    Silver 360 Spider with Challenge grille heading west on I-10 in Biloxi, MS today at around one o'clock. I know it's the wrong section but the South Central section doesn't have a spotter's thread so I thought I would share it here.

    Kelly, I though that might have been you! I was on my way to a friends shop to do cam belts. Did them in a little over 4 hrs.

    I grew up in Timberlane and my parents still live there. Do you know who bought the 575?

    I did see a red 360 on Colony Rd. and Timberlane Dr. a while back, but I didn't know who it was. That was the only time I saw it so I figured it must have been a visitor.

    I assume you have a 328. I have been driving Corvettes for years but I have always wanted a Ferrari. I just sold a '91 ZR1 and I am currently looking for a 456. I would buy a 355 or 360, but I have two children and I think the 456 would be more useful.

    Yep, the 360 had to be a visitor. I probably know him, a friend of mine lives in English Turn and he has clients in Timberlane. I had the first Ferrari in the neighborhood until a guy got a red/tan 89 348ts. He sold that car after less than a year and now the guy with the 575 is sportin' around. Not really suprising since the average age of the households in TE is so high. ET, now that is an exotic spotters paradise. Probably 6-7 Ferraris (TR,360,512BB,355,308,612,456) that I know of, plus one Countach and a Diablo SV (I believe). Not to mention a Lambo LM002 SUV!

    I live in Stonebridge and I have not seen any Ferraris in my subdivision. But we do have some newer 911s and a few vipers. A good friend of mine that lives close by just bought a new black Viper coupe.

    Nope, haven't seen any Ferrari's around Stonebridge either. Believe it or not, there was a guy with a Red/Tan Mondial Cabriolet that lives in Woodmere. Saw him many times when I worked at the Bohnzone. Don't know if he's still there. Definitely NOT a Ferrari neighborhood.

    I have seen that Mondial several times on Lapalco by Woodmere. I also have seen a yellow 355 spider on Lapalco that I heard lives in Barkley.

    I forgot about yours. I was referring to one on the way here. I already have my eye on another 355 Spider, sorry.

    There is always a red 355 with shields parked in downtown Hammond. Today it is at the corner with Paris Parker. Hopefully I will get to stop and take a closer look one day, I'm always driving past it.

    I got to walk past it tonight coming back from a play so I was able to get a closer look at it. It is a gorgeous car.

    At about 5 PM today I was on I-10 East, between Carrollton and Broad working an Auto theft case when a blue F360 Spyder flew by. Whoever it is, NICE CAR.

    Yesterday---Purple Lotus Elise Heading East on I-10 in Biloxi, MS. Also, silver Viper GTS with black stripeds heading east on Highway 49 in Ocean Springs, MS. Both spotted in late afternoon.

    Today--Nissan Skyline heading west on I-10 in Biloxi around 1:00.

    I know these aren't real exotics, but they are still nice cars and you gotta take what you can get in Mississippi. ;)

    Last year I saw a red Porsche 959 driving around Mobile, AL--anyone know who it is??
