    I know you guys have posted information about what the events are, etc. but for the sake of meeting other FCers, etc. etc (Jordan's dinner is #1 on my list).

    I'll start.

    Ferrari Chat Dinner
    Concourso Italiano
    (Vintage Races)

    In chronological order:
    Friday: Concorso Italiano
    Friday night: Jordan's Dinner
    Saturday: Vintage Races
    Sunday: Pebble Beach
    Monday is a sort of free day...
    Tuesday (even though Jordan needs to be back in Irvine on Tuesday): FCA Concours - supposed to be a ridiculously awesome array of the finest automobiles Ferrari has ever offered... Someone help me convince Jordan to stay on Tuesday... :)


    PS: So far, there are 17 (YES, SEVENTEEN!) 250 GTOs registered for the Vintage Races, among LOADS of other really cool cars, including all sorts of Vintage Ferraris, ranging from 330 LMBs to 250 TDFs to a 312 formula car and a bunch of other stuff... i am so stoked, i can't wait to get there, to see Jordan again, meet a bunch of fellow chatters who i've yet to meet and, last but not least, see some of the most beautiful cars the world has ever known.

    I was just talking to some folks and apparently the cars at Pebble Beach will also be at the FCA Concourse on Tuesday (less $150 entry fee). Can anyone comment on this?

    I haven't even started planning my weekend yet, geez. I know I'll be spending a good amount of time at the historic car races, defintely my favorite part of the entire event. Well I will be going to the f'chat dinner, but thats all I know.

    Why not? Are they going to lock you in the room? Chances are if you're there on Friday you'll run into some f-chatters, stop and say hello.

    Actually, I hadn't planned on staying until Tuesday either. Do we even have a room for Monday night or will Carbie be sleeping in the sand at Asilomar Beach (been there; done that... too many times to count) and then hitching a ride home on Tuesday?

    He does not need a room, he stays up all night and parties like it is 1999 :)
    I remember Vegas and I remember LA. He managed to get less sleep than Marion and I did.

    LMAO...!!!


    Mr. G., i've lost a FEW pounds since moving to HOTlanta, but not enough to really notice, i guess... How much tighter can 0846 be than 2819 - it's the only thing i have to go on since i actually fit in 2819... :) - i don't use a pillow, if that helps... :D


    Wayne, i'm going back to Irvine on Monday, with Jordan; initially there were plans to stay until Tuesday, but that's not in the cards... All the cars at the FCA Concours will be at Pebble on Sunday, anyway... However, if we can help it, i'd like to leave as late as possible on Monday...

    Martin, you and Marion slept that weekend...? Hmmmmm... :)

    LOL! He'll Never fit........

    But if I'd known accomodations were available, for a SKINNY GUY!!!!
    And I'll need the seat to recline a little..........


    And the beach thing could work.......

    I was stuck in a Triumph Spitfire overnight once....a little creaky the next morning......

    The Trans Am is real comfortable...air seats and all...used it during Hurricane Allison. We didn't sleep much though.....

    Find that hard to believe. I can see it being the other way around, though.

    I will be at the Concorso on Friday with my car and then its the races for me all weekend. Only event I am planning on going to is the FIAT Dino Dinner on Friday night. Its being held next to the F-chat dinner so we will all be in the same parking lot I understand, that will be fun.

    Good question. I'll probably have an FCA nametag on (if I can find it). The rest of the guys have three eyes and tails. Can't miss em.

    Someone needs to make up a bunch of shirts that say "I know Carbon McCoy" in great big letters. You can use it as the F-Chat spotters shirt.
