Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

I can't believe reading the above that people do huge journeys and never see a GTV. On my first motorway commute i saw one on M58.

On Sunday afternoon, I saw Blue GTV along Tonbridge High Street and then a Red GTV along Hadlow road in Tonbridge.

Racing Green spider on the A428 near Caxton tonight at 6.10pm, heading towards St Neots.

I was topless for just the second time this year, (And quite chilly).

Overtook a blue P1 GTV (P reg)on the A14 westbound just before Bury St Edmunds at around 7am this morning.

Lady driving smiled and sort of nodded, but no wave.

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Spotted over the weekend.

A GTV on a trailer parked up in a lay by near the A1 approaching Doncaster. I hope it wasn't on the way to the scrap yard.

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

saw a nice red GTV heading towards Sheffield centre on Saville street this morning

So after months of not seeing any I've seen 3 in a week or something

Has the sunny weather tempted them all out of their winter garages?

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

I saw a bit of a battered (sorry) dark Red GTV, P1 I think, parked in a car park round the back of the shopping arcade on Cemetery Junction

Don't suppose it is anyone on here? When I say battered it could just be the alloys, it was pretty dark.

lol. I was watching on my digibox, 12 minutes behind reality, so you beat me to it Very nice looking one it was.

Edit: Aren't the wheels and the front grille the Phase I ones, yet the registration is 02? Hope he does an HPI check as it sounds dodgy to me, and a little overpriced at 4495

Definitely P2 grill with the chrome - same as my spider. Not sure about the wheels. I didn't carry on watching

Edit: ignore this - I just noticed it is such a monumentous event that it has been given its own thread!
