A nice red GTV, ending PJV or something similar, going down Colemansmoor in Woodley, Reading?? Unfortunately not in mine to give a wave!

In Latin, that would be "question expecting the answer yes" given that someone not on here could hardly answer "no"

GTV V6 Q2

Just got back from Tesco at Tower park Poole where I parked up next to a black spider in the far reaches of the car park. Licence was (sort of) 'ALFA'

Anyone on here?

I know there are not many GTVs about on the road these days which is not a bad thing as it makes them a little bit exclusive , but i like spotting another one having a quick flash and a smile but of late i have not seen any around the Telford and have started thinking of flashing any Alfa driver just to keep my skills up .

So i was wondering how many of you live in the Telford /Shropshire area have you laid your cars up for the winter , which i would love to do but cant.

The last one i saw was a very nice and shiney Red one just before Christmas out side TK Max almost 3 months a go .

Idea, can we have some you've been spotted by alfaowner.com stickers? Then we can drive more owners to the forum by slapping them on our parked up sightings.

Its easy enough to recognize a reg from the last 3 letters

Great idea thanks for sharing

just kidding would never do that to another GTV, plus I don't drive to London by car anyway

The train :(

Beeped the horn at a "V" registered silver V6 as I entered the Shell petrol station opposite Preston Park (in Brighton) last night - the man looked at my car and said "good taste" but I didn't get a chance to ask him if he was on AO

Drove from Accrington to Huyton (Liverpool) on the 04-03-10, didnt see any other Alfa on my travels, but had a few waves and flashes. Must have been because i was posing @ 80+ with my top down. Jealousy gets you nowhere
