Followed a WB KW05 on the A421 into Milton Keynes for about 10 miles, then a VR BP51 on the M1 between J36 and J38. No response from both, boring... :roll:

Winning Blue parked outside Elfordleigh Lesuire Centre today. Good to see rex drivers keeping fit. Would have been in mine, but it was raining and I had washed it the previous day, so was in the run-a-round.

Shopping there makes it possible to afford a Bentley?

Saw a filthy Phantom Blue evolve on the M6/M5 area yesterday heading South. Passed it, we both undertook some MLOC idiots, and then I think I went a different direction (heading for Cheltenham).

And I can't say much for the filthy other than "I thought it was grey" - my car looks awful after doing 800 miles in stormy foul weather over the new year period!

VR today (same as me :twisted: ) on the road coming out of Chobham. Sorry I didn't wave, clipped the branch on a bush as I sped past - was too busy swearing.

Luckily the car was ok [-o<

Saturday a T-grey going past the entrance to St George's hospital in Tooting at 20 past 4 - I didn't wave as I was walking and about 100 yards from my car at the time. Another t-grey in the car park (I was parked in the neighbouring road and saving the money I would have had to pay for the car park for more petrol :wink: ).

Guess there's a few greys in and around croydon. I passed one, waiting to come out of the petrol station by halfords, whitehorse lane / road or whatever. I didn't have time to wave, suspect he / she wouldn't have done anyway, about 3:30.

Yep - I've seen one going past my house a couple of times and one coming out of Cherry Orchard Road that I waved at as I went past ... I was ignored (or not seen :ninja: ).

Odd, the one in St George's hospital car park was in exactly the same place again Saturday afternoon. Either a frequent visitor - or somebody who can no longer afford to buy a ticket to get out of the car park :shock: having been there more than a couple of hours!

Had a WB follow me from ladymead in Guildford to the A3, down the A3 to Compton and then all the way to where I turned into Farncombe. I think it might have been Gabor but was unsure as my ability to read number plates backwards and at a distance is not that well practised... :D

It was indeed Gabor! I was just going to post a message about the same encounter when I saw yours!

Good exhaust tune, could hear it more than mine. :)

Misearable old day it was - wanted to give my new au-pair (just arrived on Friday) a glimpse of Guildford's surroundings.

Ended up me pointing out various REX's on the journey. One of them being yours.

Copper Red Evolve in B&Q car park last night. I wasn't in the RX8, I was driving my current shameful banger - £650worth of 1999 Astra TD estate (it's so basic, it doesn't even have central locking).

Saw a Blue '8 today on the A12 near Witham, heading towards Chelmsford.

Yes, I was the one in the Red '8 driving very slowly on the inside lane... :) I had the mis-fortune of being caught very low on fuel, so I was trying to conserve as much as possible! Had one eye on the fuel gauge, one looking out for a petrol station and everything else crossed in hope. Thankfully, found one not long after; the gauge was below the empty mark when I pulled into the forecourt! :shock:
