    While me and my son were in Chicago this last weekend we spotted a beautiful 612 Scag at the Trump Plaza, we also spotted 3 Bentley's and a killer GT-3.

    You'll NEVER believe what I saw today, well, I know I didn't. I was leaving school when I got to the front entrance, about 20 kids were pressed up to the door watching. I figured it was a fight or something, but no. Everybody cleared and when I finally left the school, my school, driving away was a beautiful verde ithica LP640 Roadster. My jaw dropped! No one knew who it was, but I'll ask around, find out if it's a classmate of mine!

    Thanks. The streets were fine, but it is a bit unsettling to drive around with a dead battery: If I stall the engine, it is time to call the tow truck.

    Some nice spottings the past couple days.

    Fri at work we got a delivery of cars, and one of them was a Chip Foose Stallion Mustang. Looks pretty slick, sounds pretty decent.

    Sat I was out shopping with my wife, and we came across a really badass Mustang. It was a GT500 KR, possibly even a Super Snake. It had the right hood, wheels, sound mean as hell, the stripe on the side said GT500 KR. Saw that in the Target parking lot in St Charles on 64

    Sun I went up to my parents house, and saw a later C1 Corvette on 20 headed east in Elgin, '58-'60 I'd say. Saw a nice vintage curvy Rolls Royce ('50s?) on Randall headed south through Carpentersville, a yellow Gallardo and a yellow/black Viper GTS both heading south on Randall through Algonquin, although not together.

    Throwing ugly, cheap looking aftermarket wheels on $100k+ cars seems to be popular these days. I see it constantly in my neighborhood.

    I think I might have spotted the same car Sunday. He was turning onto Foster from LSD...he passed me traveling north bound on LSD. He has a aftermarket CS stripe on his front hood, but it was definitely a F430. I initially thought having a CS stripe on a F430 was odd, but it looks nice and gives it an Italian spirit. Sounded great!

    saw my first new California headed south on 94 near Racine Wisconsin this morning around 7:40 ... was red and they hopefully missed the speed traps about 2 miles south of where they were when I saw it.. oh, and sunday around 3:30pm I saw a while Gallardo headed north on 41 near highland park and a few minutes later a 430 headed south..on same road no pics as I was driving..an the Gallardo was really moving faster than I needed to do in Haley's truck
    Wish I took today off and drove around a little

    I'll ask about it tonight at work and call you. They'll most likely want to keep/sell the car in the Downers Grove store, like they do with all the nice cars. I'll look into it for you

    Oh, and I do have pics of the Foose, if anyone wants me to, I'll put some pics up here

    on the 430, yupp.... I think I was just north of "The Last Detail" when I saw it heading south....I think....spent so much time on road yesterday it all kinda blended together, but it was definitely after the Gallardo, and before Gurnee
