    Noticed the name change in FB & Instagram tonight. Web page is still algarferrari.com at least for the moment.

    I liked Bob Segal. Nice guy in my book.
    The Russian kid seemed an odd approval by FNA but probably that came down from S.p.A.
    DiStanislao seems like a nice Italian name! :cool:

    I got an email the other day from Ferrari of Philadelphia, kind of sad.

    And the top floor at Algar was full of interesting customer cars in storage, waiting for Spring, or service, or both.

    If it makes everyone feel better the guys at Mclaren Philadelphia are fantastic and RDS owns them as well so I don’t see this being a bad thing.

    Anyone know if Livio is still there? He was a tremendous asset to the Ferrari parts world!

    I have bought two cars from McLaren of Philadelphia and the experience both times was exceptional. I also recently placed an order for a new Ferrari with Ferrari of Philadelphia and the experience could not have gone better... I think this transition will ultimately prove to be good one for local enthusiasts.

    Hey Dominic!
    I originally ordered a Ferrari Roma, but while I was waiting, I test drove a Mclaren GT, fell in love, and picked her up last week instead. I know its probably not the right forum to admit this, but I am a really big McLaren fan. I still have a Ferrari 296 deposit in, but likely won't be seeing that car for at least 2 years I would guess.

    Joe-
    We are both true car guys and even though I am a die hard Ferrari aficionado I will admit the McLaren GT is a great looking car
    You have always been an ambassador to the Ferrari brand and great seeing you back on the site

    I thought that Velkselberg Jr. had also acquired Ferrari of Denver in ~2017 or so... Any info on wether they divested FOD as well?

    yes, they had bought both dealerships around the same time. F of Denver was sold early last year before the philly store was sold to Bobby D.
