    Guys,

    Are there no interested souls out there? We need to get a bunch of Maranello's best out, shoot stills, action video, interiors, engine bays, etc. This would be fun. Email me if you are interested.

    I cannot believe that there are no souls out there that want to participate !! I have tried to organize this event in conjunction with a small informal get-together to celebrate Enzo's birthday at a friend of mine's Italian restaurant. He is from the old country, the same small town outside Rome where my mother was born, (Sperlonga) and prepares AUTHENTIC ITALIAN CUISINE, not the americanized, Ragu-style crap most people are used to ingesting. I recommended him to the organizers of the Italian Car Day and they just blew him off. It's amazing, his food is far better that the white-bread slop they have had the last several years. I have never ceased to be amazed at all the arrogance there is out there in the Ferrari community !!! We are ALL members of an ELITE group, Ferrari owners, and yet some people in this so-called community have their noses so high up in the air that I'm surprised they have not been broken by the angel's bowling balls !! Anyway, I know the reason no one wants to participate, it's because MOST people who own Ferraris are nothing but POSERS !!! They are scared to drive the cars the way they are supposed to be driven, when a car nut approaches them to say: "hey man, cool car" they turn their nose up in the air because heaven forbid a peon, non-Ferrari owner DARE to speak to them !! Very disappointing. FORZA FERRARI !!!

    WE DO drive our cars they way they were designed...ON THE TRACK, not for the benefit of ex-ricers who want to shoot a boutiqe video that are really a dime a dozen. On the street it would be a fool who drives without proper considerations for the driving environment.

    BTW.. WE had a commitment with Giovanis this year for catering the show. Giovanis gave us the quality of food at the price we needed to pay. We had ABSOLUTELY NO complaints about food quality or quantity. In fact we had compliments. FYI 2003 was the second year we had a restaurant cater our show. All prior years a handful of dedicated volonteers comandeered our kitchens to PREPARE THE MEALS OURSELVES with our own hands. We bust our collective asses on this show, in preparations and working the event itself. We operate the show on a shoe string budget and strive to give the BEST SHOW for dollar. I say this for all the hard working individuals who volunteer their time and efforts, whom, you've all insulted, as well on behalf of Govanis (one of the BEST Italian restaurants in the area and who we are greatful to for their willingness to do an off-site event). At the end of the day there is no real profit. The reason we do it is FOR THE LOVE OF THE ITALIAN AUTOMOBILE.

    YOUR comments, sir, are the disappointment and it seems that YOUR nose is pointed towards the sky.

    My comments were not directed to MadTurk who originally suggested a video. Appologies to MadTurk if he (or anyone else) may have thought I was calling him an ex-ricer. He definately is one of the good guys and his intentions were / are in the right place. even though he should be more careful filling up his car ;^P

    I am in. I am sick of these guys that keep saying " WE DO drive our cars they way they were designed...ON THE TRACK. These car that we drive are not race cars! " As long as we don't danger anyones lifes, do anything crazy I am in. But I don't wanna be the only Ferrari and bunch of ricers. Keep me posted if you guys get anything organized. SAFELY. We don't wanna run over people in SUVs.

    Hey Jeff you are right. No way I put more then 10 bucks worth of gas in it now. No need for appologies. You are right though I do wanna do a video done safely. I have no interest in a ricer show. It'll be fun. I hope you will be a part of it.

    Also, I don't think that we are in a ELITE group just because we own one of these cars. People do forget sometimes that they are just cars. Don't get me wrong fanatics, I love my car but the reality is they are just cars. But for the most part most owners that I met are pretty nice guys I think. Some just don't like people speeding in public roads. Which I understand. But some over defend.
    If you wanna be a part of a ELITE group go win a nobel price.
    Best of luck.

    I am interested. I have a friend with a black '99 C5 and one with a black '02 Z06 that would probably be interested as well. Setup a time/date/location and maybe we can get this thing going. I have access to two digital camcorders (mini DV).

    Now you are talking Madturk !!! I would like to shoot for the 21st of February so we could have a get together to commemorate Enzo's birthday as well. I know there is some dispute as to the actual date but since the previous weekend is Valentines Day I'm sure those of us with wives, girlfriends or significant others would not be too happy with us playing with our toys on that day. Anyway, all I am saying is that I have met a handful of great, well-meaning people in Ferrari-related groups, however, so many more are so uptight, arrogant and very aloof and stand-offish. I have NEVER put anyone in danger with my driving, and that is not my opinion that is a matter of fact which can be verified by my EXCELLENT driving record since I was 16 years old. (a fact that can be verified with my insurance agent) I have ZERO points on my record, how many of you can say that? All I am saying is that it is NOT dangerous to occasionally stomp on it, PROVIDED that there is not a road full of cars. I am NOT talking about wrecklessly weaving in and out of cars. Anyway, madturk and anyone else interested, let's do it.

    FORZA FERRARI

    How do you not get any tickets????????? I am speechless, good for you. Anyways I am in. I might be able to get another guy with a 355 and BMW M. Nothing too crazy, no traffic stuff at all. I don't do that stuff anymore ( But I might if challenged, I don't trust myself fully yet to say NO or let the guy in the Corvette pass ). So, no dangering any lives and no racing in traffic!!!! Must be done safely.

    Email me, I have a friend with a 512TR, another with a 355b if I can convince him to come from FLA and several others. As I mentioned at the start of the thread I would like to "wrap up" the day at a FINE DINING establishment without all the hoity-toity snootiness, it's owned by a friend of mine from the old country and he still has all his family in Italy, has a summer home there near my familia and his sisters always bring me gifts from the Galleria whenever they come to visit. He and his young son are Ferrari, MS and F1 nuts and love to get together with like-minded people.

    Feb. 21st sounds good. Have any ideas as to what roads will be used? I was thinking some up north would be good, around the Vogel State Park area. Maybe a cruise up 400 then a run through Vogel and the surrounding parts. I also have a silver NSX that may be interested in being a part of it.

    Okay-yes it is a good idea but it needs to be done in conjunction with some other activity. I like your idea about tying it in with a get together at a local restaurant. I would be up for this but some one--maybe you (Tifosi 69) needs to come up with a specific plan, date and how to accomplish your goal. Give me a plan that says we will meet at x location at y date. Also include that we will use these roads and that there will be x number of in car cameras and exterior cameras, that you want interviews with owners, detail shots and speed shots. In short, instead of complaining about lack of interest take charge of the event yourself and make it happen. If people show up then great, if they don't then you learn it was a bad idea. Amazing how free choice/free market concepts work.

    Okay since no one wants to organize a car drive/video shoot lets see if I can get the ball rolling:

    Date: Feb 21st

    Start Location: Ferrari of Atlanta parking lot

    Time: 9:00-9:30 AM. We start the run up north on GA 400 at 9:30-9:45

    Route: Us 129 North to US19 at Turners corner. Stop to allow cars to "collect" Continue up 19 to Route 180 to Route 60 and Suches and then south on 60 to Dahlonga. Stop at various places for video shoots. (TBD)

    People can then head home and clean up for party at my house or come straight on over.

    We need someone(s) who can do the video shoot and has the proper equipment. Any volunteers?

    PS: If someone wants to make changes to this-go for it!!

    So how many are planning to show up so far? I have one black C5 for sure, possibly a black '02 996 TT. (he's concerned about the distance he has to drive, he lives inside Atlanta, silly P-car owners, heh)
