    Rick and Jerry...et al,

    I was driving up Rodeo Dr. and LO and behold....the caravan went by..... F40, TT, Z06, 328, 328 and a couple of (backmarker) TR's. Then after a few miunutes.....AGAIN rounding BH Lambo and back onto Wilshire on the way to Black on Black. I didn't put 2 and two together (due to the distance from OC)until I saw the TY Enzo 328 and Augustine told me whos ' plate that is (while I was calling to report the spot to he, Carbon and Bruce).

    All your cars looked and sounded fantastic! The last blast down LaCienega was cool too!

    Good timing for me :D

    Well I never honked at you but yes, that was me. I was on the phone with Augustine at the time, letting him hear you guys!

    EDIT: I did honk on Wilshire but not at you guys, at least I thought. Were you on Wilshire or turning from the side of LBH?

    We posted this last week. http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11608
    We left Newport around 8:15 and drove up to Malibu then up to the Coffee House. Thank goodness Steve and Paul knew their way around up there because I get lost in my own backyard :) The turnout up there was pretty good. It was fun driving back down to Malibu where it was cooler.
    Did any of you guys see the crashed bike parked by the side of hill?
    We wanted to hit all the exotic car dealers in BH but they are all closed on Sunday. I guess they figure if you are going to spend $250K on a car you can do it during the week! :) Black on Black was doing some picture taking of their cars so we did get to check out an F50 an Enzo, more 550s then I have ever seen in one spot and 2 512Ms.
    After being up until 2am watching the F1 race the night before I think we were all pretty beat. Great day, thanks everyone.
    Kal, let me know how the video turns out.

    That is too funny Darth! We drove about 5 hours that day & stood in the sun for the rest of the day - I am soooo tired now! Was a ton of fun though & got to meet a few new F-chatters that are as nice as the ones I have already meet. God bless the internet! :)

    Can't wait to see Kal's video - That will be incredible! The camera angles scared me & my wife! We kept thinking we were going to take a camera throught the windshield, lol.

    Hey great drive guys! Lots of fun! THe guy riding shot gun with me is a good friend of mine who is the creater of the redline series of videos you find on Racingflix.com. He is so much into the whole video thing now that he bought a production quality camera (not what we were sticking out the windows at 120mph) and a state of the art Mac with FInalcut pro which is the industry standard for digital video editing. He is going to be putting together a movie this summer about performance cars in general. However I will talk to him to get us some highlight clips from the drive I know he got some fantastic camera angles. He was switching lenses in the car as fast as he could to get the different shots. I know i was nervous I kept saying "Don't take any paint off the car!"
