    All,

    I feel I have to step in here and make something extremely clear.

    I have now been in Houston for the past week, spending most of my time here with JR and an insolent Diablo as well as other cars.

    I can assure you that he is not posting in FChat, so when other trolls come on board and start stirring the sh!tpot please stop making the natural assumption that its JR. He has stopped posting in FChat altogether realizing it is counterproductive for him and FChat.

    As a friend I feel I have to stand up for the guy since he isn't reading any of this. No, I don't follow the guy home, but for the last few days we've been at the shop at least until 2 AM, and we get in around 10 AM. I may have lost a lot of credibility from some by sticking up for him but it's just gotten to a point that I can't sit here and see some of these references being made.

    Currently he has his hands full with two Diablos, an anniversary edition Countach, a Maserati Bora, a 246 Dino, a 512 BBi, Mondial 8, etc (read Porsches :)).

    Cheers

    Are you working for him now? What's wrong with the Diablo? Is it your Diablo? I know all about headache cars!! I have a BB512 that I have been working on(with JRV's help) that is driving me nuts!! Sometimes I wonder if it's worth it!!

    I wish I were working for him! Its like being a kid in a candy store. I'm semi retired so I follow my projects around. One of the Diablos in his shop (used in the James Bond movie Die Another Day, I think it was that one) is in their to see what needs to be done. The other is in for major surgery. Trying to fit some hardcore performance in there.

    Cheers

    Wasnt the car from Die another Day a clunker to begin with? Didnt the owner buy it in Europe and ship it here piece by piece or something?

    Stickanddice, im sending you an email now.

    I haven't seen any posts like this, but I don't have time to read through every thread. As the sole moderator right now, anyone can report a thread to me if they wish. Let me know if anything needs to be moderated at this time. I have no indications that JRV has been on the new site and I don't think anyone else should make any acquisitions. Individual users will be handled for inappropriate behavior no matter who they are. I realize this probably has happened because JRV did tick off many people, but no reason to accuse every new user on the board.

    I don't think it was sent piece by piece, but it looks like it was a clunker though. Rough running and a few body dings. The current owner wants to resurrect it.

    Who cares? He's posted quite a bit of crap in the past, and if he's gone for good, all the better. Why even mention his name?

    It's over in the "Ban Maranelloman" thread, Rob.

    Just passing ref's. Nothing really. I think Stick's comments are to the audience here.

    Visualize whirled peas. No, I mean world peace! Happy Holidays.

    I'm outta here!

    I wanted to close the Gary Green one down and to be fair I closed the the Dave one because it was similar. I wasn't doing it for the content, just didn't like the idea of voting for an individual anymore. Although I'm not saying I won't do it again. :D

    My Mother always told me to "look for the good in people."

    I try very hard to do this as much as possible. Doing it makes ME a better person, that I am sure of.

    As more people are able to think this way the world will be a better place.
