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

    1. 05-22-2008 06:00 AM #251
      Wow - how funny that I saw the same car that was in this picture posted some time ago!
      He looked unremarkable because I cannot even begin to describe him beyond he looked late 40s to early 50s. I could not determine if he was the owner or the driver of the owner.
      Nevertheless, a fun international connection of the remote kind!

      PS - No spottings in Helsinki yet.

      PSS - No spottings in Tallinn, Estonia either.

      This afternoon at about 14:30, saw a black Phaeton parked on southbound Finchley High Road just past Tally Ho, opposite Waitrose supermarket.

      People have speculated about the 'face' on Mars, when in fact it was a Phaeton the whole time.

      Silver one this afternoon in Old Portsmouth near the Spice Island pub on the Hard.
      I was busy dodging the the Bank Holiday deluge.

      Saw a Black one at Bratfest (Friday 5/23) in Madison, WI.
      Passed another one headed the opposite direction today about 3 pm on 39 from Rockford to Bloomington, IL.
      I was in my 07 Jetta and waved, but the windows were tinted pretty dark.
      Back in the saddle again!

      You were heading up Murray Ave in Pittsburgh (and almost ran over a pedestrian!) in a green/blue Phaeton (Waterworld?). I was going down the same street, in a Silver Mirror Phaeton, heading towards Rt. 376. All this took place around noon.

      Black V8 on Lone Mountain and Scottsdale Rd. (AJ's parking lot).... Oooops! Silly me... that was ME!
      Think I'm the only one around here...

      Well, after almost a year of no sightings, I had two in Boston this past Monday, within a couple of hours of each other!
      Sighting # 1: Monday June 2, around %:30 pm, Boston common, in front of the Four Seasons hotel: you were a V8, luna blue (I think), probably 05, some brake dust on front wheels. My wife and I were walking past the hotel, waved but you probably did not notice me.
      Sighting #2: Monday, June 2, around 7:00 pm: you were a V8, either black or dark blue, headed west on the Mass Turnpike right before the Cambridge tolls. We were driving in the same direction in my '91 Acura Legend Coupe, charcoal. You passed us, then I drove abreast and, if you noticed us at all, you were probably wondering what it was all about.
      In any case, a very good day, though too bad that I wasn't driving the Phaeton...

      I'll add my two sightings in Boston... well three, really.
      1) Aubergine 4-seater in the Somerville Home Depot parking lot about two weeks ago. You'd have found my Black Kav W12 near the lot exit
      2) Black V8 pulling out of the Gillette employee lot Wednesday mid-day.
      3) Black V8 pulling out of the lot *next* to the Gillette lot around 6-630pm Wednesday... weird to have two in adjacent parking lots!

      Saw a Dark Blue or Silver Phaeton ( it was still kind of dark) at the Chateau Elan golf course in Braselton GA. early Wednesday morning.
      Swing hard, in case you hit it.

      Spotted - Silver V8, tinted windows, Bentley wheels - parked in front of Old Ebbets Grill (Downtown Washington, DC) on Sunday (6/15).
      Very nice and clean (Shiny!)...but I just don't like Bentley wheels on a VW ...(although there's nothing wrong with that!)

      I saw an Aubergine (sp?) Phaeton, I believe it was a V8, in Blowing Rock, NC... Two days ago. The plate was non-NC I believe...

      I saw a Black Phaeton with 20's around 11:40pm on the 24th of June.
      It was in Des Plaines driving down River Road and passing Rand. Smelled like the driver was smoking something......
      I was in my DB B6 Passat at the time. I had the amber tails.
      Would ya look at that..

      I was going to say it was Lorenz's car but this W12 has chrome wheels. Nice.

      I saw a black one today in Newport beach, It was a V8 with a tan interior with a starbucks cup in the passenger side drink holder. It was parked on a street end at 10th st. and Bay ave. I work for the city and was driving by when i spotted it so I stopped, backed up and parked and started at it for around 10 mins LOL I was wondering if this one belongs to anyone that I've met at the gtgs that I've been to at Adams Donuts in HB. Anyone I know??
