Are GT's getting common?

I was driving home from work earlier and in the space of 1/2 mile I saw 3 identical GT's.

They were not directly behind each other, but were seperated by quite a distance. All of them were black with chromed mirrors

This was on the A40 near Eynsham.

They may have been in sort of a convoy but its still pretty strange to see 3 GT's so close together. Especially as there are no Alfa dealers here in darkest Oxfordshire.

Maybe the track cars used at Thruxton heading back? They could be on that road?

They were heading towards slough if you like, but slough is quite far from here.

I am pretty sure they were blacklines. They all had tinted side windows.

I do see a few silver ones around here too come to think of it, but I hardly ever see 159's and Brera's

Re: Are GT's getting common?

New Red Spiders are common as muck where I am - my drive to the office is only 15km but there are 3 that I see almost every day & none of the ignorant Swiss people so much as raise a smile to a fellow owner.

Re: Are GT's getting common?

I rarely ever see another GT on the roads in South Wales. Having said that I saw a black Blackline this morning on the M4 heading towards Cardiff. That was the 1st GT I've seen for about a month! I hope they don't get too common!

Re: Are GT's getting common?

I'm originally from witney, that'll be why people keep claiming to have seen me, even though I live 80 miles away.

I don't see many Alfas full stop. If I held my breath in between seeing them I'd die on my first journey

Wasn't me. I was at home in Cardiff- I've got witnesses honest! Last time I was in Witney was April. Saw a nice Coupe like yours at the traffic lights with MADLEY Park/ Cogges and Oxford Hill.
