Saw my first yellow on the road today, private plate J* YHL. It was parked up at the Cosford airshow, and then I caught up with you on the M54 just before Cannock, where we both turned off. Gave you the thumbs up out of the window as we went our separate ways on the roundabout. Didn't see if you acknowledged or not.

WB starting EO54 (I think) this evening driving along the A26 through Lewes.
I first I thought it might have been Countzero but didn't look like him as I shot passed when they were turning off.

Black parked next to ladybower reservoir (Bamford/Derbyshire). I was on my way up to Derwent - showing the parents around.

on the way back home, wife passed an 06 plate red - the guy seemed in no hurry and was driving sedately all along ;)

53 reg S/S parked up in Long Melford on Sunday lunchtime.

Still quite rare around Suffolk/N. Essex/Cambridgeshire. I've done about 800 miles in the last week and only seen about 4 8s on my travels.

Unsurprisingly loads of Mx-5s were out over the weekend, incl. one lady with the Hardtop still on....v. strange :?

Black RX8 on the A68 turning towards Hawick. Didn't catch the registration. I've seen a black one a few times around the borders now, so I'm wondering if it's a resident.

I was driving the Sera.

Was that Harrizone I saw near Shopland Hall about 2.30 today? We passed at some speed on a blindish corner and all I managed was a quick wave at a Winning blue with a body kit - not time to snatch a look at the reg.
There once was a man from Essex,
Who was potty over Mazda RXs.
He ordered an 8,
and had to wait,
But when it arrived, said "tis better than sex is".

Two Titaniums in Edinburgh today; one on Cameron Toll looked like it was trying to change lanes (I beeped, but didn't see it appear so perhaps it was just slightly over the white line) and one going down St. Mary's Street (NL04 xxx) which I flashed, but didn't respond.

Just been followed along the A507 by a 55 plate 230 tit with front skirt and the reg plate raised up on the front.

Front plate looked really good - think I might have removed the badge however and put it a tiny bit higher. It has given me an idea as it would also cover some stone chips I have there. :-k

If it's anyone on here did you see the prat who was comming towards me on the last bit of road before I turned off to Baldock? Right in the middle of the road for no reason and then he flashes me because I'm overtaking! :evil:

If it was mine, my son was grabbing a sneak drive of it whilst we were on holiday, only got back today since 10th. He just wouldn't drive it as it frightens him too much, or rather I do when giving him a lift anywhere. :D
Now a distant memory unfortunately.
