Black PZ (first one i've seen on the road (other than mine) on the A449 island approaching wolverhampton last night.
I was the other side of the island and waved but scared of kerbing it so didnt see if there was a response. Lady driver methinks.

Drag raced a Black 54 reg 192 outside Tesco's in South shields between the set of lights and the roundabout.

At first i thought he was just pulling away sharpish, but he kept on going, so I kept on going through first and Second and beat him on braking later at the next roundabout.

i might hasten to add we gave each other rye smile, as we looked in the mirror at the others left standing!!

Very childish I know, but hey what you going to do when someone challenges you?

Saw four silvers in South Wales yesterday. First was at 8:30am turning into the Cetlic Manor Resort as I was comming out, then at the traffic lights near Tredegar Park. Another parked outside Severnside house (I nearly parked in front of you but it was a bit tight) and finally passed one going way too slow on the M4 just before the bridge.

Nobody waved. :cry:

Friday, saw a black one with chrome wheels on the M6 - I've forgotten the cherished plate on it. It had a chrome filler flap, but no strakes!

Went from Carlisle to Kendal-ish, IIRC.

Saw a few around; I keep seeing one with a private plate like N111 K something in Birmingham around Erdington area :D

My gf spotted a blue RX8 with stripes (I'm assuming J12TSE?) in Woolston just after 3:15 today.

Apparently I should get some similar on mine.. ;)

Got a friendly flash on the A41 on the edge of Aylesbury from another Strato around 2.45pm today. Always cheers me up, that sort of thing!
ok, seems to be important: 190, Strato Blue, black leather. 29/03/06. Someone keeps stealing my fuel...
