Think this was my spot for the day at the show I was at yesterday.

Yes, this is the real deal, not a kit.

Even better, it drove 50 odd miles there, and home again. Sounded absolutely lovely as well as you would expect.

Friday afternoon at around 14:00 spotted a beige Riva Estate heading towards the town centre in MK. I was in the Skoda and got a massively enthusiastic display of flashing headlights and manic waving from the driver.

Anyone on here I wonder? Was on the opposite side of the dual carriageway so didn't get a very good look, but at a glance looked a tidy car.

From old to new I spotted a RHD Tesla in Edinburgh today. They were just launched in June with 5 cars so there can't be many about.

As it was near the new tram line, it made me wonder if there are any rules about equipping your car with a pantograph to steal power from tram lines?

There are a couple of Teslas in MK, not sure if LHD or RHD though. It is downright creepy seeing one catapult away from a standing start in near total silence...

Today's spot was a P plate dark bluey-green Niva 1.7i Hussar that was a carbon copy of mine even down to the driving lights and exhaust mods....Town Centre MK, about 4pm today...anyone on here? Looked like a mint Niva...

Niva spotted in Epping Forest this morning, red, possibly on a P plate - too busy thumb upping and grinning. A first for me to see a Niva in Essex since about 1994. I was the black Saab 900 Classic.

Just followed a red Lada Granta half way across Milton Keynes. Was last seen heading into the northbound M1.

What really caught my eye was that it had a KV13 plate, so obviously not just a visitor to the country...

Thought I was going mad when I first caught sight of it!
