    Thread: The Official "Was that you?" Phaeton Spotted Thread

    1. 08-02-2007 09:26 AM #51
      2004 Silver V8 on east bound M-59. Got off at the Mound Rd. exit and turned into an office complex. Michigan plate, last three digits were 611. External cell antenna on rear window.
      You were on your cell, I was the Subaru wagon trying to chase you down (85 mph in a 55 mph zone!) and tell you about this forum.

      Does this work as an excuse when pulled over for speeding?

      On Monday of this week, I was eating dinner at the La Madelienne restaurant in Dallas at the corner of Preston Road and Forest Lane. When I came out of the restaurant, parked in front was a black V8 (a few feet behind it was my black W12). Does the V8 belong to anyone here? It had non-personalized Texas plates...

      TWO sightings today:
      (1) About 10:45 this morning (8/4), black/black '05 V8, southbound on Harlem, a few blocks north of Irving Park. We waved to each other -- you were right behind me.
      (2) About 4:15ish this afternoon, luna/? '05-'06 with tint as dark as mine, westbound on Lake Cook between Arlington Heights Road and 53 -- just before I got rear-ended.

      I saw an 05 Aubergine at Howard Community College in Maryland today. Left a card on the window.

      LONELY HEARTS NOTICE
      You were in a black Phaeton heading west-bound on Forest Lane in front of Medical City Hospital at 10:12 AM this morning, Wednesday August 15, 2007. I was in a black Phaeton heading east-bound in the opposite direction. I waved a friendly hello. You gave no response. Perhaps you did not see me? If this was you, you know how to reach me.

      At noon today, on my way to see the new Mr. Bean movie, I saw a 2004 W12 just like mine in the parking garage at Northpark Center in Dallas. I parked nearby. License plate Y64TSP, registered in Rockwall, TX. Anyone here?

      Wow, three Phaetons in one driveway in Johnson County, KS. Ok, one was mine. Stopped by Tony's today to lower his new '04, Antibes Blue. What a gorgeous car. The other car, a silver one, Tony's other car, soon to be returned on lease.
      Anyway, mission accomplished. Hot but a fun GTG. Wish you were there to help sweat it out CHRIS. We will return for another install of a push button start, in cooler weather.
      Regards,
      Brent

      Anyone here with a blue one that I've seen several times on Rt. 117 in or near Sudbury, MA?

      Hello all, sorry, as I don't own a Phaeton, but I love the car and regularly see them in my area of Dallas (Lovers ln/Greenville, near SMU, and the Park Cities)

      Is this your plate license plate? if so, I believe I have seen you several times in my area, both on the street and on Central Expwy.
      I also saw a blue-green (aqua?) colored Phaeton roll through the parking lot at the Old Town Shopping Center as I was having lunch at Subway...

      Yes, it is. I'm on Central Expressway every day, usually in the left-hand lane cursing at the slow drivers rudely and illegally not moving out of the left-hand lane to yield to faster-moving traffic. Black with dark tint. Went to SMU many moons ago and still cruise through the Park Cities all the time.
      You got me!!

      Excellent! If you happen to see some guy in a lowered black Passat waving at you for no reason, it's probably me. I have seen several Phaetons over the past few years and I often wonder how many of them are on this forum

      I saw a black Phaeton today on my way home from work. It was on 101 south on Cuesta Grade. I was traveling north. It was about 5:00 pm. Only third one I have seen on the road, not including mine!

      We saw a brownish coloured Phaeton on US 101 north at 15:30 near Corte Madeira ... it was turning off in the Richmond Bridge direction.
      This was impressive as we'd just flown from London to San Francisco and were driving to Santa Rosa in a rented Cadillac STS ... a car that reminds you just how severe the mid-range performance is on a V10 TDi

      W12 (I presume it's a W12 with four exhaust tips, car was debadged)in the car park at the Goodwood motor circuit revival meeting at the weekend. I was parked a bit further down in my V10, which generated as much interest as some of the very exotic classics parked nearby!

      The W12 wasn't mine but I was there too, they parked me as far away from the circut as they could....Ba****ds

      Brent,
      Should have given me a call. The shop is always available. Tony should check to see if he can cut a deal on the silver. A friend in St. Louis bought his off lease at Dean in the low 20,000 range.
      Happened to be at Hen House at 135th St and ran into Todd's wife in the white phaeton tonight.
      Nice lady. She said Todd occasionally let's her drive the car.

      I rarely see any Phaetons other than my own but yesterday I saw two within ten minutes. A Luna Blue at the Bedford Hills Staples and a black in Kisco Chase in Mt Kisco. A Phaeton surge?!
