    Wow, I can't believe I saw a Red F430 in Cerritos!! It was parked around 5:30-6:00ish in the Ralphs parking lot on South St. It had new FOC plates. This is the first time I've seen a Ferrari in my city. Wonder if the owner is an Fchatter??

    As I was making a U turn in front of Bolsa Chica tonight in my F40, a red 430 passed by. I wish I was going straigh instead of turning in.

    I can't beleive what i just saw.... me and my freind went into a shopping center and there was a parked Murcielago Roadster, so i took a phone pic, admired the car (owner was cool) and left. About 20 minutes later as i was going down Ventura towards where it ends i see a 3 of Murcielago's (the roadster from the shopping center was there also) a Gallardo and a Diablo Roadster in a parking lot !!!! Then on the freeway another bright blue Murcielago probably making its way to the meet!!! Wow, awesome day so far!!!

    Jay Leno. Silver SLR, South bound 405, north of Sunset.
    I saw the SLR in the rear view mirror. It came up on me pretty quick on the right side. I was just about to go into boost when it pulled off the offramp and raised it's rear air brake. Jay looked over, smiled and waved......
    Man I love driving this car.....

    HOLY CRAP!

    Are you telling me there wasn't any traffic on the 405?! ;)


    ..I would've loved to see the outcome of that if he had stayed on course with you. But lets not fool ourselves, we all know he was scared!

    There was traffic. It didn't start to back up until Wilshire. It was funny how he got a run on me so that he could get beside me as he went up the off ramp.

    Today, Rossa 550 Maranello on Figueroa in Torrance. Beautiful car that made me want to run home and jump into the F-car. (Unfortunately, I drive my company car on work days...it's nothing close to a Ferrari).

    Friday, Nero 360 Spider on 110N toward Downtown L.A. Can't remember the plate, but black-on-black suits that car very well.

    Yesterday (Sunday) around 10:15AM PST, paper-plated Noble East-bound on the 101 right before the 405 (looks like he went 405 South). Honked and gave him a thumbs-up.
