    The Silverstone 430 above is not Mrs. Hall's. Owner on here?

    I didn't think to ask the owner if he's on here or not. When I first saw it, I actually thought it may have been y'alls (can't remember which wheels yours has though). This was an F1 with tan interior and I believe a Tubi exhaust. Sounded absolutely glorious, nice to finally see some F430s around again!

    I saw this car a week or two ago near Terry Meeler's shop. This Silverstone/Crema is same as Janet's, also has yellow calipers. No vanity license plate on hers and standard wheels.

    two owner car, VA tags. Guy just moved to the area.

    This car was part of the Ferrari show stand at Geneva for the autoshow, and went through Jacques Swaters’ shop before being imported and federalized.

    I failed to get a pic of the car # to add to the 250 GTE thread...

    -Grey Lamborghini Huracan LP610 Spyder parked near Crabtree Mall a few minutes later.

    Wednesday, Nov 18th, in Raleigh:
    -White McLaren 600LT Spider in North Hills at about 6pm.

    Also saw a brand new dark purple refreshed Bentayga parked near Quail Ridge books. I don't think those are even on the market yet, does anyone know anything about it?

    Friday, Nov 20th, in Raleigh:
    -White 458 Italia on turning onto Glenwood from Creedmore at about 7:15pm. Looked like the same one as in post #3929.
    -White F8 and blue 488 Spider parked in front of Diamonds Direct a couple minutes later. No idea what they were doing there because literally no one was around and the parking lot was mostly empty.

    Hi Nicholas. I think we spoke last Friday evening. That Silverstone 430 is my wife's. We were at Vivace. By the way, she did find the diamond earring that popped out of her ear when she was putting her mask on as she got out of her car. That's what I was looking for when I came out and saw you taking a photo (I think). Nice picture, Keith

    Hi Keith, that was indeed me. Nice to stumble across an FChatter in the wild, and glad to hear your wife found her earring! A few more pics because the F430 is my favorite Ferrari (other than the F40).

    Great photos and thank you Nicolas. The late Terry Meeler did all four wheels for Janet last year. New caps and curb rash (my fault, not hers) ground out and totally resprayed. I bought that car for her for our anniversary 8 years ago and it has been essentially trouble free, and runs perfectly thanks to Terry Meeler.

    One of two SVJ Roadsters delivered to the Charlotte area in the past few weeks! Super cool owner, he gets a new toy every month it seems. He currently also has a white F8 Tributo and a purple 991 GT2 RS, as well as a number of other exotics.

    Not a Ferrari, but too cool to not post. Aventador S in Glenwood South last night at about 9pm with little brother hanging out behind it. Italian V12s are a rare sight around here.
