    Knowing the guy who posted it, I'm guessing it's innacurate.

    Sure, you can always "ask" :)

    Actually, none of my cars are on that list. But, if you see someone driving around Des Moines with Colorado plates ----- odds are that would be one of mine :)

    The gentleman is a 'friend of a friend', so I'll pass that along. But, that car hardly ever gets driven ---- shame.

    Really? Wow, wouldn't have expected that.

    Saw a orange Lotus Elise when driving on the interstate by Cedar Rapids a while back.

    I was shocked as well when I saw them in Clinton! I believe they're owned by 2 doctors that own a surgical center.

    Yes, Virginia, there is a 'Santa Claus' --- but, trust me guys, there are no Enzos in Iowa.

    Perhaps your friend mistook a 430 (similar rear end, at a glance) for an Enzo? Or, there may be a "fake / kit-car" running around ----- but, there are no Super Ferraris (288s, F40s, F50s, or Enzos) in the entire state. I'm not saying that there aren't a few folks around with the means ($$$), but the cars simply aren't here.

    Not so fast my friend.......

    I personally know of 2 F40s and 1 F50 in Iowa along with a 288GTO (yes, real). I also know of a Daytona Spyder.

    In addition to that, a few good friends of mine in Iowa own a FCA National Concorso class-winning 328, a 550, a 430, a Daytona Coupe, and a 355 Spyder.

    You just aren't hanging out with the right crowd...... ;-)
