    That's right....I apologize, Norm. Well, here is the website where it is at. It is a 1995. 1 of only 75 ever made. Fly Yellow with Black interior. This site also has a photo of the P3/4 Enzo that Rick saw at Monterrey.www.euromotorsport.net

    Also, here are a couple of other cool looking Yellow Supercars. Personally, I wasn't a big fan of Yellow sportscars. But they seem to be kind of growing on me....:)

    First. A 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish in Fly Yellow/Tan. I like it.
    www.deserteuropean.com Must have been sold, too. It is in the current issue of DuPont.

    Second. A 1994 McLaren F1 in YellowTitanium/Black. Again, this looks really cool IMHO. www.siliconvalleyautogroup.com

    O.K. I just checked that site and the 512M was sold. But it still shows pix and has a description of the car. Could it be the same one that Chelle saw on the flatbed....? I'd be willing to bet that it was. Being as there were only 75 made, how many were in Yelow???

    Frank,

    Thanks for the links.

    I still really like the way the M looks in yellow (not a huge fan of the wheels), but this is going to have to stay on my wish list for a while- too many other things ahead of it on the list.

    All the best
    Norm

    Sure thing, Norm. Yes, I do agree with you. I do like that car in Yellow. It has a very unusual rear end,too. The ribbed, finned, "Cheesegrater" style fins across the back, but with the "usual" round Ferrari taillights sticking through on each side.

    But, I am always a fan of Pop Up headlights. Even though they are a somewhat dated thing of the 1970's and '80's, I still like them. But, I don't know why they just don't incorporate some sort of a sliding headlight cover door instead. It could just slide up over the clear headlight covers and disappear into the fender when the headlights are on. Then, slide back down and kind of push up into place over the headlight covers when they are off. Or have the option of leaving it in the fender when the headlights are off, too.

    They could use that on many of todays cars.

    I looked at the last second, but it looked like a 3x8 heading westbound on Euclid road right by 53 in Rolling Meadows (right past Arlington Race Track). Anyones?

    That's the route I take to Ed's shop.

    Very likely. It was a red coupe. It would've been around 7pm maybe?
