Okay, now that the egos have subsided and the trash talk is dwindling, its time to report the real event that happened on Saturday. Although it was very early to wake up on a Saturday morning, it was well worth it! Everyone at Ferrari of San Antonio was running around completing last minute details, while Ferrari Club members were hitting the road and the gas station! The first make-a-wish donation came about 8:15, from a gentleman who saw a convoy of Ferraris on 35 South, and followed them on into San Antonio. He opened the floodgates, and it was non-stop from that point on. There were children of all ages in attendance, and I think its safe to say their parents were having just as much fun! It took awhile, but even a dead-set-against-it mom finally took a ride in a 355 and promised to come back again next year. It's hard not to appreciate the Ferraris when you are totally immersed in them. Words cannot express the joy and absolute awe that was reflected in the faces of the children and adults that day. But the absolute best part of the day happened just as the last remaining Ferraris were preparing to head out for the day. A conversion van pulled into the parking lot and a 17-year-old in a wheelchair was helped out. Corey, a Wish-Kid from Laredo, made the trip with his mother and brother. Not only did they drive many, many miles just for a ride in a Ferrari but also braved very yucky weather at the same time. But we are so glad they did! Corey loves racecars, and mentioned he liked to race Ferraris on his many different gaming systems. Luckily, Dana hadn't left yet, so she pulled right up and took Corey for his ride in a 512BB. Dana, you were an angel that day...thank you so much! I still get goose bumps thinking about his smile, and how happy his mom was. It definitely made getting up that early...very, very worth it. Thank you again! Now, for a little clarification. Tsk tsk tsk...it seems we have a couple Pinocchios in our midst who have some growing noses. No, there wasn't a certain Stradale giving 20+ rides at over 180mph. No, we did not have street races where people were in danger. The Ferrari owners/drivers were very safe, conservative, and a lot of fun! There was only 1 ticket received that day, and believe me...there were a LOT of SAPD officers on the roads. Those of you from San Antonio still see them all over the place...we're in a "Zero Tolerance" zone right now. We had no choice but to keep it reasonable. And Ferrari of San Antonio would like to applaud and thank the Ferrari Club members and drivers for staying smart and staying safe. Whoa, that sounded like an after-school special tag line...oh well, its very true. David, Jim, Miguel, Wes, and everyone else I've missed...you guys were awesome that day! Its because of you all that we raised over $1400 for the the Make-A-Wish Foundation in one morning. We beat the last amount, so imagine what we can do next year...and maybe the newspaperll remember us next time! Thanks again, guys! And for those of you who missed the event for one reason or another, you truly missed a wonderful day that cannot be described on here, or anywhere else. It was one of those days that you honestly had to be here. And now you know (dramatic pause) the rest of the story... So...anyone wanna teach me how to drive F1??
