Its funny because a year or so ago I thought they were pretty rare. All of a sudden I am noticing a TON of them just about everywhere. I can only point out one locally since I saw him two times in Barrington. As for the rest, well I see a new one everyday. And it seems that the old ones with ether the Red or Gold paint get the best treatment and are absolutely spottless while the other colors tend to be run down, beat up, and just generally not that well taken care of. Occassionally you will see one of the other colored cars in spotless condition. I guess people who perceve a car based on its color just treats it a certain way, red is assocated with a sports car so it gets the special treatment.
The Red/Gold are very hard to find and when they are found they are PRISTINE. Im talking about the 95 and older ones.
