    Hi from Toronto

    I really like the new functionality. With the Canada thread on the front page perhaps more will participate.
    Still enjoying the nice weather, car is out almost every day. Sadly I haven't seen another Ferrari on the road here in weeks. There are lots around, I guess people don't dirve them. Or maybe we are all doing 140 kmh and so never see each other :)

    I'm down in London and we only have a smattering of 308s, 328s, 348s, 355s and one 360 that I'm aware of. Bummer that it's not like Vancouver, Toronto or the US, but still better than no FCars at all! Considering our population, I guess it's not bad.

    Do any of you know the folks at Ferrari of Ontario? Are they friendly enough to Ferrari fans that just want to come and look around? If so, what's the name of the person I should talk to? Thanks.

    Gerritv, growing up in Southern Ontario (Welland/Fonthill, south of St. Catherines), I only ever saw a 308 on two occasions - EVER! There was a few in Hawaii (mostly 308/328, 2-3 360's), but Seattle in '99/00 had a ton of f-cars pre-bubble-burst.

    I live in Boston now, and there's a fair number of them here in the area. My wife is American, and I'm here in law school, so we're going to stay in the States (MUCH better pay/lifestyle for lawyers and entrepreneurs). Still have all my family, some good friends, and fond memories of Canada.

    Hi Joe,

    I've been there once and they were very friendly. They have a nice 2nd floor with F-40, challenge cars, and other rare cars.

    Hey Tom, I've heard you guys have been having some pretty warm weather out in your end. I think its backwards since we in the West should be having that, we can give you our 0 degree temps in exchange... ;)

    At least its been sunny and clear here in Vancouver. Took the GT4 out after fixing and getting my fuel pump back in... Temps barely got up on the gauges during the drive!

    To all our neighbors to the North - I have a company in Michigan specializing in M-B and Ferrari parts. I am a distributor for 2 sponsors on this board (Valence and Hill Engineering). If you guys need parts (especially those of you in Ontario), look us up. Also, I get to Toronto on a semi-regular basis, so I can deliver to you when I'm planning to be in the area. We'd also be interested in getting involved in starting/supporting some club or just F-Car enthusiast events. PM me and let me know how I can be of service!

    Hey everyone, good to see lots of Canuck ferrari fans & drivers out there.

    Too bad the weather is going to sh*t and we wont be seeing anymore F-cars on the road for a while (last saw a red 360 spider 2 weeks ago, in T.o.). Thankfully there's this site to keep us entertained for the coming months.

    Whoever said go to Yorkville for F-car and exotic spotting, I second that!
