    Black 512bbi this morning on Westhiemer & Kirkwood. Sweet to see that it's being driven & not trapped as a garage queen.

    I see an Enzo everyday in the River Oaks area. If you go down Troon Rd. (parallel to Kirby) there is one house that is gated (only one on the street) there is always an enzo just parked outside, not even in the garage, as well as a 360 modena. Owner used to have an F50 as well as a Testerossa before he totalled it.

    Damn!!! I've yet to see a Merci in Houston, other then being stationary at MB-Greenway.

    I did happen to see a silver Vanquish the other day at my M5 Precision Driving Experience I did at Reliant Stadium. The owner was a hispanic guy, and was very cool. He gave me a quick spin in the car.....amazing ride....

    Saw a red F40 on Shepherd just south of W. Gray at around 5:30 yesterday evening. Despite the traffic, it was being driven rather spiritedly! I heard it about 10 seconds before I saw it!

    Kirby is actually an excellent road now. The part of San Felipe he was on is actually one of the better parts.


    Anyway, also spotted a red 360 w/o a challenge grille. traveling on Richmond toward Wesleyan. Also spotted another z8 on Avalon and River Oaks Blvd. :)

    Saw a whole boat load of Ferraris at the 242 Woodlands Wal Mart Sat night. Also a black Diablo, white 88 countach and one LOUD Blue Diablo. It was cold out there but the Diablo was a fine space heater if you stood behind the exhaust.

    What you saw was the Houston-import weekly car meet. Luigi & Ralph made it out there along with Dale. I tried to make it but I was running late. Didn't make it until 9pm when everyone left. Caught up to them later at the "extreme pinball palace," it was really great see them again.

    Thanks Luigi.

    ** Could be Paul Frame's house. Is it near the country club on the left? He has owned numerous Ferraris and surely he would overlook the Enzo.

    No, I beleive it belongs to one of the sons of the lawyer Jamail. See the car everyday, outside, but the guy seems pretty active: car always park different (drives it) hood open, him working on it or something.
    Other cars are 360 spyder, cayenns S, MB 600. Not bad...
    I always considered stopping by in my Fcar to see if he would be interested in taking me for a test drive. Never dared...

    the enzo belongs to dahl jamail. both he and his brother live on troon. he is also known from his days as the singer of a band called titty bingo. today he is an attorney. he also had an 328 made of aluminum back in the late eighties. the car keeps showing up on ebay, but has yet to find a buyer. jamail has had many cras over the last several years, including an f-50 amongst others. although the time i have seen the enzo, it looks unused and in need of a wash. it is always sitting under the car port. i would be interested to see how many miles he has put on it.

    Sad to hear Paul sold most of his F-cars, he is a cool guy. He drove the sh*** out of that F50. I remember him telling me that for what he paid on the lease for that car he better drive it. At least his daughter didn't suffer as she drove an Acura while his dad drove the F50, I guess she's still in an Acura.

    3 Ferraris within 1 minute. On Westhiemer near Sage, 2 yellow 360 spyders and a Red 355 spyder. But they're for rent hyping up the Superbowl. Uugh... kind of makes me sick.

    Hi Rex, are you in The Woodlands, if so PM me cause we get together for runs every now and then, even wreaked Boxsters. And no, I have never seen a 456 up here.

    I saw one too near Westheimer and Chimney Rock at one of the rental places. They have all their cars lined up out front for the 'high rollers' who are coming for the big game.

    Jason I had to keep my eye on the road. I am sure that is the same
    car. I am pretty sure it was a dark brown and tan metallic. It was
    at the car wash next to the hot dog stand. It will probably be cleaned
    again on Friday. How much $$ to rent an exotic for the weekend ? lol


    Dale I have a deal for your car. We can rent your car for lots of $$$ !!
    With the money you can move up to a kit car; or a fancy 1959 Caddy
