    LOL! You mean to tell me that they now have a website totally devoted to spotting Exotic Cars?....:)

    Just don't take any pix of cars parked in Hotel/Motel Parking Lots.....I'm sure that the Car owners wouldn't be really happy about that....:(

    Orange Lamborghini Gallardo tonite at 7:20PM. As it was heading in to the Yorktown (Lombard) Movie theatre. Those are some very beautiful cars, IMHO. Sounded great, too. :) Can't wait to see a Spider version "in the Skin"....:)

    Holy crapola! I was in the burbs today, driving down County Line Road in Hinsdale, when my wife said "Cool, check out those cars!" Parked in front of one of the estates was a pair of Gallardos, one yellow and one orange. Really cool looking!

    Hmmmm....I wonder if the Orange one was the same one that I saw in Lombard/Oakbrook last night?

    Down along there somewhere on County Line Rd. I believe is the home of Bill Jacobs, Jr. of The Bill Jacobs Automobile Dealer family. And those guys are VERY SERIOUS Automobile Collectors... (Please note that I purposely didn't use the word "Car".....) I don't know exactly where the house is. But I saw ads in Hemmings Motor News a few years back, (Thats where I saw the address) of him selling off a few of the Automobiles and a few other Vehicles from his Collection. They were some pretty nice vehicles at that. Gee....I would like to see the ones that he kept....:)

    I did see a big house down along there once with a Red 246 Dino and a Red 308 out in the Driveway a couple of years ago..I took County Line Rd. down to the Frontage Rd. over in Willowbrook/Burr Ridge to a Route 66 Cars Show that they used to hold over there along that original stretch of old RT.66 by Del Rhea's Chicken Basket. Not sure if they still have that show. But it was a fantastic one. LOTS of cars of all kinds. Not just your typical Muscle and old Car fare. Some Ferrari's, and other Exotics, too...I wonder if it was the same 246 that was following me along Ogden Av. in Hinsdale last Summer?

    I told the current owner what he was getting into when he bought it; though the clutch was good then.

    It's not my problem anymore.....!

    Grey metallic Lotus Exige going south on LSD last night.

    Not sure these Lotus qualify as exotics anymore since there are so many of them around. But then again it is just one absolutely awesome looking car. Lotus hit the nail on the head with that design.
