    Saturday morning, Silver Porsche GT2 at a rest stop on 95 NB in lower CT.

    Sunday late afternoon a Silver 550 Maranello (I bet the same one John saw) on 95 SB in the Bridgeport area. We followed him for a while, and so did a black (ahem) "tuned" Civic that was interested in racing. The Ferrari driver passed.....but then, later on, when it started to rain it looked like he was trying to avoid the raindrops. My wife said the driver looked like Woody Allen.

    I saw a black 360 Spider tonight at Tower Records in Paramus. I talked to the owner who was very nice and told me that he also had a 550, 355, and an Enzo on the way.

    Triple Black Mondial T at high end used car dealer here in Great Neck. Needs a little cleaning, but just beautiful. If it was a year from now, I'd be making a serious inquiry on it. My next car will be another Mondial, but a 3.2 or a T. Best value in Ferrari world, IMHO.

    Spotted a red with tan 360 coupe on rt. 202 heading North. Older man driving (50's). I think it had a vanity plate but I couldn't make it out but didn't appear to have the dash in it. Sweet ride.

    Erik, I was up on 202 this Saturday in my wife's 328 (red and tan). I missed the 360, where on 202 were you?
    Anyway, I'm an older man (grey all the way)

    Erik, I think I've seen that 360 before near Sullivan's steakhouse on 202.

    John, are you in that area or further up north in PA? I've seen a 328 near the Acme in the vicinity of the 202 bypass every once in a while. Wonder if that's you?

    I was working outside at Cavallo Autobody right on 202 about 3 miles before you get to west chester. I was about a mile up from where rt 1 intersects with 202. That is a pretty far trip from princeton how'd she run? Alex I still haven't seen you in the lotus.

    Erik, I wonder if John is referring to 202 in Jersey? I'm under the impression that taking 202 north might take you up there.

    The Lotus is in the shop for maintenance as well as a turbo upgrade. It'll be another two or three weeks before I get to see it again! Been gone for about three weeks already now. I'll have to meet you up at Cavallo one day, I still want to check that place out just in case anything ever happens.

    morning alxlee and Erik,

    Saturday we took the 328 to our mechanic and he put some injector cleaner in and said we should drive it about 100 miles. That's all I needed to hear in order to cancel anything I had planned.

    We drove south on 95 past the Phil. airport and then turned west. Was on route 30 for awhile, past Villanova (spelling) and then headed north. 200 miles put on in one day. We were in West Chester, 202 and route one. All over the place on Saturday. Actually past a red 308 on 30 near the college, blew my horn, but don't think he they noticed.

    Anyway, it was some great driving for one day.

    John

    Ya know, I just had to comment on this thread:

    I lived in Los Angeles last year for 7 months and it wasn't uncommon for me to see a handful of Ferraris PER DAY. It was unbelievable. It actually got to the point where seeing one was no different than seeing any other car. I also use to drive past a used car dealership in Marina del Rey every morning on my way to work that had a beautiful 355 spider for sale. I almost rear-ended a few people staring too long!

    Now, living in eastern Pennsylvania, I'm lucky if I see a Porsche 911 let alone a Ferrari! The only time I see anything exotic anymore is if I drive near Michael or Mario Andretti's house or drive down towards Philly...

    Erik -- they both live in Nazareth...right up the street from each other. Mario built and incredibly huge house back in 1996. I'm not sure exactly what cars they drive anymore...haven't seen them in a couple years. I know mario had an older Countach and Michael had a TR and I believe a 348...all red of course. When I was still in high school, Mario lived right down the road and I used to park in front of his house everyday. He was always a very nice guy and waved everytime I saw him. Michael is a different story...

    Spotted on Saturday the 15th:

    Red Daytona, 10 a.m. in New Canaan center

    Grigio Maranello, 1:30 p.m. on Indian Field Rd. in Greenwich, looked like Mass. plates on it. While picking up kids from birthday party.

    A very nice day running errands in the 400i. Got a few good acceleration blasts to, ahem, clear the passageways!
