    Thank you! :) If the cars aren't driving, I try to put interesting music.

    Red 430 Spider N then S bound on LSD at 1pm.

    Orange Gallardo Spider S bound on LSD less than a minute away from the 430. Coincidence or meet?

    I can’t compete with Badges spots but today I observed the following all on Ogden or 31st street in Oak Brook: Red with white stripe Viper, Bentley Continental, Quattroporte, black ’88 Porsche 911 Cab., and a red with white ’57 Vette that had three people in it. Were these three seaters?

    I doubt it, haha.

    Today I sat in an Aston DB9 Volante in Wilmette near the lake and saw a Bentley Continental GTC in Evanston @ Edzo's.

    Those were my thoughts. The music is rather... cartoonish? :eek: I kid, I kid!

    Anyways, back on topic. I was photo shoot location scouting in the city today and just happened to have my SLR. It's a horrible obstructed picture, but a picture nonetheless.

    Silver 360 around 2pm.

    I changed the music, sounds a bit techno-ey now.

    Saw a RED GTR R-35? I think that's what it is, the new one. At a BP in Skokie near the mall.

    Much better now.

    You could even use a "video stutter cut" technique with that music.
    My video editing software has the option to cut footage into very short bits and reassemble them randomly like a music video. Might be more interesting than the linear flow around the car.

    Thanks. That sounds cool! What do you use? I use Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0

    Studio DV from Pinnacle

    Very user friendly software but quite powerful under the hood. I'm no big fan of Adobe Premiere, too complex for my taste.

    At any rate, it is not so much which program you use, but which one you are comfortable with.

    Nice. True. I've gotten really used to Adobe and it's layout and I really like it, easy to use for me.

    In Niles tonight I saw a white Bentley GTC and near Niles West what looked like a 911 GT2 996 or could've been a turbo, but I think it was a GT2.
