    my best spotted ever...really my favorite car ever. Lamborghini Miura, lime green, I THINK it was an S.. it was surrounded by SUV's so I couldn't completely see
    about 20 minutes ago, i couldn't get a pic.. honestly i was in shock. I was headed south and he was headed north on 41 near Gurnee
    All the years i have watched for fun cars, all the time i have loved Italian cars. I have sat in 2 miuras, drove one, and saw a few dozen at shows and yet I have never seen one just out driving..
    Anyone know who it might be? know when it might turn up at a show so I can see it again?
    did I mention favorite car ever? :)

    #82 Red Bull "Toyota Camry" NASCAR up and down Wacker this morning. Technically, Scott Speed's car, but I doubt he was driving this one. It looked like the real deal, complete with head restraint and all that. Certainly sounded authentic, and anyone within 3 blocks can hear it.

    And yes, that's a taxi light on the roof. I thought about flagging him down for a ride to the office...

    That's ok with me: Maybe in 10 years there will be one cheap enough for me to acquire. :)

    They are fantastic cars to drive and as long as you get in it approaching it from the front, you're ok. ;)
