    Last Saturday, I saw an orange Gallardo in Randall Rd. heading to Elgin. It was drizzling a bit that afternoon.

    4 ordinary cars in the LSD underpass at Irving park right this minute.

    What's so special about them? They're in 2 feet of water. Abandoned.

    As I was struggling home I came past the former storage place of my 308 and noticed how they lined up sand bags trying to keep the water from flooding the garage.

    Unbelievable. I live in southern Lake County, and work in Elk Grove Village. Not a drop of rain in either place.

    I was at Ed's yesterday, as they were preparing the Roller for the trip to the VA Hospital show.

    It poured for about 5 mins., then nothing. I headed home about 4 and the streets were dry.

    Was there again today as there was more to be done to the car. Saw Richard, and it looks like his 348 will be ready for the show. Yours too Andreas.

    He should: Not only is he working feverishly on Richard's, Skip's and my car, he is also trying hard to get his own roadster ready for the VA show: All he wanted was to install different belts and the result is, that he basically reworked the entire car. Sound familiar?

    Aka as the "domino effect" or the "while I'm in there" syndrome. :)

    If it was in the Palatine area, it was probably from Exotic Car Share.

    They're selling them now.

    When I got home tonight, I noticed some leakage under the Rolls; not unusual!

    Looks like maybe the left front caliper is blown, and also the left strut!

    Hell, I'll drive it anyway Saturday. I have to take the 'Little Old Lady'( no disrespect intended) for a drive around the hospital after the show, as I did last year.

    She is a Sweetheart; Ms. Barb, that is!
