A black S-reg GTV TS in Broad Street in Stamford, Lincs, Saturday afternoon. No wave back ...

Then a meteor grey T-reg GTV near the bus station in Stamford on Sunday morning. No wave again ...

Then a meteor grey (I think) GTV parked in a driveway in Houghton Regis Sunday afternoon.

GTV

Last week I saw two in the space of about 3 minutes! One a red TS exiting the University of Liverpool carpark. I wasn't following you, I was going to Aigburth too!

Recall a recent post that went like this
Gosh, you're selling?! I was almost there not so long ago and reconsidered. But i can fully understand. The downside is that I don't drive my car that much anymore.
But the investment in a good house is important and I wish you well with that. I only feel it a shame that I've never had a chance to meet you or your car.
Thank you for digging up that info on the list of 916 Spiders in the country. I've just realised i'm writing like you'll never come back, but just in case, i wanted to convey my appreciation.

Best of luck finding a good home for her.


make that 9 "Is" and 4 "you's"

At last!!!! An O3 Silver Spider M25 between Godstone and Reigate (CW) at about 8 this AM, my 1st solid acknowledged spot and I do enough miles. I hope you are on here. I was in the "Marmite" silver GTV and if you ever wondered how good yours looks, the answer is very.

Its amazing really, i do such a lot of mileage in my GTV all over the country and i rarely see other GTV's. I passed a red 3.0L on the M5 early wednesday morning, i waved. oh well. Poor guy looked like he was very tall and not particularly comfortable.

That'll be me... I saw your car as I was walking to the station and went back to my car to relocate my car next to its stablemate. Yes, I guess that makes me a little obsessed

Grey P reg GTV on A5 between Edgeware and Stanmore about 8.30 this morning. You (sorry, Broom) were about 3 cars ahead of me - but then you executed a cunning manoeuvre involving driving up a couple of parallel slip roads - ended up behind me

The train :(

As I was heading out Brighton this morning, I saw a red Gtv on the opposite carriageway. I think he or she spotted me too!
