    You mean your car still isn't ready? What were they doing to it? The Green one that my son and I saw when we were there LAST Thursday afternoon was out in front of the Service doors next to the West side showroom windows. I thought that, after you had mentioned here that you were supposed to pick your car up that next day, (last Friday) That the one outside in front was your car waiting to be picked up.

    You know....I just don't get it with these "High End" Car Dealers that leave your car outside in the elements for weeks on end until it's finally worked on. As if they really don't give a sh*t about YOUR investment....That is, until it's time to pay up....

    Anytime I have called to make a service appointment, with ANY car that I've owned. (I take alot of pride in my Cars, I Take good care of them. And I keep them very clean. And I expect the people that Service my car to do the same.) So I always ask them when EXACTLY do they plan on actually working on my car. So then I can bring it there, on THAT DAY, and hopefully they'll put it inside and start working on it that day. Problem is, "out of sight, out of mind". And if your car isn't actually there. They start working on something else, and sometimes your car ends up sitting outside anyway!

    Sure, usually they clean it up for you when you pick it up. That's not the point...But WTF? I mean, I keep my car stored indoors always. Covered. Clean. And that should be the LEAST of all things that I should have to think about when I am paying exhuberant service dollars and usually end up waiting for well after the promised date. Kind of makes you wonder just what kind of place is it that doesn't care about somebody else's expensive property. You know?....

    Or when you go to an "Exotic" or "High End" car dealer and see $100-200K+ cars sitting outside all full of dirt and dust...(Ice and Snow in the Winter) WTF is that? "Oh Yeah! I want That one!!!" "Which one?" "The one with the least amount of crap on it!"....:) You can expect that at a Ford dealer...But not with very expensive pieces of fine Italian machinery....:)

    I think that the only "High End" place around that has the room to put your Baby inside, that I know of, anyway. Is Lake Forest Sportscars. Although, at their old place, they didn't have the room to do it either.

    They all should get a Steel Storage Building. Or a Canopy...Or even a freakin' Barrett-Jackson style Tent! SOMETHING! ANYTHING!!

    You did? Way cool!

    So far I only knew one person (my neighbour) who flew on it past the Mach 1 level. In a way it is funny: I have flown 1,000 km/h in a regular airplane (strong tailwind across the Atlantic), but at 40k feet, so it isn't really Mach 1. :)

    Charcoal Grey or Dark Silverish looking Carrera GT headed Eastbound on Butterfield Rd. at Meyers in Downers Grove/Lombard last Evening around 6:30PM.

    5 Minutes later, a Gold, late '50's or early '60's Rolls headed the same way on the same road.

    The Parents of my old buddy that passed away used to use the Concorde every time they flew back and forth across the pond. That thing was the "Lamborghini Countach" of the Jet world....:)

    I came across this ad for the Swiss Lottery. Thought it was kinda funny. Think about the spotter's reports in that neighbourhood...
