    5" of snow in the forecast for Monday morning's commute? Time to start a new spotters thread.

    Saw a black Esprit V8, probably a 2000 or there abouts Friday afternoon on Chicago Ave and Ashland. Really cool looking car and sounded good as well.

    Here's what I saw today. Its the new age baller on a budget and eco friendly Ferrari model. Aimed for the people who don't want to spend big money on a car but still want the Ferrari name.

    On a real note. This VW Beetle had 6 of these badges on it. 2 on each side, one on the front and one on the rear. Pretty bad.

    Acura NSX on Rt. 47 in Sugar Grove this morning. Not as exotic as a Ferrari spotting but given the weather I thought it worth a post.

    I saw a grey F430 with a challenge grill on the back of a tow truck while eating at Denny's in Highland park around 11:30 PM. :)

    You'd have to be an idiot to have it down. It snowed a lot by me.

    Top definitely up! White body, dark blue top. It was parked outside of Holy Name Cathedral and drove off after mass!

    Red F430 Spider spotted although I'm in Florida so weather's not a factor.

    Anyone driving a yellow Gallardo up and down 83 on Saturday? We had the dogs at Mays Lake park and saw the car making a few runs. May have been a test drive.

    If it was a Spyder and the driver was black (he prefers to be called Jamaican), I think it might have been Richard from Exotic Motors.

    Did it have aftermarket exhaust?
