I saw a red GTV around my way in Grove Park (South East London) last weekend, going the opposite way to me, I flashed and waved and the driver waved back!

Have previously had a bit of a race around the A20/A205 area with a phase1 also in green. Hopefully no pc plod reading this post!

Is amazing how sometimes I dont see any for days then all of a sudden 2 or 3. I went to Halfords Bromley to get some coolant yesterday, and managed to park right next to a red spider with the roof down. It was gorgeous looking, so I took a pic (see in my photos).

Someone in the flats opposite me owns a dark blue 147, but that doesnt really count does it.

Of course, I was very, very drunk

Ha, convinced I was going to see a picture of my bella. I popped into Halfords Bromley on Sat to get some polish, and left it parked with the roof down. But that isn't mine. I've got a tan interior! What are the odds though!

Exactly, though there is a red Phase 3 I've seen around and about Hayes.

I'm in Coney Hall/Hayes. Would love to come but too busy at home. Builders should have finished patio and garden room by Friday and I have a grade to put back togetehr for the summer! Hopefully next year.

I followed a Silver V reg Spider TS for a few miles between J14 and 15 on the M1 this morning about 8am. Drew level as it turned off at J15 but the attractive blonde lady driver blanked me :-(

I past a silver spider this morning on the M6 at about 7.30am ish. It was coming North as i was heading South and it must have been instinct for me to look over the central reservation and see it at that moment. Did it see me though, i don't know, i did wave too.
