Spotted in Downers Grove (IL), United States of America
Date 2017-02-25 19:33

Despite it currently being winter I'd say Downers Grove has had its best month for spotting ever this month with some of the cars that I and others have spotted here, like this insane Ford GT I found this past Monday. I was on a bike ride with a friend and as we biked past the StraightNorth on Highland Avenue, I looked to my left, saw this, and nearly fell off the bike since I have only spotted one other GT besides this one. We went back to our houses as fast as we could since we both live within 5 minutes of there, both grabbed ours camera, and luckily it was still there when we got back. And as I was getting ready to leave, the owner came out and asked us if we wanted a burnout since he was going to be leaving anyway. I thought he was kidding but I said yes, and sure enough he did a burnout in a narrow corporate parking lot. One of the nicest owners I've ever met and a day that I won't soon forget!

    @Lamborarri, Not only is this a great spot for the winter months in Chicago but for any location in the world! These are easily some of your best pics as well buddy! Nice to see that you dialed in that new camera.

    That is awesome @Lamborari!!!! I've had some people accelerate fast or greet us with the horn, but a burnout is really cool!!! Awesome shots and great pics with the new camera!

    That sounds awesome and nice pictures too! This month has been going unusually well for spotting down here too. Not that South Texas really gets winters but the mild coldness still has an impact on spotting. This past week I saw an i8, GT350, a well specc'd M4 Convertible, California and met one of the nicest R8 owners on Friday. I remember last year I only saw two 'meh' cars in February lol.

    @thomcarspotter thank you! Yes this is what makes spotting so fun, you never know when something like this could happen.
    @NCspotter you know it Nick, thanks!
    @Herman05 thanks so much! I remember it like it was yesterday lol
    @Horse-Power always great to get your feedback West, how are things going with you? Chicago spotting this winter was insane, there wasn't a day that went by where I didn't at least see something noteworthy.
    @OPspotters thanks! It all happens by chance, hopefully something like this happens to you at some point this year. :)
    @pdk97_photography thanks! How about you post a few of those? ;)
    @tk97 thanks!
