    Looks so good you almost don't notice that the wall switch isn't covered...... Need to get our resident electrician to help you out.
    Now get the F-car back on the road to G'Bury....you've missed too many gatherings.

    But seriously.. it looks great. Nice work.

    You're going to have to find some place else to park that yellow car. It's blocking the view of the floor.

    And it looks like Jay won't be doing any engine outs in his garage, unless, of course, he gets a garage floor cover. :0

    When you coming over to do mine? Had new concrete poured last summer.

    Had the flag out the past week. Lots of people stopped by and asked "what's up with the horse?"

    I will try to make it by one of the gatherings soon. Gearing up for the Canadian Grand Prix and Limerock with Challenge.

    Here's a snap.

    The garage is coming along. The new lights are in, the walls are no longer pink, the TV is hung, the speakers are in the wall, and the Ferrari flags are on the walls.

    Next up is the floor… still contemplating what to do… really like Jay’s floor but not sure how they will hold up long term to hot tires of the daily drivers. I think I am leaning towards having them stained.

    Once the floors are done, need to find another F-Car to fill the empty void under the Vette.

    Nice seeing everyone today. We discussed doing a shoreline drive possibly originating or ending at The Spot in Groton depending on parking, etc. I'll gather info and start coordinating this via another thread in a few days.

    This week's featured car: the 348 Serie Speciale.

    I went up to Kringle Candle 'cars and coffee' to see what was up this morning! Fine mix of cars, mostly American muscle - gorgeous cars. An original #53 Herbie VW was right next to me! As it was Mother's Day, I bailed early, at about 9:45, but a bunch of Bentley's and Rolls Royce's were arriving. Great place, and wonderful people. They could use some F cars! Second Sunday of each month, well organized. Have a great week!

    Great looking garages guys. Nice use of the side mount jack lift door opener. I took it another step further and had the door open to the ceiling. Gave me more room to have a car up on the lift and the garage open. Here is a link to my garage project a few years back.

    I went last month and agree it is a great show. My Mondial wasn't ready last month so I took my S2000 and now that I have the Mondial I'm hoping to bring it to the next show, I was unable to attend this months show due to it being on Mothers Day.

    I'll be there, and will look for you. Another friend of the Glastonbury group may go up as well.

    Here's a good video from the Mother's Day cars and coffee up at Kringle: http://youtu.be/-xkVd81eSgA

    And another from a previous gathering: http://youtu.be/_i9n-q7axkM

    I know it would interfere with the gathering in Gbury (has to be one or the other), but we should consider going up to Kringle as a group once. Seems they have an interesting mix of cars... which may benefit from having our interesting mix of cars attend.

    Here's a blurb on the event from the Kringle Cars and Coffee Facebook page:

    OUR 2012 SCHEDULE IS OUT!
    This entertaining monthly event is returning to Kringle Candle once again for 2012 on the second Sunday of each month, rain or shine. Hours are 8am to 11am. Coffee and catering will be provided onsite by The Farm Table, Kringle's incredible new restaurant. The slate kicks off Sunday, April 15 (actually the third Sunday in April but we don't want to conflict with Easter) and the balance of the
    schedule will follow the second-Sunday guideline. Join us, whether you have a car to display, or you just enjoy checking out a wide variety of exciting show-quality vehicles!

    It's about 100 miles each way for me, but that's no problem, just have to allow some time. Might be more of an issue for others. The schedule looks like it will give me time to get two new front tires on it and replace a bad bushing prior to the trip. Plus Rob and I can discuss Mondials...

    Kringle is nearly a 2 hour quest for me. Probably not going to happen.

    As for this weekend...Family obligations. Son is graduating HS. Looks like a near perfect day. Sorry I'm going to miss it.

    That would be great to meet up with another Mondial owner I'm pretty isolated out here in the forest! It is about an 80 mile ride for me, will be a good run for my Mondial.

    Next Saturday the 26th I'll be headed to Limerock for the Season opener. Its a Trans Am event but we'll also see F1600 and F2000 open wheel racing. My brother and nephew will be joining me. Who's in for a stomp through Litchfield county? (Weather permitting for the F Car).

    I also need a ride for chairs/canopy/etc...

    I just "ordered" mine.....seems they don't allow you to print them from home anymore.

    FYI.....final price for Saturday's ticket was $19.50.
