    There are a few others that I've seen around town, I don't know if the owners still have all of them still or not. But they include:
    Blue Gallardo - council bluffs, ia
    Red Diablo - two different
    Black Diablo - garage queen and never gets driven
    Black Jalpa - this one has been sold
    Green Murci - Saw this car 3 years ago filling up with gas on Dodge St right by Children's Hospital. Have never seen it since. Don't know if it is still in town or not.
    Olive Green Bentley formerly owned by Shaq. Has superman hood ornament and a lot of custom work done to it
    Red w/white stripes Ford GT40
    there are two different Heritage Ford GT40's
    Willie T. has a Mercedes SLR mclaren that is silver unless that is the one that you list.
    Maroon Aston Martin DB5
    Silver Maserati GT
    Goldish/Tan Maserati (??) that you can see near 120th & Blondo pretty much any day of the week.
    Bentley Continental GT -Brownish Gold color non-convertible
    Rolls Royce Silver Spur - Gold -older lady driving this one around multiple times
    Numerous Lotus Elise around town - 2 Blue, 2 orange, 2 yellow, red, silver
    Lotus Espirit - Black
    Lotus Espirit - Red

    I'm sure there are more that i'll think of later as well.

    Also forgot to mention:
    There was a purple Murci a few years ago at One Pacific Place. A young guy probably in his 30's got in and drove off. Don't know if that one is still around either. Kind of doubt it since it hasn't been seen since.

    The problem with having a Lambo or Ferrari in Omaha is that if you need it serviced, you have to transport it so far away in order to have it worked on. When I talked with the former owner of the yellow Diablo, who know owns the yellow Murci roadster, he mentioned that the diablo sat for almost 2 years because it had a mechanical problem and no one around the area that looked at it could get it fixed. He finally hauled it to Chicago to get it fixed so he could dump it. If their was a local exotic shop around this area, we would probably see a lot more driving around town.

    As far as the Enzo goes....

    I've heard the rumors about an enzo being in town. I have no doubt that there was an enzo here at one time, i'm just not sure if it still is. In 2005, there was one for sale by an older gentleman in his 60's or 70's that was from Omaha. I don't know if it actually sold or if the guy kept it.

    I think I saw the F40 Kit car last week, I did a double-take on it, but it was going east on Dodge as I was going West, on about 36th.

    Saturday morning on I-80 near 60th heading westbound was a Red 355 spyder. Must be a different one from the one jpohl402 lists as having been sold. Also saw saturday night around 10:00 pm near 144th and Maple a group of cars (mostly imports) with a few nice looking vipers mixed in. Found out that the owner of the white w/blue stripes GT40 also has a Hennessy Viper.

    Saw a Yellow Ferrari 355 spyder heading West on the Dodge Expressway this afternoon around 3:00pm. Also saw moments before that an all Black Bentley Continental GT (non-convertable) on 144th near Dodge. But the highlight today was that we now have another Lamborghini in town. Sitting at Charleston's around 2:30 was a yellow Gallardo spyder with intransits. Not as cool as the Murci roadster, but still one of the nicer cars in town. I've attached a couple pics of it for everyone as well.

    I saw a Ferrari F40 today on the way to work near 180th and Dodge. Was not a kit car, from what I could tell.

    Couple cars I have spotted in the last month--
    Old Ferrari (didn't get a good look at it, but I did see the badge)
    Acura NSX
    Ferrari F40
    Bentley Continental GTC (black)
    Orange/Black striped Dodge Challenger (new one)
    Blue Dodge Viper
    5x BMW M3s

    I live in West O, lately I have been seeing a ton of exotics, are there any types of exotic meets in Omaha? Like whiskey said, when and where?

    One of the Lotus owners is a friend.

    I don't know of any 'exotic' meets, just the usual rusty iron on 82nd and Center on Wednesday nights, soon to end for the year if it has not already.

    There used to be 'rust' meets north of Maple on 90th by Harbor Freight, and on 84th and Park Drive, not sure if they still exist.

    I am near 156th and Pacific.

    So it appears all folks have to do is hang out on 180th street between, say Q street and Dodge ?

    Gee, maybe we can set up a get-together at the now-closed Sheridan's north of Red Robon on Center ? (sic)

    The guys in St. Louis are meeting at Buffalo Wild Wings, we have a couple of them here in Omaha..

    Thoughts ?

    saw the F40 last week on Dodge near village point. It looked really good and was hard to tell if it was a kit car or not when driving by. Have also seen a dark grey Nissan GTR near Children's Hospital a couple of times this past month.
