    Well the girlfriend and I will be down in Naples from March 31st to April 9th. I am a car nut as is she and having ridden in/ driven Porsche, Corvettes, etc (other high end cars) Neither of us have yet to ride in a Ferrari. I have seen numerous F cars down there and I will be staying at 2100 Crayton Rd which is right by Gulf Shore Blvd. My question is... would anyone have any interest or time in a quick jaunt? It would really be a once in a lifetime expirience for the both of us and I would truly appreciate it. I have always wanted to ride in one of these beasts... Expect photos to be taken and many ohhhhs and ahhhhs of course :). I can be reached at 269-420-8249 at anytime if anyone would like to possibly meet. I don't have much to offer othen than a good deal on a Rolex (my job) and the good karma you would get haha.

    Kyle - Post a pix of the girlfriend and watch the chimes come in. Just kidding of course.

    If you want a great experience go to Sebring Raceway. You're about 2 hours away. April 1-4 FCA is having a major event.

    Thur, Fri and Sat is racing and Sunday a concours. All events at the track.

    See Florida region on this web site for more info. You might have to register in advance and it will cost about $20 for you to get in.

    You can also check www.fcafloridaregion.com

    I'll be there.

    Frank makes a good point. Come out to Sebring and you'll certainly get some rides. I too will be there, and would be glad to oblige.

    In FL, can't you rent Ferraris for a day? That way you and your girl can have a good time together. :)

    Thanks for the info guys... that sounds like a blast I have a car so the drive should be no problem. I know we have a local raceday for FCA I think at Gingerman but Florida would be an excellent place as well. Now on to the questions, as much as I wish I can't afford a Ferrari, that is my 1993 VW Corrado "fun" car as I call it. Loads of very subtle custom work has been done to it. Grafting in Audi A6 handles, Porsche 993 Aero mirrors, flared fenders. The wheels are BBS RS three piece (modular) that were refirbished and custom assembled for me in Germany. The wheels have been fully polished and assembled with 24kt. gold bolts :). As for the Rolex thing. I work at the Mid-Wests largest Rolex dealer. I run/design a very high end luxury website for jewelry (the likes that your wives Im sure adore). Anyways, if anyone needs help on anything please feel free to contact me. Kyle@pearlmansjewelers.com or visit my site www.pearlmansjewelers.com I will take care of all the FC guys. Again thanks for the responses and I hope to see some at the Florida GTG. Below are some progress pics. The car is now Porsche 1979 Casablanca Beige Metallic.

    Thanks
    Kyle

    Okay,
    first off your car scares me. Looks like from the F&F.

    Anyhow as Frank said, you are probably more like 3h away from Sebring. Come Friday or Saturday (Friday better) and you have a ride in a F355 Challenge. I will of course take your girlfriend first. While I scare her Frank will take you smoothly into track driving. He usually waxes his car while driving :)
    Sorry Frank I had to...LOL

    Come and look me up in the Pits. we are a bunch of Ferrari guys located in the same vicinity. Paulie B will possibly be there with his 360 although unconfirmed it could also be a Jetta or MB. Craig Zinn will have his 355Ch and his 360Ch there, Ray will have the 360Challenge and his Enzo I guess (yellow) and who knows who else is coming.

    My challenge is pictured here:
    The second picture is me trying to get my fat arse into my suit :)

    Martin,
    I appreciate it! Although the F&F thing scares me... in my circle my car is very UN F&F. Being it not gaudy, its a European trend the wheels and what not :) Silly yes but after going to Germany at a show I was hooked! I hope to make it... do I need to do anything in advance?

    Well my GF was very excited with the news so it looks as if the drive will be a go ahead... I am quite excited I have never had a chance to ride in an F car yet, not to mention a Challange 355, which would honestly be my choice of vehicles... I just love the styling cures and to me is the only car I actually prefer in spyder format!

    Frank,
    You shall too soon! I thank all you guys, your response has truly been nice. I must say after being around some of the Porsche guys (I attended some PCA meets with my fathers 914) You guys amaze me! You are all truly a group of enthusiast and I some day hope to join your ranks!

    Sincerely,
    Kyle

    go on over to shelton's on 41. they usually have a few in there and talk to the french guy - forgot his name - he is a good fellow and will probably take you for a spin. otherwise there is naples motorsports, but i don't know them that well.

    I'm sorry I should not say that! One guy handed my dad the keys to his 914 with the 3.2 swap in it and said have fun... VERY nice. However at one point I got into a bit of an arguement with two fellows who were making remarks about my Dad being "low class" due to his 914. I think it just left a bad taste in my mouth. Anyways, thanks for the info I will have to check out the French guy, I have been to Napls Motorsport and they were super nice, but no offer or chance of a ride :(

    I was just kidding around with you... almost all of the guys I've met at a couple of Ferrari events were super nice, as well as all the Porsche events.
    But you will always find that one ****** once in awhile. Last year my wife and I went to the Ferrari Fall Fest here in NJ, and this j-off was yelling at me to move my 911 further back into the weeds when I was parking and told me it was a Ferrari event, invite only. He didn't realize I had already pre-registered as a spectator only (i.e. I had no Ferrari on display) and paid my $130 for both my wife and I to get in (yes $130 for buffet lunch basically). Then he checked the list and, there I was. What an ass he was- thought he was hot stuff.

    It was an excellent day otherwise, and I've always been amazed at the comradely of fellow sports cars nuts!! Have fun in Florida!

    “I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?”

    "Go ahead, make my day"

    Of the cars I have owned one of my favorites was the 914 with a small block 327 Chevy in it. It had the high performance heads, headers and weighed 2300 lbs with 1/2 tank of fuel. Third gear was awesome, it would have blown my Modena into the weeds.

    One of my Dads next cars after he gets his 911 is a V8 914. We got a spin in one and it was INSANE! It really is just a Go Kart.
