Hmmm Was that you?

Now that we have our very own south central region, I thought it would be a good idea to have a south central "was that you?" thread....

Waved to a silver 159 coming off A34 northbound into Oxford this morning. No response... but I think the guy was still asleep to be fair to him!

Was thinking the same myself...

A while ago now, but passed a bright/light blue 145 heading North on the A32 as I drove down to A&M last Wednesday afternoon. Colour not to my taste, but quite distinctive... Was that you?

Hmm, I think I've seen the same light blue 145 around the Gosport area a few times. He's never responded to my waves, so I have concluded he is not an AO'er

Saw a gorgeous Black Brera yesterday evening at dusk heading through Durley coming from the Hedge End direction.

I didn't wave as I was in the Fiat!!

Just saw a lovely Blue Spider on the A3 heading north. Waved and flashed but he just looked at me as if I have just been released from an Asylum!!!!

Yes, excellent idea for a thread.

Today- blue 156 on the A32 heading south at about 7:45. I often wave at him- he sometimes replies!

Tuesday night- left an AO flier on the windscreen of a silver GTV with number plate ???? GTV in the car park of Badger Farm Sainsburies, Winchester. He waved later as I drove off and he was sat in car.

All today. Did not wave at, as I was on the motorbike.

Silver GT in Fareham this morning, outside Domino's pizza.

Red 159Ti parked on the B3046 between Old Alresford and Axford. By a nice pub I can't remember the name of.

Silver 147 coming out of Morestead towards Winchester.

I was at the bottom of the A34 at noon. I could not believe how busy it was down there, I'm really glad I was on the bike. I was completing a recce for tomorrow's run.

well try it marc, you will be amazed at the results.
i will test the theory further today as i venture into the wilds of dorset/devon.
i think they still eat people down there, so heaven knows what they will make of the wave!

Nearly fell off the driving seat yesterday, as got waved at first by a black Mito in the Chandlers Ford area- I sometimes get a reply, but to be waved at first is a rare thing indeed!

Yes- saw Paul last week- got to feel the power of his V6! Now my poor 2.0 JTS just doesn't feel the same...

I work in Chandlers Ford, as I have done since the late 70's. Yet to see a MiTo though. Rarely anything else Alfa either, except for a kids' parents' cars: a solitary GTV and a 164 TS and a regular wave established with a driver of a black GT.

Spotted Kiki, near the Pear Tree roundbout in Oxford at around 1.15pm today.

I recognised the car from Auto Italia


I was in the works van unfortunately so I didn't wave.
