    Chris Hill of AutoSport Gallery sponsored our monthly FCOA event at his shop yesterday and this is what I saw sitting "side-by-side". Enjoy.

    Chris--If you are reading this, thanks for saying grace over my 512TR but more importantly...thanks for allowing me to share these special pictures. You rock my F-world, man.

    the red/black gto seats are SO cool. I wonder why they are covered with the plastic. They look to be in really good shape - maybe resotred recently?

    The 288GTO is a finest example of a showcar and consistently taken 1st place in every event she has been in. It belongs to a gentleman in our club. The yellow Dino you see in the back is also a 93 point car that belongs to his wife. They both are member of our club and absolutely delightful people.

    Tom, does the local F-club in KC have a link or something that tells me when you have these events. I'm local I wouldn't mind taking a look.

    Thanks in advance

    There actually was an F50 over there, he came later on. I believe all four cars belong to him.

    LOL, damn, that is a rare sighting. Certainly something I never thought I would see. Do you know if that thing was actually driven in the snow? I couldn't imagine it would be drivable.

    why not? AWD. There was a video of some Gallardo in the snow. There's even a video of some F1 car in the snow. That was crazy...

    I've seen Gallardo pics in the snow, but the ones I saw looked like professional photos. It would just freak me out to see a Murci or something like it driving in several inches of snow. I know many have taken their cars out in the snow for the sole purpose of taking cool pictures, but I was curious to know if the above pic was one of those, or if it was actually driven somewhere in those conditions bcz the owner needed to get somewhere.

    Didn't EVO have a thing about using a Murcie in snow?

    That white Murci looks good. Better than those awful yellow ones. White sports cars always look good.

    Am I the only one who feels that aesthetically speaking, they have degenerated? Even in the "modern" range, from the 288 to the Enzo, it's reverse order for best looking (Enzo being last, 288 being first).

    Wow.... the 288 and the F-40 look awsome. The only thing missing, dare I say it for prefection would be a 250. Not complaining, just being greedy. Hats off to the owners,

    is the local club link that the owner of the GTO belongs too, and he has brought it to the Saturday Breakfast meetings several times. Chris Parr aslo brings his F-40 all the time and their are many 308's, two TR's, a 512, 355 spyder, 348 and a nero-metalica 328 that is there a lot too.

    Can anyone tell me how to download a picture I took with my digital camera that has a floppy disk. An error came up that the picture is too large. What do I do to make it smaller so that I can post it?
    Thanks for your help.

    You have to resize the image using photoshop or microsoft paint. Even if mine are the right size, and are already JPEGs, FChat almost never lets me post unless I open them up in photoshop and then RESAVE them as JPEGs. I have no idea why that is, but anyway...

    The Murci has AWD and I think there are some special snow tires you can order for it aswell... I read it in an older EVO magazine article.... they took an orange one out in the snow.
