    Any former Boy or Cub Scout Ferrari owners out there?

    I was contacted by the San Marino Cub Scout pack. They are looking/hoping to have a few Ferraris show up this year to their annual pinewood derby race day in Lacy Park on April 28th - 12:00 - 4:00 pm (ok to leave early). They are hoping for 4 - 5 Ferraris.

    If you'd like to bring your car for a couple of hours to give the kids a thrill and are willing to let them sit in the car for photos, etc then send me a PM for the details. 2 of us going already (458 and 355).

    No takers? Is for a good cause. Motivate the kids of today to get excited about cars. Only need a couple of volunteers.

    Hi Peter,

    Many of us with FCA will be gathered in Arrowhead this weekend. If the group cuts out early AM on Sunday, I will drive down to join you and perhaps drag few other members too.

    I’m ok, but life is complicated with one straight leg (I also tore the tendon). Getting up is a one legged squat thrust. My leg is longer than any car door opening, so I have to lay the seat down and angle myself in. Worse of all: no sitting at the bar for me! Of course no 3 pedals, & that’s all I have. An F1 may be in my future.

    Hiag:

    Thanks for the thought and have a great time at Arrowhead. I think we have the Cub Scout event covered. They only have room for 6 - 8 cars on the grass and we have 7 signed up. However if you are in the area, there should be room in the parking lot and I'm sure they would appreciate seeing more.

    Mike - Speedy recovery!

    Ok, I will touch base with the boys tomorrow.

    I know of at least one 430 spider in Pasadena will be joining the Arrowhead run. I will get a feeler out and keep you posted.

    Thanks for showing up and to everyone else as well. Its always great to give back to the community and share our Ferrari passion. In total we have 8 Ferrari's there to entertain the Cub Scouts and their families until their races got started. While still the same pinewood derby cars I remember as a kid, we never had live video of the races with digital timers and photo finishes.
