On the way home from work today in slow moving traffic and a S1 rocked up alongside me and beeped his horn ( steady on Nigel) so we went side by side for a bit chatting with the windows down :D Have to say I enjoyed that

If I could afford to keep it and get a 25th Anni MX5 I would all day long but I can't do both and have a life so it will have to go unfortunately but on the flip side I passed two 5's on the way home aswell and I was like yep I could see myself in one of those ;)

Ranjan,
As a substitute we visited the Warner Bros studios which was good and thought about what we were “missing”
I don’t miss finance and forecasting meetings!

On leaving Lido di Jesolo (Venice) the airport bus went by a Tit Grey RX8 parked up in front of a house.
Speedhunters sun-strip and much wang-age. No time to get phone out to take pic.

Hadn't seen one in the 10 days I'd been there.

Three RX8s today, and an added bonus, 30th Anniversary MX-5

Also 3 bay-window campers, which are always a welcome sight

My colleague drove behind a black 07 plate down Southampton Road in Salisbury, thought it was me. So apologies if anyone was confused by a light blue beetle flashing their lights at them.
