    The regular spotters thread hasn't been touched in over a week...! This is bad...!

    So yesterday, i finally saw a Ferrari after who knows how long since the last time i saw a Ferrari on the streets...

    i was on Sugarloaf Parkway around 4:20pm on Sunday and i saw a red Challenge Stradale going the opposite way... i was driving away from Killian Hill, the CS was going towards it... If it was anyone here, i was the nutcase in the red Sebring convertible honking my horn and flailing my free arm like a dork... :)

    you have got to be kidding me.
    I see them all the time, in fact so often I don't list them much anymore.
    I honestly see about 1 a week on the road.

    It obviously depends in what part of town you drive. Here in Cobb County I've seen other Ferraris on the road only twice in 8 years!

    With all the large homes built recently in East Cobb, you'd expect more high-end cars, but as I travel on roads like Roswell, Sandy Plains, Old Canton and East Piedmont, I seem to have the only Ferrari people ever see.

    You have obviously never come by my store! You are more than welcome to stop by and say hello and check out some cars. You are only 5 miles from us.

    Black 308 spotted in the Kroger shopping center on Mars Hill in West Cobb Friday around 6 P.M. And here I thought I was the only Ferrari in West Cobb.

    Great grocery getter by the way.

    8-6 @ ~3 P.M. Beautiful silver 360 headed north bound on Cobb Parkway/US 41, crossing over Mars Hill. Tag was still FoA. Driver in a white wife beater shirt (my wife got a kick out of that).

    And who said there were no Ferrari's in Cobb!

    He was obviously lost! Just kidding. I can't believe that you guys don't report more cars over in the Buckhead area. there are a ton of those cars down there as well as the riverside drive area. If you frequent that side of town you would have to see them.

    Last evening, a silver Maserati coupe headed westbound on Cobb's Roswell Road passing East Piedmont. It had a dealer tag, but the dealer was not FMoA, so the car was almost certainly pre-owned.

    First F430 I've seen on the road in greater Atlanta!

    This afternoon at 2:50, turning left from Main St onto Academy St in Alpharetta. The car appeared to be in Grigio Titanio.

    I was at the light on Academy, westbound. I beeped my horn (I was in the 328) but the driver did not acknowledge. Anyone on the forum?

    I think I just saw this same car tonight, sometime around 6 PM. Intersection of Stilesboro and Mars Hill. White drive out tag from a dealer whose name escapes me now. Windows were tinted very dark so I could not see who was driving it.

    Saw a red 512 TR when I was coming back from Athens today at 5:00 on 85 South. Cobb plates. He was going really slow but I think his exit was coming up.
