    Ok, enough of this winter stuff, it's after the holidays and Feb. is here, so lets move on to Spring time and wishful dreaming of summer cruises.

    First car up, a little green beauty on Ogden. A new 2008 Lambo Merci Spyder, Verde Ithaca with black top and interior, for a fellow crusier. Boy is it sharp.

    Saw a silver V8 Vantage roadster out in the muck this afternoon. Actually I heard it, and then I saw it.

    This is not in the Chicago area, but I am from Chicago, so will post here.

    Arrived in Amsterdam on Sunday morning and spent the day walking around in the 45F weather trying to stay awake. A big change from Chicago weather. Could not spot anything all day long. Then on the train ride south, there it was, a silver Diablo on the highway. A good ending to a long day.

    Saw several Maserati QPs near 16th & Indiana on Saturday. Most likely coming from the auto show.

    God I don't see anything when I'm not downtown. Did see a 35th Anniversary Camaro today on 64, but that is barely worth mentioning

    I wonder which GTC that is. I know the "European Auto" brothers had a GTC in there for years. There aren't that many around.

    In case the owner wants to get rid of it, I know somebody who is looking for one.

    348 TB SS, my first Ferrari being unloaded this morning. Since it is fairly dry today, I did manage some laps around town. It's not going to snow next week is it?

    Idibus Martiis have arrived, time to make this underground thread official.

    Anybody up for some driving this weekend? I still see some wet patches, but maybe tomorrow might bring another chance.
