Came back from Guernsey yesterday - saw a WB, a Black, a VR and a Tit grey. Pity they dont like nice cars on the island too much as most seemed to have fords...
No car - looking at a JDM RX-8 now.

Had a little play with a red, I think it was, around Kent on the M25 at 7.30 last night. I was in the black trying to get home for my tea! :twisted:

Screamer
you can down load OC cards from the forum.
when you spot another like minded dude or dudess parked up whip out wait for it a newly printed card with your forum name and put it under the wiper.

WE Need more members!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
which will then lead to more meets and runs and even hopefully more days :oops: sorry weekends like the one i have just been on prodrive :P :P wowwwwwww!!!!!!!!!

get carding and hopefully you to can bring some newbies to the club.

Passed a grey (LX05.....) on the inside lane of M3 towards London this afternoon, obviously lonely as soon left the inside lane to sit behind my VR for quite a few miles until we went in opposite directions at the M25

Yes. Got a heavy cold and finding it hard to concentrate on work so amused myself for a few minutes. Also did a couple on another thread.

Strato Blue on ITV last night.
It was pretty well kitted out and had a cool spoiler and wheels on it.

The sound though was more V8ish than Wankelish.

I think member Wolverine was driving it and had some teens in the back.

They also had mutant sort of powers and were listening to Boyzone or something... then they took the CD out and got a phone instead.

Cool :-)
I sold the RX-8, I got a Volvo.

What's wrong with me?! :-(

Was it just a prototype? It looked very much like the finished item. The stereo fascia was pretty much the one we have, and the rest too. Will probably review the clip frame by frame.
