    I had a different kind of spot today... I went to the courthouse to watch a friend argue a murder trial, and as I was walking in and going through the metal detectors there were extra guards who started piling around the detectors. I turn around to see OJ standing right behind me. We both went through the detector and an officer tells the guard to check "him" with the detector wand. Guard walks over to me, gestures for me to raise up my hands and starts running it down my arm when I asked, "Did he mean me?" Officer yells over at the guard, "No... him!" pointing at OJ.

    Silver 550 today on Sahara at noon. Also, around 1:30pm an odd sight: a RR Phantom and a white 997 GT3 zooming down Desert Inn at Hualapai together.

    Interesting thread.....I was just in Vegas a few weeks ago.

    Not being from the area I had to think it was a sad place to own amazing cars.....
    since there's no interesting roads in town. Am I wrong?

    You have to leave the sprawl and get out on to the mountain roads. There are some awesome winding roads through the parks and mountains, and long straights through the valleys.

    And another thing about Vegas, generally the culture here is into bling and nice stuff, so there are fewer "haters" about nice cars. As opposed to the abuse your car receives in otherwise sedate Winnipeg.

    Hawaii plates!! Holy ****! Wow that's awesome to hear. Anyway when I was in Vegas a couple of weeks ago I saw a very, very good amount of cars. 6 Phantoms (black,silver), 4 Gallardo Spyders (two white,orange,lime green), 2 Flying Spurs (both white,one completely modified), 2 Ferrari's, F430 Spider and Testarossa (yellow,red), Quattroporte Executive GT (maroon red), 2 Viper SRT-10 Convertibles (black,red), 2 Maybach 57s (silver,grey), and quite a few other nice rides. Most of these were spotted on The Strip. Saw the F430 Spider on Sahara, saw a Phantom on Tropicana. Saw a few others on I-15. One Gallardo Spyder was parked at the New York New York and another at the MGM. Hell of a time.

    well i was in Vegas for SEMA from wednesday til today. saw sooo many gallardos. but the highlights for ferrari on my trip were the ones i will have pics of coming soon. saturday morning I heard a beautiful sound, it was the sound of two 360 spiders, red, one had a loud exhaust on it and my god it sounded AWESOME. i have pics of both of those cars that i snapped later in the day in front of the venetian. i also saw and got a small video clip of a black F430 spider on black wheels rollin past the mirage. also earlier in that day i saw a red f430 coupe talking to what looked to be a saleen mustang beside it right there a lil ways in the drive at treasure island. why on earth did i leave vegas?????

    Red 360 spider on Rampart/Charleston a few minutes ago... shortly followed by a red Spyker! I've seen the Lambo LV cars a few times, but haven't ever seen a Spyker on the street. Sounded great - growly Audi V8.
