    Dear Friends:

    Invitations have been sent out for the FQC6 which will take place from November 3-6.

    The event will be more intimate and more outrageous and more upscale than years past. To achieve this we are cutting the spots available to half, and can only accept the first 75 cars. If you recieved an invitation, and wish to come, please register ASAP.

    SPEED CHANNEL will be covering the event this year and will air a special program on the event. We will have special hollywood celebrity guests, two former F1 drivers, several F1 cars, and a special suprise guest from Scuderia Ferrari.

    Once again, and unlike nearly any other event, all profits from the event will benefit charity.

    If you would like more info you can visit the web site and register online at www.frenchquarterclassic.com

    John W. Houghtaling, II

    A lifetime of memories! Its kind of like buying a Ferrari, if you have to ask the price you will probably never understand. :)

    The agenda is posted on the website and the price includes everything but the hotel. Having been lucky enough to go last year, I planned my work schedule and vacation around it this year.

    Trying to keep up and then watching Roland disappear on I-10 is worth $1750 all by itself.

    If you want photos I'm sure I have them, but when you say "ticker tape" do you mean it has a checkered stripe? I know that reference shouldn't throw me off, nevertheless...

    I looked through my pics again and didnt find any pics of your car.
    Great looking car, I'm surprised I missed it.

    Wes,

    I have many photos of your car. It is also in the video at least once I can think of off the top of my head :)

    I will try to post up some photos tomorrow after work.

    I remember taking a picture of your car outside the house where we had the awards ceremony. I remember telling you that I'm glad someone put some designs on their car, and didn't keep it red or yellow. I also noticed that the ticker symbols were done in red, white and green. Sneaky!
    The pictures are on www.geocities.com/rickyc.rm/Mansion.html or, they're linked to it!

    Hey boss, I indeed will be in attendance. This time, without a car. Actually, JUST like last time! I should probably get in touch with my "friends" from Rick's before I get there. :-D

    I noticed the cost jumped, and I didn't look at the itinerary... is there a noticable reason for the jump, or is it just better for the charities?

    There have been a few questions about cost.

    We have cut the entires in half from 150 to 75, but we wanted to do it with the same budget, (which required the raise). In short we will have better quality in a more intimate setting, and more of a benefit to our charities. Thanks to our incredible sonsorship the cost this year, like last year, is over $1,000 below the per person cost!

    BTW. We are about 75% booked, with the invitations having gone out just two weeks ago, so if you recieved the invite and planned on coming, please accept ASAP. We sent out double the invites than the spots available, so its first come first serve.

    John

    Hi John. Dale Spradling here. Sorry but it looks like I will not be able to make this year. My bad. I'm sure that you're gonna let the good times roll as always.

    Have fun, Dale

    What is the spectator price going to be this year. Also is the price escalating or am I just getting poorer?
