    The upcoming concours at Celebration, Disneys unique waterside village, is shaping up to be a great event! It kicks off Saturday, May 22 with black tie (optional) gala and silent auction, and the concours is on Sunday, May 23. We anticipate a sold out concours field of 140 cars. Cars will be judged under IAC/PFA standards (like Cavallino and the FCA Annual Meets) with the Platinum-Gold-Silver Trophy System, and Chris Current, the FCA National Preservation Chairman, is Chief Judge. We have many significant and historic Ferraris committed already.
    The event's primary focus is to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, dedicated to helping children with life threatening illnesses. Please bring your car out and support the event!
    Also, we are holding a raffle for a brand new Maserati Convertible! Only 2500 tickets will be sold ($50 each) and all net proceeds go directly to Make-A-Wish. Please buy a ticket or two to help us help these kids, and maybe go home with a new Maser!
    Information, concours registration, and raffle tickets can be found at our website, www.celebrationexoticcars.com
    Please register early as the concours field is filling up fast.
    Hope to see everyone there!

    Wish I could but its just not possible. We are off to Houston for 5 days on the 26th and need the weekend to pre-work.

    Have not been in Disney in a while. Was looking forward to it. Celebration must have been growing like crazy. I was there when there were no houses built. :)

    Sorry you can't make it. It is shaping up to be an excellent inaugural event.
    Celebration has become the town Disney had always envisioned. Once the homes are completed in the final section (by next summer) there will be about 15,000 residents.

    This will be a great event. Anyone attending stop by and say "hi". We will be showing the black/tan 550, hopefully without the lovebug option! This will be the first show for this car so it will be interesting to see how it will do. :)

    I will be in LA on Sunday, doing the Enzo Celebration run. Leaving 6:30am, returning back to Miami on Monday morning 5:30am. 10 hours flight in 23hours, driving with crazed out Southern Californians, paying $2,60 per gallon of gas for my 308GTS, having the day of a lifetime: priceless :)

    We'll miss you. If you want to send your car, I can run down to Miami tomorrow and pick it up for you. Is she a go-er? Wink Wink, Nudge, Nudge, Know what I mean?

    Have fun in California.

    I offered to take the Giallo Enzo up to Celebration but C.F. had already made arrangements to have it flatbedded up. Curse the luck.

    Be ready for those blasted love bugs. I spent the better part of an hour today scraping them off the Solara and if their guts are left on for too long,
    they can do serious damage to paint. Be warned, Central Florida is teaming with love bugs this year.

    How does anyone live up there? Heh heh.

    The 348 Spider (blue) is in the shop. Coming out today but I have a client fly in tomorrow to look at the car. So this one will be sold likely by then.

    The 355Challenge has some clutch noice I will have looked at

    The yellow 355B has a bad odometer sending unit that I have replaced tomorrow (swapping them out with the blue one).

    The 308 is in CA (I will be driving that on Sunday)

    a new 360Modena, I bought yesterday will not be here till next week
    a new 348TS I will buy Sunday will not be here for another 2 weeks.

    Don't know what to tell you :)
    Have no cars for you
