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

I've created a Google Maps "MyMap" that will allow us to plot our usual driving area on a custom Google Map.

Details in this thread.

Might make it easier to work out who you spotted!

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

Last week I overtook a beautiful S reg Spider between Pease Pottage, who turned off at the Sayers Common junction off the A23. It was driven by a man with white hair who looked as pleased as I was to be driving a Gtv.

And today I was driving out of Horsham after work and saw a silver Gtv that I've seen around before but today was the first time that I have had the chance to wave - the driver waved back.

Anyone on here?

I saw a similar on on a tow truck heading south on the M1 yesterday around Leicester. I wonder if it's heading south for the summer?

Wow - 2 spiders in 1 week.

This one was a P plate Silver spider, two up, pulling onto Sainsbury's huntingdon and let us pull out.

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

woohaa!

my first gtv wave, oldish chap in a silver p1/p2 spider (with a luggage rack on the boot) driving toward norton green.

manically waving at him sort of left him no option but to sheepishly raise his hand

Seems like there's quite a few of us in Bracknell - haven't seen any black or red ones though - just a green one like mine, a blue left-hand drive import on Southern Industrial estate.

Give us a wave if you see us on Bracknell town's streets...

Well, it's not a 'real' spider, but there was a new Spider on Eastenders tonight Looks like there's a real Alfa fan in the props department

Dark green or blue GTV heading into Richmond on Friday evening across the A316, sometime around 6.30 or 7pm?

Was sitting in my Spider at the lights, but hidden behind a bus - I don't think you'd have seen me!

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

Great weekend for seeing GTVs for me......Exchanged waves with a green Spider in South Lopham, Norfolk yesterday (sat) - top man! Hardly ever see another GTV, let alone get a wave so ta!

Annoyingly I missed a potential wave from blue GTV in Attleborough this morning - was totally looking in the wrong direction. Also waved at a silver Spider in Diss in the afternoon.
