    Spent a few days in Monterey. I was in the Ghiredelli chocolate store and met "lawwdog" and some of his friends. One of his friends had a Ferrari hat and I had on a Ferrari jacket so we introduced each other.

    Had a great time in California. Saw a 275 GTB, Dino, 355 in Walnut Creek. 355, Boxer, GTO-body 308 in Monterey, and the cars at FoSF (Enzo, 360CS, 512M, etc.).

    Looking forward to the Historics in August.

    Ah there you are! I hope you had a good time. That was my wife with the Ferrari hat on and a good friend and his wife. The Mint Chip was great.

    Hopefully you commit to the Concorse in August.

    nice meeting you!

    Mario

    P.S. You never know when you will run into a fellow F-chater.

    Mario,
    I am convinced. I will be there in August for the Historics and FCA 2004. Still debating on bringing the car.

    We would have gotten some Mint Chip, but we were full from dinner and wine at Fish Hoppers. Ferrari Carano wine of course.

    275GTB... I am so in love with that car. For me, that is in the top 3 of all auto body designs in the world.

    What Dino did you see.... a 246GT? If so, what color was it. The only two I have seen in the whole Bay area are mine (Burgundy red) and a friend in Los Gatos (silver concourse car). Interested if there is yet another around.

    thx,
    tony

    The Dino was red and in a shop along Main Street (I think) into Walnut Creek. Exit the highway and head towards the mall. Exit highway, right at the top of the exit, over the highway, first right towards the shopping district. It is in the window of Prestige Motors on the right with a 355 and a Porsche. The 275 was in front of an Italian restaraunt down the street from Pottery Barn in Walnut Creek.

    Roland,
    We had a blast - Monterey, Sonoma, San Fran. Looking forward to the Historics and more of Northern California. How is the LM snow plow? I bet it gets nice and low under the snow. I don't plow, and you have seen my truck so you know why.

    I remember my days growing up in Chicago... we all dreamed of getting a 4x4 with power take offs and a snow plow. Go around and make tons of money four wheeling around peoples driveways. Fun stuff.

    Roland, where in Colorado do you live?

    Is that the one in the showroom of the dealer there?

    Too bad Mule didn't stop by there, there's an Enzo in the showroom too.

    Which showroom? FoSF has a black Enzo and a yellow Enzo at the service department, but I didn't see an Enzo at Prestige in Walnut Creek where I saw the Dino. Of course, it was while driving by.

    Next BBQ, I'll have designated spot for your monster
