After eleven months of ownership, I just saw another 124 Spider for the first time. I was bicycling in the nearby town of Ponce Inlet and caught a passing car in my peripheral vision. I thought, "Nice car" and turned to look as it pulled away. It was a gorgeous metallic gray. I thought the tail lights made the rear of the car look wider than I experience my own car (which is to say, close up and stopped). Overall, I was impressed by what I saw, but then I would, wouldn't I? On a beautiful partly cloudy day, the top was up, which was kind of a shame but I was also glad because, if the top had been down, I was sure I would have felt a pang of jealousy. Which makes no sense but there it is.
