Tonight just after 8, blue (slightly purplish) W reg Spider parked in Harrow College car park (Weald) where I work. Assume an evening student as I would have seen before if staff. Left a club leaflet under wiper.

Saw another Silver Spider yesterday just north of Huddersfield around 11am - only saw it at the last moment so only a feeble wave from me ...

GTV TS

Yellow spider with the top down dropping into a petrol station at the top of the Kilburn High Road about 7pm yesterday evening. I was a pedestrian, so would have looked ridiculous waving.

Ones to watch out for:

I'm doing a trip to the French Alps with a mate of mine. He is driving his met. grey V6 GTV reg. T425 KCF.

I'll be in my red T-Spark Spider reg. S707 AOS.

Meeting up on A1 services near Leeds on Thursday 24th June at around 4pm and driving straight to Dover via A1(M) M11, M25 and M20 . Will be back on the evening of the 27th, morning of the 28th June.


Two Alfa's, twice as likely to go wrong! Look out for us and wish us luck... please! Every little helps!

It would have to be an action shot and a cup of tea passed through the window as we move - the ferry leaves at 10pm. Yes, it seems we have plenty of time but factor in traffic, fuel stops for the V6, rush hour on the M25 nicely timed and the very fact we are in Alfa's - who know what time we'll get there, if at all!!!

Thanks for the offer through, feel free to drench our cars in tea as we go under the A605 bridge! Actually, make mine a coffee!

God I hope we get there!
