    OK, I was told to start a thread for all Chicago region spots and here it is. No more winter spotters when it's July or summer spots in winters spotters!! This is where to post ALL Chicago spots from now on.

    Since I got to start it and didn't see anything recently, I humbly post my ride!

    Hopefully, this is made a sticky so it's stays up top. Bring on the spots!!

    Saw a blue V12 Vantage on Lake Shore. I wish I could've gotten a picture! It was the most incredible color I've ever seen. Found this on the internet.. same color but it was not a roadster.

    Old now, but a vintage ferrari - 50s or 60s - turning onto tower by the skokie lagoons a week or so ago... Beautiful looking car. I love vintage ferraris, but don't know them enough to identify further...

    Weather was "iffy" and the Kennedy was supposed to be a nightmare. That's my excuse for not going to Ferrari on Oak Street, and I'm sticking to it. Did anyone here go?

    Pictures please.

    ChicagoFerrari, thanks for your comment. Best guess 3 to 4 weeks. The delay is usually customs in the US.

    Yellow 355 on the Kennedy north bound.

    Back from Winnetka cars and coffee. Not sure why, but this year the turnouts have been very average.
    Other than a DB4, 308 GTB, nothing exciting.
