I saw a silver 360 Spider pulling off of Lake Pine onto Highway 64 in Cary/Apex and there is a black Mondial at European Performance on Hillsborough St. in Raleigh that I looked at tonight.

Do any of you guys know if Sterling Sharpe still has his red 512 TR? I remember as a kid growing up in Columbia I would see him in it from time to time. I remember the day he had both of them delivered in Columbia at Phillips on Two notch. I was like 16 and I about wet my pants standing next to Sterling's red 512 and his brother Shannon's black one.

I don't think they are originally from Columbia, but as you know Sterling went to USC and Shannon went to Savannah State. When I left Columbia in 98, Sterling still lived out in the Northeast area of town (Longcreek plantation I think) but I don't know if he has moved out of town yet. I'll ask my uncle, he's still pretty good buddies with him. I heard that he was the co-owner of University Motors in the vista (I think that's what it's called)

You sound frustrated. I know I am. It seems like a couple of enthusiasts like us could get on some kind of e-mail list. I drove to Virginia this weekend looking for an excuse to drive. I take that back, I didn't really need an excuse, I was going to drive anyway. But it sure would be nice to do it with some other enthusiasts. Do you know about the trip to Asheville to drive the Dragon the first weekend in April? I found out about this from some guys I met at VIR a couple of weeks ago.

Saw a Yellow F355 Spyder at the Sardis Crossing shopping center (corner of Sardis Road North and Monroe) parking lot on Saturday - seems driver was "tanning" at Palm Beach Tan.

Anyone on the list? Lived in Charlotte most of my life and that's the first 355 I've seen around here.

Saw a silver 456, in the rain, yesterday. It was turning onto the onramp to 40 East from Davis Drive in RTP. It proceeded to take the 540 onramp, and alas, I had to sadly stay on 40.

Gorgeous car, and very surprising to see it out in the rain. I'm glad some people aren't afraid of driving in the rain.

I've seen that car out at RTP on Davis as well, a couple months ago. I share your sentiment about driving in the rain.

That would be FCI, Foreign Cars Italia in Greensboro. That is where they sell the Ferraris. They actually just opened a branch in Charlotte where they will be selling Maseratis.

The next nearest Exotic Car dealership that I know of would probably be D.C. or Atlanta...

That is probably the same car I saw near the Raleigh Airport area when I was heading to Charleston SC. Looked like it had tint on it too.


I know this isn't a Ferrari but I saw Two Gallardos today. One was an Orange one on there way to Charlotte on I-85. I didnt get a close look but I remember someone saying the person is from Raleigh and is owned by a Girl and the tag says "Redhead".
Also just a few min ago I was doing some paper work and getting stuff done for a conference on Monday. Then all of a sudden I saw a Yellow Gallardo at the TA Travel Centers , they left and went towards the Raleigh area. I see Ferraris quite frequently thru here but usually im in and out of my office so its hit or miss for me to see them all pass by.

I have seen the "REDHEAD" tag on another car when I was heading back into town from Pittsburgh. This was about 2 years ago. It was on a red 360 at that point, and it was a girl driving it. I actually have a picture, albeit a bit fuzzy, of it somewhere in my archives.

I remember a few months back someone mentioning that the tag was now found on a orange Gallardo.

Saw a red F355 (pretty sure it was) getting onto an onramp was we were getting ready to pass it in a VW caravan in Columbia today musta been around noon or thereabouts. I believe we were on I77. But we got off as he was passing by so I'm pretty sure it was an F355. Anybody on here?
