    Hello F-Chat, my name is Drew Massa.

    I have read back (for hours) your posts and I can see you are a very enthusiastic bunch.

    If I can, I would be happy to field any questions you may have along the way about the Illinois Chapter.

    Mike Epifanio (Mike E ) and I have been at this club stuff for over 12 years and into Ferraris long before that. Of course we don't have all the answers--but we will try to get them.

    Hope to see you all at our events this season.

    Glad to have you on board Mr. Prez.

    Now we need to work on your and Mike E.'s post count. How about some good stories of past events? Or digging in the club's archives of some glorious past events, some pictures perhaps? Hey, maybe I can help out: I have been a FCA member long before I had my Ferrari.

    Very true. It is amazing how these cars act like magnets. At any given FCA event you find some first class ladies. I remember last summer one approached me and asked me about the prices/values of the different cars. I pointed them out first thinking she is into buying. Then I caught on to her and realized she just wanted to know which one is the most valuable. I showed that one to her and her next question was: Who is the owner? I pointed at the guy and that was the last thing I saw of her, she was on her way...

    True story. Honest to God. And I won't reveal who that owner was. Let's just say he is a FChatter.

    Actually I'm making this a bigger deal than it really was: I don't think that owner had much interest in this lady and that was probably the end of it.

    Hi Drew,
    Welcome to the board! I am sorry that I couldn't attend the meeting. I am interested in the upcoming agenda. Is there any way someone could post a synopsis? I am sure that a number of us would appreciate it.

    Regards,
    Bill

    I posted some of the highlights of the meeting: check the FCA Board Meeting thread, page 2 if I remember correctly.
    The calendar for 2004 is on the FCA Chicago website. Lot's of events for this year. Does anyone know if the date for Automobili Italiene has been set yet?

    Yes it is: July 11

    Tentative however. When I put the calendar together Mike E. told me, that it would have a new name, but it wasn't decided yet what that would be.

    The date for the italian car show is July 11. I didn't list it becuse we were waiting for the new name.It has been decided by vote of members at the January board meeting to call it Automobili Italiane and will be at the Doral Eaglewood Resort & Spa in Itasca.Details and registration will be on our web site(www.fcacentralstates.org) by March.

    I hope you were joking about her being a 'first class lady' then....sounds like a gold digger. I remember a couple years ago my frequent summer car was a '90 348ts and I would have it parked someplace and go back out and there would be a girl and her friends looking at it. One time I walked up to them, 'Nice car. Is it yours,' just to see what they said about it. The reply was , 'I wish I knew the guy that drove it..I would be set for life,' and you could see the glint of 'gold digging skank' in her eyes as she mentally figured how to get and spend the money that was not hers. At that point I said, 'Excuse me,' and took out the key and got in. It was HILARIOUS to see the look on her face. At that point I said, 'Better luck next time,' and left. It was great!! :D

    Yeah,Yeah...those McDonalds commercials... Hmmmmm.....Kind of wonder where they might have gotten the idea for that slogan.....Not that the McDonalds WORLD Headquarters is a mile from my house...I often wonder if someone from their Marketing Dept.saw me driving around in my Ferrari one day,and suddenly got a "Brainstorm" for a new slogan campaign....Or,Maybe attended one of the 2 'Bella Macchines' shows at the Oakbrook Polo Grounds,which,incidentally,are adjacent to the McDonalds WORLD Headquarters property. And,saw my car with those plates on it....And,the new commercials came out a little while after that....Hmmmmm..... It wouldn't also be,because in the first commercials that they showed with this new Slogan,there was a Red,"Ferrari-Like" car in the commercial....NAH!!! It HAS to be just a coincidence!

    Yeah. Some Clown in the Marketing Department at McDonalds World Headquarters,(And I don't mean 'Ronald') Was probably out driving around,or attended the Oakbrook show,and,like a "bolt of Lightening" hit him,got a great new idea for a new Slogan and Campaign. He went to work Monday morning,(couldn't wait to get there,so he arrived at 7:00AM,waited,all nervous and excited and everything for his Boss to get in.) And told his Boss. "Boss,I think I've got a great idea for a new Slogan/Campaign". Told his Boss,then his Boss said,"Johnson! You're a freakin' Genius!! Thats why we pay you $150,000.00 a year. But,because of this,we're giving you a big raise,a bigger office, a new company car,a huge Bonus,and why don't you take your family on a nice Vacation...on us,anywhere in the World!!". Yup!! Thats what happened all right!!! :)

    Actually Mc Dees was willing to pay you some initial royalties, but then they realized that you're already affiliated with their competition from the Wienermobile. Right, FRANK?
