    Ross,
    Assuming they don't want Lamborghinis to attend (sometimes they do), I'll man up and offer to drive one of your cars.

    They put the Lambos curbside on the street behind, or in the Garage.

    3x 348s, that's classic, now…...I took the Ducati.

    It's a great time and I loved seeing Franco back in fine form.
    He will have a very special car, to show this year!!!

    my guess is you were not included. but doesnt mean they wont include you if they need your model.
    you can ask them at events@ferrariofhouston.com

    I must admit the new location is a lot more interesting, except for not having Franco's new store within it....

    It does cap the number of cars as there's only so much parking within that quadrant of streets.
    I will take the Ducati!!!

    Problem solved....

    we got the catalog at the owners meeting last week.
    seems there are 60 cars belonging to owners, but my slots are 72 and 73, which means there are at least 13 more cars in the show...so maybe they are extras brought by FOH and Risi.
    anyway, among a sea of modern stuff, there will be a 250LM, a 275gtb, a Lusso, and my BBi and F40.
    too bad it will be limited to just those. i know more vintage stuff is out there, but i guess they dont want to show.

    They are following the money..

    No one wants to see my 308GTB which was always welcomed at the "drive in" Valobra shows.

    If Shawn Speer stays home that knocks out six Dinos, but he's still in it as of last year (and carries home a horse pretty regularly!)
    So are you staying in town to show, then??

    Nope, I'll be in Florida. Besides, the big city is scary. I'd rather watch the squirrels bury pecans.

    As I left last year, the Lutheran High North Band was coming in to perform, I was thanking the director as I knew personally of his work there.

    As I got ready to leave, one of the lads asked:
    "You are not married, are you?"


    "Well, almost....son...almost!"

    Texas!
    BTW, by "Big City," I meant The Woodlands. Houston terrifies me.
