    What about a new thread listing sightings of F cars?

    I saw a red Mondial cabriolet yesterday on the M4, westbound at J27 at about 5:30pm. The reg ( I think) was HIL something. Anyone on here?

    I just spent the weekend in Milan. I was very dissappointed as I didn't see a single Ferrari! I was expecting one of the Fashion capitals of the world to be a bit more bling-bling.

    Saw a very nice 360M parked in B&Q in Cardiff yesterday. Made a change from all the Volvo estates.

    Also saw a 360 Spider in the city centre earlier this morning. See this one a lot. The guy just drives around Cardiff all the time and cant get above 3rd gear. Sounds the business though with a nice Tubi.

    I was out there for my birthday in January for a long weekend and only saw 2 F-cars. But the Milanoes certainly love their Porsche 996's, they were everywhere!

    I saw an absolutely stunning site head down Sloane Street towards Sloane square just as I was coming out of the Cartier shop:D.
    And that's not the red left hander 360 doing u turns in the middle of the busy road (reg M.. ENA)
    But on the back of a low loader was a red vintage Ferrari with BIG Scud badges in usual place on the front wings.
    It was an open top (no sign that it ever had a hood).
    Looked like a Califonian spider only i'm not sure as i'm not very good on vintage cars.
    It had little tail fins running down to the rear.
    Sorry guys about the description as I just saw it as it was passing.
    Enough to make my jaw drop though.

    I had to go back into Cartier for a sit down and a cup of coffee after that.

    :D:D:D:D

    The 306 with number plae M20ENA is always around there. As I can comfortably afford a few coffees, I often splash out at Oriels. It has a better view of the road than Cartier and I can engage in my favourite hobby of "count how many F-cars will go round the sloane sq" :)

    Saw a red 360 a couple of weeks ago at The Point in Bracknell - he was leaving as I was arriving in my Mondial.

    Would have caught up and said hi, but the window got jammed at the ticket barrier, and by the time I'd sorted out that mess and the barrier had gone up I could hear him blatting it down the dual carriageway :)

    Brave man, though - I thought I was chancing it leaving the Mondial outside Halfords in Bracknell <grin>

    Cheers,
    TOM

    I think the sad person in B&Q was me, I know I was there on Sunday...isn't everyone.
    The poser driving around Cardiff in 3rd is reason enough for anybody to give an Fcar driver the 'bird'. Probably his fathers.

    Robbo it was the B&Q in Pontprennau. The car had a distinctive number plate with some ingenious spacing of the letters!

    The guy in the 360 Spider ownes Williams Cars in Penarth Road I think. He used to have a 355 Spider and just crawls around the city centre. In the summer he goes through town, Mermaid Quay, Roath Park and any other place there will be lots of people and young fanny.

    If that's what he wants then fine but personally I think it's criminal to own a car like that and have the Brecon Beacons and some of the best driving roads in Britain half an hour from your door and not drive them.

    I will give you a wave if I see you again. Usually in a blue S1 Elise but will also soon have the use of the old man's silver 456 which he picks up next week.

    I remember seeing Ken Thornes son driving a blue spider up and down Penarth road at full pelt....just before the liquidators moved in.

    I was on my way to Brecon 7.45 Saturday morning, for a proper run etc, but needed to go to Bridgend first and spotted the ice on the verge along the A48. I'll try agin this weekend, weather permitting. The car was built for roads like these, not for St Mary Street with an arm out the window, shades on heading nodding with the beat etc.
    The 456 is a beautiful car, the thinking mans Fcar. Hope you enjoy it.
