    Black Lamborghini Gallardo turning from S/B Naperville onto E/B East Loop in Wheaton today at around 2:00 PM. I would have tried to get a pic but I don't think the girl in custody for retail theft in my back seat would have approved! :)

    Maybe she would have?

    Is she considered a spotter too? If so, let her post her 1st 'spot' on Fchat! :D

    The only thing she's been spotting lately is Dairy Queen and Wendy's!!! It's actually the second time I've arrested her this year. The first time, I almost had to call an ambulance to transport her because she couldn't fit in my back seat!

    I saw a red murcielago by devon and glenwood in an empty parking lot. Then a silver phantom drove down my street which is really unreal.

    A friend of mine had to arrest one like that for disorderly conduct.Somehow she fit in the back seat of his Impala but as soon as he pulled from the curb she started puking all over the interior and would not stop until he took her to the hospital nearby.
    She was not sick mind you,she was able to do it at wish...

    Gotta watch out for those Wheaton police officers. Badges2 got three of us at once! ;)

    He gave us a tour of the station, lock up, range and some special things obtained from some no so friendly folks. Very nice time, thanks for taking time to show us around!

    Icky poo, sounds like you'd be better off leaving her alone rather than letting her soil your cruiser!

    I just wanted to say thanks for visiting with me during your drive. It was a pleasure meeting all of you and I hope you enjoyed your visit to "the other side" ;). I also want say a special thank you for the wonderful gift and also for allowing my son and his cousin an up close and personal look at your cars. They probably talked about it in their sleep last night they were so excited! Here's just a couple pics that I took, hopefully I can post more later from my son's camera.

    I think the info on this event must have been lost somewhere in the thread. I knew nothing about it!!

    Yeah, I think Andreas took a pic of Michigan Ave being closed due to the Oprah show being televised there. Do ya think Oprah will be the next prez of the USofA?

    Personally, I don't understand why she's such a big deal!

    Granted it is a bit jittery as I took it while driving by and again this is the world' slowest POS of a camera.

    Saw the red double decker on my way home wondering why that was parked on the bridge until I saw the interview with her on TV.

    No. As long as she uses her influence on the current prez wisely, I'm happy: She mentioned 2016 ;), which is what this was all about. Showcase Chicago to the IOC.

    Coming back from Twin Lakes tonight and a 1960's 275 GTB in silver cruise past coming down 94 south. I would have loved a better look but we had a boat in tow :( damn sexy and had an amazing sound to it. Had wisconsin plates (i think). One of my favorite Ferrari's!
