was that you?

Spotted a really nice dark blue alfa (possibly a 147, didn't get a good enough look) on the Chester Road in Streetly, near the Shell garage roundabout. Around 8:15 this morning. Anybody on here?

I was travelling the other way in a grey GT.

Re: was that you?

You can go days round here without seeing another Alfa, but yesterday, in the space of a few minutes waiting for a gap in traffic to open the drivers door I saw:

1 x grey Brera Spider
1 x blue Brera Spider
1 x hideous pearly green 156
1 x black 156
1 x red 147

You load of copycats!

Ex-streetly school pupils
