I'm thinking about heading down there on Wednesday. Is the Superamerica still there?

from what i have heard, superamerica is gone, and the place is basically empty except for a 430 and 2 maseratis
I still suggest you go. You might get lucky and get there when something is being delievered or if they restock the showroom.
yeah. I'm annoyed i didn't get down to see the superamerica
I might stop by tomorrow. I'll be the kid in the german t-shirt.
I'd be going later in the week. Probably thursday
its really bare right now. 430 in the showroom. 2 360s. 2 550s. Mondial and 4 masers.
I dont mean to ask a dumb question, but it sounds like your going just to see whats there, and they dont mind? I always figured I would get kicked out if I couldnt afford one and just wanted to look around.
As long as you are polite, stay out of the way, and don't annoy a customer, they tend not to mind. At least in my experience. I've been there several times when young guys were looking at the cars. Just don't come in a large group, that, I'm sure, will get you tossed pretty quickly.
After all, the kid looking at a car today, might have a dad looking for a car, or come back in 5 years and buy one of his own.
Also, every car they have can be seen through the window. Sundays are great for Ferrari window shopping.
I've been to so many car dealerships, i'm not "afraid" of walking in and looking around. I usually know a lot about the cars so if me and a sales guy get talking, he'll realize i'm an enthusiast. 2nd, i usually dress nice. This may sound like a silly thing, but its important. I'd never go in in jeans and a t shirt. I wear either a shirt (semi-casual) or polo and some nice shorts or pants. I'm always polite too and ask if i can take pics. I sometimes ask if i can sit in a car and i've only been turned down once that i can remember (in England i asked someone if i could sit in the Porsche GT1 they had. The guy said no becuase they get little kids asking all the time so its their policy to say no and the car wasn't theirs, it was on consignment. Thats understandable).
So basically, be nice, polite and as Dave said, don't get in their way or annoy them, you're fine
Thanks for the replies, appreciate it. Might go window shop on Sunday first!!
No wonder the SA isn't there. It was on its way to Concorso!
Hopefully, they'll bring it back soon. Pat, can you tell me if it comes back? You drive by there like every day...
i do. I just went for a spirited ride in the TL and some how ended up driving by Algar. Its like beacon for me.
