    Dont mean to bring up an old thread but i didnt wanna start a new spotters thread if there already was one (thank you search feature) little background on me, i moved to Albuquerque about a month ago from San Diego (quite a change) but enough about that, here are some of the spots ive seen around. Ill try getting pics from now on, now that i know there is a spotters thread.

    05/20/2010- Black Nissan GT-R on San Mateo South
    05/21/2010- All black Ford GT, Eastbound on Paseo Del Norte
    05/21/2010- Silver 355, Westbound on Paseo Del Norte
    05/27/2010- Red 360 Modena on Kirtland AFB
    05/31/2010- Same red 360 Modena on Montgomery Blvd
    06/09/2010- Not really a exotic but a nice black Viper with US MUSL plate on Kirtland AFB

    Its nice seeing these cars in the wild

    The top car is mine. Was dirty that day, IIRC. Visiting the Operationally Responsive Space office. Taken before the Mov'It ceramic brakes were installed.

    That 360 on Kirtland is there very often. You can usually see it parked outside the 377th Med Clinic on San Mateo on nice days. I believe its for sale though. Its the only one I have seen on a regular basis since I moved to ABQ 3 years ago and one just went up for sale locally by a owner up off of tramway and constitution. Pretty sure its the same guy.

    I just got permission from my firm to do the mother of all telecommutes, so I will be moving from Washington, DC to Santa Fe in 13 months (7/13). My parents will be making the move as well; sort of a home-coming for my father who was born and raised in Las Vegas (NM).

    So that means a 1955 Ferrari 500 Mondial will be moving to Santa Fe. First f-chatter to "spot" it gets a . . . pat on the back; likely spotting will be on 25 heading towards Lamy on an early Saturday morning blast. Or at Harry's Roadhouse for brunch . . . . .

    look forward to meeting you all. Oh, and my 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale will be making the trip as well.

    Dark grey Maserati Quattroporte in downtown Santa Fe this evening. It sounded insane. There were also several vintage Mercedes and a late 50s MG as well.

    First F car spot this year goes to a silver (argento nurburgring maybe) 458 on Montgomery in ABQ. Guy was cool enough to entertain me with its exhaust note which sounded amazing.

    Dear Bill,

    Look forward to seeing you at the SF Concorso. Here is Dan Manzier's shot of you pushing me through turn 5 at Road America three weeks ago. Thanks for not running into me.

    Spotted at the usual monthly Cars and Coffee at the Four Seasons Resort at Rancho Encantado just a few miles North of Santa Fe off the Tesuque exit. Weather was cool but clear and the drive in the blue car was good as always. Expect that will be the last driving event for the winter for the car.
    Best regards,
