    There are some cars down this way but you're better off sticking to Charlotte or Atlanta for relatively regular sightings.

    Forgot to post mine from last Friday (the 6th). Was on the way to Charlotte last Friday afternoon and spotted a red F430. Can't remember if it was coupe or spider but it was parked at a large store off the South side lanes of I-85. Believe it was around Gaffney.

    Forgot to post a couple of sightings from the last week.

    Last Saturday I saw a lime green Dodge Viper ACR, a new Porsche GT3 along with an Acura NSX all in Ballantyne.

    On Sunday I saw an older Rolls Royce on Highway 521 near Indian Land. Later that day, I saw a red 1960's Maserati 3500GT in the Weddington area. I think the Maserati, or at least one like it, was at the Motori Italiani show in Charlotte last spring.

    Saw what looked to be a 308 or 328 on Wade Ave this afternoon at about 4:00. It was heading West towards Whole Foods. Anyone on here?

    Let's hope the weather cooperates. We're getting some snow right now and it appear it will stay pretty cold between now and Saturday.

    Yeah, I have been keeping an eye on that as well. No snow here at my house just yet, but I know that can change on short order...

    Awesome! Thank you for being so generous and offering to bring it. I love the NC community.

    It has been creating quite the stir. One of the residents at school came up to me asking if I had seen the announcement yet. Another one of my friends is driving up from Wilmington to see it.

    Looks like a bit of rain on Saturday but it is later in the day -- Hopefully it will work out. Looking forward to it.

    Unfortunately things are not looking so good for Cars and Coffee this Saturday morning. My neighborhood roads are icy as is my steep driveway and there's no sign of a thaw in site until after Saturday morning. I'm hoping to get the driveway cleared in time but I can't risk the trip if the neighborhood roads aren't cleared.

    Fingers are crossed. I've contacted our neighborhood president about the roads and a friend in construction is looking for someone to do my driveway but I don't want to cover it in salt.

    Mark. If we all get to C+C Saturday I would be happy to give one of your McLaren guys a lift to RDU. If the weather really stinks they might have to ride in the dog's Camry. In any event, see you for sure at the Enzo dinner.

    Ok they moved Cars and Coffee back a week to the 28th. The McLaren guys also rescheduled their trip so they can make it. Hopefully we'll get some nice weather or the event and hopefully I'll have time to clean up the P1 a bit. It's kind of dirty right now. A good dirty that comes from driving it a lot :)

    Hopefully that's good news.

    Likewise my 308 is filthy, but just from driving it. Unfortunately it hasnt been let out this week....although I almost drove it up to Va Bch to attend my Soldiers graduation from a school tomorrow. I have three attending right now but between the weather and being sick I opted out.

    At about 3:20 yesterday afternoon, saw a black Quattroporte (GTS I think?) on Peace St at West St. Also saw a black Audi RS5 in the Whole Foods parking lot as I was leaving the store, at about 5:00.

    This streak of weather is unpleasant. I think every square inch of the 430 has been cleaned, waxed or polished within an inch of its life since it is garage bound due to ice, snow, slush and the hilly terrain at my house.

    Black 430 just went screaming past my work on Statesville Rd. in north Charlotte. Turned to look out the window expecting to see a street bike and it was the 430. The hairs on my arms are still standing up on end :)

    Couldn't really get a good video of the P1 at C&C....Too many people and my hands were actually frozen solid...But this was my attempt, thanks again for bringing it. Was completely worth the drive and standing in the cold.
