I was never a fan of this car until seeing it the flesh today... Grey 812 Superfast at Teesside Park today with the better looking wheels on it too. Looked amazing and very brave of the owner to park it where he/she did.
Stupid bloody name though.

Totally agree, think they should have called it Stockton Park instead......

Both me












I wish!

They're great spots!

I know this is somewhat different but I keep seeing a very clean yellow Mk1 VW Polo buzzing around. Looks very cool in among regular modern blobs. We used to have one as a family car when I was a lad so brings back some nice memories. Anyone on here?

Also spotted a Navy with white stripe S2 Elise on A1 a couple of days ago. Looked great.

I saw Ford Racing Puma on the A1 the other day. Haven't seen one in years. Had slightly wacky yellow wheels but I'll overlook those because generally it looked great!

Not a "nice" car as such, but saw a yellow convertible fiat punto on the felling bypass the other day!

Must be rare as hens teeth!

Followed a Beautiful matt black lamboghini from testos to the centre of Newcastle on Thursday, so nice to see something that isn't a 320d on the drive in.

BTW, thanks for giving it the beans on the central motorway!

Foul day for it by then !

Spotted a lovely McLaren 570s (I think) in White on Scotswood road. I was in the C63 estate you followed out of town and up the hill. I was hoping you would re-overtake me, as the car sounded beautiful when I was behind it.

Commute this am:
Southbound on A19 at Ellerbeck - silver McLaren 540 or 570, don't know which as I can't tell them apart anyway
And an immaculate E60 550i around Crathorne heading northbound - lovely looking machine

Saw 4 police cars westbound on A69 around 8:30 yesterday am nr Throckley. Was odd as there was a sensible gap between 1st and second, but only about 2m between each of the last three. They could have been practicing a manoeuvre, but it actually looked more like some sort of tech test. Do police have ai following tech?

TVR Chimaera, pootling out of Sherburn at a very sedate pace, and heading towards Durham. Nice Blue/Green colour and no plate ending in 'SCA'.

Red Elise S2 near Anfield Plain yesterday. I was about to wave then realised I was in my BMW and would have looked like a nutter.

They regularly practise T Pac just there and then peel off at the next slip road to cut over to military road :-)
