    WWoC.....You've made it to the big time.....you're on Ferrarichat ! I always knew you guys were lurking around here anyway. :)

    I'm stopping by around noon to pick up some brake pads.

    Rob----Excellent choice. They are truly what every Ferrari dealer should strive to be . This makes me even prouder to be a member of this forum.

    I was WWOC's first customer. They rebuilt the transmittion in my 275GTB. They kept my 308 going for 85K miles. They kept my TR going for 115K miles. They restored my MK-IV which has won several trophies and was the only GT40 to finish the pebble tour without breaking down. They turned my Duesenberg from a trailer queen into a driver. They've kept my Maser in top form. I've sent many F chatters to them and as far as I know they've all had a great experience. As I've said before: Mention my name.
    Best

    I have purchased two 456's from them. Both transactions were smooth and the cars were as described. The service department took car of several small warranty items but didnt have a shock in stock. They shipped it several days later, it beat the car to San Diego. I would deal with them anytime.

    20 or 30 years??? Oh H-ll no. 4 years for you to get a degree with high grades - keep zipper in the up and locked position - get good job. Keep zipper in up and locked position then save save save. Then buy Ferrari.

    Don'ts:

    Do not buy an expensive house that you can barely afford
    Do not lease a car (daily driver) - get a good one and own it
    Then buy the Ferrari

    I upgraded Girlfriend 1.5 to Fiancee 1.0 then Wife 1.0. That has set me back a bit. Pre purchase accessories have included new King sized bed (not that this is a bad thing), 4 stone wrap for her engagement ring and various assorted things bought after she said "Well you ARE getting a Ferrari". God help me when I tell her this is only the first one.

    Ferrari first...then kids (as in PAID OFF Ferrari). I'll start saving for the next one after the 308 QV I hope to get is up to snuff.

    WWoC is a close and valued friend of the FCA Empire State Region.

    WWoC is the Ferrari dealership who's the major sponsor of the Watkins Glen Labor Day FCA Empire State Region track event.

    Mike and his crew are central in helping us put on one of the most banner track events of the year.

    FCA Empire Region is very appreciative of the support we receive from the dealerships in our region, WWoC being right in the thick of it.

    Welcome aboard.

    Very good sponsor for Fchat. Good job Rob.

    I would be nice if WWoC would promote Fchat at it's customers.

    It should be great if they also participate on Fchat, FE post pics of their showroom, answer on questions,...

    My Mondial is in the WWoC body shop right now (after having been rear-ended by an idiot). The WWoC selection was easy because I've heard nothing but positive comments from Jim and others in this forum.

    Oh and more importantly, do they have some type of pick up from your house and trailer to and back for a fee? If so I will have all major services done by them. Thanks guys.

    These guys are top-notch. I've purchased two 355's and my F40 from them, not to mention countless BMW's. Jim Murphy and Justin are super knowledgable and professional. Not a single weak piece to the dealership. Bodyshop is A+, Parts, etc also A+. Glad to see them take an interest in the FChat family.
