    Might be one of the rentals on the island. I rented a black 328 there before I bought mine. But, I believe on the old board there was a discussion with someone who had a red 328 or was going to buy a red 328 in Honolulu.

    Hey, another Hawaii guy. I think you, Alan, and I are the only ones from Hawaii here... and Alan posts here even less often than I do.

    **EDIT** Oops, I forgot about Allen on Maui. ...and I also noticed Dave@EFI is here too.. he's another Hawaii dude.

    Haha. Mule, I most likely drove that same 328. '89 black/tan GTS, symbolic plate frame? Such an awsome time! I loved it. Pretty much drove it around the whole island. Such wonderful roads/scenery. It was in the summer of '01.

    i'm thinking there should be a hawaii spotters thread somewhere. they don't have their own regional section, but i spend a lot of time in hawaii.

    it'd be nice to see some hawaii ferrari owners around. my brother always lets me know when he sees exotics since i'm not there at the moment. he's already seen a black 360 Spyder in Hawaii Kai, and a yellow Murcielago in downtown Honolulu.

    I've seen the black 360 for rent in Honolulu. Along with a yellow 355 next to it. They rent them from a gas station of all places. There is an F-car rental place in Waikiki also. Other than that, tons of NSX's and a bunch of Z06's. American muscle seems to be very popular over here. There are some really nice cars in the efiunlimited club. Dave contacted me a few months ago, and seems really nice. Maybe when I find some more time, I'll try to hook up with those guys and see what they are all about. Never really been big into car clubs, but we'll see.

    last time i was there, summer 2003, they had a yellow 360 for rent. i guess they recently picked up the black 360 spyder? i still see that TdF blue 355 Spyder they rent and a red 355 spyder everytime i'm in waikiki. i've also seen a few tourists abuse the cra p out of the rentals.

    they aren't all rentals, the red 355 spyder owner lives at the end of kapiolani park. it's actually more like diamond head. but i remember driving around the lookout point and seeing him pull his 355 out of the driveway. it sounded gorgeous.

    there is also another red 355 that you might see around kahala. that is actually my dad's friend car. there's a silver 360M owner that lives near him in kahala too. lots of F-cars if you know where to look i guess.


    btw, i'm also a huge Rover fan, my dad got a Disco S2, and a Freelander. they'll take us anywhere that hawaii has to offer.

    saw my first 360CS in honolulu today, it was scuderia rosso and it was in hawaii kai.
    edit: i saw an original porsche 550 spyder the other day too, i figured it was worth mentioning with the fcars.

    Greetings from Da Big Island. I've seen only two Ferraris over here: a red (naturally) Testarossa in Hilo and a silver 348 ts between Kona and Waimea. As for me: Ferrari-less at this time but got the hots for a Dino.

    Did you happen to go to the exotic car show a couple weeks ago? I think they had most of the F-cars on the island there. I rarely see any since I moved away from Waikiki. I usually only haver mine (308) out on the weekends at night, so I doubt you'll see me.

    I live up on Hawaii Loa Ridge, and besides my red 355, I know of at least 4 other Ferraris up here, may be more.

    Wow... in my years there I only saw a black 550 (on Kam at Sunset), red 348 and a handful of 308's - 3 red, 1 black. The black 308 lived at Waimea (that little subdivision around the Western ridge), and a red 308 somewhere down Ka'a'awa way.

    I also spotted the rental 360 in yellow around a few hotels, etc. Also a bright red Murcielago on Nimitz... my friend spotted it too - he said that the older gentleman driving it had curbed the sides pretty badly [already]... Murci's had just come out.

    Then again, I lived in La'ie and was only in town maybe once or twice a week. And even then did most shopping at Mililani WalMart and Waipio Costco.
