    I had no idea an F8 was in the area, I still haven't seen one in person yet.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Wow! I lived in Alabama up to 2018 and had no idea Huntsville had exotics like that. I saw a few in Bham, but not anywhere near that level.

    Where did you live? There’s been cars scattered all over Alabama for some time, but not until the past few years has the growth ever been photographed or talked about. I’ve been talking photos here and there to prove there’s some cool stuff around. There’s a lot more coming in the next year or so.

    I was in Bham and lived 5th ave south medical district for work. I didn't see any Fcars there, but did see a 550 Barchetta around Mountain Brook with 360 alongside. Other than that basically only saw Fcars (F40, Enzo, etc) at Barber Motorsports Park. I'd love to see that LaF color in person...

    That's a nice view from up there. Are there a lot of good mountain driving roads? Oddly enough I got contacted about a job in Huntsville yesterday...maybe I should consider. Lack of spirited driving roads in FL sucks.

    There’s a few up here I just happen to live next to. It’s so easy to just cruise around in South Huntsville near Hampton Cove.

    I actually live in Hampton Cove, but go for fun drives around the roads to Lake Guntersville State Park and then on to Everhart Pointe Overlook at Little River Canyon National Preserve. The back roads from Gurley to Skyline WMA firing range are also a pretty nice drive - just beware old lifted pickup trucks being driven beyond their limits and not quite keeping in their lanes on corners.

    The view from Belvins Gap Nature Preserve is very nice, but I've not found Cecil Ashburn Drive to be a brilliant driving road due to it being a congested commuter road with inattentive mobile phone users make half-assed attempts at steering vehicles. I've had to take evasive action a few times to avoid morons.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    I used to take my bike through Guntersville State park when I lived there. There are tons of back roads in Alabama if you don't mind exploring.

    Off-topic, but important! The white area on the map below means there is a 90% chance of a tornado within 50 miles of where you are! (In the purple area, the chance is 70%!) Highest chance today is from late morning thru late afternoon. Monitor the weather and prepare to take shelter!

    We barely missed a lot of the Tornadic activity. Crazy to see a Torcon of 9.

    No damage at all here, it was just a bit of heavy rain and gusty winds. Did you also come through unscathed?

    All the best,
    Andrew.
