    Hey John, good to see you here at Ferrarichat. We met at the Ferrari French Quarter Concourso. Monte and I were the 288/F40/F50/Enzo judges at the concourso, and more specifically, I was the 328 that led you back to the hotel. How is that beautiful Best of Show 288? Hope to see y'all again in Nov.

    Love your car on Dream Car Garage. Did you give them a few choice words for doing that burn out? :)

    Griot's Garage sells very good towels. I use their 100% cotton polishing cloth with Meguiar's detail sprays on my black 360 (very soft paint). They have wheel chocks too. www.griotsgarage.com

    Thanks Willis, Peter asked if he could do the burn out and I ok'd it. as far as the chock is concerned I need the one from the factory and the clothe as well, they are very hard to find.

    Hi John,

    Welcome to Fchat. Saw you on MeQuires Car Crazy- thanks for the kind words about the French Quarter Classic. But no one drives 70MPH down Bourbon Street! That would be illegal and we never bend that law down here.

    You're right the wheel chock and wiping cloth are very hard to find.

    You can try:

    Paul sells old toolkits. He lists a complete Dino tool kit including the chock and cloth.

    The 250 GTO was a beauty and then later the 288 GTO was made ....and just look at this car!! Beautiful!! You can't go wrong with a car like that.

    I hope Ferrari will bring to the market a new GTO one day.

    John, (nice name by the way)
    Hope to see more pics of your 288 GTO .

    John,

    I enjoyed seeing your car in New Orleans as well. Any reason you didn't bring the Dino?

    Anyways, welcome aboard. You will find this site to be very pleasant and full of knowledgable enthusiasts. Just don't mind the occasional riff raff that stir things up here!:)

    Looking forward to reading your future posts...

    John, great to see you on FerrariChat.com. I believe I saw your GTO a couple years ago when I met Chris Parr at the shop.

    Good to have Steve P. back on here too after a brief absence.

    DAMN! I will be in Spain all next year and have to miss this spectacular event. Oh well, I know that the event will be very well documented. So I will "attend" the event vicariously through this site.

    Cheers!
