I followed a silver V reg Gtv into Brighton this evening which turned off near Preston Park. I think it was a V6 - it had a wing....

Black GTV/Spider approaching Westoning from the the direction of M1 J12 just now ( about 17:00 ). I was coming out of Westoning and only saw you at the last moment in the gloom!

Spotted a dark blue GTV in King Street / Chiswick high road about 7.10am most mornings. I am on foot going to the tube so no wave or nod!

Let out from Redditch Tesco's and then followed a silver 51 plate Spider; stopped at a roundabout in each lane (dual carriageway!) and said "nice car" to each other and off our separate ways

Saw a red GTV with a spoiler (possibly the cup version?) at 12 noon driving through burton latimer, Kettering.

Was coming out of Sainsbury's in my black Mito. Didn't wave but only saw the 'Alfa owner' sticker on the side of the car as it went past. Very nice

The train :(

I was followed (slowly) on to the A264, from the northbound A23, by a silver (half my spots are silver!) twinnie, this morning. He turned off towards Rusper Alfa, hopefully everything was OK.

GTV

silver gtv near spean bridge in bonnie Scotland earlier. Flashed crazily but got nothing back. Maybe I was too hidden in all of the misty spray. I was in my lovely ph1 green. Not skipped a beat over the 600 miles to Scotland and around Scotland since leaving Leics last week

CONVOY! That's a route I drive every day. I normally try to get to the A23 roundabout just before half eight in the morning.

Cool idea - but I will be on route to Monzasport to arrive at 8.15am to have a new thermostat fitted - my route will be A27 then A283 then A24 up to Horsham. I'm sure we can arrange a convoy at some point - on Sunday I will be on route between Hove (leaving 9.15am) to Barn's Green via the A23 and A272 Will keep an eye out for you

That was me!
Thanks for letting me out of the Tesco car parc I was glad when somebody stopped AND even better in a Zoe Spider Are you living around here? I've seen a Zoe Spider a few times on the A435 few weeks/months ago between Bham & Redditch, maybe that was you?

I think I spotted a black Gtv heading north (past Preston Park) on Thursday night at about 7pm, might that have been you?

And while I don't think I'll be on the road that early this Sunday (I should have said week days, not every day), I might be on Sunday week (the 7th of November):

Come along!
