    Exotic spotting ESP????? For some reason, on my way home from work yesterday I was thinking about how I would love to see a Lamborghini Countach on the road (don't ask me why!). Just daydreaming while I plunge a 3000lb car through traffic! This morning I'm drinking my coffee and my son says, "Hey Dad, we saw a red Lamborghini Countach going down Randall Road yesterday!".............cue the Twilight Zone theme!

    Anyway, if the car belongs to anyone here please PM me for return details. You apparently driving a car that is truly meant to belong to me! ;)

    Happy Father's Day to all the dads here by the way!

    Saw a 430 spider at my dads soccer game, turned out the owner was a guy on his team. He let me sit in it and get some pictures taken. car was black on black with yellow calipers. I even got to turn the engine on to roll the window down, and i could feel the power surge all through the car. Owner was extremely nice and we talked about cars some. this was my first tiem in a ferrari and it was cooler than i thought.

    That's sweet! Last summer a very nice owner let me sit in his 16M Scud, and it was awesome! I didn't get to do as much as that, but I enjoyed it!

    7 or 8 Lamborghinis, traveling east on Rt 38 in Geneva yesterday morning. A few Murci's, a few Gallardos, and at least one Diablo. Always a bit surreal to see so many, one after another...
