Hey everyone, first post here on Ferrarichat for me, so I thought I'd introduce myself and say hello! My name is Brendan Prout, I'm a junior pastor at Canyon View Christian Fellowship, located in sunny San Diego. Longtime Ferrari aficionado-but-can't-affordo and lurker here on the boards (registered after the Coronado Classic Speed Festival last year but lost my password and never bothered to get a new one emailed to me til now). I'm 30 years old, have been married for 4.5 years, and my wife and I just welcomed our first child into the world, a boy named Jay. He's 4 months old and already smiles when I say "ferrari". My wife, bless her heart, supports me in my car addiction and has given me permission to get a trashed F-car if I come across one that I can afford (challenging on a pastor's salary). I've been on the hunt for a damaged 308 GTB, GTSi, or Qv for some time now... that seems to be the only way I'll have my dream car, is to get it damaged or outright wrecked, and spend some time rebuilding and restoring it... which is fine by me, I'm looking forward to a Ferrari 308 as a project. I have to admit, I've been a fan of the car since I saw Magnum PI as a youngster. And there seem to be plenty of fire damaged 308's around SoCal. Currently my small fleet consists of a 73 Fiat Spider 1600S with 21k original miles (father was original owner), a Corrado RSR-G60 with 283k miles (my baby), a Corrado SLC-VR6 with 59k miles, and a 4x4 Pathfinder V6. Previously I've driven a couple of Alfa GTV6's, a couple Fiat spiders, a Porsche 944, an Austin Mini Cooper Radford S, and a few vehicles not worth mentioning. Other interests: I am a musician -- my main instrument is guitar and I have a small harem, ahem I mean collection of them. I also play bass, keys, drums, violin, viola, and yes the banjo. I've been in bands for many years and have several CD's recorded, but most of my music time now is spent at church involved in leading the worship ministry there. I'm a huge Star Wars fan, scifi, fantasy, ComiCon type of nerd. I love Recaro seats, european cars in general, playing Halo on Xbox with a big group of friends, and hanging out with other car enthusiasts. Anyways, that's about it for now. Looking forward to getting to know you all!
