    Guys,

    I will be in town form the 25th til the 2nd, staying with Amir. He and I were thinking of hosting a drive or at least a meet. He's in the River Oaks area of town. I've only been to houston a few times, so I don't know what (if any) driving routes are available, but at the least we could BBQ or something.

    I know Dale is interested, as he and I were planning on meeting anyways. Who else is up?

    i'll be back in houston the afternoon of the 28th, so anything after that works for me.

    you have to drive a bit to hit the good roads but as long as there isn't much traffic, 2 hours is enough time to get out, go for a good drive, and get back.

    I'll try and get ahold of Grady Owens (local FCA President) and Luigi tomorrow to see what everyone has planned.

    Hey, you laid back Austin types, wanna meet somewhere inbetween?

    Guys, if this is not only post 1990-95 cars I'll join. But usually I know that Luigi like to test his car... so
    In any case, after rusting for over a month (baby is here!) the 308 needs exercise!.. Jan 2 seems good to me. Let me know!

    Lol Joe, thanks for the suggestion. I make it a habit to go to Fogo at least once a week, and Carrabas once a week as well. I should get my cholestoral checked, too much red meat these days.

    But Fogo is absolutely awesome!! All you eat high quality Filet, HOW can you beat that?!?

    Guys, I'm open to whatever dates there work. Seems like 28th, 29th or 30th would be a good day? Not sure who's working when?

    I'm just coming along to instigate the trouble! :D

    Hey guys, I am new to this. Just joined yesterday. If you guys are gonna get together and drive in H town, I would love to come. My parents live their and I am bringing my 355 spider down from Dallas for teh weekend. I bought it about a month ago and just wanna get together with some other Ferrarists. I whole heartedly agree with the Fog De Chao recommendation. My wife is Brazillian and we both love it. Take care.

    Dale: any update from the local chapter? I'm thinking the 29th should be good? Or the 30th, either way. Meet at Amir's house first and go from there to wherever we go? (Austin?).

    Well, Luigi, the devil in a blue dress, is planning a run on 12/26. You know, the ladies can shop till they drop and the guys can...

    I haven't talked to Grady Owens yet. He's the president of the local chapter. But we'll do something even if it is wrong while you're here, even if it is wrong, and it most likely will be. I'll report more later.

    Drive to Austin? Are you kidding me??

    That's over 350 miles there and back, and at least one ticket is inevitable......no way I'm doing that ;)

    All, the only thing planned so far is the run below, which is on 12/26

    http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3919

    I plan on going to this run. However, if you want to put together an ad hoc run for a different date, I'm game. So why don't we try and pin down a date. I can then come up with some suggestions as to where to go.

    Dale

    ps I have been told that very early Sunday morning is a great time to run sports cars over the Texas highways and byways. I forget why. :)

    2AM Sunday morning is NOT a good time! LOL

    I'm really careful driving at that time. Maybe after the sun comes up.

    Geeze Louise Speedy, I'm talking day break here. No good Republican is up at 2:00 am Sunday morning! No way, dat's the Democrat hour!

    Can you join us for a run?

    It all looks good. I doubt I will attend the Lambo fun run, but Sunday sounds interesting.

    --Dan

    PS: Dale: email me your mobile number again. Regardless, I'd like to meet up for a drink or two.

    Dan, I left a message on your cell. Call when ever. For everybody else, as far as a drive is concerned tomorrow, I'm game, but I don't have anything planned. Even though it is kinda late, pls let me know by posting or pm if you want to do something tomorrow.
