    **Another reason you should join the Ferrari Club of America! Ferrari ownership is encouraged, but not mandatory. Join us now https://www.ferrariclubofamerica.org/index.cfm/ID/43/

    Check out the video of a past event here:

    Greetings FCA Members and Friends,

    Once again our annual event honoring Dr. I.M. Ibrahim and his love for friends and Ferraris is upon us! We always have some very interesting cars and folks at this event, so we hope you will consider adding this to your Memorial weekend plans.

    Julie is opening her home; a masterwork designed by Alfred Browning Parker Ten Things To Love About Architect Alfred Browning Parker and commissioned by John "Buck" Fulp, noted gentleman racer and textile magnate, John Fulp (USA)'s cars - Photo Gallery - Racing Sports Cars for this FCA event. Buck raced many of the early Ferraris such as the 250TR, 196 Dino, 250 GTO, 250 LM. And some say he had a track on the back of the property where he tuned and tested his cars. We have indeed found what we believe to be the banking for the turns to this rumored track. It is really neat that great Ferraris have always been part of this ABP masterwork.

    During the weekend there will be Julie and David's Fabulous Garage Party, a fun "Concorso" of Ferrari and other fine collectible automobiles, a barbecue luncheon, live music provided by Doug Jones of Craven Melon, a rally to Highlands, NC, dinner at Cyprus featuring international cuisine, and the Monaco Grand Prix viewing complete with brunch and Champagne. We may even have Just Aircraft stop in again and land at "Lake Julie`"! Lake Julie is kind of like Lake Como, but it's a 14 acre pond with lots of bass so please bring a rod. I'm not kidding, three of our friends caught 135 bass a few weeks ago, and all were released!

    If you are staying the weekend, I would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn (864.964.0100). Ask for the Special FCA rate of $109 per night. This is 1.8 miles from Julie's and you can even leave your car at her estate while we act as your taxi service, or park in the secure parking at the hotel. Since this is a jump in as you see fit high value event, feel free to book one night, two nights, or just attend any of the scheduled events.


    Below is a schedule of events:


    Friday May 26:

    - 5:30 - 7:30pm: Cocktails and finger food at Julie's Garage

    Saturday May 27:

    - 10:30am - 2:30pm: Ferrari and Motorcar Concorso and Rally with Doug Jones-Pools open for those who dare!

    - 3:00pm: Rally to Highlands

    - 5:30pm: Dinner at Cyprus Cyprus International Cuisine

    Sunday May 28:

    - 10:30am-1:00pm: Monaco Grand Prix with Julie & David

    All sponsorship is provided by The Tiger Sports Shop https://www.tigersports.com/ and Maserati Lotus Greenville Maserati and Lotus Dealership Greenville SC | Used Cars Maserati Lotus Greenville

    Again, please RSVP for each event that you will be attending so our caterer and restaurant reservations will be set. I'll see some of you in just a few Weeks!

    Remember...RSVP- please PM on Fchat or email below.


    A Dopo,

    INTERLOPER ALERT!

    I just sent an email to David letting him know my wife and I will be attending for part of Saturday. But...we will be driving an '87 Porsche 911 in Carmine Red. Not to worry though, I'll dig out my vintage N.A.R.T. t-shirt for the event. : )

    GO TIGERS!!

    I wasn't sure if we could make it by Saturday with the Merak steering rack and front suspension being put back together. Well it's back together and ready to go. I have sent an RSVP to David if it isn't to late.

    My question is what is the address of the wonderful event? This way I can decide on our flight plan from Atlanta. :)

    Thanks for all the hospitality. It was very memorable day. Especially the F40, the Daytona, the spectacular home and grounds and when my lovely wife bid against me for the Giles Villenueve autograph! (all for a great cause). I wish we could have stayed longer, but family obligations required our early departure. Thanks again.

    I don't know why everyone does not just blot out on the calendar this weekend, as we know the time of year. This is a Do Not Miss weekend. Julie and David really make sure everyone is happy and having fun.

    Julie and I certainly Enjoyed it.

    Here are a few sweet photos of Friday.

    I had a blast as usual at this event. I counted 40 Ferraris, which I think is a record for the event, among 86 cars on Julie's lawn on Saturday. The ribs at lunch were phenomenal, and the dinner in Highlands was fun as usual, though I wish we had been sitting outside again.

    Thanks again to Julie and David and the staff for putting on this wonderful tribute event.

    I'll be posting photos later.

    So happy I went last minute. My wife gave me a pass considering Friday was our 27th anniversary. Beautiful cars and wonderful people. Julie and David have a way of attracting both.
    Thank you and Congratulations on your announcement.

    Here are some photos from Friday starting with two at the hotel, and then the evening cocktail party. My favorite car there was not a Ferrari, but rather the Allard K3, a car not often seen. There were enough hors d'oeuvres to make dinner unnecessary, at least for me. I included the last photo to show the contrast between the sleek Ferraris and the definitely un-sleek BMW Isetta.

    I'll probably post my Saturday photos tomorrow.

    Hey man, thanks for sharing that N.A.R.T. shirt! Post a pic here will you? Hard to believe this home was built by a former N.A.R.T. driver, John "Buck" Fulp.

    Peter Ryan and John Fulp drove this NART Ferrari Dino 248 SP at Sebring in 1962.

    and this

    Ferrari NART driven by "Buck" Fulp/Peter Ryan. Experimental Category – 2969 — Chassis: 0794 — Weight: 835 kg. Career: Leaving at the hour (off-track)

    and this

    During this period, the 268 was sold to Buck Fulp, though he continued to largely campaign the car on behalf of NART. A very successful race record soon shaped up, starting with the 1963 Bahamas Speed Weeks, where the SP finished 5th overall and 2nd in class at the Governor’s Trophy Race, and 11th overall with 2nd in class at the Nassau Trophy Race, both times driven by Fulp.

    Speaking of Nassau, there is a story about them putting in a spare tank and filling it with rum for the return trip.

    and there's Le Mans and more like this:

    https://www.si.com/vault/1966/07/04/608859/a-roundup-of-the-sports-information-of-the-week#

    John (Buck) Fulp, a 27-year-old textile manufacturer from Anderson, S.C. driving a Lola-Chevrolet at an average speed of 101.46 mph, won the SCCA Watkins Glen 200-mile sports car grand prix and took the lead in the series (four races to go) for the U.S. Road Racing Championship.

    He was one of the first Lola importers.

    Julie and David: Melissa and I thoroughly enjoyed the event. Everything was simply top notch and, of course, Austin Meyer helped make it even better for me by letting me drive his gorgeous 458 Speciale from Columbia to Anderson and back. Whew. What an AMAZING machine! Thanks, Austin and David for setting it up for me. My first time at the Highlands with Austin driving. We are all lucky to still have licenses. Great food and fantastic people.
    Bravissimo! :)

    Here you go. Had a couple folks asked me where I acquired it. I wanted to tell an exciting tale of winning it off a driver in a poker game in the pits at Laguna Seca with only pair of 5's. ; ) But alas, I told the truth...eBay.

    It typically lives in a plastic bag most of the time and this is the first time I have worn it probably 3 years.

    Mythical time in racing. Here is a picture of Buck with the man himself Luigi Chinetti, Sr., at we think, either Nassau or Sebring. Chinetti is the father of N.A.R.T. and Ferrari North America.

    I didn't have time to sort through all my Saturday photos, so this is a teaser.

    We had a couple of Vipers there, but they were not the only snakes on the premises. A black snake slithered out from under one of the Maseratis and made its way around for a while.

    And a photo of the BBQ spread just before they started serving. Those ribs were so bodacious that I went back for a second helping!

    Those ribs were awesome. I hope they don't stick to me like they did to the containers.

    I left a bit early for Highlands since I had to make a stop and enjoyed a nice solo drive, although route 28 should have a few passing lanes added to avoid having to follow slow traffic for mile after mile. When I arrived in Highlands, I was lucky to find a space almost directly in front of the restaurant!
