I've seen Diablos,550'sVipers, Testarossas, 360'* and 308'*

Never a 355.

My Camera had like 20 seconds of memory left so I couldnt get that good a shot. No big deal to those who live in rich neiborhoods. And my eyes were on the road the whole time. I promise

On my way to work, I regularly see a 911 Turbo, Maserati, Aston Martin, or Mucielago, all going the same way, but never on the same day. Could possibly all belong to the same person. Saw the Lambo today. None of them are more than 2 years old.

I saw a Pantera a few months ago. Wish I had my Camera for that. Looked kind of like a Countach. Thats a hell of a stable if its the same guys cars. Must be a sports star or something.

Sports star? Not in my area. Chicago is like three hours away. Why would he have a daily route between two towns w/o any professional teams higher than triple A ball?

When I was in school, someone down the street from my fraternity had a Pantera. White, and loud as hell.

I never see any Ferrari'*, though.

my uncle has a pantera that is one slick azz ride. up north where i grew up i would see porche on a daily basis. ferraria every now and then, and a lambo just about every other day or so (bet it was fake though) and my fav was my neighbor like 4 doors down had a 2000 viper and 2001 jag xjr which his son ran into the big oll rock in my front yrd.
lifted the whole front end off the ground like 3 ft. it was the worst sound i ever heard when the tow truck pulled it down (grinded the whole way then fell to the ground). needless to say he doesnt drive any of his parents cars anymore.

Bam Margera lives about 5 minutes from my place and we see his Lambo Gallardo almost every day, he blasts down the same road all the time. The Tubi exhaust on that thing is incredible..

I also got a ride in his old Ferrari 360 F1 2 years ago, and I thought that thing was fast.

I should've had my camera yesterday. I coulda caught a nice fighter jet flying directly overhead thanks to the airshow going on downtown.

And I coulda caught the deafening exhaust sound about ten minutes afterward when piping decided to break free before the muffler. Completely MEAN at idle, instant headache-producing at 2000rpm, and tolerable (but not sounding too mean) at 3000+.
