I'm trying to remember the last time I saw a Lamborghini or ferrari in Lexington. I think it was literally about this time last year.

Have seen quite a few R8s and Maseratti GTs, though.

I saw quite a few while I was there that would have you in first place. I actually saw quite a few modified e65s while I was there. In only two days I saw five 7s on custom wheels, one with ACS kit, and also an ACS e60. Pretty cool to see that many nice modified cars, but it's good to be back in Lexington where my 7 is king.

I'll probably have to hold off till this weekend to go hunting for a nice car to park beside. I've been really busy getting caught back up with work.

I saw a Ferrari 360 Modena this weekend, I told him to follow me for the picture opportunity but unfortunately he couldn't keep up..... So I had to go with this picture instead.

Ya I would have turned off the fogs and just left the daytime running lamps on, then (it appears you took the picture on your phone) if you have an iPhone there is an app called 'Photosynth' that takes bad@ss panoramic pictures! This would have fit the whole boat in the shot and possibly capture the moon over the sea or something like that if the location permitted. I'm still waiting for the right opportunity to use this app.
