    Had a chance to stop by Ferrari of Atlanta last Saturday; VERY nice place... Vastly different from Ferrari of Long Island in both size and appearance... Had a chance to meet Steve Eckhoff; very nice guy, we talked for a while... If you ever have the chance, stop by their... Best of all, they had an NNO...!!! :)

    What are you doing in Atlanta? You should have gave me a call. That's not to bad of a trip for me. I have yet to make it up there to check it out but the place looks nice. I take it the Enzo is for sale. You should have checked out the Lambo place up there as well. I hear it's very nice also. Thanks for the pics.

    Yeah, if you drive all the way down Roswell Road, you eventually come across Lamborghini of Atlanta, which is right next to a BMW dealership... It looked nice, but we didn't stop... Maybe another time...

    So dude, i hear you were in New Orleans not too long ago... What were you doing, preparing for November...? :D

    I live just under 45 minutes away and I STILL haven't been there. I'd really like to go....maybe once things settle down with work and school. Nice photos Carbon...those'll light a fire under me to get out there and see it in person.

    LOL, Jim, i'm not sure, but on a 33 gig computer, i've got about 5 gigs remaining...

    The fellow "winding up" the 575 was actually fixing a flat... The gentleman who owns the car got a flat and used the car's fix-a-flat to get him to the dealership; once their, they took care of the rest...

    FOA has become a regular place for me recently. I have a car being worked on right now...the third one in a row. They are fine people and I enjoy doing business with them.

    If I didnt know any better than 550 Maranello in Rosso Fiorano looks exactly like my car. Except mine is in my garage right now. What a beautiful color.

    From what I was told, the Enzo isn't for sale. In fact, the owner has never driven it. Go figure. He also owns the 550 Barchetta they recently sold and several other Ferraris.

    NNO, so you came into Atlanta under cover, eh? I must have scared the #$%out of you a couple weeks back!! Next time you visit, let us know. I'm only 20 minutes from the airport.

    LOL, Bill... Actually, i was hoping to chat with you when you called Bruce's office that couple of weeks back when you and i were going back and forth in off-topic... You sound like an alright fellow and any friend of Bruce is a friend of mine, so it would've been a pleasure to meet you and shoot the breeze... i'll be back down there and when i am, i'll definitely let you know... i'm not sure where the airport is, though, as i took the train from NY to ATL...


    As far as the NNO in the showroom goes, it looked sweet; a damn shame that it sits there, though...

    Well, for one, FoA is HUGE...! FoA LOOKS LIKE Ferrari of Atlanta and not Maserati of Atlanta, whereas FoLI looks like Maserati of Long Island - meaning, they have just as many Maseratis there as Ferraris and the Maseratis are always up front and you can barely see the Ferraris when standing outside... The folks at FoA were a LOT friendlier than the folks at FoLI... The "boutique" for Ferrari-related items (toys, clothing, misc. para.) was RIGHT THERE in the dealership, not half a mile away in some obscure location behind a Land Cruiser dealership... So was the service department, for that matter...

    Carbon,

    Too bad you couldn't wait till May to come into town. The Ferrari Challenge is at Road Atlanta on May 15-16 I think.
