    If it was a red one, I believe he/she lives in either Pinehurst or somewhere near there because I have seen that Testarossa several times up and down US1.

    Gorgeous red 430 Spider here in Greenville, travelled out of downtown and exited at Laurens Road/ Stone Avenue. License was B JUP or B UP or something like that. I was sitting in front of Wyatt Realty School and watched him dissapear(slowly, didn't get much of the sweet sound). Any id?

    The one I keep seeing has only the drivers side mirror so I'd say Testarossa on it.

    Does anyone know anything about the Mondail Cabriolet with a Roll Bar I saw a few days ago running around Cary?

    The onl Mondial cab that I know that had a roll bar is Lou Menditto's old car that we built a custom, bolt-in bar for. I didn't realize it was still in the area.

    Maybe Lou will chime in here...

    As I was walking around my Hotel at work today I noticed a Rosso Corsa F430 Spider 6spd Ferrari sitting in the parking lot. The Owner was with his friend next door eating lunch at the Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits. I had to take a pic of the car though.

    I traded the rollbar to a friend quite some time ago. He has an older Mondial (QV, perhaps) that he has done a lot of work on and is enjoying the heck out of . The car is red with black interior. Peter's shop did a great job on the rollbar for me and it was always a real conversation piece at club events. I loved being able to bolt it in for the track event and remove it for the concours :) Compared to the prices people quoted for a rollbar for my 360 nowadays, the old Mondial rollbar was a bargain and allowed me to run in any event.

    Then it must have been your buddy because it was an older model that was red with black int. Black padding on the roll bar as well. Sounded sweet too! I was three cars behind him but driving an F650 20 yard Dump Truck... no match for him in the acceleration game. He was gone before I hit 2nd gear. :D

    Continuously see a (previous body style) silver Bentley Arnage Red Label, most likely coming down from the mountains, usually in the mornings. Anyone have any ideas as to who it is?

    I speak with my cousin who is an attorney on Hilton Head Island almost everyday and twice now he has seen a red F40 driving around normally in traffic. For anyone that knows the HHI area (I certainly do) then you know it is not a place one passes through, rather it is one's final destination. It is so far out of the way off I95 and goes to nowhere else, that seeing a red F40 twice in six months on normal roads makes me thinks it's a local car to someone there. He saw it yesterday around 6:30pm on the cross-island toll bridge. Anyone knows who owns it?

    Last friday I saw two F430's, 997 Porsche's, Rolls Royce Phantom, etc. all on the back of two car carrier trucks, all loaded. I was on my way to Bush Gardens with a couple friends, and the trucks were headed south to North Carolina.

    Saw a blue 575M on Fairview in Charlotte. I was in a 996TT Cab with the top down and waved; he went by without so much as a look! Luckily I've never seen him at any sort of CAFE/FCA meeting, he didn't seem to be a chipper guy.
