Finally saw a 1M on the road

I live in central CT and it was so nice outside today I decided to get some fresh air. The next thing I know, I heard a phenominal sounding exhaust from up the street, low and behold it was a Valencia Orange 1 Coupe M. I was in awe, absolutely gorgeous, I felt like my heart had skipped a beat. Absolutely stunning, I hope to see it around town more often. Does anyone on the boards own this 1M?

Could you be more specific then central CT? Besides myself, I know of one other VO 1M that is in and around my area in central CT but there are probably a few others too.

Do you remember what street/town you saw it on/in?

Maybe your 1M got caught already by the Autogespot guys during one of the 9 sessions reported so far (3 times a VO):

I picked it up in early September of last year. There's also another 1M that works in town, you can see it parked usually on weekdays just before sliders if you're coming from deming road. You normally can see if from the street. I don't actually know that owner, or if they're a forum user on here but I damn sure like their car

Ahhh, you're talking about ber-LIN, where I'm from, the town is called BER-lin. I live in the United States and we apparently had a tendency to copy European cities/countries/anything for town names, e.i. a boarding town to mine is New Britain. Legend has it the people of my town changed the pronunciation during the second world war, but who really knows or cares.

The green circle decal with a 4 in it on their windshields threw me for a second before I realized the whole different license plate thing. I have yet to take that decal off from the previous owner.

Damn you had me excited for a second there
