    Byron and I have been discussing having a very "mini" event for a couple months, and I'm proposing (tentatively pending weather, Byron coming, people'fp availability) Saturday January 10th, time TBD (maybe after Crystal Cove?).

    We'll screen "Ferrari of the Art" which is a video of the Matsuda Collection in HDTV. It's about 25 minutes long, professionally shot, an amazing collection of cars (shot around 1995). I have a theater that will comfortably hold 8-10 people, and 10-15 people not so comfortably. Viewing will be on a 120" projection screen. Teaser screenshots below. If there is further interest, we can screen a movie or other car related films/videos afterwards.

    I'll supply the place, the theater, video, and drinks.

    One of the prerequisites is you have to come over in your Ferrari. Armen can park his Enzo in my garage and it'll never be let out again :D

    If interested in attending (please respond if you are highly likely to attend, not 20%), post here or email me at info@jet-x.com

    Oh, those without Ferrari's (Jordan...), we'll make room for you too. Those with Ferrari's, I know who you are ;)

    I've got a GT4, so I guess I'll also have to park somewhere else :)

    Sounds really cool, I should be able to make it. Will confirm later in the week.

    Guys,
    This will be lots of fun - Brian has very graciously opened up his house to some of us to watch this great video. Armen will be bringing his Enzo that morning to CC... I think getting together to watch the Matsuda collection will be a wonderful way to cap off the day! I'll bring a few magazines I picked up in Japan that day with some nice black and whites of Enzo Ferrari.

    C'mon fellow OC F-Chatters...let's bring the F-Cars and really give Brian's neighbors a real treat! :)

    Thanks again for doing this, Brian - it's very generous of you!

    Byron

    150shot, show up in the NSX...you're in...I want my neighbors to freak at the informal "car show" that happens outside.

    Sounds great Rick. It's starting to sound like maybe after Crystal Cove (and after breakfast?) that we'll gather. I'm in Laguna Hills as an FYI, off La Paz and Moulton.

    If you have room for a 308... I'll be there! Can I bring my Co-Pilot... or is this an 18 and over event?

    Either way, I need to take my baby out.... been so busy working this weekend that I didn't have a chance to...
    REV HER ENGINE!! Yes... I mean the Ferrari!! ;)

    Okay, with this much interest, the event is *DEFINITELY* on.

    Also, in checking the weather through the weekend, Saturday is expected to be sunny, clear skys, and a high of 72. Should make for a good mini-event (or big event if you go to Crystal Cove as well).

    Now I'll start trying to lock down the time, and am thinking between 10am - 11am, this way doesn't cut too much into peoples Saturdays. We can do it earlier as well if we want to caravan from Crystal Cove as well.

    Brian,
    Here's an idea... from Crystal Cove, maybe we can pick a spot near your house for breakfast... and for those that don't go to CC but will be going to your house - if they want to meet everyone for breakfast, that way they can...

    How's that sound?

    Sounds great! Only slight issue would be any 'crowds' that want to have breakfast on a Saturday. There's an 'Original Pancake House' very close by, but parking tends to be a bit of a struggle and tends to be very crowded. I'm racking my brain (Jordan, feel free to jump in) on what's fairly close by for breakfast that might be appealing to people.

    I'll start racking my brain tonight...

    I left a message with Pancake House to see if they could accommodate 10-20 of us (not sure they take reservations, but we'll see). Told them we'd be there 9:00-9:30am.

    There is always just that cafe right at Crystal Cove. They have pretty good food and parking wouldn't be a problem :)

    Great Idea Jordan- no worries for parking/caravaning two times and maybe we could just line up the cars right next to the cafe if stores start opening..its up to Byron and Jet-x for this one..
