    This is a quick reminder, that on Saturday at 5pm we will have my movie party at 4170 N. Marine Drive (roughly LSD and Irving Park). My fellow FChatters from the area are welcome. We will have valet parking, food, booze, free movie props and my feature length sci-fi movie that will make Gigli look like Oscar material...

    Oh, and there is a Ferrari in the plot. Can you tell what model and where the scene was shot?


    What's the movie about? Well, you heard Bush's plan to go back to the moon. He based that on my script...

    The palm tree in the backround says it's hot where you are. The leather jacket says you look like Marlon Brando in the "Wild One ". I say you are probably sweating in there like Carson's Ribs in a smoker. Ah, the price of fame !!

    Good eye. But the wrong conclusions Watson:

    They have palm trees year round there. When I went it wasn't as hot and I did need the leather jacket. Isn't just for show. But thanks for the Brando comparison...

    The shot is from the US btw. And a quite popular destination. Year round, despite the fact, that it gets pretty warm in the summer.

    Close on both guesses, but wrong on both accounts.

    348 Spider in either North Carolina or South Carolina. Or Georgia. My final answer.

    I'll take a stab at it. On the "strip" in Viva Las Vegas. The door pull design indicates the car is a 348.
    Did you see Elvis dining at the local Burger King?

    I would agree with Vegas as the correct location, i knew that background looked familiar....

    ...and the winner is: Dave!

    Actually I think the "glove box" next to my right shoulder gives it away as a 348. I think that looked different on the 355.

    And the strip in Vegas it is.

    Bonus question: Where on the strip? Can you ID the hotel in the background?

    NewYork,New York. Man,I was just out there in July. Should've recognized that! Did you rent that 348 from one of those Exotic car rentals? I called about renting one in Feb.'00....When I married Wife #2 there! (Yup! Same place as Michael Jordan and ...Britney Spears got married. But,will be 4 years in a couple weeks...a little longer than Britney's :) ) But,they were saying $750.00/day. I told them that I would be willing to pay up to $350.00/day,but,no more. They said "No!" Then,I was back in Feb.'01. Told them that I had a Ferrari back home,and wanted to Rent one for a few days. But,they were still really high.(Yeah,they WERE Really 'High'...to try to get the kind of Money that they wanted just to Rent it for a few days!!!:) ) So,I haven't even bothered to check the last few times that I've been out there. Has it gotten more reasonable? When did you take that pic?

  16. Yeah Vegas, I should have smack myself for that one. I see you rented the red 348, I rented the yellow one that had a hole cut in the dash with a V1 concealed display unit sitting in there.

    No sir, no rental. *MY VERY OWN 348*!

    Yeah right...

    Rented from Dreamcarrentals.com. They didn't have a yellow at the time. Was several years back. This was my first Ferrari I ever drove. Totally loved it. I had to wait a few minutes until I they got the keys straightened out. The lady apologized for the wait. I replied I had waited already 40 years, a few more minutes didn't really matter...

    As soon as I left their premises I looped it accidentally. Nothing happened. I pulled myself together and went on. Just to loop it yet again. Guess I wasn't used to that much hp under the foot.

    Hey Andreas, I'm going to try and make the movie premiere. My only hitch is one of my dogs is having surgery and we don't have a firm pick-up time for her. As usual, I'm on standby.

    BTW, do you like this Avatar a littler better? Thought you might.

    Let's play it by ear then. You have to be at 4170 N. Marine Drive by 6pm at the very latest. Party begins at 5pm.

    I like the avatar, but can't really see it that well. It is HIS car, but doing what? Sitting in a sandtrap?

    Good luck on the surgery!

    Frank, no matter what Bush says or does this year, he has my vote for his space plan. Even if it was just empty promises, I want to believe anybody who gets us back to the moon.

    To be honest with you. I can't believe it has taken this long to go back to the Moon. I'm really surprised. I mean,once we knew that we could get there O.K.,why not try to build a space station there. 30 years later!

    Remember tomorrow 5pm at 4170 N. Marine Drive.

    Take Kennedy or LSD to Irving Park exit. Where Irving park intersects LSD go North onto Marine Drive. One block, high rise on the left, valet parking.
