    Saturday is my birthday (just think, another year older, and none the wiser). Latest weather forecast is a partially overcast 85 degrees. What better way to celebrate my birthday than to organize another Ferrari drive. ;)

    I know the WWoC Tech Day is on Sunday, but for those that would like to have some fun driving their cars, join us for our little drive down the Jersey shore this Saturday.

    We're planning to meet up at Lupe's place in Perthamboy, NJ between 8:30 - 9:00am. He is located at 769 Columbus Drive. The plan is to depart around 9:00am for a lovely cruise along the shore to a cute little place we've got earmarked for Brunch. We'll then continue south, where we've pre-selected some terrific roads, with some beautiful vistas of the shore. Lupe promises me the scenery will be "breathtaking." We should be done late morning / early afternoon.

    As usual, we'll take in the views, talk Ferrari, and have a lot of fun. We've already got a bunch of people in. Would love to have as many people join as can make it.

    Let me know.

    PS - Those originating from the City or West of the Island, point that out when you post. I'm sure a bunch of us will be caravan-ing down together to Lupe's place.

    Repeat after me Sam:

    LOL! Age is just a number hehe. Happy Birthday bro. Saturday for me is looking pretty booked BUT I can fit you in during the morning. THAT WOULD BE FUN!!!! Cruise in the morning with you. Queens in the afternoon for a graduation dinner and then party with you that evening with Emil. LOTS OF FUN!!!

    I have not spoken to Lupe but I think you guys can meet at my house. He knows exactly where I live and then we can shoot over 18 to get to the shore. It seems a lot easier. Let me know.

    You would think he'd get it cleaned & pressed, at least.
    Well, if you are going to wear it all rumpled, at least throw something over it. :)


    I have Dad duty this weekend. Sorry I can't make it.

    Happy Birthday!

    Great purchase -- V1's rock!

    Unfortunately, Hubert, the walkie talkies we ordered are still in the mail. However, I've got two from our last run (Emil's and Noah's I think), and will bring those along.

    Let's catch up at my place at 8:00am, and head over to Lupe's together.

    Vik,

    Sounds like you guys are heading right past my area. have a commitment Saturday but if you are right near by I might be able to meet up with you briefly. What is your planned route? I live in Rumson, NJ right on the coast by Sea Bright.

    I need to install some new rotors and pads first. Kind of wore 'em out at Watkins Glen a couple weekends ago. Just got the new stuff yesterday.

    John B, great to hear from you! We're definitely heading into your neck of the woods . In fact, we're having brunch at a place called Maclones (sp?) which is in Sea Bright. Would love to have you join us for brunch, and if you're so inclined, to cruise with us afterwards.

    Why don' you PM me your cell, and also keep mine handy (917.656.2280). If you haven't heard from me by 9:45am, give me a shout and we'll coordinate.

    Look forward to catching up with you.

    Vik.

    nah....i just ordered direct from www.valentineone.com

    people on this ferrarichatboard in the Off Topic Section said that valentines are mainly sold directly, so no major discounts can be obtained for new models.

    I bought my off of the website as well. If you check on eBay, most second-hand units go for about $375 - $380. For another $15, makes sense to get a brand new unit.
