Oi! You're just down the road from me. I live on the south bank of the Tyne - does that make me a southerner?

Spotted two within 10 minutes this morning. A shiny red one near West Worthing station and a green one on the A259 to Littlehampton. Both acknowledged being flashed

Zoe Spider

Gentleman driver in a silver GTV in Brentford yesterday morning. I had to cut through three lanes of traffic in our vw golf and he let me in. Also a stunning red GTV 3.0 V6 going south on the M5 between Bristol and Exeter Friday late afternoon.

Silver GTV southbound on the A4146 at about 12:10 between Edlesborough and Dagnall. Been to Autolusso? Exchanged lights and waves ( I was driving my wife's silver facelifted 156 ).

946 Spiders

I know this isn't really the place, (except if you are JillyFlower ) but just been looking at the 946 forum and they don't seem to have a spotting thread. I quite often see 2 946s, one Alfa red the other black, westbound on Barnet Lane Elstree about 6 in the evening, when I'm going eastwards. Not flashed but made eye contact (yes, traffic is that bad - fortunately its them that are nearly stationary) and neither driver looks like they are likely to "get it"; I wonder if they even recognise a 916?
