  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!

    Yeah David- That's something you don't see much up here- 88 year old guys in Acuras.

    Just awful.

    Yesterday we lost a fellow enthusiast , he was my dear friend who I’ve fished with in Guatemala and Mexico annually. Steve will definitely be missed. Services are tomorrow. RIP Steve Witzer.

    What a shame. Important to always wait to be sure nothing is behind a high profile vehicle.

    Sorry for our Sarasota friends.

    9:30 tomorrow am at The Palms. Fruitville and Honore. It’s my understanding it’s a graveside service and then a reception at the Witzer home.

    I knew this guy and know his son. He was a hard money lender, mostly with commercial real estate.

    Exactly. And what also makes this somewhat personal and shocking to locals in Sarasota is that many of us have driven that very stretch of road many times and likely in the very same lane(s) without incident.

    Thanks Spiro , the funeral was held this morning and there must have been 500 people. He touched a lot of peoples lives here and will be greatly missed by many. It was hard to say good bye to my fishing and Ferrari buddy. Life is short and can change in an instant. Hug your loved ones. Best , Kirk.
