Copper red (right colour? the browny looking one) Evolve at Oulton Park on Sunday morning. No card (didn't have one with me),but first time I've seen an Evolve in the flesh, so if you saw anyone snooping around it no need to worry 'twas only me being nosey. :)

I was too far back to get a plate

*M06 KNK, Stratos on the back of a low loader this morning near Knutsford. Hope it's someones RX8-to-be rather than a problem on a pretty new car! Looked nice and shiny and the pipes were clean too, so I'm guessing its a new one. If it's yours, enjoy!

Yesterday - Tit Grey '04 plate with black viper stripes and some other goodies. Regent Centre, Gosforth.

If its anyone here - your stripes would look better if they were closer together, IMHO ;)

Overall, nice look to the car, tho.

Black with a US Hoop Spoiler and some silver badge below your Mazda logo on the boot. You were on the M4 driving West towards Reading around 10am this morning. I was the Lotus Elise that shot past you on the outside lane...

I'm a busy man, places to go, people to see. Haven't got time to sit in the middle lane admiring cars that I used to own. It was the same when I had an RX-8.

I'll be the last person to slag off an RX-8 coz I still think there fab, and probably will own another one in the future.

Just returned from a pleasantly hot week in Norfolk. During the course of the 300-odd miles travelled, only two RX/8s were spotted :
1. Monday 26th - titanium grey AJ06--- on the Norwich by-pass;
2. Wed 28th - velocity red AK04--- entering Caistor-on-sea.
Anyone on here ?

Saw a black driven by a man around 1130 ish this morning sat at the temporary traffic lights on Lower Road near Speke Boulevard,as I came through them I gave him a wave and a smile and I could see him thinking 'do I know her?' Didn't get even a smile back though :(

I was driving very 'sedately' as I'd just been to collect my new kitten from the RSPCA round the corner and didn't want him to experience the handling capability of the 8 on the back lanes, in case I had to clear up the mess afterwards :shock:

Silver on various days this week parked at Bridlington Harbour.

Followed a Titanium on the M62/M18 yesterday morning. Driven by a dark hair lady with a lowered front plate. She headed towards Sheffield as I went south.

I was in stealth mode in a hired Vectra.

Sorry Paul,
Should have recognised it as yours from a previous meet, or should have at least checked the members' list.
Got carried away with my enthusiasm when I thought "no owners club de-cals": there are several new owners in Crawley who haven't yet joined our brotherhood.
Nice and clean, by the way. =D>

You should see mine ! Far worse.
What about the increase in car park fees ? - now £1-90 minimum, and no change given. The dirty b*st*rds !
