    Predicted temperature is 34 at 10 AM - not as bad as it could have been.

    We just moved to Atlanta, however, our household belongings and Ferrari are still in transit. I would love to come down and meet everyone.

    My Canon is still not communicating with my computer, so I have to get over to Walmart and get a Photo CD made. Tomorrow, perhaps?

    BTW, we had 12 cars show, not a bad turnout for a chilly day, though we spent most of our time inside the coffee shop. As is typical for January, the street was a wind tunnel!

    Sorry I missed everyone.

    I've begun taking the car apart for my major and hope to have it ready for Italian car day in march!

    It was a bit chilly, 34 degrees with the "wind tunnel" working, so we spent most of our time in the cafe. 8 early arrivals, 4 more later, and all Ferraris this time. Here are some pics.

    The F355 GTS is exactly the car I would have bought in 2004 if I could have afforded it: Rosso Corsa, with a body-color roof panel and a six-speed. And it's a pleasure to see a 308 without the "battering ram" bumpers.

    Looks like a nice turnout, especially given the temperatures. I hope to be able to make the next one.

    I saw a 288 GTO that afternoon in the Roswell area, was thinking that they were coming from this event. Don't see that car here though, so I guess not.

    Around the time I went upstairs to shoot from the overpass, the first two late arrivals appeared with a couple of 458s, a Spider and a Speciale. The 456 was also a six-speed car, which was nice to see. "Save the Manuals!"

    We were both moving in opposite directions on Roswell Rd, so I couldn't 100% confirm that it was a 288 GTO. Could have been a 308 with a body kit. Just a quick glance from the front and then in the rearview mirror.

    It would be an awesome spot to see a 288GTO in the wild! I've only ever seen one in the wild - back in 1989 in Paris driving across the place de la Concorde.... saw the mirrors sticking up out of traffic ahead of it...!

    Just for the record, there is a 288 GTO running around that is a rebodied 328.
