I wonder who owns this car now then....

It was at Origine last year and the guy who had it was selling it then and I also saw it for sale earlier this year on Pistonheads and Car & Classic
Just a Yellow Sport Spider...... ::N ::I ::C ::E

Dont know, but watch this vid of the day he picked up the car:

Whoever, he lives very local to me as some of the kids video blogs are recorded in the town I live in.
We have another local car show here on Sunday and I am guessing it may be there so will try and contact the kids father
and get him to join up if so.

That kid did a great job, enthusiastic, well spoken, clear, up beat and a bit of fun too.
I'm sure he will get a media job before you know it.

Hi Mark. That yellow Spider belongs to us. Really sorry we didn't get to chat on the day. My son (Lucas, aka Swag Supercars on YouTube :up ) got a message from you via his Facebook, but it only appeared to him a couple of days ago, so we missed the other local car show. Would love to chat/meet up some time to discuss the Spider. Haven't had the car long, but really enjoying it so far!

I know that the Spider isn't a "Supercar", but my son is really into cars, and we regularly take him into London to do car-spotting, especially in the summer when the Arabs bring all their supercars to the UK. He likes to vlog about the cars he sees, so he'll do pieces to camera and often interviews the drivers etc. If you get a chance, please take a look at http://www.youtube.com/swagsupercars as he has some clips of really special cars there - and then "like, comment and subscribe (to his channel)".

It's me! Enjoying the Spider experience so far - kinda like driving a really good looking Go-Kart!
We bought it at the end of July from a guy in Swindon, by the way.

Thanks for posting the YouTube link Mark - so you've already seen my son's YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/swagsupercars) - like I said in the previous post, he's pretty enthusiastic about cars - can generally tell the make and model of most Ferrari's and Lambo's from the engine sound or exhaust noise from quite a distance. Are you in Stortford? We're in Puckeridge. Looks like this (RAOC) membership is annually from Jan. 1st, so will make a note to join in the new year.

We think it's kinda "Super" - isn't that good enough?

My lad is really into supercars, so this is perhaps a stepping stone! Check out http://www.youtube.com/swagsupercars

Hi Simon.
Thanks for those great comments. He's only just turned 14 and I just showed him what you said and he's really chuffed to bits :up
He is, as you say, very enthusiastic about cars (the more expensive, the better!) and is really trying to build up a good subscriber base via his http://www.youtube.com/swagsupercars channel. He tries to put videos and vlogs on there at least once a week to keep it fresh.

Andy, why wait until 2020? Lucas would be happy to front a "Junior Top Gear" style program right now!

Any TV producers out there - check him out at http://www.youtube.com/swagsupercars ?

Apologies to one and all for the blatant promotion of my son's channel - but I know you'd all do the same if he was yours!

Have joined the club now Stephen, and looking forward to getting to know other Sport Spider (and Alpine) owners.

Is there a "Welcome" email/message on the way, with "What to do next" type information coming?

Ian,
You planning to run the car over winter or hiding it away? I forgot to sorn mine in October so will have it out for the rest of this month if you want to do a local Sunday meet up? ( Away next Saturday at Oulton Park though but here Sunday). I am at the Morgan garage in Little Hallingbury which could make an impromptu meeting point on a Sunday. Get to see the race Clio at the same time assuming it comes back in one piece.
Sadly most of our car events have finished till next year so no real car meet up planned, although we do meet somewhere every 3rd Monday, (ace café in summer) during winter not so many cars show up.

Mark.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.
Next
