    Hey guys im new here, I just met up with abarre at best buy and he informed me of a couple of people around town that are owners. Im hoping to own one someday, but until then I'll try to at least meet some people and take a look at some great cars. With any luck get a ride or two ha ha (maybe a test drive if the dreams come true) Oh and by the way I am an automotive detailer so if anyone is looking for great detail work please let me know as well.

    Thanks,

    Jon Overton

    I don't live there anymore, but still have property there. Both Ferraris are kept in east TN.

    If you need a mechanic, drop me a line.

    I know a guy that has a 2003 Maser Coupe in Knoxville. He is constantly busy so I don't think he would be up for much. Anyways, obviously not too much Italian there in K-town. A few Panteras here and there but that is about it. Give it a few years and my brother who is a Chiropractor in Maryville might have one. He is a Ferrari fanatic much like myself. What kind of cars do you sell if you don't mind me asking?

    IRRC, there are about 20 Ferraris in the Knoxville area. They are there, they just don't come out much.

    Actually my question is more of the location in east tn. I am not interested if they are in a warehouse but since you are kind of rude and smartass I wouldn't want to meet you anyway nor give you the privilage to see my cars. I just thought you might live close to where I live.

    The smart ass comment was more of a defense mechanism. I don't want to exactly advertise where the cars are for privacy issues...

    Wasn't meaning to be rude.

    But to answer your question, the cars are near Knoxville.

    Mine's a pretty 308 GTS in South Knoxville, red/tan, great carb sound. I take it out every weekend at least (drove it to work in Sevierville on Monday as the weather was beautiful). Let me know when you're out and I'll meet you out somewhere. Oh, who am I kidding; I'm always ridiculously busy what with the fam and all...PM me...it's worth a shot!

    I'm in the area (Norris Lake) also with a black/black 308GTS. I (or really my wife) organized a tifosi dinner about in August '03 at Knoxville's downtown train station. Attached is a pic. MikeC, that eye doc has some really, really, cool cars...

    Sounds like a good idea. We've done two dinners in the past couple of years, let's do a ride/drive or some such. Maybe we could make it a Saturday morning and all meet at "The Cove" in Farragut or somewhere else?

    I'm in Kingston... 1988.5 Black Testarossa.

    My problem is my wife and I have taken up sport bikes. We've been spending a lot of time up at Deal's Gap and on the Cherohala Skyway riding our bikes (we're getting ready to leave now). I ride an '05 Suzuki Hayabusa and she rides an '04 Honda VFR800i Interceptor. The busa is just a bit faster than the TR... hehehehehehe. I may put the TR up for sale as it is just collecting dust in the garage.

    My TR is a driver with ~32K miles. It is black with black interior. It has had all the major servicing done, to the tune of >$20K invested (belts, clutch, brakes, seals, a/c, 512TR water pump, seat belt recall finished). It has a Tubi with no cats. I'd take $45K which is half what I have in it. I have service records and most if not all history. Also have service manuals, etc. While pictures are nice, you should pay me a visit to take a look.

    Here is a link to a picture from last falls PCA concour in old town:

    pm me if interested.
