    Never mess with a lady who actually has the ability to put a stiletto heel through your head at over 200mph is she desires.

    Skip, with all due respect, the sarcasm is belittling. Many people enjoy these events and the chance to meet with like-minded people; if you find them dull, that's perfectly ok. Carla, I'd be there if I was going to be in town. If nothing else, it would have given me a destination for a drive and a chance to talk to some of you after a long, awful winter.

    Carla, over the years I've worked on many events and drives with the FCA, RROC, FOC and other clubs. It's just been the past few years that I've laid low due to my failing vision and other physical ailments.

    There's no reason to sling mud because of my viewpoint, and I respect the viewpoint of those who enjoy going to the car shows (I used to enjoy them too, until it became a weekly thing and you usually saw the same cars week after week). The social aspect of going to the shows is what I liked most. I still have friends that attend as many shows as they can and I don't 'knock' them for it. I do try to attend shows that are for a cause though, like the VA Hospital show and other charitable events.

    And to the person who claims to know so much about me (you know whom you are) and the cars that I own and have owned, you know nothing! I haven't seen or spoken to you in probably 10 years, maybe more, and that's fine with me. You're still in a snit because of the joint event you were having with the FOC that you botched! Ever since, you've tried to belittle and disgrace those who spoke out against your handling of the matter. GROW UP AND GET OVER IT!!!!

    And Carla, I prefer to called an Old Fart instead of an Old Coot, though both terms are fitting. :)

    Thanks Gary, my meaning is often misinterpreted. It's probably due to fact the I'm usually not very tactful in the wording that I use, as I usually just blurt things off of the top of my head and don't consider how the verbiage I use will be construed.

    Seriously, to those I may have offended in my original post, I do apologize. Now, back to our original programming............

    To me any nice car is s Super Car, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am planning to be there with my 328 and my 2-yr. old daughter in the car seat affixed to the passenger seat. My question is where do I place the stroller as I drive to The Glen? I'll figure it out, for having my daughter participate and enjoy beautiful automobiles is something I have been looking forward to for a while. Looking forward to seeing everyone at The Glen.

    We are posting in the PRESENT. It's about what we are trying to organize now that matters.


    FYI: It wasn't a botched party. It was a rain date reschedule!!!! The attendance was outstanding, minus just a few FOC members. It's YOU that should GET OVER IT!!!

    Your a bitter, cranky person that spoils it for everyone by hijacking this thread with your worthless opinions.

    Now back to SUPERCAR SATURDAY!

    Perhaps dipping him in some Zaino leather conditioner would be better, killing two birds with one stone as it were.

    the lm002 may be sold:)

    I am Mr Mom and Baseball Dad this weekend with games starting at 1:00. Doubt I will be able to have any fun but my employees are always up for a lunch run or drive.(Yes, my Lambo is out of jail)

    The board of directors of Supercar Saturdays has spent quite a bit of time and money on this event. We are putting this on for the community, not for our own benefit. Negative comments are not necessary nor welcome.

    PS: I had several GTIs over the years and they could have all beaten my 308. Anybody who thinks Ferraris are solely about 0-60 is missing the point.

    I would suggest if any one has any concerns to use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page. Voice your opinions to the head moderator. Robert Lay?

    Let me make it even easier.

    Anyone who has any concerns can contact me at anytime by PM.

    Personal attacks are not acceptable in here. Andreas cut you all a break by not issuing any temp bans for them.

    Keep the discussion on topic, and off each others' cases, ok?

    Grazie,

    DM

    I believe it was Andreas that originally hijacked this thread, but whatever.

    As far as your FYI, I believe the plans were altered without the knowledge of all original parties involved. Talk to AF about it as I wasn't involved in the original plans.

    As far as "GET OVER IT", I think you've pointed that statement to the wrong person; and I don't mean it should be addressed to you.
