    Naw, wasn't me as the storm clouds scared me off but I was in that area with the H2 which has often been mistaken for an Enzo...

    I was shocked to see a red F430 on the same intersection F355 mentioned today, Saturday, at around 1:30 pm. Awesome plate reading "Pronto." Once again Im in the H2 so didn't bother to yell, " Hey, check out Fchat!" Oh well.

    Reminds me of my military times: We used to say that in the Army when answering our internal phone system. I guess if you don't have that association, it is actually cool.

    I was cruising Southbound along York Rd. in Oakbrook/Hinsdale,around 3:30PM-ish. As I was coming up to Ogden Av.,I saw a Red 246GT ahead,in the Left turn lane to go East on Ogden. After making the turn,I caught up with him. I was in the left lane,he the right. We were side by side as we passed Continental. Then,he got behind me. One of the few times that I actually HAD a Camera with me.... I turned into Bemis Woods,hoping that he'd follow me in so that I could check that baby out. Get some Pix. And tell him about FChat,and F.O.C. But,unfortunately,he did not follow....:( Oh well....maybe next time....

    Spotted red 308 in Deerfield getting onto the highway, whatever its called there by True Value and where the porsche and Audi dealers are. Also spotted a badass 550 barchetta-never thought I'd see one of those on the road. Awesome, just awesome. That was in Glencoe.

    Red 308 in the parking lot of a strip mall on Cumberland, between Lawrence and Foster, about 7:30 tonight (Sunday). I couldn't make out the license plate. One of you guys visiting Dave?

    Weekend spottings of note (all on Sunday):

    Red 360 Spider near Chestnut & Rush parked across from a place where I took my grandmother for brunch today.

    Red 348 Spider on Michigan Ave, revving the hell out of his engine :)

    Storm Titanium Elise on Lagrange in Orland Park.

    Black 355 Spider on 171st St & Oak Park Ave. in Tinley Park (if it's someone here... I waved at you from my bright green Elise).

    Lots of squids out on sports bikes today... I'll never understand how you could be stupid enough to ride around in shorts, flip flops, and a t-shirt... without a helmet. I saw at least 10 people on Hayabusas who looked like they had riding skills more suited to a pedal bike. Pathetic.

    Yellow f1 targa in HP.

    Red F430, first one I;ve seen on the road. i thought it was a 360 when I first saw it from a distance, but as i got closer I realized it was a 430. Looks very similar from the front at a distance. Awesome car, awesome sound. My friend says he has seen it in Winnetka, I saw it in Glencoe. I am wondering if its the same guy who has a black/red maranello, porsche turbo, db9 and a cls.

    I call them organ donors. In Europe bikers wear helmets and kevlar reenforced suits. For a reason.

    Yea... as do I and all of my friends.

    I cringe every time some guy approaches me to tell me he's going to buy a 1000cc+ sports bike for his first motorcycle after hearing that I ride. It's to the point now, however, that I don't even bother telling them what's wrong with that... because they never listen anyway.

    Switzerland requires two years on a motorcycle not bigger than 125 cc for first time riders. After two years you can apply with a machine of 250 cc and bigger. Makes a lot of sense to me. I had a 125 Honda, a 250 Suzuki and a 350 Condor (Swiss Army motorcyle) so far. If anything I'd get a 600 cc, that sounds about like the right power/weight ratio. 1000 cc is just nuts unless we're talking touring on a goldwing.

    Hmmmmm.....Wonder if it was our Friends from last years Hooters Concours?
    Last Summer,my Son and I went to the Italian Rest. on Milwaukee Av. for the Car Show. On our way home,we took RT.53 and saw a Yellow 308GTB going Northbound into that same exact area that you just described. Probably the same Car.
