Saw loads today

Post by reddragon77 » Thu Feb 08, 2007 10:39 pm

First one was a VR pulling out of a massive house between Chobham & Chertsey - almost opposite Foxhills (Stonehill road I think!) - some poor lady (not the Rex) ploughed into a ditch - I stopped and got out to check they were ok. The lady in the Rex checked if they were ok and then sped off - brave I thought considering the conditions. I wasn't in my VR - in the wife's Focus with skinny tyres :D

Next one was when I popped home to pick up my Vr at lunchtime (yes, I missed it). There was a Strato coming up the road into St Johns (side road near Winston Churchill School) - no reg but got a wave!

Third one was tonight, coming over the railway bridge that links Hook Heath and St Johns. It was a silver RX8, with a cracking spoiler and I reckon a Borla 'cause it sounded great. This guy must be in the club, surely?

And not one sighting of me... :( :lol:

I think I have seen the Silver one your on about as well... I think it has the AB Flug B/Kit on it and a Hymee exhaust. The owner is not on here (that I know of) but would definitely like to meet him.

Just to add to the list of sightings around Woking... Saw a BB or SB (it was dark!!) coming past Woking football club this evening on Westfield Avenue. I wasn't in my 8 but saw you anyway :wink:

The car looked really good - although it was dark and he was booting it!

Heading to London last weekend (9-11 Feb), saw a grey one on a petrol forecourt and shouted "Nice car!" at the owner as I was busy filling mine...

He looked nervous.

And saw a blue one in the garage when my cat was getting done - xx04 HPC in Border Cars :D
