    oh, i dont care at all about awards, nor do I have a car that would be entered. I was asking because it's a bit of a drive, and was curious if it was worth driving up based on the amount of cars that would be there.

    I asked because I thought you were the organizer for some reason.

    Enjoy.

    525iT_Feen,

    Ahhh ok, please accept my most humble my apologies my friend. Look at all the clubs in attendance and this should give you a small idea as to if it is "worth it" for you to travel. The show is nearly in my back yard, per se, so if anyone needs a place to stay for an eve let me know. Mi casa es su casa.

    No apologies needed. Just a simple misunderstanding. Thank you very much for inviting me into your home, but i don't think that would be neccasary, since i can make it up there with friends or family rather fast. I'm also 15 years old, so i don't think your invite would still apply.

    Thanks again and hopefully i'll see you there,
    Olek

    Hey guys I am the organizer of the event. We are expecting 200 cars. The event is free. We request a $10.00 donation at the door for participants. Spectators can choose to donate to The Make A Wish Foundation of New Hampshire.

    Nothing like this has ever been attempted in New England. If it goes according to our plan, the event will get National Coverage next year. We have talked with Barry Meguiar and he is very interested, they have donated $500.00 and want T-Shirts and photos forwarded to Car Crazy.

    Our objective is to bring together the finest Exotic Cars and Car Enthusiast in the Northeast...and make a donation as a group to the Make A Wish Foundation.

    Make A Wish grants wishes to children with various types of Cancer. If you take a minute to think about who you are and what this is about...hopefully you will make an extra effort and I will see you there.

    The past couple of days I have been running around handing out the posters and flyers. Everyone is happy to help, many times without even reading the poster. Thanks to the internet, word has spread through the community and no intro is needed.

    Its not about me, or Viper verses Ferrari. ITs about the Hobby, Family, Community and the Children.

    I hope you understand.

    Steve, thanks !

    Jeff that's wonderful.
    One of my best friends sister made a wish to the foundation and was awarded a wonderful trip to the caribean for her and her family. I will try to go and take some photographs for you guys, and maybe you could put them to some good use.

    Best of luck to you with the show and hopefully it will do even better next year.

    I've just gotta make sure my friend Scott isnt behind the wheel that day, cause he is up in that area alot, and drives like a prick.

    Steven,

    Were you the gentleman with the DVD player in his car showing the Victory by Design Ferrari DVD and the blueprint of the engine in the rear of his car? The man in question called himself Steven to another fellow and I was unable to intorduce myself to you since it was a little busy around your car.

    Would have liked to see more "italians" there but all in all a nice little showing!

    Yes, it was a good show. Cars of many marques. Very entertaining. Although only 6 F-cars, we seemed to attract the most attention. One s/c'd Viper had a dyno graph just missing 700 at the wheels. But the best part of the day was when a certain Titanium colored Lamborghini drove away with the Best In Show trophy from a Viper sponsored event. The Viper folks were not amused :)

    Best F-car was a non-fchat member garage queen 84 512BB that was spotlessly clean and it should be with 1300 miles on the odo. Christ, I did that in the first 2 months I had my car.

    The problem was:

    a) The weather was questionable in the morning.
    b) The Ferrari Club is meeting up in Hartford, CT this weekend for the annual Concours Charity event.

    I tried to work the date out with everyone involved, had talked to Joe before his schedule came out for the year...but comunication broke down and the rest is history. There were 8 Ferrari cars at the show, I was happy with that. Thanks go to Steve for supporting this event. I did not have a chance to meet and properly thank him yesterday, running around like a chicken with my leg cut off ;-)

    It was a good event, just a bit long but I was glad to be able to help out the Make A Wish Foundation. My weekend was VERY enjoyable!

    Nothing like a little unstable weather to keep the Italians in the Gay-rage. "...Not that there is anything wrong with that".

    More acurate is the fact that there is the Concours in Hartford today.

    Just bad timing.
