    Friend has a better camera phone and took a pic for me too.

    The LP550 was from a dealer, I see their cars on Chicago Ave. very frequently. 360 had temp plates I think? The car was extremely dirty for a new purchase though. Not a bad thing.

    I think Bentley Gold Coast unload their cars on Chicago Avenue every now and then. I have seen several Bentley being unloaded there.

    Oh, lol, what I meant to quote was the license plate, I thought it was one of those metal plates or w/e, but it's a temp plate. Whatever haha

    Last time I was @ Bentley Gold Coast, an employee was giving a Bentley driver directions to their storage facility on Chicago Ave. All those cars on their website? All for sale. All in the city... most in that warehouse.

    Today: drove past "AutoArt" in Glenview. A few Bentleys, an Aston Martin DB9, a white Gallardo LP560-4 with dealer plates and a very cool looking Audi RS4 were all sitting outside in the parking lot. Very cool to see some real cars again. :)

    Haaaa, clever and cooll? Lol. I did go carspotting today, the first day in a long time, and it felt really good, but cold! I saw a Bentley Continental GT @ Room and board, used for commercial purposes, he was putting something in the trunk. I saw many MBs, Porsches, BMWs, and this one M3 cold started and revved the living hell out of it for me! It was awesome and I got it on film! Asked if I wanted a ride, but kindly declined, I had my bike. That video will be up soon! Amazing day. Also 3 911s and 4 Corvettes!

    Silver Mondial 8 on Rush. I think it was the same that was left in the snow a few weeks back.

    Other than that, the usual G SuperLeggera in front of the Colonial.

    I could probably guess it was Michael's car just from the description, but the picture confirms it. :) He's a member on here.
