    October 12 is a national holiday in Spain, so the weekend including Friday 8 would be nice.

    And if the US dollar recovers a bit (I doubt it BTW) I might even go with a 456, I keep my fingers crossed.

    Julio,
    sounds good. This is just a first idea and all without any obligations. I will try to get as much drivers as possible together for this trip.
    We have time enough to arrange a great event/drive/wine testing and of course the fchat.com-meeting.

    Wow, I keep my fingers crossed for you and the 456...yep another big toy;-)
    Why the US$???? Yes, the $ is down but I think you would like and prefer to buy in Europe?

    Yes I would buy in Europe. But I work for a US company, and most of my 'toys' money comes in the form of shares or Option Shares, from the NASDAQ. My company shares are high now, but the US dollar is so down that if I sell now I will lose a lot of money. :(

    Ouch, I understand.
    Its the same with my business. Working to 80% in US$ with the international market. I have lost realy big money in 2003 with the US$.
    Up to 30% less profit since last year March when the war started and the $ droped so badly down. I don`t believe that the US$ & G.W.Bush is strong enough to stop this drama within the next few months. Keep the $`s and try to wait till end of 2004 and hopefully the $ is going back to something around 1:1,10???? Who knows?

    @amenasce,
    you are always very welcome to join the drive. Its the commuinty of
    lovers, drivers and the whole Ferrari passion. Alfa Romeo is a great car and we drove the Spider 2.0 (Fastback) for over 8 years.
    Are you still looking/searching for a GTV?
    It would also be very helpful to have somebody like you with us, who speaks a fluent French;-)

    Hello Garreto,

    if I get the 456 I won't mind having passangers. But the 456 is looking far now, the US dollar keeps falling against the Euro and that will defenitly delay any new Ferrari purchase for me. D$%m!

    If I go in the 328 I only have one extra seat, as you know, and I have a couple request already. But if I have room be sure I will have you the first in the list if you still want to!

    Cheers.

    - Julio.

    Wolfgang,

    The GTS Turbo that Wimeldo is talking about is a 328 model. The 308 model turbo's were known as the 208 Turbo.

    Correction!!

    my car is not a 308 GTS turbo.

    GTS TURBO is called, it does not have number; is a evolution of the 208 TURBO.

    http://www.ferrari.it/cgi-bin/fworld.dll/ferrariworld/scripts/gt/car_data.jsp?car_type=GT&CAR_ID=GTB+-+GTS_TURBO

    - Wimeldo 308 GTS Turbo (noncorrect)

    - Alfredo GTS TURBO :) (perfect)

    Greetings.

    Alfredo.

    :confused: :eek: :D

    O.K.

    next try:

    - Ton 328 GTS
    - Julio 328 GTS or 456
    - Alfredo Ferrari GTS Turbo
    - Wolfgang Testarosa
    - amenasce Alfa GTV?

    ....Ferrari GTS Turbo looks and sounds better! `Cause just GTS Turbo sounds like Opel or something like this;-)

    Wolfgang,

    The GTS Turbo is an Italian market, two liter turbo engine that produces 254hp. It looks like a 328 but you can recognize it by the turbo inlets on the side and a different hood and bumper (with holes) at the rear. It is a very nice car.

    I would be interrested, a bunch of us from London are planning a 'ring' trip, so maybe we will include this in the trip.

    348 challenge or 360 if I can do a deal by then
