    Guys, the next Giovanni gig will be next Saturday 7/16 from 5:00 ish to dark ish. Featured car this month is Ferrari and Pantera.

    we will have more room this month to make sure all of the Ferrari guys have a great spot to park.

    Bob, please tell the entire Pantera club guys to come so we have a big showing of Pantera's.

    Giovanni's 3630 Peachtree Parkway, Suwanee GA 30024. 770-232-1122. if coming from Atlanta hop on 400 North to exit 13, make a right on exit 13 which is also highway 141 and or Peachtree Parkway. Go down about 5 miles and Giovanni's is on the right. If you go through Mcginnis Ferry Road you went too far. Giovanni's is in the Kohls shopping center so look for a big Kohls sign. Giovanni's is in that shopping center strip mall.

    Great food, lots of pizza, lots of drinks, good friends and plenty O cool cars for us.

    see you then.

    Brian

    Featured car this month is Ferrari and we have a dual feature, we are also including our Pantera friends. I spoke with a Pantera guy on Saturday at the Giovanni show and he is going to spread the word and get the Pantera guys to the Giovanni show.

    Dr Driggers, did you come to the last Giovanni event in your 360 ? I seem to only remember the silver 360 of Brian Willis.

    if we can get a bunch of Ferrari, Lambo, Pantera , it will be great .

    all of those Italian cars, at Giovanni's. I do believe we all need to take a nice drink O Vino Saturday to celebrate 1 year of Giovanni events.

    last July, it was 4 cars. Me, a couple other Lotus cars and Stephane. Now, we have grown to over 40 cars at each event.

    I guess, thats a tribute itself.

    Lets do that, lets make a toast this Saturday and give ourselves a pat on the back for 1 full year of Giovanni events. Each one, better than the next.

    Brian........I think you may have spoken with Dick Koch over the weekend. (he has the red twin turbo Pantera). I sent him a email just-in-case, but looks like you got to him first.

    (not sure I'll be there, I've got someone coming from Minnesota to buy the boat this weekend).

    Reminder. Giovanni's is this Saturday from 5:00 ish, to dark ish.. Feature is Ferrari & Pantera.

    we will drink a toast for celebrating 1 year of Gio events. should be fun. And, the weather man says the chance of rain for Saturday is deminishing every minute, so I am anticipating " epic " weather.

    anyone else interested in the Gran AM race caravan from A town to B ham on 7/31 ? we have about 10 guys so far.

    Sorry I couldn't come, but distance and weather conspired against me. I had already gotten the camera ready and changed clothes when I looked at the weather radar.

    At about 5:30 a rather noisy thunderstorm passed just north of Marietta and then proceeded right along the route I would have taken. Another storm approached the restaurant's location about 6:15; it split into two. One part moved just north of Giovanni's and I think the other one just clipped your area. I could have left here about 6:30 but decided it was too late to go that far.

    Oh, well, I hope someone else took good photos. I hope to make next month's gathering, just as long as it's not on the 6th or the 27th!

    we missed you Jim. we had about 90 % of the regular crowd, a couple newbies. still, considering the weather, we had a great showing.

    I would say we had 33 cars tonight, we usually get 40, but this wasnt bad. the Ferrari cars out numbered everything else. we had 2 Aston Martins, a Delorean, many Ferrari, probably 15 Ferrari, a few Loti, a few Porsche's, a Citreon, a Diablo, a few Cobra's, and a few 60's mustangs.

    it was a great show.

    we will do it again next month.

    Brian.....sorry I could not make it, I've had to hang here waiting on my guy from Minnesota to get the boat. (I will say this. The "F" crowd seems to be one of the most devoted crowds I've ever seen).

    Btw.........I saw (about 6pm-ish) a red 308 (forgive me, I'm taking F-Cars for dummies) head up my street. Never seen it around before. "could be a new owner in town?).........out here in Cumming.

    thats okay, we will do another Pantera day soon. a red 308 was at Giovanni's. maybe he was on his way there.. hmm.

    it is nice to see many exotics in Cumming, but they only seem to get togther at cool events.

    speaking of that, whats going on for next weekend ?

    7/31 is the drive to Barber for the Grand am gig, are you coming with the Pantera ??

    You're fast Jeff, I just got home and don't know how to get the pictures re-sized from this new camera. I guess I'll work on it tomorrow.

    Oy, vey, I'm seeing red!! :D

    Since I wrote my last reply, we've had two more t-storms pass thru Marietta, so I think I made the right choice. I passed the time away by watching the movie about Enzo Ferrari's life. Very interesting......

    BTW, I checked on Mapquest and the trip from here to Giovanni's is 50 miles roundtrip. Does anyone else travel that far to get there?

    320 miles round trip for me, and worth every one to see the beautiful cars. All of the cars were stunning in person. I even talked my wife into letting me stop at FOA for the first time.
