    Hey Bobby, been a while since I've been on here. The 650S is most definitely the newest one I have seen. I actually got lucky and talked to him at a stoplight and he gave me his number to do a shoot with it sometime soon, said he couldn't keep himself out from driving it. Can't say I blame him there. Also, getting the hook up with the white and blue GT when the weather turns a bit nicer. It's one of my buddies uncle's, and he got a ride in it about a month ago and showed me the video, he got that GT to 180 on the highway during the ride!! Wheeew, i'm going to ask for the same ride. lol
    The Dark blue Maserati is the ex president of the Ferrari Club of America, he has many exotics, mostly older more collectable Ferrari's, but also a Ford GT, Lamborghini Jarama, he has 2 (!!!) different colored Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione's, one black one yellow amongst the huge variety of things he drives quite often.
    Supposedly the guy with the 650S has a Vanquish and a F50, which I won't believe that until I see it. I did see a black F430 coupe in Forsyth by the north Walmart a few months back, haven't seen it since.

    Also the guy with the F12 didn't necessarily 'upgrade' the GRT CAR, just added a second one, hence the plates GRT CAR 1 and GRT CAR 2 ...personally I think he needs to upgrade the 458 now

    Nice to see you post on here Jacob! I agree that he should upgrade his 458 now, maybe he will get a 488 GTB. You will have to let me know when you do the McLaren photo shoot and let me know what other cars he has!

    I wish I would have seen one of his other cars, like on of the Alfas! I love that car, nice picture! Keep us all up-to-date on cars in the Decatur area. Thanks!

    Saturday afternoon I saw a brand new black RR Phantom on a car hauler with a Dr. Pepper truck. On the interstate near the Rochester exit

    Sorry for the old post, but I was in Springfield for Halloween in 2013, out at the bars. Everyone was dressed up, and two younger gentleman showed up in a silver Lamborghini Gallardo, dressed as Doc and Marty McFly from Back To The Future. They said they lived in Springfield.

    I personally have never heard of or seen a silver Gallardo in the area. There is an orange one that used to get spotted every now and again, it wears Texas plates.

    That McLaren was at Road America May 13th-14th. I heard some people joking, he comes here in a McLaren but drives a Miata! Thought it was pretty funny.

    Mike G,

    My girlfriend's parents spotted your Ford GT at Hickory River last night.

    I'd post a pic, but I've reached my limit of attachments. Looks exactly like the one pictured above

    I spotted the Bentley at the White Oaks Mall. It may belong to the same guy that has driven a Bentley there for years. Not sure how I feel about the body kit.

    A buddy of mine spotted this Performante on October 28 at the Starbucks on Clearlake. Not sure if it is local or not.

    November 3, spotted a white Bentley CGT in Mt. Zion, as well as a yellow Alfa Romeo 8C (pictured above).

    November 4, spotted a black RR Ghost pulling out of the Road Ranger near the Sangamon exit.
