    Curious to see how many other Ferrari owners are in the Greenville SC area. Just purchased my first F car and patiently awaiting delivery.

    There are a handful around the area! I know of a couple 458's, few F430's, a handful of 360's, and an assortment of older 3*8 models. Have you attended the Upstate Cars & Coffee event held at Michelin on the 4th Saturday if each month? I'm sure David Scott will chime in eventually and can help connect you to the local community.

    Yea I have brought my Porsche's up to cars and coffee. Last one I attended was February. Does everyone ever get together for a cruise? Nice to hear there are more locals. Just picked up a F430 myself very curious to see how she stacks up to my old car.

    The Spring season normally brings the Coach I Memorial Event in Clemson. You will certainly not want to
    miss this one. The only thing better than the cars and people is the venue! David and Julie put on quite
    a weekend, including a drive! More on this I'm sure when David chimes in.

    Sounds like a plan, located in Easley so Clemson is rather close.

    I'm on my second V12 currently with a Nero 612 on 599 Challenge wheels and Tubi's. RIP to my '01 550 Titanium Grigio several years ago.

    Chip I am friends with the Jim Little and his father Lindsey. I just received your card from Jim and will be in touch once I return from Sint Maartin mid May.

    Glad to be back on the board!

    I have a 612 and live in the Charlotte area; but, have yet to see another in the wild. Your acquisition could perhaps lead to the unthinkable event of more than one 612 in the same space & time. :)

    Have fun in St-Martin / St Maarten - my favorite place in the Caribbean and a great place to watch airplanes if your into aviation.

    Just saw the post. Maybe we will run into each other southnc! I used to live near Dean & Deluca by South Park Mall when I had my 550 years ago. We then moved off Providence and McKee for several years before heading to Spartanburg. I acquired my 612 from LA earlier this year and love it.

    Maybe I'll run into you at an event in July if you plan to attend any, or if there are any. I still get emails from Kevin as I was part of CAFE.

    Cheers!

    I live near the Calvary Church - just a couple of miles from Ballantyne (South Charlotte).

    I plan on attending Eurofest in SC this fall - very close to you. In addition, CAFE will probably have the Ferraris at Morrison this fall as well. Definitely worth the travel.

    I also acquired my 612 from California - Marina del Rey area.

    I know exactly where Calvary is. I will be at Eurofest also and possibly to CAFE meets if Saturdays permit.

    Mine was registered in Valencia, CA. I had Ferrari Of LA inspect it and do some normal maintenance before I had it delivered to me.

    Is Foreign Cars in Charlotte still allowing drop offs for Ferrari service or have they suspended that?

    I believe FCI still does allow drop offs. If your an FCA club member, I believe you also get a discount on service.

    However, you really should consider Automotive International - they just relocated to a larger, state-of-the-art facility near Carowinds. They service most of the Ferraris here and do a very good job. Ask for Peter.

    I know Peter! They touched up the front of my 550 when they were still behind Foreign Cars. That's good to know! Thanks!

    I'll call up to make an appointment for next month.
