    Decided to join the Dreams and drivers event going on at Niello on Sunday mooring.. Then might head up the hill for some fun. Do you need more exotics for the auto show? Mine was featured last year at the SD auto show (Where I was living) in the Exotics Salon

    Your profile shows that you own a 97. I saw a red 355 labeled as a 95, at the ********** booth. Was that your car? It looked great!

    I have not been to the show in a few years, but I always remember that it used to be held over Veteran's Day weekend, it always rained, and we always got rain soaked running between the exhibits.

    KODE3F1 - Let me know how the D&D cruise goes! I haven't been to one of their meets in a few months, and have been meaning to get to them more often... This year has been very cruel to me, both with the car being in the shop for so long in the early part, and with family business taking up this entire month so far. I just haven't been able to spend time behind the wheel amongst my fellow drivers enough.

    Cfe142 - Yes, that's my car in Building 5, along the left wall as you enter it. They never asked me what year my car was, so they guessed it was a 95, but it is indeed a 97. While I always get excited about seeing and driving my car, and I didn't think I ever took the privilege of ownership for granted, I have to say that the four hours I spent at the show today, helping the ES people man the displays and talking to the people who came by about all the cars, really opened my eyes again. I think I forgot how special our cars are to the general public, how infrequently they see them, and how much they're desired and admired. It definitely reignited my pride in it, and I can't wait to take the wife for a drive next weekend with it. Were you there this morning/early afternoon? I was there from 10am to 2pm. Would have liked to talk to you, if you were!

    I was there Friday morning (oh, the joys of retirement). I looked up your car info, in case you were there.

    Disclaimer: I would like to take this opportunity to inform any sicko 355 fans that the engine was not visible, and there was no way to determine if this car was indeed a '95 model.

    The lines for test drives were short, but I was not compelled to drive anything. The EuSu exhibit was pretty quiet. There were just two dudes at the table, when I went through.

    CNC had half a dozen cars up here. That is a pretty serious commitment!

    Not much on the exotic front.

    I sat in the '15 Vette. It's a beauty, it almost looks like an F car. The dash was a bit on the plastic side. For the money... I don't understand why they got rid of the round tail lights, yet they have four enormous, round, bugle exhaust tips. With all of the angular lines on the car, the exhaust shape should mimic the tail light, or the rear of the car, or have some kind of four sided angular shape. Since they offer a factory performance exhaust, I think its looks should compliment the cars design.

    That is just my $12.00 worth (plus $10.00 parking).

    I'm sorry I missed you,

    Greg

    Absolutely! Let's go out this weekend! We can end at the winery again, and I'd be happy to put together a route for us all! I've gotten to know some of the local Lotus guys (again!), and I'll be inviting them to join us. They're all very fun to drive with!

    Let's meet at the usual spot - Peet's on White Rock and Latrobe, at 7:30 with an 8am SHARP departure! We'll have lunch around 11:30 in the Plymouth area, and you'll have the whole afternoon after that to yourselves, to enjoy as you wish!

    See you then!

    It was my request for a drive, and I forgot about it!! Work has been crazy for me, and my long term girlfriend and I just separated, so needless to say my head is elsewhere. My apologies

    I hope you enjoyed yourself and I Look forward to meeting everyone on the next one.

    Well due to lack of interest, we can do it a different time. I am serious about hosting a start point for a future drive however, Orrie keep me in mind.
