that was me

Stuart, it all fits. I think that must have been you. You were going round the roundabout into Whitewater Rise. I was waiting at the end of Mullin's Lane. If it was me it was a red 6 with standard wheels and private plates.

PM me if you're in the area again and we could meet up.

regards,

hooray I've been spotted

Nice to meet you too Stu.

If you're meeting up any time soon let me know and I'll try and wander up.

Alternatively there is a good burger bar in Hythe which sort of makes up for the total lack of any decent pubs.

regards,

Ian C

I did it!!! Finally spotted another , and it was about 1/2 a mile from my house. I was going to get my tracking done this afternoon and there it was, coming towards me. A nice looking shiny red one on an M plate.

I knew I couldn't be alone, there had to be another somewhere

Spotted three - yes three MX6s today.

Two reds, one with a couple of youngish guys in and a "MAZxxxx" plate (IanFC?). The other had an older chap who didn't acknowledge the flash of lights. Both near Branksome.

And I was just about to turn into my road when I spotted a white 6 with very tinted windows coming the other way. I waved, but couldn't see if they/he/she acknowledged 'cos the windows were so dark! I know it wasn't Stu because I texted him to see if he was in the area.

It would have been 4, but Marty was out when I called earlier (now worries Marty, I was just in that area).

not me this time

I'm afraid I'm not MAZxxxx so that 6 wasn't me.

But I'll keep looking.

smart car versus MX-6

Jase,

I'm assuming, in order to smoke the 6, the Smart car from which your photograph was taken was the same one featured in the For Sale section of this site which could do 0-60 in 2.3 seconds.

regards,

Well, I shan't be round for a bit Marty. Just blown my engine up

Looks like I won't be making it to Japfest after all.

Just going through the threads.. and was wondering why you were going to miss Japfest..

Sorry to hear this Ken..

Choices time..

fix it
buy another, or a scrapper with a good engine (KL-ZE prefered)
explain to Lin what a good investment an RX-7 or RX-8 would make, and the 12 saving on Japfest would go nicely towards it..
