Ladies & Gents are we GTV drivers snobs ?
Decided this week to carry out a highly scientific experiment had to cover a lot of miles so took GTV for 3 days..... got a few of the usual blankings / confused looks from fellow Alfa drivers, but many Alfisti waved / flashed etc... all GTV's ( @ 5 ) flashed / waved / raised a hand.
Then 2 days with the Mito..... one very enthusiastic wave / flash from a lady in a black Mito one big flash / raised hand from 166 ( we were proceeding at a respectable pace officer ), BUT each and every GTV blanked / ignored me.... the best being a lovely dark red one @ temporary lights this evening , the driver seriously looked like I had poured neat lemon juice down his throat

Come on we are all Alfisti and should respect others with such impeccable taste

You could well be right, though frankly living up in West Yorkshire even the GTV drivers don't wave... silvery green GTV in Leeds this morning... you know who you are! Booooooooooooooo

BradPitt999, I think that might have been me!

Is yours a black GTV? Spotted it heading South on the M5 - looked good!

I did wave, don't know whether you caught it - the Northbound carriageway is slightly raised there so I'd have been more difficult to see if you were heading South.

Black Spider about 300m east of M1 J11 yesterday afternoon about 15:40 headed towards Luton. Couldn't be sure what it was until very close owing to the sun's glare but I did flash and wave!

'03 GTV V6

Blue Spider just coming out of Kilby Bridge midday today. Nice Blond lady driver waved & flashed . Its a miracle that I ever come accross one on the road. I realised today that I have done less than 4K in it over the last 12 months including a trip to Spa

The train :(

I saw three on Saturday:

First, a silver Gtv with a spolier going eastbound towards the A23 turnoff on the M25.

Second was a blue V6 parked up near the Greyhound in Penkhull, Stoke.

Third was a dark metallic red Gtv on a P plate in the southbound carpark of Watford Gap services between about 7 and 8. I would have said hello to the driver but she was on the phone.
