Of speedos and naked Ferrari man…..

Walking up and down Michigan Ave., you are prepared to see a lot of things. But not this…

As readers of this blog know, I like to comment on the stange and obscure things that people do on Michigan Ave. to get tourists’ attention.

Well, today, for the first time in a long time, I saw one of my favorite Michigan Ave. attractions: Naked Ferrari Man. Allow me to explain.

On the weekends, there is a middle aged guy with a perm, who drives up and down and up and down Michigan Ave…. most of the times, he is shirtless and in speedos…. with the top down on his car.

Now, this, in and of itself is strange enough. But today it reached a new level of strange-ness. While getting a bite to eat, and doing a bit of shopping, my friend and I saw him, in a matter of 1 hour, 3 times. This by itself is bad enough, but then, when waiting for the bus, I saw it.

He actually makes sure to drive in the lane closest to the sidewalk. How do I know? Well I saw his pass a stopped taxi in his lane, only to wait in the middle lane until he could get back over. Yup, he held up traffic and everything. Just kinda sat there in the middle of Michigan Ave. as cars began to line up behind him.

As soon as he could, he moved back into the lane closest to the sidewalk, and onwared he went.

You just don’t get this stuff in the ‘burbs….
