Was wondering if we was going to have a "was it you" section like SXOC but thinking of numbers may not be popular, but with all the newbie's such as myself over the last year could be a future plan for the site?

Anyway on to my question.....

I keep getting text's off my mates saying "Saw an S15 the other day near work"

Got told a blue one near samlesbury on the A59 near preston last week...???Anyone?

And also a Pewter one like mine in St.Annes near blackpool??

I didnt know of any other S15 owners in NW so was hoping to meet up?

Really not worth a section. Check out how many times an S15 is spotted on SXOC, and how many get a reply out of those...

Except for ones I've seen at events, Blinx and Kango, I've only seen one other in four years (in the UK)...

In all my years of Jap car spotting :rolleyes: I've only ever seen one in person.

It was a totally standard looking one in blue outside a hotel and cinema complex in Swindon - back in December of last year.

These babies are rarer than RX-7's which is saying something...

Before I got mine I had only ever see one other S15 on the road in all my years of driving!! Even at shows they are few and far between :thumbs: .

So imagine my suprise while on my way up to newcastle to collect mine when in the space of half an hour I spot two S15's!!!!!! This obviously resulted in much hilarity and pi55 taking from my mates about this oh so rare car we were going to collect :eek: :eek: :eek: :rotfl: :rotfl:

I know. 5 different S15s have been spotted round Swindon. However, that's a pretty rare occurrence.

You'd also think that my lightning yellow "top banana" would have had a mention already on SXOC :cry: Seen so many SXOC owners including some S15's.

I don't think I've seen an S15 on the road, only the ones that congregate at Littleknocks for repairs, Martin's 2 (lucky bugger:D) and a couple at drift events.

Ha just found this thread:eek: well Tony the Pewter one in St.Annes was my 1st before I bent it like a boomerang avoiding a girl running across the road without looking :furious:. Have had the replacement a while now with lots done to it,was glad to hear of an S15 so close,although my son has said he saw one around Blackpool a couple of months ago,"was that you",we will have to have a club meet at the Pod or somewhere this year would be nice to meet the members:).

I now have the one with the 20" wheels and C-West GT Kit on,my 1st was standard and I only had it 3 weeks before it was written off:(, it was bent very badly as I hit a car side on.I had waited 4 months for it as there was a problem with the ECU numbers during the ESVA test at Bristol.
Dont know leon but I used to work in Lytham for 11 years so have quite a lot of old friends around lytham, Freck and Warton as well as Blackpool.I do know a lad who works in Warton and has a white S14 with black/gold stickers down the side?
Will keep my eyes open at USC and japshow we may run into eachother:).

Yeah next time im around i will call by, it was the SXOC North-West meet this tuesday was a good turn out, would be nice to see another S15 an we usually have a convoy from tickled trout, preston to warrington.
Will post up before the next one, see if i can generate interest from the rare S15 owners.

Yeah the atmosphere is fantasic in euro games, far better than league games. I went to most champions league games last season except the qualifier to get into the group stage. However seeing the 8-0 besiktas game was good, upto the chelsea semi-final.
However this season they started new sceme that you can only get a ticket this time round if you went to a minimum number of games last season...
Yeah new stadium when it finally comes round to being built.
Would still never take the S15 though.....haha
