    Hi guys

    I want to take the chance to introduce myself.

    I have been lurking on these board for a few months now, you see I feel like I am sick in the head, I can no get enough of F-cars, I look on here everyday with anticipation at the post and the pictures that are here.

    I was intimitaded to register and get my own name because I felt that since I did not own a Ferrari I would not be welcome or accecpted (but I could not see all of the pics posted so I was dissappointed). After reading on here for a while I realize that you guys are a wonderful bunch of people with the same love of cars that I have, you are just fortunate enough to be able to afford a F-car, as I one day aspire to. Right now I am just trying to pay for my house and get enough money in the bank so that I can be comfortable enough to be able to afford one of these wonderful, I could imagine nothing worse than buying a Ferrari and not having the money to be able to maintain it.

    A little about the cars that I do have. May not seem impressive to you guys, but I love sports car and fast cars. I have a 05 GTO (Pontiac) and a 04 350z(in the Daytona Blue) While not F-cars I love both of them, they both offer something very different.

    I will be posting on here from time to time, but mostly just enjoying your post and pics.

    WELCOME to the wide world of F-cars and their crazy owners !!

    Of course you are welcome here even if you don't own a ferrari (YET ;)

    MANY of the members here started out just like you (myself included) with no car. Through hours and hours spent on here picking the brains of some of the most knowlegable (sp?) ferrari experts on the planet you will be amazed at the things you can learn from the people on here.

    If you haven't done so yet, (I didn't look) fill in your profile before people get all in a tizzy ;)

    nice cars you have, too.

    enjoy the addiction !!!!!!

    John

    Stay tuned..... I'm kinda curious just what his program is. His membership as 350black seems to have been a normal enough for the last 6 months and now this. It's interesting that the two accounts here have relatively similar occupations (Market Guy, Banker) but the account on ChicagoZ says Flight Instructor. If you do a web search for "siucavflight" you will also find him over at flightinfo.com where he claims to have a bit of experience flying:

    Aircraft Experience:
    C-172, C-152, PA-28-200, BE-76, SR-22, C-182, C-177, CJ1, Cit650

    I fill out my profile with a bunch of funny BS but I have never hidden my identity from anyone. I meet as many FC'ers as possible, will drop you a pm next time I'm in Alabama.

    How do you think it looks to a new guy ?

    Maybe he's full of it, if so it will come out soon enough, i just think we should give everyone the benefit of doubt before we start trying to tear them down on a public site.


    He could be legit and now will go away thinking why would I want to log onto fchat ?

    New guy? He's been around as 350black for 6 months so he should have seen the way these kind of things get handled.

    As for the general impression new users get from this site...... You have a good point, it's not good when new users are harassed without reason. It really irritates me when a new user is given the Gary Green treatment for no other reason than they asked a few simple questions about Ferraris. The FC police thread is where these things should be hashed out before things start flying in one of the regular sections. I check it often and will use my mod powers to check out any suspects.......

    Mark, so if I were to sign up my alter ego with a different name and make up some impressive background info, you could ferret me out and also expose all past internet indiscretions???? Scary business. Impressive too!!!

    Depends on how bored I am...... just this morning I banned a second identity that a long time member had been using to stir up trouble with. I'm gonna be giving him a call a little later to talk about the rules.

    Rather amusingly the subject of this thread sent me a PM asking that I edit the email address he had used to register his other account with. Apparently he didn't want his last name to be exposed to further public scrutiny. Unfortunately he seems to have forgotten that he posted it in the thread at ChicagoZ about getting that ticket......

    He hasn't posted under 350black since the beginning of Jan. Is it possible that he forgot his username? Maybe he just wants a clean slate..........
