Re: South West - 17/12/2005 05:09

I was there yesterday and I didn't see you either!!

Picked up my car from Cloverleaf after a service (turbo next!)
As for Gloucester being a black hole I'll let you decide.

Downend, Bristol tonight in the dark, I thought I saw a coupe going the other way with two white stripes over bonnet, roof & boot. Hard to tell with converging speed at 80mph. Anyone on here own/seen it?

In my defence, you were behind a van that seemed to have stuck its rear bumper to your front bumper. Only had a quick look as I sped past in my works diesel Astra.

It is works honest

I was on the way to Bristol for a meeting. Only go that way about once a month. If I see you again I will give you a wave.

A sprint blue 20VT parked up near Exeter St. David's railway station, a murple one at a tyre depot in Exeter (always parked there, owner works there),a broom Yellow 16VT at the Steampacket pub in Totnes and then a rosso red 16v coming out of Exeter as I was driving in.

Re: South West - 17/06/2006 03:18

ooh I'm in bournemouth and I have a Ink black/blue 20vt. I've flashed at a couple and get some fairly blank looks. I nice policeman spotted me in Britford on the 338 just outside Salisbury doing 42 in a 30. Nice man took a picture and sent it too me with some points. I wrote back and asked how many i needed for a glass tumbler but they didn't laugh. I wish I'd seen him i could have smiled and said cheese.

I see a pork'ncheeso blue coupe with lady driver often around downton on my epic commute to work. I spotted a few more round poole recently too. I'm most likely to be seen in Tesco tower Park, Asda Bournemouth or in one of many petrol stations on the A338 between Poole (Via Penn Hill)and Collingbourne Ducis 1/2 hour north of Salisbury where I work. Theres a proper red one in Collingboure (anyone on here?) and an unloved silver blue one in a pub car park in Collingbourne Kingston. They are the two I see most, both 20VT's. There are also a 2 x red 16v's (I think) in the Tidworth area. One I see in the petrol station and the other in the Lesuire centre carpark when I swim at lunch times. I did chat with the guy in the garage once but he never flashes or waves anymore. I obviously made an impression Perhaps he's the grandad of someone on here :)

For the record, if you do see my car, I didn't knacker the wheels, the clown who owned it before me did. Also if you do flash, try and make sure it's me and not my girlfriend driving. If it's her she'll think you are harrasing her and will most probably swear at you and/or crash into you. Bless, she really doesn't understand. lol see some of you around?

Re: South West - 19/06/2006 02:28

not me chief. my car was in the process of being bolted back together after a manifold out. (If you check out my date of birth I'm a bit old for cruising well almost ) One of my side badges just fell off too so the car could look better. I think my car is ink black. I've seen a graphite black but mine is more Really really really dark blue. I looked at a Dark blue before i bought this but although it was nearly navy blue, it still wasn't as dark as mine.

I'll certainly look out for you, which is probably a good idea if you are in the habit of jumping out in front of people :):):D

Thanx Pheonixbird! - I might just wonder round one lunchtime.

The Silver Coup is up for sale - its done 127k but no mention of a 2nd cambelt change though. Still see a Speed Blue 20VTurbo most mornings on the A37 but heading out of town.

Can you recommend any Coupe friendly garages in the area? I need a new thermostat, the coil packs replaced and 4 new tyres. If not i may just have a day off and taking it to Alfanet in Bristol.

Thanks

Very nice ink black 20V turbo followed me up the road from Trowbridge town centre towards West Ashton traffic lights, we both turned right towards the Longs Arms roundabout where he turned left for Westbury, and I turned right for Trowbridge. We exchanged waves, if we had had more time I would have stopped and had a chat.

Anybody on here?

Went to Falmouth last weekend - going home to North Wales on the Sunday, saw two coupes - including an R-plated one being driven between Truro & Falmouth, and a red N plater on the A39 going from the A30 to Truro. Waved, but no response. I was in the red 20V T with the private plate.

Been a good day for coup spotting today, saw a red 20v turbo parked up in the top fuel station in Bromyard, and a few minuets later another red turbo went up Bromyard high street.
They weren't the same one as the fuel station was locked up for the night and it was still in the same place on the home.

Didnt wave as I was in the company Mini, which was surreal having so many Mini owners wave at me (and I totally forgot that I was driving one).

Ironic really, as most of the time when Im in the Coupe, I rarely get a return wave or a flash....

Was 2 cars back and one lane over and beeped but didnt notice, driver had a grey woolly hat on.

The wheels were nice and i want to know what they are. Either someone has found a set of 17's that look noce and fit over the front calipers, or its a non turbo, with turbo badges on.

Didn;t get to see if it had brembos or not so dont know.

Hi rich, nice to get a reply. There does seem to be alot of coops around there. Last friday (18th) i saw a yellow coop with spoiler and skirts coming out of entrance of HBOS financial services - reg R617???. Looked nice. 2 mins later i saw dark red r-reg parked in a garage near clevedon school on the road to portishead. Both at about 8.15 am. Its bloody coop crazy round there!!! \:\)

Think I saw her last night on the A36 in Woolverton - sprint blue R reg with tan leather, blonde lady behind the wheel.

Anyone recommend anywhere to mend them locally?

Re: South West - 25/06/2007 14:41

I use S+H Motors in Poole as my local, by all accounts they're great with standard items. I've heard of a complaint regarding the fitting of non standard parts tho.

I've never had any problems and persoanlly would recommend them. However alot of people go the extra distance and goto Rog @ Powerfiat in Basildon.

I also use the South Central spotting section for my Bournemouth spots so keep an eye out on there for me.

Thanks for the advice I'll check out S&H at Poole as soon as I can wrestle it back from the Mrs! I'm hopeful it's just leads/plugs but it suddenly developed a misfire at 2.5k, being an idiot I tried revving through it (throw back to biking days) Didn't seem to like it! Anyhow I get no sense that it's about to expire at any moment.
For the record it's usually the dirtiest green 16v turbo in Dorset, give us a wave, or whatever the etiquette is around here!

I would guess it was you I saw opposite the Wells petrol station a while back? Apologies for my delayed wave but I was in shock from immediately before, seeing your N-reg elec blue coop lady driving into Tescos as I pulled out (both our cars looking the same & both us ladies also looking v similar \:o ) I thought I had entered into a parallel universe!!!

There's also an n-reg yellow one around who's owner I've subsequently become friends with.

Oh yeah, and ANOTHER electric blue one (with a rear spoiler) often parks in Southover. Common as muck coops are in Wells!

Immaculate looking 16v n/a in Tiverton the last couple of days - rare to see them looking that clean. Oh but BTW, the 'disabled' badge doesn't give you the right to park on the pavement and force everyone to walk in front of the traffic in the road to get past your (rather nice) blinking car! Other than that, keep up the good work.

Hi Paul I live out in ilchester & travel to & from yeovil every day, also up & down the area as I am a computer engineer, Ilminster, Taunton, Dorchester etc
Mostly travel in my spinty as the LE has been having a lot of work done to it (Apollo Motors & Performance 3000), bought it a cat D repaired, "note" repair my arse, but while I was at it thought I'd get the lot done

Cant say that I have seen you either but if I do you will always get a wave or a flash of my lights (is yeivil in a black hole, lol), seen a nana, the snotty mentioned, another sprinty another LE, no he doesnt want to know either, even walk over to him one day when he was over Refinish Systems, muttered at me, got in his car & drove off, lol, oh just remembered there is a guy who works in the Seat Garage on Lynx, he has a red 16v, asked me if I had any spare wheels once

You've certainly seen alot more coops in Yeovil than me \:\) Only lived there around 6 months.

Sounds like the LE is going to be in tip-top condition once its finished... Glad you mentioned Performance 3000, was in there the other day and I did see a coop parked out side , guy said the cam belt was being done \:\? Not sure if it was yours of not tho?

I will def keep my eye out for the LE and the sprinty in Yeovil \:D

Hi Paul
Yeah probably was mine, didnt realise they did them there, bit more than Alfanet Bristol & the likes but not too bad
My mate John at Apollo was chatting with Mike at 3000 & he asked why I was going to Bristol to get it done, so I gave him a bell, said they hadnt done one for ages but they knew how to do it without engine out think Mikes Dad use to be a Fiat & Coupe specialist

must say that your coupe always looks a very tidy example when i drive past.

when i left the card i thought it might get blown off by the wind, but at the same time thought id get some strange looks if i started standing by, and attaching things to, a car, similar to my own for too long.... \:D


welcome to the forum / club, hope you find it useful \:\)
oh- may well have been me you saw at the roundabout the other day. though my girlfriend no longer lives up there (moved out last week) so i doubt i'll drive past that often now



Hi jase- was me and the girlfriend you saw at about 1.35 in the sprinty, having a day out, though im often down your way, but usually in a 3 1/2 ton iveco box van - strangley enough its not nearly so much fun!

nice to get a wave from a fellow fccuker!

I own a Sprint Blue in Torbay but I recently saw someone with the same colour and P plate as mine heading towards brixham yesterday (EDIT - just notice it's member owl10) . I wasn't driving it today though \:\) and I know a green one is in Brixham from time to time too.

not sure if this is in the right region post, my geography is rubbish!
Saw a busted up sprinty on the back of a flatbed going through Leigh Sinton in Herefordshire on saturday, any of the breakers on here? Joe?
Then saw another sprinty with 'C20 UPE' numberplate or something along those lines on the backroads to Malvern. Wasn't in my coupe, the mrs' ka instead \:\)

Mods please feel free to move to correct post if i'm wrong :-)

Anyway sprint blue is one of the best colours for the Fiat Coupe and most of Torbay owners seem to agree

Resto projects always sound great to begin with...

It's stuck in my garage at the moment- i'm half way through putting the engine & box back in after the rebuild.

Started out as a rolling resto, but soon developed into a total restoration.

Goes like stink though (for a classic)- you really feel the speed they can pull in them- it's 36 years old & has poppodum brake discs, but it'll still pull over 120mph (on a runway-obviously!)

Long way of completion at the mo!


Up for a local meet & drive if anyone is interested, I posted up some interest in the Social section, maybe & drive over to Torpoint & on the Mt. Edgecombe for a pint???


Anyway, spotted a lovely Met. Blue 20v Turbo (could have been a plus) in Heybrook Bay this morning. Anyone on here?

Noooooooo. This car was for sale (was on piston heads and the bay IIRC), but the owner at the time was a PR!CK. Drove like a w@nker in built up area's, windows open with music blaring out. He used to work just up the road from my house, so people thought it was me being a knob. That said - might be a new owner now. But that car did nowt for our reputation!!

Don't know about the guy in person but I have bumped into him at the filling station a few times. Not spoken to him about his car though.


On a separate issue, I was doing the speed limit on the way home \:D & my O/S/F wheel arch cover decided to wrap itself around the wheel at speed.
Quite scary to begin with as it sounded quite horrific & I thought I had a blow out!

The wife was giving it beans 'n all, as you can imagine as we missed 45mins XFactor (everyones a winner!)

So does anyone have a spare plastic wheel arch cover they could donate for some beer tokens?

Bit peevedat the mo as it's left the oil cooler slightly exposed to stone chips.

Can anyone help? Cheers, Ben.

scared the hell out of me too, it's made a right mess- black burnt plastic everywhere & has bent back the lip on the smaller wing under the bonnet.
Looks like most of it will wash off, and the rest with a little gentle persuasion.

I just had the cambelt done so i'm wondering if it was not put back on properly or it was the wind that tore it off.

Hey ho, hopefull have that sorted now with a breaker in the hagling section.

This site is ace for looking after your Coupe on the cheap!

Mine's got a black interior, but it was certainly well in need of a wash! Actually come to think of it I may have been in the Mayflower street car park, so might have been someone elses.

I know this will probably be frowned upon for putting this in here, but I think it would suit someone local.

I want to put my Coupe back to standard- so I have on offer a Bailey DV, K&N cone filter & a Peco BB4. I have all reciepts/invoices for the items fitted.

I don't want money for it- just the equivalent standard parts to replace them.

I.e. Air box, standard DV & a rear box- not really fussed as they are cheap enough new (must check on that though!)

Send me a PM if your interested...

Cheers,

Clear white.

I wanted pearl white but when I mentioned how I loved the brightness and how much in your face the clear white actually is, they pointed out to me that the pearl will dull the white a little so I had a change of heart!

I also got the the lights tinted red a tiny bit to get them standing out more and the dash is now cherry red. I was going to go with a white dash but it didn't look right when I saw a picture from a website. front lights are also lacquered and another back box I got from here will also be fitted to the car.

Thanks. I saw one on a website ages ago and planned to do it to my car. So when I got the chance, I did it. It's strange because I think it makes the car looks lower in my opinion.

Next step is 30mm hubcentric's (which I currently have waiting to be put on) and thinking about spraying the wheels in a grey colour.

I plan to keep the car with no kit on it but if I did then it would have to be a wide kit or a one off build (nothing over the top or chavy) I see more coupe's with kits than without so again it would need to be different.


I thought the colour of your car looked good as it's unusual to see them in that colour. I don't think i've ever seen another one.

I see the Yellow one nearly every day on the way to work- opposite the Mini garage.


The Silver Coupe was mine!

We were heading out to Mount Batten to take some sales pictures- anyone want a well looked after 20vt?

In that case probably not you, whoever it was pulled over in Brixton and I said a very quick hello as I shot past. Felt very guilty about not stopping for a chat but was in a bit of a rush. It was a silver/metalic grey Coupe on a P plate. exalfa was this you?

There does seem to be noticeably more Coupes around these parts just recently, are they migrating south for the summer?

sprint blue, in a lay by on the A370 long ashton by pass, complete with flashers on and RAC present, at about 13.00 yesterday.

as i went past im sure this reg plate is from a prominent forum members car, wont say who though! you know if it was you! tongue Bit far from home? or seeing a well known bristol tuner?

Would have stopped, but i was in the outside lane doing about 80 mph on the bike when i saw the coupe, and the lay by is in one of those positions where its hard to pull in and out at the best of times. Not exactly anywhere to turn round there either, only get back to you with a 6 mile detour. As the RAC were there thought you'd be ok! smile

Managed to get a quick beep beep in, although thinking about it after i pressed the horn, as i wasnt in the coupe you probably just thought it was someone taking the piss!

Not so much a recent 'spot' but:

A mate of mine used to live in Gosport, near Southampton, and says that he was having a drive-past of his old house, for old times sake, and someone in his apartment block now has a Burgundy Coupe.

Anyone on here?

I often see a green (newer R?) 20vt on the same stretch. There's quite a few around Yeovil, including a blk one with so many bits on it's hard to see it's a coupe.

Next while sitting outside the Longs Arms between Trowbridge and Westbury I saw two (!!) sprinties, one with the tan leather interior, and one not.

I rented a house in Falmouth and spotted two coupes regularly parked on the road by the Greenbank hotel.
A yellow 16vt ****RUU
and a S reg sprint blue 20vt.

Flashed and waved at a N reg speed red just outside town but I was in a silver VW T5 kombi so must have seemed a bit strange.

All the coupes seemed clean and well looked after.

Hi chrisw66
The black one is an Inky 20vt6 2000 X reg and belongs to a neighbour I'd never spoken to until he saw me playing with my newly acquired Speed Rosso 20vt6 2000 V reg. Turns out we'd gone out and bought our first coops at the same time.

He bought his for his wife! (I've heard that one before) and his (her) inky is a very nice low miler (about 68K from memory) with tan or cream leather I think.

Mine, sadly, is more tired with 137K, but seems mechanically fairly good.

As if that wasn't enough, I went out and bought a quite ropey metallic wine (don't know the proper name for the colour) 20vt Plus. (139K 1999 V reg) Still has all the proper Plus bits, albeit the front seats need some serious attention.

Was at Drive-In Auto-Care in Newton Abbot today (now yesterday) with my own Speed Red 20VT6 up on the ramps trying to isolate suspected wheel bearing issue and whilst waiting I saw an 'S' reg Speed Red 20VT sat outside one of the other units. Turns out the owner has had it for years and loves it (wouldn't expect anything less) and it looked quite tidy.

Would normally take mine to Joe at CC, but vibration has got so bad I was concerned bearing might collapse on the way to Hereford. Turns out it is the offside front bearing, so I'll have to see if Joe can get me one and I'll let Drive-In fit it.

Add the 16V 'N' reg I saw in Newton Abbot a while back and alex1982's and that makes at least 4 Speed Reds in Devon.

Spotted my first coupe after returning to the fold. Saw a silver coupe by the turning into the University of West of England on the MOD ring road off M32 last Monday morning. I was in an inky 20vt, waved but driver didn't spot me. Haven't spotted any of the Bristol coupes yet, interesting how rare the coupe has become!

Hi woodvurm,

Not been driving the coupe much lately as front wheel bearing was close to failing. Now it's sorted I'll be using it more.

Re: South West - 29/06/2013 12:32

Don't see many Coupés on the road in my part of Devon, so was in Newton Abbot today when I saw a Speed Red 20VT6 in front of me. Was in my Broomy Plus and followed it into a car park and as we parked up I saw a Sprinty 20VT parked in the road.

Imagine my surprise though, when following the red one I recognised the number plate. Yes, it was my first Coupé; the one I had put in as p/ex for my current yellow one. Met the new owner Allan, AKA Lost55 on here; nice guy and had a Coupé chat for a while. The Sprinty of course, was also Allan's and I believe from his comments elsewhere, that he also has a silver one, so he's also a three Coupé owner. It's a madness.

So I had sold the car to JBT up near Leicester and Allan had gone up there to buy it and bring it back to within 5 miles of me. Small world as they say.

Interesting to hear about the inky. I nearly bid on that but at the time couldnt justify getting another.

So if I do get tempted again I'll let you know and you can do the same. That way we wont end up in a bidding war!!!!

I know you'll say you wont buy another, but 3's an odd number and we cant be having that smile

Turns out it's a nice 16VT with LE skirts, but no lips.

Is it someone on here and do you also live in Teignmouth?

Hi, they're mine. The yellow one's a plus. The blue one (ink black according to Fiat) is actually a late 20VT 6 speeder from 2000, so it has a lot of plus bits, but isn't a plus.

When did you notice them and what were you doing in Teignmouth?

There's a dedicated Coupe Projects section here where you are welcome to describe this in as much detail as you like!

With pics, of course.... cool

If you'd like to have comments as well you should start a Discussion Thread in the same section too smile

Sort of a champagne-gold/silvery Coop on A37 heading to Dorchester on Friday 25th Oct, at around 13:30.
Followed it from Yeovil, and tried to catch up with it, but traffic lights prevented me!! frown

Could have been me, certainly on that road, not sure about the colour though, maybe it was the mud making the silver look gold!

Well in my defence regarding colour, you were always just that little too far away to get a good look, so if you say silver, I'll believe you!

If it was you, you were behind a tanker for most of the early part of the A37 out of Yeovil. After I got rid of the traffic lights, I was hoping to take advantage of your hold up, but too many cars between us!

Ah well.

Hi Ben.

Really sorry for late reply. It went to my junk mail, which is quite usual for FCCuk for obvious reasons! I should look at it more regularly.

Where are you, in Southampton, please?
