    I am from South Bend, Indiana.

    I do not own a Ferrari yet but have been looking what is out there. I would love to get a 355 but a 348 or 328 may be more obtainable right now. I have been considered waiting an additional year or two and getting a 355.

    Exotic Performance Plus in Ft. Wayne sells used Ferraris and they seem to have good prices. Bob, the guy who runs the place, is great to deal with and a super nice guy. They also have a dyno which can handle up to 1750 HP. They've had a supercharged 456 Stramann convertible on there as well as some wild TR's. If you get a chance go pay them a visit. Incidentally, if anyone is interested, we could maybe start some kind of weekend F-car get-togethers centered out of there. Anyone up for it?

    Ft. Wayne.....that's only 65 miles south of me....I'm amazed that there is an exotic car place that close to me here in southern Michigan. Where in Fort Wayne are they located? That's very cool! I would be in for a gathering down there if one could be arranged.

    They are at 2639 Goshen Road. They are just off I-69, but I don't remember the exit number. Let me talk to Bob and see what kind of event we could do. Maybe a dyno day and then a drive in the country and a meal or something. I'm guessing most likely all will want to wait until the weather warms up. I'll keep you posted.

    I'm just north of the Michigan-Indiana state line....so even though I'm from Michigan I hope you don't mind me visiting this thread. I am the lucky owner of a Testarossa.

    A small town south of us in Indiana...Fremont....is home to a white Testarossa, but I've never seen it personally. But some buddies of mine have seen it...but only when the garage door was open. Too Bad!

    I may just call Exotic Perf. Plus in Ft. Wayne, I recently completed an engine-out full service on my car, including new injectors. Now I need to get the fuel mixture adjusted and I would imagine they could help me. Perhaps in the spring.

    Hey
    I think that white Testarossa is mine.
    Did it have red and black leather?
    It was in for a HUGE service. HA HA lol


    Hey John
    How are you?
    My other car is still at Devins getting the SC done. We are going to dyno it on Saturday, if you want to swing by pm me.

    Exit 109.....I live in Fort Wayne, Indiana. :)

    The guy who owns EPP (Exotic Performance Plus) is a huge Ferrari collector (as of last year he had over 20 Ferraris) and the cars inside there are all his for sale. I had a friend who worked there and when I would visit there would usually be a 550 Maranello, F355 Spider, 456GT Straman Convertible (supercharged), 328 GTS, 308 GTS (euro), Mondial 8, and a Testarossa in there. All belonging to the owner and for sale.

    If you guys would like to get together I would love to help set something up. My only really fun cars are a couple Acura NSX's and my S2000, but I would love to participate (especially since I plan to get an F355 in the next 2 years). Let me know! Thanks! :D

    Meeyatch1,

    Let's try to plan something for Spring when the weather gets nice. I can talk to Bob who runs the shop if you want. Let's keep in touch through the board here.

    Talk to you soon.

    udalmia,

    Bloomington, huh? Have I got a drive for you!
    Go east on 46 to Nashville, hit 135 south (just east of nash.) go south to highway 58 west, take 58 to 446 north across Lake Monroe and back to your campus. That should give that little 360 a nice 2hr work out.

    If you do that drive, there are some other roads that I ran down there with some of my cars that were TONS OF FUN!! I will try and find the directions and give them to you...being out there alone on the roads with a Ferrari 360 would be awesome!! :D
