    haha, werd Kenny, thanks for the compliment. I will say though, Kenny is like the little devil on your shoulder when he's riding shotgun with you. Good times my friend, definitely had a good time whippin those cars through the twisties on bear mountain. The Ford GT wins it hands down in my book, the car is effing AWESOME. F430 comes second, it was absolutely sweeeeeeet.

    some highlights from yesterday:

    1. Emil shooting flames out of the Ford GT's exhaust. The thing is a dragon!!!
    2. The final minute of the tour, a sweet lime green Murcielago comes on the highway and we all gun it the final seconds for a spirted finale down the GSP south.
    3. Danny's a pro behind the wheel of the BMW
    4. the prom girls
    5. pushing the FGT, 600 hp, no TSC
    6. getting to know the absolutely wonderful, professional, courteous officers in bear mountain =)

    Noah, Emil, Kenny and GDC team, BRAVO!!! I had an awesome time, money very well spent. My friends were getting sick of me talking about all the cars last night!!!

    PChop, next time I have to remember to bring donuts. Distraction for cops so Kenny and I in the FGT don't get nabbed.

    Kenny, next time we're pulln a U-turn and peelin outta bear mtn =)

    Kenny, it was great meeting ya yesterday too. You and the rest of the GDC guys were super cool and into cars, making it a lot of fun. I had apprehensions earlier in the week about this event being a letdown (a common thing with things like this), and then the rain came, but when I arrived in the lot yesterday morning and spoke with you guys for a few minutes, I knew it was gonna be great!!

    The cars were wonderful, all unique and with their own strengths. I'd say that the Ford GT was my favorite overall (the power, the sound, 6 speed manual), and the Ferrari was my favorite of the F1 cars (the sound). I wish we had the Gallardo spyder, because the improvements in the '06 model year are worth I hear. I really wish we could have had the Ferrari and Lamborghini in regular manual transmissions, but that would have been TOO MUCH...:)

    Some people have accused me of being affiliated with GDC because I couldn't stop coaxing them last night into going to the next one. If you love these cars, you will love the event.

    None of the cars were intimidating to drive in the rain, not even the Ford. You'd have to have been a crazy driver to have wrecked the car last night. Bring on the F40, *****es!

    Hey, I've got some video I'd love to upload to this site for you guys to hear.....can someone tell me how to do it?

    I had an AWESOME time on Sunday morning's tour.

    Noah - You put together an extraordinary event !

    Kenny - enjoyed having you ride shotgun while I was driving the BCGT.

    As expected the F430 was my favorite of the day but then again I am a bit biased. I enjoyed the very different characteristics of each car.

    Best quote of the day goes to my wife who also bought me an upcoming day in the F430 as a Bday gift.
    When I arrived home smiling from ear to ear she said to me "With all the money you've been spending on renting why don't you just buy one already".

    So when and how do I have the conversation about the maintenance and repairs LOL.

    There's a 328 or a 355 in my future and I look forward to joining all of you on a run in a year or so.....

    Amy was editing and sorting the pictures all week long- now, [I believe] we're just putting the finishing touches on the website.. Should be up very shortly- Noah'll shoot off an email when it's updated..

    But, wait a minute, EVERYONE had cameras on the trip- where are your pictures? :)


    Side note: stay tuned for GDC Dream Car Tour II .. and, if interested, we just took delivery of a BMW E60 M5 and Corvette C6 ZO6.. Gallardo Spyder is on its way!

    You guys are making it very difficult to decide on my next rental. :confused:

    Sign me up for GDC tour II ! Based upon the experience we all had on GDC Tour I this should sell out very quickly once the dates are announced.

    Dunno about Jason's post- news to me.. What we have on order:

    -Ferrari F430 Spyder
    -Bentley Continental GTC (convertible)

    There are a handful of cars that we'd love to buy if found at the right price- look for some surprises in the not-so-distant future.

    Another 3 years until you're 21, right? Start counting the days. If you get enough participants, we can try to plan a tour around your birthday weekend..
