    hey pr3par32die, i know you like to ride that bike of yours all around the city and burbs might i suggest you try heading west to Rivers Casino in Des Plaines on a friday or saturday night and check out the valet parking area out front, there are usually a few exotics lined up. i've seen atleast one nice ride every visit. so check it out if you get the chance.

    Oh. Okay. I was wondering.

    Okay. Maybe I'll check it out. Might be a little far for bike, better for a drive. Thanks for the tip!

    I counted a total of five Alpines at RA last weekend from various parts. They were all together with the R5 in the paddock. The fall festival gets great cars without the huge crowds at the BRIC.

    Techart GT Street (R). I'll have to check the rear-end photo I took. I don't think it's R. Look it up, though.

    Giallo modena Ferrari 430 spider around 1 driving south on O'Plaine Road, passing by Warren HS today. Sounded nice, though it was crusing. I think it had DL plates.

Also spotted there a few Vipers, 1 red and 1 white Pantera, a grey Gallardo spyder and a black Diablo SV. A red NSX spotted when I left the parking lot. And outside at D&M Corvette(North Ave.) a black Ferrari 550, red 355 spyder and red/tan 328 gts with polished/chrome oem rims. If you like cars and have never gone before- check out Mecum/ St. Charles show!!

    I've seen Enzos before at LFSC (black, a few reds), but got to see one driving for the first time- pretty cool.
