    hello,

    was downtown chicago this afternoon. there was this guy in a pimped out red 360 modena spider with blingd out gold wheels, gold pinstripes everywhere and a gaudy rear wing. it was 60 degrees out and cloudy. the guy had the top down and wasn't wearing a shirt. he drove back and forth from clark and n. michigan. heading north as so to stop at every red light. my fiancee and i were on foot from oak street to watertower place, and came across him three or four times. bleach blond hair, gold chains and did i mention, no shirt? all this while cranking "journey" from his stereo.

    freak.

    LOL! Yeah, I agree with you on that! I am somewhat newly single again. But have just been too busy to get out. I live just down the street from there. Maybe we need to get a bunch of us to meet over there sometime. I always see Exotics parked over there.

    I saw a red 308GTS w/ the top off somewhere in the Euclid/Wolf area today. Guy with a baseball cap driving it with the top off.

    I love being on the road in a strange town and seeing Ferraris.

    Only if that car was meanwhile airlifted into London.
    :)

    Just back from a few days there. That town is full of exotics. Actually come to think of it: A Jag, AM, RR or Bentley is probably not considered an exotic over there anymore. :)

    Correction: There is. I drove by there yesterday and it is still in the same exact spot. Red 360 Modena, right in the front, immediately to the West side of the building...unless they keep moving it around.....But thats the last place I saw it, too.

    Speaking of which....Driving past that place, (Luxury Motors) along Ogden Av., there is always a slight "gapers delay" from everybody slowing down to look at all of those cars....And, I do mean ALL OF THOSE CARS!!! They have cars parked on every square inch of space everywhere....across the street. On the surrounding side streets. Down the Alleys. In parking lots. In empty Intermodal Containers....(O.K., I just threw that one in....:) ) Everywhere!!!! I'm surprised that Downers Grove doesn't come down on them about that. They need to move to a bigger place. They actually incorporate Ogden Av. into their "lot space" and are always walking back and forth across the street as if it is part of their sales lot.

    D 'oh!

    Yesday, I saw a beautiful, silver 360 spider about 3:30PM in Williams Bay with the top down. Looked like it had some really sharp aftermarket wheels.
