Saw a Vela blue GTV just like mine but with Aero kit so probably a V6 on the way from Godalming to Milford on Tuesday about 5.15pm, we whizzed past each other so only managed a quick look and a confused smile

- Black GTV on the A35 heading West near Lyndhurst around 8.30am
- Silver GTV heading North in Clapham/Stockwell area about 2.00-2.30pm
- Yellow Spider heading East somewhere SW London (!) around 2.30-3.00pm
- Blue Spider overtook me in the rain heading South-West on the M3 around, I dunno, 3.30pm probably

The most sightings I've ever had in one day... and I was in a U-Drive Transit so couldn't wave!!

Red GTV Cup in the Hatfield tunnel then on the 414 towards St albans. Waves and smiles. Lovely GTV! I was in other half's Mito... on my way to put a deposit down on my new red GTV! Will post some piccies when I get her on Friday. Not as pretty as your cup, but I'm very excited. (Olly is like a five year old when he gets a new car)

GTV Cup

Nice one Olly, that was me and my lad in the Cup. The Mito looked good too, love those rear lights. Did you see the GT a couple of cars in front in the tunnel?
Get those piccies posted when you get the GTV.

This morning just after 8 - a red GTV at Whetstone - stationary at Totteridge Lane / High Road traffic lights heading east. I was heading west and didn't see you in time to wave or flash.

Weren't the five (or so) silver Cups that went to Europe? That would be a truly rare spot if it's one of those, but I guess it would be LHD. More likely as you say Gaz, a wannabe with the kit

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 .
Me me me i'm in Telford ( Wellington ). Dont see many myself, saw one (red) coming out of the little office complex with partnership house & st james house on - maybe work for the same company as me... dont see many others around but if we cross paths i'll be sure to say hello in my silver 3.0

no way i'd put her up for the winter, too beautiful to not drive every day. And the petrol station next to my house would go bump so i'm supporting the local community too

GTV V6 Lusso

Well. I was walking to Burnham train station in Slough Trading Estate today and saw a red V6 pull rather enthusiastically out of a junction right in front of me. I didn't see the front - only the rear, so it was possibly a Cup.

It had some kind of sports exhaust because it sounded glorious! Anyone on here?

As I was waiting by the wonderfully named "vogue gyratory" in Brighton this morning, I saw a red Gtv flash across the Lewes Road. It went up Bear Road. Who dat?

I should look here more often - that was my wife Liz with my eldest daughters and grandaughter on their way to my other daughters wedding - S8 is indeed my GTV. I was in a 1930s Roller someway up ahead with the bride to be.

My daughters wouldn't understand but did pass on your message by which time it was too late for Liz to respond (they were a bit preoccupied as well!!.

My daughters live in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells -so if I am visiting and you see me come and say hello again and we'll have a proper conversation.

A14 twice today (25 March) a nice black P reg Spider - waves, light flashes exchanged this morning.

On the way back more waves and he turned off the A14 before me as we headed towards Felixstowe.

Anybody here?
