Does anyone know what the date for next year will be and when notices will be published ?
The French Quarter Classic 5, will take place from November 11th to 14th, 2004. Spots are very limited. We will be accepting approximately 100 cars. Invitations will be sent out in the next two months to invite first those participants of previous years. Those people will have a tentative reservation, and spots will be held for them for a certain timeframe. After that timeframe the reservations will expire, those spots will free up, and new invitations will be sent out.
Although this is an invitational only event, with past participants being invited first, there will be many spots availble for additional guests. These spots will be created by increasing the event's size by 20%, and the fact that not everyone from years plast will be able to attend.
For those new potiental guests we will be taking applications which will be available online. at www.ferrarifrenchquarterclassic.com. You can download and fill out those applications. The applications will be available online by Jan. 15th. Applications will be reviewed and acceptances will go out well in advance of the event. The acceptance commitee will use some guedelines for new guests. The guidelines are non-exclusive, and just some of the factors used for acceptance of application. The factors are weighted in this order:
1) the date the application is sent in (the earlier the better);
2) the existance or non-existance of a referal from past guest;
3) the strength of any referal;
4) person's driving/participation experience in similar driving/track/concorso events;
5) Model of car(s), and history;
If you are interested in recieving an application please let us know
Hey Folks, this thing is almost more fun than the law allows. I highly suggest that anyone thinking of going to get your mojo working. Indeed, the only negative that I can think of from this year's event is that this event can't continue forever. So get it while you can!
I've said it once and I'll say it again.....you cannot have a better time with your car and friends then at this event.
Yeah Matt, where else would you get the oportunity to snap a cool pic like your avatar or our infamous 140 mph?!?
On jackstands, of course.
LOL! Uhhh yeah, that's the ticket, jackstands.......in my-..uhh...Michael Schumachers garage....yeah....with Rubens holding the camera....yeah, that's the ticket! LOL!

Nowthat I have the dates, I better order some studed tires to get out of the ranch...This will be Winter here, of course, you guys in the swamps land, you don't know what this is all about.
I will install a plow on the LM if the spoiler can't do the job, power will OK I just wonder for the clearance !!
See you next year,
There has been a slight delay in the website applications. The website will be up and ready for the downloading of applications by Friday, Jan. 23rd.
If you are a previous attendee you can expect your invitation by Febuary 5th.
I want to go. I NEED to go. My life may actually depend on GOING!
I will of coarse complete and mail in an application. What else can I do? I drive a Daytona. I would drive it to the event... on the track.... heck I may even let my wife drive it if I get into this thing!
Bribery? Begging? What exactly is the best way to get into this thing?????
'69 Daytona 12775
Anyone here on F-chat willing to give me some sort of valuable referral????????
*** I did fax over the entry.... Im guessing it would be smart to wait for confirmation of acceptance before making hotel reservations?
I am pretty sure the organizers would love to have you, your wife, and your Daytona be a part of this incredible event. Hope you make it!
Your priorities are off, dude! Way off!
I have already faxed in my application and reserved a suite. My wife and I are both crossing our fingers that we are invited and look forward to driving the Boxer through the streets of New Orleans.
There is NOTHING more important than SAT NIGHT in TIGER Stadium . NOTHING. The only possibility of missing a game would be a non SEC game but I will never miss a SEC game. Besides my wife grew up in Alabama
Sorry I'm goin to see the Ferrari's!
We have 20 added spots set aside for vintage/classic cars. We have only about 4-5 vintage/classic applications ahead of you. Your car will count as vintage/classic, so if you Fax in your application in the next week, and you should have no problem getting one of those spots.
See you in New Orleans! "Bring your helmet, your tux, and hold onto your hat!" '04 will be a great ride.
As an aside the Video is out. You may wish to order a copy. It is really fantastic, and gives you a great pre-view of what will be bigger and better this year.
Excellent! My application is already there....
I'll go ahead and do the hotel reservation and call off the huge mail in campaign of pleading referrals and the Michael Jackson extorsion scheme that Frank swore would work. See all you F-car nuts in New Orleans!
The bottom line is that every year gets better exponentially. I wish that I could be there this upcoming year, but I will be living in Spain.
This is an event that breaks all barriers each and every year. I know that all participants will more than get their $$$ worth(Frank, Dale, Terry, Malcolmb, Roland, Dave, John, Jim, Kelly and many many lucky more...)
A fantastic event that is quicky becoming one of the premier Ferrari events of the world.
See "FQQ III" threads when searching. DES and Matt Lamotte came down, due to John Houtaling's generosity. I was fortunant enough to briefly meet most of the LA crew, and if you miss out next year...........too bad...
Luckily I got to move 2 333sps into place, along with the Breadvan, and finally Monte's early 60s NART f1 car. Talk about a treat!!!
If you miss this event you will be left wondering how/why you neglected one of the top 3 Ferrrari experiences of the year...
John, a Boxer is a classic car too you know. The Ferrari company itself has it listed as a classic in the spare parts section on the Ferrari owners web site !
