    Post Drove alongside a Zanardi Edition NSX in Santa Monica

    On my way to work this afternoon (around 5pm), I drove my red 2000 NSX-T alongside a Zanardi Edition NSX and exchanged a few words with the driver.

    I believe the driver said his name was Flavio...and he is one of the locals.

    Just wondering if he's a forum member or if any of the other local NSXers know him. I haven't had a chance to check out the Zanardi Edition before.

    Hey there Kenny, this is Bill Lee aka Zanardi #50 of NSXSC.com fame! hehe! You can check out my bone stock #50 at the canyon drive this sunday. See ya there!

    P.S. There are 3 Zanardi's in California, all of which were sold as new back in '99 from Acura 101 West of Calabasas, if I did my homework correctly. The #49 was issued a junk title at 311 miles on the odo and 2 months after it was driven off the showroom floor back in '99. Mr. Flavio *could be* the owner of that Zanardi,ICBW... There are only 3 Z's in our neck of the woods, #46 out of Norco, #49 out of Greater L.A. area (salvaged title), and yours truly, #50, here in San Gabriel valley. FYI.
