    I'll be there with my new-to-me 360. Supposed to be a little chilly Sunday vs last week's meet up that I couldn't make... but I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of different interesting cars so hopefully a good turnout!

    Scott -- speaking of Lancias, one of the guys that showed up this week, for the first time, has I think, 5 or 6 Lancia's. I met him last year when he wanted to look at my Espada (since sold to a Prince in Bahrain -- but that is another story). Went to his house in Pottersville (uh, on 50 acres). Smallish house but several large barn-like buildings. Saw the 5 or 6 Lancia's in one building, then went to the other buildings where he has maybe 25 or 30 Alfa racecars (maybe more, I didn't count), a couple of Dinos, a few vintage Ferraris, and various other vintage European cars. Then, the phone rang and he told me to go upstairs to look at some Italian racing bicycles -- I lost count at 35! I like to meet guys like this so that I can show my wife that I am not so bad and others are crazier than me.

    Yeah, it was a great turnout considering the cold temps. When I left, my count was 72 cars. Lots of new attendees. Will post pics when I get a chance. See everyone next time.

    I would love to see a website just for this gathering. I see some of the same cars but I always see some new ones. I would love to see documented how many different cars have shown up since this has been started. Maybe like a member's cars section. I love seeing all the different rare autos. I also see some weird ones that I have no idea what they are. It could be very educational. I would do it if I knew how.

    A great event, even with the cold weather. There's always cars I mean to try to talk to the owner about, but get so busy talking to people I never make it to them....who had the beautiful silver BMW M5 (1997-2003 body style)? And the 550 Maranello? And the Ferrari 330GT? And the '73 911 w/racing stripes and houndstooth cloth seat centers? I'll have to be faster making the rounds next time-ha!

    I enjoyed meeting some new folks/cars! Or some of the same folks with different cars than last time (Kirk's newly acquired Lambo, Dr. Stein's 328, etc..)

    Was the silver Countach Kirk's new Lambo? Wow. The anti-Daytona! I guess I have to get around a little more in the future.

    Yes- it's a 25th ann. edition. Essentially as it left the showroom floor- wonderful condition!

    Thanks to everyone for coming out, it's great to see such a "buffet" of great cars, especially the Ferraris (what can I say? I'm a tifosi!). It's really fun to come out and see which cars will show up, it was only my 3rd time, but it's ALWAYS such a nice place to come, with SOOO many people who are so willing to talk and share their cars, whether you're an owner or an enthusiast (me). Special thanks to my generous, generous driver, Andrew, who let me join him in his "new" 360. It was fantastico!! He's a great guy, very knowledgeable. Grazie mille!! Ciao!

    The register of cars of C&C definitely sounds interesting. The variety of cars will only get more interesting as the weather gets nicer!

    We'll have to think about how to implement it.

    Another website is out of the question for Kirk and me for the foreseeable future!

    Yes, that was mine. Anti-Daytona is a good description, although the Daytona was probably more anti-Miura given that they existed contemporaneously--Countach came to production I think a year after the Daytona ceased production. Both are awesome in their own way. I also had a Miura S for a few years -- that was a wonderful animal, too. Ah, so little time...so many cars!
