A 300 drove past my house today!!! I think it was a 360, it was white, 3 door and had a GLT spoiler on but that never means alot and the rest didnt look GLT like. Whose holidaying around Aberystwyth?? I didnt get the full reg but it was F plated.

Shame mine wasnt parked in its usual spot which is far more obvious from the road!

Spotted! Volvo 360 with roof rack/lights and large radio ariel, in Durham last week.

I was driving a black S70 around the roundabout on Gilesgate bank (junction between A181/A690/Gilesgate), too surprised to wave

I'm guessing..........Nimminz??

Black 5dr 360 GLT with about seven people inside, and silver/grey 5dr 340 with people being dragged out of it.
All, along with a stolen Saph Cossie, naughty S1 RS Turbo, and mk4 XR3i, spotted on a surprisingly decent episode of Police Camera Action, earlier on.

It even featured 'that' Vectra, caning it through Durham. :lol:

I really only looked at this thread yesterday after a mere 9 years on the forum. With only an alleged 800 of these cars still on the road and having not seen one for literally months (apart from mine, of course), I thought I'd check out a few I have seen around here in the last year or so. Now I do know I have seen a nice white 340 smoking around Tolworth so I had a nose around the back-streets in said area of South London and came across this....

... I thought I was hallucinating, but a look at streetview (see above) confirms I am not. Is that anyone on here? If it is I hope I am not giving away too much privacy-wise and I can take this off if it offends the owner(s). I'm sure those bags are full of cocaine.

I might 'card' it and see what happens, or duck.
