    Hi all, i ve been reading these forums for awhile, but now im deciding to join in on the posting. Anyways, im from Bethesda, MD and am 17. Unfortunately, my parents dont own any ferrari's and i can't convince my dad yet! (he drives and M3 conv. and my mom drives and XKR). Anyways, i'd love to join in on a run or any gatherings in the DC area. I hope my 1968 Chevelle which im almost done restoring will be able to keep up! Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself.

    Welcome aboard.

    You're a little south of us, maybe a bit far for a run, but welcome none the less.

    Greetings Jon, and welcome to the site. I'm also located in Bethesda. Next time there's a local drive/get-together, I'll let you know. If Barbara doesn't want to go, there's always room in the passenger seat. Or, if your Chevelle is ready, bring it along.
    Enjoy this site; loads of info and a great bunch o' people.

    Hey Jon,
    Welcome! Thanks for posting the pics. They bring back a lot of memories. I had a '69 Chevelle many years ago and I still like the lines of the car compared to the '70-'72. Good luck with your restoration. Keep the faith! You'll get an F-car one day!

    Nope, Stainless Steel Brake Corp., i was considering Baers and Wilwoods, but the SSBC's came in a couple thousand cheaper, for very similar brakes. dual piston fronts and single piston rears, stops really well!

    I think you will find this an interesting group of Ferrari enthusiasts.

    If you are interested check out this link:

    http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=50941

    It goes into specifics about a car gathering on Sunday mornings in Burtonsville, MD.

    Chances are, you'll see a Chevelle or 2, especially when Spring finally gets here.

    I'm hoping to get more Ferraris/exotics to show up.

    Cool, they look like C4 Vette brakes. Hopefully we'll see your car soon.

    Good to have you onboard. I work in the office building across from BCC. Maybe we can meet up soon for lunch? Your ride looks sweet. I do Chevy's too - got '67 and '04 Vettes.
