Not me, but I was parked up in that very road at 2ish yesterday! There's a green GTV parked up outside some flats there with an 'EVO' numberplate too...

I've got two to report.

One silver phase 1 Spider sadly on the back of an AA truck on the A590 heading away from Grange-over-Sands on Thursday just gone.

And a black (or very dark green) GTV in Carlisle today - I was a few cars behind so I didn't catch the reg number but you turned left off the A595 just before the city limits.

2 for me to report today, both silver GTV twinnies: 1 parked in Wildwood Road, Hampstead Garden Suburb (where Wossie lives) lunchtime; 2nd a Y reg. about 3.55 this afternoon in Muswell Hill Broadway heading in Highgate direction - 2 male occupants (I was on foot so no flashing potential).

I live in Muswell Avenue, a turning off Colney Hatch Lane. Not seen the green GTV but will look out for it.

Nothing

Proteo Red GTV of unknown engine variety at Kirkhill Auto in Dyce, dunno if it'll be anyone off here.
I expect doom and gloom prices for my MOT today...

Red 3.0 cup in Herongate Car Park Hungerford

I've driven past this car on the road from Hungerford to the M4 a few times and been flashed back. You drove past me on the M4 (E) a few times. That was me doing a planet-saving 55MPH

Today it was parked up in the Herongate car park next to our company's gym and canteen. I've got a 2.0 Twin Spark on an R plate in case you're on here. Mint car man!

This morning noticed a silver spider parked outside some flats near the junction of Alexandra Park Road and Colney Hatch Lane - so wondering if the same one I spotted last week at its "resting place". If so it means I ahve an almost neighbour with a similar car to me that I didn't previously know about.

Alfa 4C

Spotted R845 DEG proteo red GTV 2.0 T Spark on the M25 today heading anti clockwise towards Heathrow. Couldn't believe my eyes as I was it's first owner back in 1998 and never thought I'd see it again. It's looking very well cared for. At some point the lower bumpers and side skirts have been colour coded as they were originally grey/black as per the factory finish. Does it belong to anyone on AO?

I think that was probably me. I'm glad you didn't wave, I'd have spent all afternoon trying to work out if I knew you and where from.

Not seen it since so think it must have been visiting. Been a bit thin on 916s this week - mind you getting darker on way to work and totally dark coming back so less easy to spot Alfisti.

Spotted him again on Wednesday, he was just heading coming off the roundabout at Broadbridge Heath, going towards Five Oaks. I think I got a salute this time!

If your planning a meet why not take a look at this. Meeting in OXford area could be good.
