    Hello all -

    New to the community - my name is james - on Lopez Island. Looking for other FChat'ers in the San Juans/Vancouver area. Anybody out there? My 'other car' is a 330GTC. Hasn't seen sunshine in about 4 months!

    Eric Hawley is out your way (San Juans)with a 330 and 456M. If you wish to speak to the guys in Vancouver, you need to go to the "Canada" sub set.

    BTW, I arrange for the Seattle FCA members to make an annual trip up to North Vancouver for the Italian Car Show at the waterfront park on Father's Day weekend.....You need to join the club, we do drives and events all year round.

    We have a luncheon/drive with the Vancouver guys in May, we meet in LaConner.

    We met at Semiahmoo Resort last fall for lunch to.

    Hi James,

    Yes, there are a few of us out here. My 330 GTC and I live on Shaw! A little rain or snow can't keep us inside.


    I've met a few other fcar owners on San Juan as well, and we've started a local club of Island car enthusaists. Not real active, but we do at least a couple events a year.

    And of course, there are few members in Mt. Vernon and surrounding areas. Most not on FChat, but are members of the FCA. If you're not already a member, you ought to join. We do some fun events and the gang is a really great bunch of crazies.

    Welcome. I lived on San Juan Island for a few years. When I lived there 90% of the roads were gravel so I was stuck with an "Island" car for a while.

    This is one of the most active clubs I've ever seen and a great bunch of guys.

    The run to Canada on Fathers Day is a blast and the Childrens Benefit Vintage races on 4th of July weekend is a 'must go'.

    Any pictures of your car?

    Nice picture Eric. But I want to see the shot of you doing donuts in the library parking lot! ...Oh wait they don't have a parking lot, they have an intersaction and if I'm not mistaken, we slid across it on that last attempt.

    Sorry, I had avoided this thread because I thought you were refering to Vancouver WA. Obviously, I got my geography totally confused (and off by several hundred miles on top of it!).

    Yes, I live just outside of Vancouver B.C.. Our biggest event in the year is the Father's Day show (with the dinner the night before), but I'm with the Alfa club as well and we put on a few other (smaller) events and drives too.

    Hello Peter -

    Good to hear from you. Yes, I belatedly remembered Vancouver, WA.
    I'll be back to Vancouver, BC next week, maybe we can do coffee or? sometime.
    I look forward to the Fathers Day event.

    Dave -

    Guess I'll (re)join the FCA. was formerly with the SF region; seldom got to their events from Tahoe & travel. More time now.
    Been to the July races with Cobra friends before - very cool.
    You'll get notice of my subscription soon.
