Saw a lovely red GTV with a cup type spoiler near Bellahouston Park in Glasgow yesterday. Tried to wave, but busy driving!

Red GTV parked up in Mayfield when I go to work in the morning, have seen you just before you gets to its parking spot the last couple of nights (I'm in the blue GTV)

I saw the same Sargasso green GTV twice today. Once heading West out of Dunstable at about 16:00 and about 3/4 hour later turning off the A4146 towards Eaton Bray.

2 on the way to work today, don't normally see any - maybe because I was a bit later..
Black Spider roof up turning into Alexandra Park Road at Junction with Colney Hatch Lane (London N10) about 8.10 - I did (had hood down), don't think he saw me.

About 8.30 A41 dual carriageway northbound near Stanmore, overtook (at low speed - just picked the right lane!) a dark blue GTV 3.0 - I stayed parallel for a bit and looked across trying to make eye contact, but no joy.

This is the point when the Northern contingent jump in and say it's because everyone south of the M61 is a miserable ******* because they don't get enough black pudding and Thwaites bitter, and wouldn't know a cowheel pie if it landed on their head.

Hmm, I was going to say that if it was sliver and going at speed then it could have been me but I see it was a spider. My roof is not made of fabric.

This morning, I flashed past a blue / black spider on the A27, just by the Portslade turn off and gave a toot. If you're going to drive it that slowly, old boy, you might as well put your roof down. Failing that, you'll find that if you give the lever on the right in the footwell a bit of a shove, you'll probably enjoy the car a bit more - it makes a good noise too.

Sat on the forecourt of the garage on Broadway, Yaxley,lunchtime today, neat looking black spider; stopped to investigate to see how much it was for sale but found it belongs to a lady who regularly has it serviced there. Lovely red leather mmmmm. Reg reads Judith -I think!

Join the club! This is my 150th post on this thread, and I've yet to have an acknowledgement that one of my spottings is someone on here, neither has anyone spotted me.

I have had an acknowledging nod about three time out of the 150.

Certainly the GTV drivers round here seem to wave to each other (as the 164 and 155 V6 drivers did when I had those) no one seems to wave to or notice a wave from the 156 sportwagon and waves only seem shared between the same models.

A149 sightings - rare indeed!

On my way home monday evening, coming west towards me a black 70's (maybe 80's?) Spider, followed very shortly after by a virtually new Red one.
Then this morning coming the other way saw PaulR in his Silver GTV.
Three in 24hours is a rare thing indeed around here!
