    Very good news! I'll be at the opening party should there be one and I'll be in the dealership from time to time to peek at cars and buy some models to tide me in until I buy a real Ferrari in a couple of years!

    What will the location be?

    Congrats on the new job Bill !!.......you may not remember me, but I worked at Lone Star Mercedes-Benz for 7 years here in Calgary and remember you from your time when you were at the factory store.

    Cheers.....

    Great news Bill! Now I know where to get my next F-car. Please consider me for an invite for the grand opening. I know the local FCA will be interested in holding their anual general meetings there.

    Like everyone else, where's the location?

    Terrific news Bill, I look forward to meeting you.

    BTW, you might advise FNA to update their website, reflecting the change. :)

    wow, terrific news.
    if you'd have told us sooner, my dad wouldn't have had to go to FoO to order his 360 spider thats arriving soon.

    at least now theres a place in vancouver to service the car!

    Hello Everyone,

    I can’t release information about our new location at this time, however I can say that we will be utilizing 1290 Venables Street on a short-term temporary basis in the interest of continuity of service.

    Thanks for your continued interest!

    I went by the dealership today on 1290 Venables street (still not open yet) and talked to Bill. He told me that they were getting some new 360s in over this next week and that they should be openning up to the public very soon. I Just wanted to let everyone know that I thought Bill was very helpful and I look forward to doing business with him in the future.

    Yeah, and some American jerk owns "MaseratiofVancouver.com" :)

    Actually, when I saw it was not taken, I thought it was an oversight, and that they may want it...so I registered it, and offerred it to Bill for free...

    The owner of the new Ferrari Maserati of Vancouver dealership is from Ohio so it's no surprise that the domain name belongs to this same "guy" in Ohio.

    well, i did pass by the new dealership a couple times, and they've only got 2 red spiders and a stradale. I dont know what they have in the garage though. Im wondering if they have a nice, low miles, red on tan, 84 boxer in there, that would be nice! I wonder when they're officially gonna open.

    do you guys have a website yet?

    Also, the ice cream place right across from the dealership is amazing!! they have hundreds of flavours. Personally, i like "death by mango". you should all go try it! and then go check out those spiders

    sorry - when I was in there last week they didn't have any BBi's around. I asked! But didn't get to see in the back, they were in meetings with FNA and still a little disorganized.

    this is what the outside looked like a couple days ago. please excuse my camera taking skills, as they are limited. i wasnt quick enough to take a good picture, and excuse my sister in the corner there.

    can you guys guess what car this is by looking at the interior?
