    Despite our woes with the popo yesterday, we did have a very cool sighting...

    Dan (gallardo), Baily (NSX), and I (360) are lining up at start of the west side highway @ 56th st to do a quick northbound run, and we see a black 911 turbo come up behind us. "Cool," I thought, "another toy to play with." So Dan waves at the 911 and tells him to follow, the light turns green, and the four of us do a nice little sprint take the 72nd street exit.

    Great quick little run, and as we pull off, the 911 pulls alongside us and screams to Dan "Nice gallardo!". We look inside, and guess who's driving......

    ...BEN STILLER! We give him a thumbs-up, he flashes me the peace sign and pulls away.

    Nice driving Fokker!

    Screwing around with black Galardo on service rd of LIE, exit 50-51 last night. I've seen this car before, or should I say heard it before. Quite loud! A Ferrari with tubi sounds more musical to my ears than the Galardo. Too many cops on the service rd. Been nailed before not in the Ferrari, in one of my other cars with a k-40.

    maybe he wanted a daily driver, the porsche is faster and MUCH more reliable then a 360. and if you watch the video he came in second, he couldn't catch the lambo and he walked away from the 360. the nsx wasn't even in frame :)

    The reason he doesn't have a Ferrari is b/c he doesn't like how the salesman treat people. There have been so many stories about them acting "snobbish," that he doesn't want to work w/ people that just look at the car as a high end vehicle for rich people but at the fact that it is a Ferrari and is a a true piece of art. (This does not refer to all salesman, but some guy on f-chat met him and they discussed it.)

    i read that somewhere on fchat too....

    but....he doesnt have to deal with the salesmen. he can just send over a little lackie that works for him to go and buy a f car at the dealership for him. i think that was a bull$hit excuse Leno gave the dude.

    My experience of Ferrari salesman is that they are always knowledgable, and helpful. Go to Rally Motors. The worst sc*m bags in the Industry. It takes 30 minutes before a salesman walks over to you w/an attitude. Leno sucks anyway. He's not even funny. What guy who is a car collector doesn't own at least one Ferrari? He's trying to make a statement and "us" Ferrai guys think he's a moron! Thats why I watch Letterman.
