    On the 101 EB just after the 405 at about 4:45 today, I rode past an SUV with the license plate FERARGO, painted in rossa corsa, with F badges, cavillino rampantes, and even scuderia shields on the fenders!

    Late middle aged couple on board. If it is anyone on this list, then I do apologise in advance, but boy, this thing was TERRIBLE! It just looked so wrong. It even had the 2x2 exhaust outlets in slightly stained stainless a la tubi. I WISH I had my camera.

    Then again, maybe someone else has reported this in the past...

    lusso64, there are a few of those roaming around newport. I've seen that red one a few times. They are LaForza's, they always had problems or something breaking down. Weren't good cars in my mind....

    quote and two pics are off ebay auction..

    "you are viewing a 1989 Ferrari LaForza SUV. The body design is by PininFarina. "

    Designed by Pininfarina (on a bad day, apparently) with the drivetrain by Ford and sold in their dealerships. Why anyone would go so far as to associate it with Ferrari is beyond me..

    now that I have recovered from the SUV experience, this evening's ride home was MUCH better.

    6pm 101EB near Tampa - Lambo Jalpa closely followed by a Daytona. Absolutely beautiful! Both cars appeared drivers, as they looked original and were dirty, and looked a little worn on the inside. Daytona was awesome.... truly...

    About 5 min later, a nice 412i (if there is such a thing after seeing a Daytona).

    Yestderday on the 101 in Camarillo a yellow Gallardo with black rims. Then Last sunday I think it was an original green GT40, not the Ford GT, a GT40! The only reason I think it was the real deal is because it was the Sunday that Concorso ended.

    Now for the Ferrari, a silver 360 spyder on the highway 1 streach in front of Point Magu.

    saw a black Murci on Melrose around 11 PM Sunday night

    also actually saw TWO Jensen Interceptors, one of which people were getting out of in a parking lot in Santa Monica, suggesting it was actually driven there...

    Cheers
