      Wow, coming back from Amelia Island, FL saw 2 Phaetons within maybe 30 minutes of each other heading south on I75 about an hour or so south of Atlanta.

      I was heading north so they went by quick, I think they were both black.

      OK, Ron K., fess up!

      BTW, how do you block an inside lane? An outside lane maybe, but an inside one?

      Last night at around 10:30pm I saw a silver phaeton just off Ext. 21 off I-91. Mass plates. Waved but you weren't looking.

      I spotted a 2005/2006 Black V8 with Ohio plates in downtown Detroit last night. Rumor has it that the car belongs to Four Speed Fox aka Jack.

      Wasn't in the area and the descriptor 'slow' assures it is not me.

      How many Phaeton's do we now have in the Boston area?

      My tire dealer says the former owner of Tweeter is now driving a lovely blue one.


    13. 01-12-2009 05:38 PM #363
      I recently bought a 2004 W12. I'm not in the Boston area per se, but live in Rhode Island, on the state line. I rarely see any Phaetons here. I'll be sure to wave when I'm up your way.

      Maryland I-270 toward split - dark 'Blue' V8 with temp tags. Probably '05...

      I always forget to post these...

      Roughly 2 weeks ago I saw a silver Phaeton on 495 leaving Bethesda/Chevy Chase area headed towards 95N....looked like mine but was driven by an older women.

      License plates said something like winelady or something. When I pulled up next to her she sped up (tinted windows and rims can be scary sometimes I guess), went I decided to drive off she then noticed my car and beeped and waved at me.

      I saw a silver Phaeton on Route 347 on Long Island in Stony Brook, NY. The driver was wearing a top hat and smoking a pipe. He seemed somewhat elderly, and for that reason, I don't think he even noticed me. It was also during evening hours.

      Friday, January 30th, 12:20pm (Korean time) Silver Phaeton driving by Itaewon shopping district, Seoul. Wow. I travel half across the globe and despite only seeing a handful of VWs, one was a Phaeton. I'm taking this as a sign of good fortune.

      Thursday, January 29 at 10:15 a.m., Black V8 with tinted windows heading north on A1A (Ocean Drive) turning onto westbound ramp for Hallandale Beach Boulevard. I waved, and I think you did too, but tinted windows made it hard to tell!

      Yesterday evening I was following a Campy white Phaeton V8 on the Florida Turnpike in Broward county. Got beside him a few times but could not see the driver. I was driving an Audi A8 and a couple of times followed the Phaeton at speeds of 100 plus! Nice little run!

      Inside lane= passing lane

      This maroon phaeton was gabbing w/ his passenger, doing 55...

      On Jan 30, I saw a 2004 black car in Nashua NH, it had MA plates. Well dressed yuppie driver in it.

      2006 Phaeton V8
      02-03-2009 07:18 PM #381
      On Saturday January 31st around 5:20PM I saw a Black Phaeton in my own neighborhood, Circle C Ranch in Austin, TX.

      The woman in the passenger seat was definitely looking at me and smiling, not sure if you were just being friendly, or laughing at me wildly waving my arms at you.


    32. 02-04-2009 02:57 PM #382
      Hunter, she was probably laughing at you. But for none of the reasons you've mentioned.

      Ok that's my one joke for the day. Here come the moderators to smack me around.


    33. 02-07-2009 08:12 PM #383
      leaving Bal Harbour Shops (Miami Beach,FL) today in my 2006 white Phaeton, a black Phaeton was entering--however the VW badges (front, rear, wheels( had been replaced with Bentley emblems.

      I know the car and the owner, but I don't think he's a member of the forum. He owns a collectible car business, but the Phaeton is what he chooses as his daily driver. He's very proud of the Bentley emblems, and says the valets always park his car right in front of the restaurants next to the Ferarris and Roll Royces and no one ever seems to question whether it's actually a Bentley! He's a really great guy, and I think he put the emblems on as a joke, but I don't think he shares most of our perspectives when it comes to "stealth wealth"
