Ya, there was a yellow one alright. Think it was in the dublin area, it was used to advertise a car wash as far as i can remember. Good chance it's the same one, just registered and resprayed for new advertisments.

I keep seeing a green mini that has white arches on a regular basis somewhere along the N11 around Wicklow, each time I see it I try to give a flash and a wave but obviously with me being in the Focus they don't flash back

To the other 99 BRG sportpack in Santry on friday,

what you didn't see was the fella at the bus stop that watched me pull up, then saw you go past and then had to walk over to where I parked to make sure he wasn't seeing things the first time......Biggest and most obvious double take I've ever seen...... Made me laugh.

Saw a black and white cooper (91 d) i think, in my rear view mirror coming down Kylemore Road onto the Ballyfermot Roundabout yesterday afternoon.

Also, does anyone here own the white clubman that was at the Vantastival Launch on Saturday?

Also spooted a green 91 or 94 heading out through the carpark when I was walking out earlier.
