    Just wondering what everyone's opnions are about the best place to see exotic cars in the US is? I just visited Greenwich, Conneticut in June to see the Concours there, and that was a great place to see them. What are the other hot spots for car spotting? Thanks,
    David

    Over a one week period (middle week of August) Monterey will host the Concourso Italliano (absolutly the best Italian car show) along with the Historic races at Laguna Seca, Pebble Beach Concourse, auctions and rallies.

    Nobody walks in L.A.

    Having lived in Eagle Rock, I can safely say that's NOT the place to see anything fancier than a Taco-Truck/Roach-Coach.

    YES!! That is the best place to see exotics. I was down there for one week last year for Summer Vacation. I saw about 15 Modenas, a few 360 spiders (one of which was owned by a tarot-card reader...haha), and.....


    ....a Lamborghini Murcielago! I'd never seen one the street until that moment..and needless to say...it was nothing short of amazing. It was a beautiful yellow Murcielago that appeared to be completely stock. It was gorgeous...and I've yet to see another exotic that even compares to it on the street.

    So yes...I do believe Miami is the place to be if you want to see loads of exotics! You can't beat Miami.

    I gotta agree with LA being the spot. I drove down the street looking for a parking spot and there was a Porsche GT2 in a spot, went turned around and there was a Diablo in the same spot. Got a pizza, came out and there was a 360 IN THE SAME SPOT!!!! a million dollars in cars at one meter in about 45 minutes.

    Yep, thats what I have experienced, like I said earlier, w/ the Concours in early June, there are a bunch of exotics just roaming the streets! What about NY, i believe Westchester or White Plains are pretty wealthy?
