    Hey guys!
    How about a drive this Saturday for those that cannot go on the Whistler, BC trip? I hear that new Club sponsor Cavallino Motors is hosting a "Open House" at their newly expanded facility (10am to 4pm) in Bellingham, and they will have a couple modded Ferraris to look at, and accessories to see. I was also told they will host a free "lunch buffet" of Italian food (courtesy of Club sponsor/member Nick Scianna at Nick's Forza Ferrari www.nicksforzaferrari.com ), car show in the parking lot and live music. Who's down? http://www.cavallinoautoworks.com/

    I was thinking we meet around 8:30am at Northgate, and depart around 9am. But this time, we meet at the south end of the Northgate Mall parking lot, adjacent to the food court (this way we are closer to the restroom facilities). Routing would be the "usual" I-5 and Chuckanut Drive, but on the return, we could go by way of Highway 9.

    If we choose, we can always run up to Semihamoo for lunch, or just to hang out on the deck for an afternoon snack/beverage.

    Dave,

    Are you bringing the Fcar or the 540? You're on the bmwpugetsound as 540M right? Might have to drop by and take a look at some Fcars. I am deciding if I should get one or the GT3 for my track addiction. Let me know where you plan to meet up.

    Tony,
    I'll be in the 355 for this. We should arrive at Cavallino between 11 and 11:30am. If you want, you can meet us down at the Arlington exit around 9:30am and drive up with us. Look forward to meeting you.

    Looks like we will have a couple Gallardos along too.

    I'd like to go, but I am not sure if my car's brake upgrade (******** kit) will be finished. Group 2 is doing the work, but there have been problems with the brake lines that came with the kit.

    I saw a silver 308 today at G2...is that your car? Body looks in pretty good shape for an older car. I was there to get my suspension dial out for next week track day. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for that ******** BBK? I haven't heard of them besides all the other brands such as Brembos,Stoptech,AP, Wilwood, etc. so don't know how they will hold up with track use.

    Dave, I will try to make it. May be we will meet you guys at the little Post Office right before you get to Chuckanut drive. Opposite the convienient store. What number can I reach you at?

    Yes, that was my car. The body is in decent shape, although it has a couple issues with the hood and another minor issue regarding some early rust right at the junction of the rear fender and the "sail" panel. The brake kit is about 2600, but I got the repainted calipers so that added I think $400 to the kit. The calipers are liteweight Wilwoods.

    We are changing the meeting point to the SOUTH end of the Northgate Mall, adjacent to the food court. This puts us closer to the restroom facilities, so it is not such a hike.

    8:30am meet up, 9:00am departure. Tomorrow (Saturday).

    Just watch the border traffic guys...it can be a bear mid morning. I would give yourselves at least 1 hour minimum waiting time.

    You can also listen to 1130am on the radio for updates every 10 minutes.

    Just as I was driving onto Meridian street in Bellingham I spot two Gallardo's, a CS, a 355 spider and a 348 spider. I thought I missed the whole group but when I showed up at Cavallino, I was glad to see that some of the Ferrari's were still there. Sorry I missed the other group!

    I was glad to see that Cavallino has 7 lifts for Ferrari and soon, German cars. We got to chat with the manager and some of the mechanics. Great environment and close for us Canadians. Thanks for the invitation, it was a fun little afternoon!
