    So here i am, in my 17th month of FerrariChat membership, 10,000 posts later... i've flown across the country, down south, i've driven a Mondial, a 355 Spider, a 328 GTS and a Testarossa... i've ridden in a 308 GTS, a 328GTS, a 348 Spider, a few 355 Berlinettas & Spiders, a 360, Roland Linder's F40 LM, an Enzo & serial number 2819, "La Camionette"- The Bread Van... i've also ridden in a Countach and a Monterey Edition Diablo SV... i drove a member's NSX and another member's Z3; add a brand new Chrysler Crossfire to that list, as well... i've spent hours on the phone with dozens of members; i have a whole pile of envelopes and boxes at home, that once housed packages from various members from around the country... i have letters hanging on my walls, along with pictures; i have business cards, magazines, pamphlets, toys, brochures, press kits, stickers, posters and other stuff; all because of FerrariChat...

    i have memories that will last a lifetime...

    Most of all - the most important thing to me, though, is the friends... i've made so many good friends here; i've met so many wonderful people here... Who better but me to contest that this is not "just a website"...? Thank you, FerrariChat...

    i love this place; i love the things i've learned, the places i've gone, the opportunities i've had; i relish in the friendships i've made, the bonds that have grown... Especially with one member, in particular: Bruce Wellington... Bruce and his family have treated me like one of their own... Everyone looks out for everyone else, here... It's really a wonderful place... Miraculously, i found a thread of genuine, good-natured reality amidst the infinite strands of the internet... Thank you, FerrariChat. :)

    Ive been on the website for a little over a year and have had the chance to ride in, and drive various Ferraris. However, one of the best memories for me was getting a chance to meet you! You Rock!

    Paul, Gus, Tom, John, Pat - thank you.

    Mark, LOL, did i win a prize...? Will they send me a t-shirt...?

    Rob, LOL, don't worry, my motivation level remains as it is (high:D)... 20,000 isn't really Double F1 World Champion, is it...? How come you changed things with the new software, too...? This is my SECOND time being F1 World Champion... Is there a new level at 15,000...? Campione Del Mondo or something like that...?

    Au contraire, Jordan, my friend... 'Tis you, who rocks... :)

    Tyler, J. Grande, thank you... i can hear the music... :D

    Roland, i was twice as happy to BE a passenger...! i look forward to seeing you again, soon...

    EVartanian, Marq, thank you...

    Gilles, Redhead, have one FOR me, while you're at it, ok...? :)

    Tom B, you're the man...! Thank YOU...!

    Congrats dude! You were the first Fchatter I hung out with and what an adventure we had. It was an awesome four days down in New Olreans and I look forward to next year. You know you got a ride again if you need one. If I ever make it up that way I'll be sure to get up with you. Till then take it easy.
