    It’s there again today. Eating at Hubs? Maybe owns the hotel or one of the other businesses?

    I knew it had to be a flat plane crank. Listen to it rev!! Sorry but it sounds better than the 488 GTE or GT3 Turbo racecar although the Pista looks better.

    Very cool. We're incredibly lucky to have two great dealerships in the Chicagoland area.

    There was an Espada that sat along Algonquin Rd East of Elmhurst Rd for years. Vanished some time in the mid 90's.

    Very pretty car in person. Hope they will pull it out for a better viewing, but the SP2 looks great in black. Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
