Saw an ink black coupe reg 666 on the A46? We were driving up to Sheffield also in an ink black reg GOK. You followed then passed and went off nextjunction. I was looking at the old citroens we were passing. Maybe ive been spoilt by having an old vw but I did think you could have waved or cracked a smile!

Probably mine - I was there in it last Saturday

Sadly, its not quite as nice when you get up close - the front bumper was blasted by gravel from tailing a Nissan GTR at an airfield trackday last year - needs paint.... frown

Hi McMike smile

My mistake! My partner was driving with my dad in the front so I was in the back, admiring the Citroens! I only saw you when she said look what's behind us. You are the first Coupe driver Ive seen since dad gave me the coupe. smile
Not sure if she had her glasses on so may forgive not noticing you wave.
I've had to have a bit of a break from driving the Fiat as my other cars are a Citroen C15 and a VW T2 and when I get on the mway in the Fiat I put my foot flat down like in the others smile. Im a bit concerned about points at the moment!!!

Yay, saw coup in Brum today.

On the A4540 Ladywood Middleway pulling out from the island about 1pm.
It was in immaculate yellow with black multi-spoke wheels. It really was stunning.
I didn't catch what type it was, it was too shiny!

That was mine....

In for a gearbox rebuild after the whining noise in 6th started to get louder. After a total bill running into four figures (I replaced the clutch while the box was off and had a service as well), the gearbox still whines....

P reg 20v n/a broomy parked in Kyrle street car park at lunch time.

Original dealer plates.
Dirty but rust free on top - thought it a bit cheeky to get underneath!
Tidy cloth interior and just 53k on the clock.
Made me late back to work!
