I floored it down to the bottom of the bypass, rounded the roundabout, and shot back up. It took me all the way to Newick to catch up and followed him until Chailey where he pulled over in the service station to reveal a deep red TS Spider. I pulled up alongside, popped down the window and told him "Nice car, chap!" He looked a little shocked - his lady passenger laughed

So I went about 5 miles out of my way, just to say hi to another 916 driver. I think I'm ill

Well done RM

I saw a silver spider this morning (on a private plate), heading out of Horsham to join the A264. No wave though.

I commented to my girlfriend that the Giulietta in red (or a Mito) would be a great next car for her!

We only turned off to put the hood down (Cheshire weather).

You had the hood down when I saw you so I assume you mean you were stopping to put it up. It chucked it down a few minutes later as we were heading into the doors of John Lewis. Nice looking Spider btw.
