Thanks for organising it! Nice to see everyone! Don't our cars look great. I can't stop looking at my car. I love it. :)

And thanks to @GT86-Ian and @Leevsfortyone  for taking me for spins in your souped-up cars! Especially to Lee for actually letting me DRIVE yours. Wow. 🤩

On the way home, I had a really cool experience. I was in the Blackwall Tunnel, so going slow obviously, and I saw this Bentley in the wing mirror coming up next to me, so I looked over as it came up beside me to have a look. Well, there was little boy in the passenger's seat, he couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 (and not in a car seat, and apparantly up on his knees). I smiled at him and he looked at me briefly, but for the whole 4 or 5 seconds that the car was beside me, he was looking at my car. I mean intently checking it out. I just grinned and thought, yeah, kid, you got it. You're on the right track. You might be in a Bentley, but forget that cumbersome thing, my car is FUN. It was just like one of those wistful car commercials with the romantic music in which a little boy dreams of driving a race car. If I were a film director, I couldn't have produced a more perfect moment. It was amazing!

It does give you a Buzz when people check out your car.

Yes, it does. I get it at least once every time I go out. I'm sure people are wondering "What the hell is that?" and "Wow, that's cool" simultaneously. lol

I have several times had someone stick their head out of the window and ask "what is that" to which I cryptically reply "Subaru". The response is always "is that the new one then? Never seen one before" or similar!

It's all about getting together with your 86's and friends. Had the best day and thanks Vad for organising! 😁

So Louise,  when we meet up at the coffee house, are you going to climb in the boot again for a photo outside the shop entrance, for us?  I have just the image in mind!!

That's right Martin, that's my pocket rocket CR-Z. Always easy to find in carparks as it's usually the only one there! 😁

Great car showing how hybrid can be done well.  I had a Sprintex supercharger installed on mine.  Pocket rocket it was!

Agree, a great techy hybrid, always good fun for driving down the twisty Sussex country lanes. Would like a supercharger installed after I've removed the token back seats!!
