    Where might you be and how many of you are there? Any local clubs or "Get-togethers" in the central area?

    Not many of us around!
    I'll look for your 355,
    If you see an old silver range rover trying to keep up with you,
    That will be me, as I still have the 308 in pieces.

    Lets try and do a get together at some point!

    I am currently in college in Searcy, AR. I am a Ferrari fanatic, though it is VERY rare to see one here. I saw a Maserati Spyder in LR last year, but never a Ferrari.

    I do attend the Father's Day Italian Car show in Memphis each year, though.

    If there are any "meet-and-greets", and if enthusiastic non-owners are welcome, I would love to come.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Andy: Keep your enthusiasm and one day you WILL be an owner. So far I have not heard of any get togethers in central AR. If I do, I'll post it on F-chat and would encourage you to come down.

    I appreciate the encouragement. My family snickers when I tell them, "I *will* own a Ferrari", but I have no doubt anymore. In my mind it is no longer "if" I will own a Ferrari, but "how" and "when".

    As an aside, do you know of any autocross clubs or karting tracks in Central Arkansas?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    For kart racing in AR the best place to go is
    www.kartways.com

    It's in Warren (about an hour from LR). Great track and Gary Smith who runs it is most helpful.

    This is real racing- shifter and Rotax karts haul butt.

    I"ll have to look into that -- definitely enticing. Thanks.

    Does anyone know anything about autocrossing in the LR area?

    There are lots of Ferraris in Tulsa, you just haven't seen them. Cruise Riverside Drive on the weekends during the summer. I used to see them there. Utica Sq area too.

    The warm sunny days will soon bring out the f-cars in central AR. My yellow 355 spider will be amongst them.
