1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday. However, you may have problems accessing FerrariChat until after you log out, clear cookies/browser cache, and log back on. Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    Well we are finally making a second go at this with some new leaders. The first Des Moines Cars and Coffee event will be this weekend. Here is the information:

    2nd Saturday Car Chats

    Talk car stuff over coffee, tea or ? All nifty and cool cars invited!

    WHEN: 2nd Saturdays of August, September and October, 2011 – get it in your calendar now!

    WHERE: Near Starbucks at Merle Hay Mall, Merle Hay Road & Douglas Ave. in NW Des Moines

    August 13 2011, 8 AM to 10 AM
    September 10 2011, 8 AM to 10 AM
    October 8, 2011, 8 AM to 10 AM

    Suggest park south of Starbucks along Merle Hay Rd and save some space for come-and-go customers (Merle Hay did not return calls so no official permission obtained – instead, you are a Starbucks customer)

    Note: If you didn’t get this message directly from Bill Dikis, send your e-mail address to billdikis@msn.com to receive reminders and updates with the words “2nd Saturday” in the subject line.

    Hey Steve, how did the first C&C go? I wasn't able to make that one but I should be able to make it to the next two. I have a E92 BMW M3 though. Is that ok to bring?

    Yes pretty good turn out considering the straw pole and state fair were also going on.

    I was given the keys to a BMW Isetta 300 and a new Jaguar XK to take a for a spin.

    All cars are welcome, there was everything from Imports, to british roadsters; packards, to a 1920 Locomobile; microcars to Mercedes.

    Just throwing this out there for next year. I think it would be awesome to have a c@c labor day weekend or maybe a drive this weekend. It is great weather to go for a drive.

    Very cool to see a 250 (looks to possibly be a GTE / Boano conversion ?) model, of any type, anywhere.....let alone in Iowa :)
