    It was a shiny black Spider S4 German registration. I at once thought of Dom (SS4). I'm at the return trip home on a round road trip to Sicily in the Fiat Bravo (alas the Spider S2 is not suited for such a trip, to hot in sunshine, 40 degree C, uncomfortable for all day driving and friend flew...
