Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Pretty silver spider, red interior, 16" wheels, blonde lady driver (I think, or may have imagined - can't remember!) southbound on Roehampton lane approaching A3 around 4pm...

... so close to perfect, but had the roof *up* on this gorgeous sunny day

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Seen so many today I even wonder whether I should bother posting in here Common as muck

Bright Red Spider in Boxworth (Just North of Cambridge) this morning. (Top down even in the fog)

Proteo Red v6 24V GTV with spoiler (R646 something) on the A1 going North at about 7 this evening. Drove in convoy for a little while.

Then a silver spider on the A14 going North at Bar Hill around 7.30. (Top up). I'm ashamed to say I was top-up as well, as I left work late and couldn't be bothered putting some loose papers in the boot If the weather continues like this, I'll be topless a few times this week

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Saw 2 GTV's in one day yesterday.

First one in the morning near Sutton, Blue TS stopped to let me out of a side road, most welcomed.

Then another TS but in silver waved to me near Streatham common.

Think drivers use GTV's as jsut their summer cars??

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Have just changed offices recently, walked up today and noticed a Proteo Red GTV (with private plate *** GTV).
Was at Bridge of Don Motors/Garage (didn't pay attention to name) up in Denmore Industrial estate...

Anyone on here? If it is, what's the garage like? I need to put mine in for (more) suspension work and it'd be a thousand times more convenient than Kirkhill. Would stop me having to take a day off for.

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Yes the GTA crew do have this.....I see far more GTV's and Spiders than GTA's - and always seem to see a GTA when not in an Alfa.

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Black GTV twinny at Matlock Bath train station car park Sunday afternoon. A nice treat for me as all I saw all day was TVRs buzzing about the place.

Unfortunately, I was in the Fiat Coupe at the time, so you won't have noticed me waving. I was driving North somewhere around Medway services I think.

If I'm in the Spider next time, I'll wave like a maniac I travel that way at weekends from Cambridge to Canterbury and back, but I switch cars frequently to keep enough charge in the battery

Yours looked a nice one (Though it was a quick spot).
I'm not normally a fan of yellow cars, but it does work on the spider

That will have been me ! I've never been spotted in 3 years on the Fiat Coupe Forum, but seen on the Spider forum !

Technically speaking, it's Portofino Blue

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Saw a darkish silvery grey GTV heading beach direction on my way to work this morning. I wouldn't usually be driving but since I was, fired in a bit of the wave.
Don't think there was a response wave, probably thought I was a nutter...

Hadn't seen that colour of GTV before...

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Filtered passed a Red Spider with the top down on the A14 passing St Ives. It had a wind deflector which must work well as I thought it was cold enough to have me heated jacket on on the bike!

Gave it on the way past
