    I didn't see a spotter's thread on this section and a lot of the other regions have one. I figured I'd start one here too, especially since it's getting nice out. Perfect weather for cruising almost, at least in Maryland.

    So on monday was a silver 360 spyder, and just today was a red 512. both of them on 50 near annapolis.

    I could list some each day.

    I am on the direct flight path of Algar's test route, so on any given afternoon there is at least one, if not several nice examples being exercised more or less past my door.

    Yesterday was a 512TR and a 360. Friday was a 355, they roll by pretty regularly.

    The Enzo at speed was the nicest.

    Saw a beautiful red 355 Spider appearing to be heading towards the AC Expressway entrance at Rt. 73. I was just getting off the Expressway when I saw it heading the opposite direction with no one in front of it and about 50 cars behind it. :)

    Yep.

    First I saw it in the garage getting it's pre delivery service, then saw it on a test run. The car was unbelievable, looked much better in person than in any photo I've seen.

    Inside, outside, moving down the street, it was just beyond description.

    Okay, so it's not a Ferrari, but a black Maserati Merak was headed south on the Jones Falls Expressway in Baltimore yesterday between Northern Parkway and Cold Spring Lane at about 6:00 p.m. Haven't seen it around town before . . .

    Orange Diablo 6.0 on I-95 North in Delaware by rest area about 7:00 PM Friday April 9. Then about half an hour later an early 90's white Esprit in the vicinity of Perryville toll plaza in Maryland. I was in my 95 S4s heading to Baltimore.

    I have seen the Diablo several times in the area, in fact, I saw his car a few months ago at a Porsche meet. Is your 95 red? I saw a red Esprit parked by the Meyerhoff last night around that time, was that you? Is this the lambo?

    That could be the Diablo. That orange really stuck out! My Esprit is silver, so that wasn't me.

    I've seen that Diablo as well. It was about 2 years ago on 295 in New Jersey.

    Saw a red testarossa in Harrisburg PA yesterday, with NJ plates. I was right behind it for a bit...looked really nice. It was on Linglestown Road when I saw it. Quite an unusual sight around here.
