    Well, for the first time in my life I saw a Ferrari in my hometown. TdF blue (or similar) on black 360 Spider, headed north on South Pelham Rd about 30mins ago. Anyone here?

    Maybe I'm not from such a dumpy place after all...

    360 in Welland?
    No way!

    Each year me and my family we go visit my dad's family in Welland. (yes my dad comes from Welland but when he finished university he moved to Montreal)

    I have an uncle that lives in Fonthill you know!
    I think the most amazing car I'v seen in Welland is maybe a Porsche 911 or a Chevrolet Corvette.

    I grew up in Welland and Fonthill, although I moved away in '94. My family is still here; I'm in Fonthill right now. But I tell you it was a real shock to see a 360 Spider here! Sure, there's doctors and business owners, but around here not many people can pony up for a $260k Cdn car.

    Being a steeltown there are plenty of muscle cars and Vettes... Don't know if I've ever seen a 911 around here, although there's 944's and Boxsters. There's a silver and a red Viper around town too.

    Hey Ryalex, I know of two other 360 Spiders in the area...a red one in St. Catharines...and a silver one in St. Catharines...acquainted with the cousin of the silver Spider's owner. The owner's a local doctor (surgeon I think).

    Today on the main drag of Welland I saw a red car coming towards me... an F40?? But if I squinted it looked like an 80's Camaro... sure enough, it was a big Camaro-based F40 kit-car.

    No one told the guy the scudetto badges don't go on the front and back. And although I have a disposable camera in the car for 'daily random pictures' it wasn't wound to the next pic yet so no evidence.

    Just a bump in case anyone else in Welland has any recent Ferrari sightings!
