Dark silver/grey Ferrari FF on Dean Street, Newcastle, last night. A couple of young chaps enjoying its presence and taking plenty of photos. Lovely looking car.

Spotted today on the southbound A1 at Durham at 1.15pm-ish, a dark blue Triumph Spitfire IV, with, what looked like, a black lab in the passenger seat!

A huge squad of Aston Martins in Morpeth today. Must’ve been over a million bucks worth.

All doing about 25mph in a 30 and (what seemed like) trying hard not to make any noise at all.

Class in a glass!

Yep it was me. Took it to Snetterton for the weekend so my dad could go out on track as I was racing the 355 Challenge car. Epic weekend.

.

The reg is a give away as too old, plus no visible gearbox under the plate as the engine remains transverse. Other than that it’s a good match when I’ve parked next to a real one.

Was racing this:




A 3rd and two 2nd places so a good weekend all in.

I was a good couple of hundred yards back from this so couldn't say for certain but a green D-Type Jag (replica I assume?), A1 N-bound coming off at Westerhope exit. Traffic stopped me from having a proper gawp!

I see a yellow S1 Elise on the A19 southbound as I’m travelling northbound in my LRG Evora 410 and even noticed him in tome enough to give a quick acknowledgement!

No, I could not see the VRM,as I was travelling on the Northbound carriageway and could only see that there was no visible gearbox in my rear view mirror, as we past each other.

I overtook KITT the other day on the spine road. Full replica by the looks of it, from the pilot steering wheel to the red heartbeat light. I used to see one on the way into Newcastle but not seen it in a few years. If it's the same one, must still be in the area.

Driving past Wynyard today, I was passed by a rather wonderful Mustang. From our brief encounter, it was black with a stripe, and I think it may have been a classic 500 style ( not up to speed with Mustangs). Looked great in my rear view mirror, and he gave me a very friendly 'toot' on the horn as he went past. Once around the roundabout he gave it some throttle and I could hear it in all its glory. ears

Thank you sir. It was a delight. cool

Anyone know the car ??
