    I was out and about today (Flanders Road - Westborough) when in the distance I saw a very nice Giallo 360 and as it drove by me in the opposite direction sounded awesome. I thought to myself, here is someone getting a drive in before the snowing and salting starts.

    Within 2 hours of this wonderful sight, in another part of the state (Rt 117 Bolton/Stow), I see a Blue Pozzi 355 coming from the opposite direction. That color is so beautiful!

    I wonder how many other F-cars were out today that I didin't get to see??

    Brings up an interesting question. How many ferrari, exotics are around these parts owned by people who don't want to drive with other owners and/or shoot the breeze about cars? Neither of those ring a bell.
    Anyone here have friends with similiar cars but won't go for a ride?

    Alas, only "exotic" for about a 30 mile radius (Verell is closest). There are two Porsche guys and late at night i may see one of them having fun as i am during the summer. Alas, have never met him/her as we usually are passing each other at the time. If the guy is who i think it is, i went out with his ex-wife and met his son a while back so maybe it is best we don't meet.

    Enjoy the Walk,

    Had a beautiful, but all too brief ride in my 308 early this AM. I'd promised my son he could use the lift, so I had to move my car out of the garage & into the CoverIT shelter.

    Once I started it (reconnected the battery & it fired up 1st twist of the key after sitting since Christmas!) & pulled out of the garage, I just couldn't put it away immediately.

    Remembered my new eyeglasses had come in & decided that a quick run into town (3.5 miles each way) would be a good way to give the battery a quick charge.

    Sure glad I did. Damn, every spring the same thing, I forget just how much fun a 308 is to drive! My winter driver Rx7 TurboII is nice, but at 130K miles, it's suspension is getting a little tired.

    Good thing I knew snow was on the way, otherwise it would have been hard to leave it to go on vacation.
