    Thought this would be a good time to say hello. I have scanned this site for a while, now it seems time to post. Currently I have a 360 Challenge race car and recently took delivery of a Stradale. Nice car, not a race car by any means but a very competent, very quick street car. Have not yet had both at the track together but it will be interesting. Will keep you posted.

    Hey, Tom! Welcome to FerrariChat!

    We have met out at TWS. I'm the tall guy from Austin with the silver 550 Maranello & the silver BMW M3. During one of the Ed Paez days, we had lunch at Schlotsky's, remember?

    Long time no see. I hear you are running in the Challenge series now--congrats!

    Are you doing Ed's event next month?

    Welcome! Congrats on the cars... got any pics?
    Does a man with a Challenge get the stripe on his CS, or not? ;)

    No stripe. The car is the Rosso Scuderia red with the red/black seats, the fire extinguisher, quick battery charger and the radio - cd unit. Although the engine sounds great it is nice to have a choice of sounds.

    Thomas, was that your puppy, oh ah, Stradele on the floor at FOH? Great looking car. Please keep us posted as to your thoughts on the car versus a flat out Challenge car.

    Hi Tom, glad to see that you're posting here. I'm also glad to see that you took delivery of the Stradale. Are you keeping both cars?! Last time we talked you assured me that wouldn't happen! :)

    I missed you at the last PCA DE. Perhaps next time I visit the folks we can get together and look over the new car.

    Best regards,
    Todd Chen

    Dr. Murphy,

    Nice to finally see you on F-Chat. I think a few months back I asked David if you ever got on here.

    We've never met, but I was friends w/ David when he went to Lake. I haven't talked to him in months, how's he liking SMU?

    That picture was taken on the streets of New Orleans in October 2003 in the race car! This after driving through the French Quarter with a large Police escort at a rather QUICK pace.
    Only in N.O.
    I am bringing both cars to the track in January. So If your'r interested in how they compare.......
