    Blue F355 Spyder...Is that the same Blue Spyder that I was parked next to at the Italian gar gathering in Itasca? I don't see many in blue so I thought I would inquire..



    Thanks.

    I was at LFSC the other day... they had 4 F40s. Lee said there was a recall on the F40s and F50s, said there should be an influx of the F50s this week and next week.
    KEEP THOSE EYES PEELED!

    Red 355B and beautiful blue 355 Spyder. Owners of both very nice. Red 355 guy very friendly but lookin like a former Chicago Bear. 355 gal very sweet and cute but would make most guy's understanding equal to a 4 year old's with the Tonka truck...

    Had fun with Carla and Vince, very nice people and in Vince's case as nice in person as he is over the phone. Andreas, get these people involved and you will be very happy and the Chi-town FOC would have some sweet, modern and new entrants... oh yeah and two neat cars.

    PS: Darolls was missed. I hope you feel better and I will be calling soon.

    Likewise..
    It was great to meet you and your wife to be. It was also great to sit and talk Ferrari, Benz and Bulgaria!
    Carla's blue 355 was a sight to see as well. She is a very excited owner which is great to see. Skip was missed but wants to get together on a Sat. and I told him I would try to put it together.
    We need to get some more FCA/FOC guys out with us..

    Thanks!
    Vince

    P.S. Oh I almost forgot...SPOTTED a bad *** red 575 in front of Olivetti's...Love those sport seats!

    Chase it down!

    I'd love to have a good picture of a Ferrari with it in the calendar. Just for kicks.

    I thought about whipping out the camera, but it was going the other way. Wasn't driving the Ferrari though. Must be around here this weekend I'm thinking. Quite a sight to see moseying down I-94. Why doesn't someone make a replica of that? Now that'd be something....

    David and Vince,

    Seems like you scared Carla off after your meeting the other night. She hasn't posted here since!

    Carla, if you are listening, these louts are not representative of all of us; especially me!

    If they offended you in any way, that has caused you to avoid our forum, please let me know.

    That be said, I will deal with them accordingly!

    The Emperor

    Frank - are those old pix or did you hunt it down?

    http://www.kraftfoods.com/om/Wienermobile_main.htm

    I'm thinking that if you look around the Kraft headquarters this weekend (I think they're in Oak Brook or Elmhurst or the like) I bet you'd find it...

    Yes, they would work. However Frank, I think your Ferrari should star in next year's calendar with a more classy background. I'm thinking Italian villa "La Terrace" or maybe Calatrava's art museum.
    :)

    But I think we never had Dan's car and if he could hunt the Wienermobile that would be a cool pic too.

    Maybe I should start a separate Calendar thread...

    No,those are the same old pix that I have had now. I also have some of My Son and I and the 308 parked in front of it by the Hotel where the Crew always stay.

    The last 3 Years,that I have known,it has parked at a Hotel right here in Oakbrook Terrace,literally,a half mile or so West of my House. I have talked to the Drivers on each time,and they said that they are always staying there when they come to Town. I even got to go IN the Wienermobile,and was given a few 'Wiener Whistles'....:) Frankie and I drove by there Yesterday.and it wasn't there....yet....:) But,normally we haven't seen it around here in this area until late August/Early Sept. Like around the time that they have that Hooters Car Show in Downers Grove on Butterfield Rd.

    So,when I find out that it's here,I will definitely post it. And,I will go over there and talk to them,give them my # and let them know that we'd like to get some more photo's. They usually drive it around all day,and then park it for the night by 6:00 or 7:00 PM. They are really nice,very obliging Folks.

    I don't think Im that boring or rude... so Im sure she's just busy. I have been busy with the new home and sales calls. I mowed a lawn for the first time since since the 1980s (before I get flak give this apartment vet a break.) So if you are an Emperor, can I be a knight? I just completed a great task, fighting my way through the thickest of weeds and hornets' nests just to give you and Katie a beautiful lawn to view upon your visits...

    I haven't talked to Vince since meeting him and I need to make the effort. As leader of the "young crowd" he is fun to talk to and a very nice man. But I think his little 2 year old stud is taking up his time. That and fighting off the Des Plaines teeny boppers who don't know he's married...

    Spotted a red 360 Spyder in Barrington near Motorwerks last week. Same red 512TR near Fox River Grove. He didn't wave back to Dad and I in the 575, oh well.

    RocketBoy

    PS: So Skip wants to be part of the young crowd? His claim for entry will be his posts about other people's pants! Its good to be king/Emperor.

    I'm still here guys...
    Spotted...360 spyder in Park Ridge, again on East River Rd.

    Someone tell Skip that Rocketboy and I did not scare anyone at least I don't think so? I'm sure Carla will turn up again soon.
    Ran into plenty of young punks in Trans Am's and the like yesterday. I was a marked man it seemed. No respect...Most of the people in other types of sports cars are kool to me but there is always someone that is trying to make a name for themselves..Ahhhh youth...
