    I was driving northbound I-5 from sacrament to redding thursday around 3pm and i saw a red ferrari 430 going the opposite direction. of course i said "cool shit" and stared at it. i continued to drive for another ten minutes and then saw a white ford gt with blue strips going southbound. i think to myself concoindence? then another 10 minutes later i saw another yellow ferrari 430. so at this point, im pretty excited and kept my eyes peeled. then i saw a green/charcoal DB9, yellow first gen Z06 and lastly a black viper with white stripes.

    ive never seen so many supercars in one day thats not at a car show, especially nor nor cal where everyone is pretty much poor. i think there was a track day or something in willows, ca where they have a track.

    oh yeah, lastly i was cruising with 2 first gen mr2s that were clean as hell. mid to late 20s guys, pretty cool to let me drive with them up to redding...

    i wish i had pictures but all i had was my camera phone and its not that clear especially when the cars were going the opposite direction..

    anyone with recent supercar sightings?

    SRT10 at a gas station yesterday. Murcielago and a Maranello the day before. I see a Quadraportte everyday on the way to work. Damn I wanna see an F1! an LM version would be even better.

    i see supercars at least several times a week and i rarely go more than a 5 mile radius of my house (npb is big $$$ area). the most common ones i see are a lot of ferraris, high end porsches, r35 skylines, maseratis, Z06s, etc.

    one notable one i saw recently was a audi R8, thats a cool looking car in person.

    Saw a Beautiful Yellow Murcielago parked outside the Chelsea Projects in Manhattan Last week. Some Rapper must have been visiting his family.

    3 of these drove past me on the highway the other day, along with a couple of nice Porshe's and Ferrari's, they are sick looking cars!

    Saw a couple of higher end Porsche's the other day. When I was living in Spokane I would see a Lotus Exige and Elise every couple of weeks during the summer. Ive seen two GT 40's and a couple of Ferrari's, but I have never really studied the looks of various models so I am not sure exactly what they where.

    One of the cars I would buy if I ended up stupid rich is a Saleen S7. Never viewed one in person though.. I love pretty much everything about them.. Tube framed wrapped in carbon fiber, and looks like something a 10 year old draw up. Super toy!

    where i used to live in houston,tx. i used to live really close to I45 and would see all kinds of ferrarris and lambos and porsche running all up and down. i lived not to far from alot of high end exotic car dealerships. i saw a maserati fly by me on i45. it hit a dip in the interstate and then all 4 wheels locked up and he slid off the interstate a few months ago.but i would always see all sorts of high end cars racing on the interstate over there.

    I work a few houses down from Bill Gates right now. It's ridiculous for nice cars, ferrari california's, bentley's, etc. I honestly will be on a roof, stand up and just listen to the exhausts.


    Actually in kirkland(not far from there) I saw a Lambo go through a mcdonald's drive through. Yes. Rich people eat mcd's too!
