    Not really, that's all I'm gonna say!

    If Luxury Motors got ahold of his 360, they'd probably give it accolades. Don't believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see!

    Don't get me wrong, I like Tony.

    Now that's a real Pimpmobile. I almost bought one in the 60's, but ended up with an E-Type roadster instead.

    This evening I spotted a silver F430 spyder cruising down Lincoln Ave. just north of Fullerton. I stopped and stared (who wouldn't) and it gave a nice little exhaust blip.

    Hmm, I'm guessin' it was. Not too many blue Diablos around here, but it's just a guess on my part.

    Was it with a blue Murcie?

    Okay, not exotic, but DEFINITELY different, and I know it gets a ton of attention. Last night on the way home just off Grand avenue in Gurnee, not one, but two weinermobiles. Looks like one has suffered a little shrinkage tho - it's more like a Vienna sausage or something..
    They were parked in a hotel parking lot. Pics are dark, sorry, it was the best my camera could do in the dark

    Kinda sad tho - an Americon icon like this now built on a german built mini

    Saw a black SLR roadster (top up) this morning in river north. Just a few moments later I saw a red GranTurismo. I think that's the first I've seen around here. Although that is not my favorite color for that car.

    Maroon Lambo (Gallardo I think) at the corner of Plainfield Rd and Rt 83. Going too fast to see if it was a Gallardo or Murci. Seemed to be enjoying him/herself around the corner. :)

    Yesterday, Monday evening about 6:30pm, heading North bound on Barrington road, just north of Algonquin Rd. I saw a Red 348 that had just gotten rear-ended. There was a few cars on the side along with two Cook County Sheriffs. I couldn't see how much damage was done to the Ferrari though....

    Today headed north on 294 around Golf rd a nice older red Lotus Esprit turbo. I'm saying "older" as it had black rubber bumpers like a 308. Couldn't safely get camera out for a pic as the traffic was tightly bunched up due to construction.

    He asked me if i wanted to drive it but since im not in the market ..i thanked him and said no. But i do like how it looks ! Those wheels completly changed the car. Much better than the first wheels they had. Are you getting one ? And are you coming to LFSC for the Monaco GP viewing ?

    Wife liked the Bentley but did not want it for practical reasons and decided to wait for new "small" RR next year.
    Coming to LFSC with my boys...
