    Ok, I did one of these awhile ago but for Decatur & learned there were a lot more than I thought there. So now I would like to see what all exotics are in Springfield, I know of a decent amount now, but I would like to hear what people around here have to say. Whether it is yours or a friends or you have just seen it, just post it please. Thanks!

    I heard there are 2 Bentley Continental GTs, I know the guy with the scud, Mike has the Mosler & MP4-12C, I heard there are 7 ford GTs in springfield, heard of the gallardo, a 360 challenge, I think a 360 spider, saw a F430 spider on the interstate. That is a lot for the area I think, wasn't sure what else was around here. Thanks

    I wish I could see these cars. I have also seen a black Aston Martin. I am really hoping for no rain & a big turnout Saturday! I hope to see everyone & their cars there!

    Unlikely, many people are out of town. We are likely changing over to the 12th to get more people together.

    I would contact Isringhausen and put together an event with them. I'm sure they know all the exotics within 150 mile radius.

    Well if it means getting more cars there, I am looking forward to it. Can we get conformation for either this Saturday or next that way people know. I am going to try to get some people there. If you could find out the details & when exactly that would be great.

    That is a good idea, Isringhausen should just do a big event.

    Here are photos from the One Lap of North America Relay event in Springfield at Brandt. The blue 360 is someone that post here. The 360 Stradalle is from Peoria. The St. Louis contingent had the yellow 360 spyder, the red California, prugna 308QV, the 599 was the One Lap car that came from St. Louis and would be handed over to the Chicago group later in the day.

    Red Testarossa, red Boxer, Scud and 612 are all local to you. More than that are current and former members in town.

    The Stradale is a very nice looking car, there is a guy in Springfield with one, I've only seen it once. Where do you guys usually see all these cars? Are there certain restaurants or hangout places that they gather at?

    That is a local doc. He does not drive it much. The bentley is also a doc. Most of the cars I see are usually in traffic.

    There always seem to be fancy cars over by washington park. I believe there was a meet wednesday night.

    That makes sense, doctors usually do well. Do you know what the other guy with a Bentley does?

    Also thanks, I will have to check that out. Too bad it is getting colder out, all the nice cars will be put away for awhile.

    Ok my friend saw a black lamborghini with black rims. He wasn't sure of the model, but said it looked like a newer one & a blonde female was driving it. It got off of I-55 & was heading into town towards Dirksen . Anyone have any idea of what kind it might be & if it from around here?

    I think that was my wife in the Mclaren

    She picked up my daughter from the airport around 4:30 and took I-55

    If she was headed south there should of been 2 blonds in the car North would of been just her.

    I heard he is getting a silver 2007, I hope to see it in the spring at the gatherings. On Sunday I saw an older viper gts at Tilted Kilt & one of the Bentleys at Petsmart. They were both very nice looking. Then Scott said he took both of his cars out for a ride & said he saw you in the Mosler. You two must have a secret place you go lol I saw a black Tesla Model S on the interstate this morning, it was sharp looking. I have seen a different one at one of the doctor's offices awhile back.

    Best? Well, we see 5000 cars a year so...

    Best racecar? We built a Porsche 993 club racer (non-street) and a E30 M3 that drove really well. In fact we have built lots of them. They were/are all very good - many of them past championship cars & lap record holders.

    Best Supercar? Lots of those are best. Had in a superb 550 Marenello that caught my eye (show worthy), a memorable supercharged NSX, Gallardo's (fun to drive), Ford GT (what can I say?), we built the 612 Scag that landed on the cover of FORZA magazine (612 HP and zero to 60 in 3 seconds). I custom did the worlds only Ferrari performance rear axle ratio myself for that one. Its a stunner. We still build the fastest Cent IL street turbo Porsche's - period. And those are favs.

    Best posh? We had a Bentley W12 turbo cab in the other day. Tan on tan. The car is sublime. Probably the most posh around. But we see lots of Rollers & big body Benzes all 800 ft.lbs of torque & yummy.

    Best vintage? We have Gullwing clients, and right now we are finishing up a full frame off on a MGTD that has really caught a lot of attention. I still lean towards the early Porsche stuff, both 356 & short wheelbase 9'ers are faves.

    Best Custom? We helped with a RX7 with a LS7 that is mind-bending (read dangerous). We did a blown 392 Stroker Hemi in a Wrangler with a 90 shot of spray and a custom 6 speed (wheely machine) that recently ended up on the cover of a four wheel magazine (and we dont do domestics). Did a 300ZTT that was/is over the moon. My personal 944 with a blown V8 is one of our staffs faves...

    Best daily? Audi? BMW? Jag? VW? Acura? Lexus? Saab? Rover? Lots of those are faves.

    Had a twin engine Lamborghini cigarette boat in (needed 24 carbs synched).

    Had in a VW Kubelwagen (German army vehicle) that was mesmerizing...

    Hard to pick.

    So... Best?

    Well... I would have to say - the next one :)

    He lives at the mall because he owns La Nails in the mall. He also got a different Bentley, which looks a little better than his other one.

    Just a beautiful car, I will have one some day and hopefully a Ferrari too!

    I saw the second Bentley parked downtown once and haven't seen it again. I'm pretty sure it was a brand new black one. Anyone know if it is still around and what he does?

    I hope someone can get them to come to the meets when they start up again.
