I've given up waiving or nodding to other people in my area in any Abarth car's now.

I think I've had one guy who was happy to see me in another blue 595 & waive back like a mad guy coming off the ferry into Plymouth & then I've had a unnamed person who is active on here really rub me the wrong way after waiving at them in traffic.

There is a massive increase in 595's in the area I live in the last two to three months I'd never think that I would see so many, there was maybe three or four about when I first picked mine up a good few months ago.

Its a shame their are so many stone faced missable Abarth owner's in my area right now.

Yesterday, Beds, Leighton Buzzard, 2.10pm, on the A4146 bypass, not far from the Wing roundabout going down the hill.  White A500, 09-reg,  didnít have time to catch more details of the car.  I was in the Dogmobile in the other direction. Virtual wave !   :)

Decided to trawl through to see if I had been spotted, I believe this was me on my work commute!

Just seen my first '67' plate (I know we are half way through the month!) and its on a grey Abarth in sunny St Neots at 9am today. Welcome. It's either a regular visitor to these 'ere parts who's upgraded or a newbie. Or maybe a visitor that simply strayed off the main road (think  Lightning McQueen ⚡️) A

fellow Series 4 595 Competizione, Modena Yellow, SS Wheels, Gloss Black Side Stripes!  ;D

Spotted yesterday 9:30, at the main lights off Lime Kiln Bank, Bucknall (Leek Road) heading towards Abbey Hulton. Young Male driver, no idea how you didn't spot me waiting at the lights adjacent to you right at the front of the queue in the same car!

Had personal plate: something like CR16** (possibly Chris?)

...IKEA Bristol last night, parked up, shopped and had the traditional meatballs before returning to find a Competizione friend next to me. At first glance of the roof line I thought it was a standard 500 until I had a perfect line of sight to see the Abarth badge and Monza pipes. Absolutely made my day.

Not sure if they're on here, but if you are say hello.
