Yesterday morning I saw (heard before I saw.....awesome) a Gallardo Spyder LP570 Performante at the BP garage Gemini, Warrington. Then this morning followed the same car down Cromwell Av. I checked as soon as I got in if it is a Vanrooyen car and sure enough they have one in. Definite bonus points for driving style as well......thumbup

Was there a run out near Chelford last night? Sounded like a load of cars razzing up the road between Chelford and Macc/Knutsford around 10:30 last night.

I heard the same in Wilmslow when I was sat in bed reading my book!

A few nice spots today in Southport:

White Citroen 2CV parked up on the retail park opposite Dunelm Mill.

Lovely immaculate MG Midget with top down parked near VUE Cinema; wasn't sure at first glance whether a Midget or Sprite, but the MG badge on the grill gave it away:


Triumph Stag seen heading past Silcocks amusements:

Saw two early 911s yesterday in the Nantwich area, a silver 2.4 911T I've seen before and a dark green (or possibly blue) one, both LHD. And a green 914 this afternoon heading towards the M6 J16.

Could be me. Last drive before the engine comes out!

Just spotted an Audi Quattro Rally replica (white/yellow) heading through Helsby towards Frodsham. Very few cars stop me in my tracks these days (and I am a long way from being an Audi fan) but that looked utterly awesome on the road and made me feel a bit inadequate (and I was driving an Esprit). Also saw a Red Sunbeam Alpine heading towards Liverpool on the M53 this morning which was a rather different sight on the road.

Off to pick up my lad from school in the Barchetta on the A59 and a beautiful black Testarossa passed me. Gave each other a flash of the lights and a wave! Don't see many of them around up here!!

If it was, it certainly seemed to pull away quite well just before you turned off the A51.

There was a red Testarossa parked up in Clitheroe last Saturday too. Fantastic looking thing, possibly my favourite Ferrari.

Spotted this Triumph TR4 (or TR5) parked up in Horwich this afternoon. A few minutes before saw it heading through Horwich along Chorley New Rd. Lovely looking thing, nice to see something like this on a grey saturday.

Spotted an E-Type Jag fixed-head coupe on the back of a small flat bed trailer this afternoon on Tarbock Island between Huyton and Whiston, and then seen heading onto the M62 Manc bound. Looked like a series 1 model, and appeared to be in a restoration state.

Lamborghini Aventador, white with red highlights in Thornton Hough a little while ago. The sound they make is completely nuts even when tootling around.
