Ferrari Sightings

Just a quick note for those of you who haven't seen the Enzo yet (..and that was me until yesterday), they have a yellow Enzo at the Maserati dealership here in Charlotte.
Wish I would have had my camera with me as they had a yellow Carrera GT parked next to it. It would've been the trifeca with a yellow SLR, but I'm not sure if they even make the SLR in yellow.
Anyway.....made my day, as I had stopped by just to get a little inspiration before a job interview (keeping my eye on the prize). Now if they'd just stock an occasional vintage F car, they'd make my year.

nice.

in columbia today (2/19), at the intersection of forest drive and trenholm which is out towards ft. jackson, saw a silver 360 pull in to an exxon station (and almost bottom out it looked like, might have been an optical illusion though)

then as i turned onto trenholm, saw what appeared to be a red 355, but on second thought might have just been a kit car:-(. it had a 355 rear end but it looked too short and stubby to be a real fcar

There is a great group of guys in town that have F Cars. We normally meet at the Starbucks in Trenholm plazza. Last week, 4 360's, Twin Tubo Porsche, GT3, Austin H 3000, Testorosa, M6, I may be leaving something out. I think we have something good going on. Great cars, but the new friends are terrific.

wow thats pretty crazy. i hope you guys all enjoyed todays amazing weather, would have been perfect to take one of those beauties out for a spin.

you dont happen to know any viper owners do you? i keep seeing a modded red gen2 (i think) and a stock looking black srt10 drivin around. unfortunitly the red gen2 owner seems to think USC's campus is his personal racetrack though

edit// any pictures from these gatherings? i think i might just die if i see multiple 360's sitting with a porsche TT and GT3

Go to Austin's website and read about his adventures, expecialy the one about the Ferrari, it's reallly funny. There are some pics or us flying into Greensboro, Daniel picked us up at the airport and deposited us at FCI, but they did not have the car he wanted. Ferrari of Washington fulfilled that request.

I would be glad to show pics, but have not learn how to do so.

MAY CAR HAS NEVER SEEN THE RAIN...WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE THINKING?? IF THE SKY TURNS DARK, I HEAD FOR HOME....SOMETIMES I CAN NOT MAKE IT BACK IN TIME, SO THIS IS WHEN THE TRUSTY BLUE TARP COMES INTO PLAY. MY TARP IS VERY LARGE, AND I WRAP THE 348 AT LEAST TWO OR THREE TIMES TO ASSURE THAT NO WATER TOUCHES THE PRECIOUS METALS OR PAINT.... SOME FOLKS WILL LAUGH WHEN THEY RIDE BY AND SEE THE BLUE WORM LOOKING CREATURE SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY....NOT TO MENTION THE WET RAT STANDING BESIDE THIS CREATURE...I KEEP TELLING MYSELF, THEY WOULD DO THE SAME IF THEY WERE IN MY SHOES..................YEAH RIGHT!!!!! I WOULD DRIVE THE 348 IN THE SNOW, IF WE EVER GOT ANY!! FERRARI'S LOVE THE RAIN!!!!
