    White definitively is a rare color for the 360. Weird statistic but I know there's only 5 360 Spiders with the White over tan color combo so insane find!

    Saw a really nice white first generation Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder early this afternoon on Rea Road in Charlotte. First time I've seen this one.

    Also saw a blue Lotus Elise on Rea Road, a red Lotus Elise on Highway 521 in Indian Trail, SC, along with a white Maserati Ghibli.

    Last Saturday (a week ago): black 997-gen 911 Turbo S and red Ferrari 458 Italia in Blowing Rock, NC. Today: dark red Ferrari 458 Italia (!!!) driving in the opposite direction of whatever highway I was on coming in to Raleigh. It's extremely rare that I see a car like that around here! Missed pic today :(

    Black Acura NSX was a few cars behind me on Ten Ten Rd today at around 1:20. I think I've seen it before. Also saw either a Lotus Elise or Exige drive past Autopark on US 64 while I was filling up at the gas station there.

    I haven't been much help here lately as the 308 has been in the shop for a major and some long overdue improvements. Should have her back next week and will definitely bring her out to play often over the rest of the summer.

    Grey Quattroporte was leaving the Umstead Hotel & Spa this afternoon at about 1:20. Last gen model, looked like a GT-S trim.

    Oh. My. Goodness. Do you know if it is a local car? I'm in Charlotte fairly frequently and HAVE to see one of those before I die! :)

    Well I've been around long enough to know that I've never seen any of the special Ferrari's before! (360 Challenge, 430 Scuderia, etc).
    I think FCI said they had one on order...but they didn't say anything about already delivering a Speciale. It's the second one I know of in NC, apparently someone in the Wilmington area has a red one. I wonder how many more are headed to NC?

    No pic of the Speciale. I was going the opposite way on Sharon in rush hour traffic. But boy it snapped my head around quick. First time I've seen one around here. I'll ask my buddy at FCI if he knows any details. There was definitely no mistaking what it was though.

    FCI had a Speciale on thier floor for a bit, and, there's several Scud's in the RDU area...from time to time they make an appearance at C&C.

    They have delivered a few Speciales and a few more coming.

    Friend getting a Nero with Black stripe delivered in August.

    Nice I have yet to see one. I keep going back to FCI because I want to trade my 430 in for the white 458 they have there but not sure I will be married long after coming home with it.

    Is this in Waxhaw? Sure looks familiar to me. I think I have seen this one driving around once before.

    Saw a couple of good cars today:

    Red 1967 Datsun 1600 Roadster parked beneath the drive through at the bank at the Quail Ridge plaza at about 6:30. Not an exotic or anything, but I don't think I've ever seen one before.

    Grey 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S at a restaurant on Dixie Trl at about 7:10. First Vantage S I have seen on the streets.

    White 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo at the Shell gas station on S. Saunders St at about 7:40. Had an extremely rare manual transmission, probably one of the only 2013 Gallardo's in the world so equipped.

    Green Morgan 4/4 on NC 50 in Garner at about 8:05. If it's the one that was at C&C a few times I think it's a 1980, but I don't remember exactly.
