Question Possible member sighting near Watsonville yesterday


Yesterday morning, I was driving down to the Scout boat (which is currently hauled out in Moss Landing) at around 9:00am, and just south of Watsonville on Highway 1, a dark red 123 turbo 300D passed me. What surprised me was, as the guy drove by, he waved at me. I waved back after a second, but again, I was surprised as, in this general area, something like that is very rare. I'm sure that it's unlikely, but I was wondering if by chance it was someone on here.

Just curious...

I live in Watsonville, but it wasn't me- I have a gold 300D turbo, and our 300 non turbo is Inca red.

That having been said, there are a LOT of W123 cars in this area in nice condition, There's even a double of mine floating around town, as well as a really nice guacomole green w/ bamboo interior 300D non turbo in the downtown area. That's a really retro combination.

I'll be looking for you-
