment.

Spotted my first GTV cup, IIRC S25 GTV parked up in the lane near the Letchworth Tennis Club (17:30).

EDIT: Looks like it belongs to Dogbreath.
