    Thanks you for the PM Rob. Being a member since '01 when I bought my 355, then 550, Maserati then 430. Met a lot of great guys here, but decided to take an inactive role b/c one specific NYTS moderator was being abusive and made this place not as appealing to visit.

    Let's hope things have changed. But I'm still here.

    Hi Bruce, Whart, CLyde, Eric (and a few others 'ole timers)!

    The more things change, the more things stay the same. Good to see some of these names. I am currently looking for an old car, to suit my driving style. Some of the prices of vintage Ferraris are truly nutty these days. And, I'm pretty selective. I'll keep you in the loop. IN the meantime, hope to see you here.

    I'm here. Of course I'm not all that welcome here by some. :D

    http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=166742

    But, I'm here none the less. Have not seen many of you guys in 2-3 years. Pchop, it was at West Chester I think, many of you guys I met at BRUCE'S HOUSE.

    A couple even wandered to Reading for the Concours.

    Sure would be cool to get the old heads back into the swing of things her in the NYTS section. Some of these young-uns couls use our input.

    BRUUUUCCCCEEEEE!!!!!! WHERE YOU AT?????

    And AUGUSTINE. We haven't had him check in yet, have we?

    You are correct! Knowing my luck, it will probably arrive in the middle of winter.

    To set the record straight, Ferretti did pay!

    Good to hear from you.

    Hey Rob, don't check in as often as I would like, but I still do have my '77 308GTB USA model. I recently posted pertaining to front end suspension sag I have been experiencing with the car....I joined back in Feb 2001 I believe.....this site has saved me a LOT of money, as the members who post have "been there, done that", and I utilize the advice given to work on my car myself....
    Great idea to get in touch with the old gang.....

    Hi to all the bros that welcomed me with open arms when I showed up first in 04 especially Eric, Greg, John (pchop), Clyde, Dwight (Hutch), Keith, Michael (green F355) and Ed P from L.I. and of course SamG and many others. I post from time to time. Laid low with five surgeries in the past 2-years but very well now and enjoying the 360S. Will be at every run that does not conflct with out of towm travel from here on out. Let''s get the old crew out.

    Where have all the Ferraris gone to!!!! Notice less than 5% participation of F-Cars at all recent events. What's up with that. Obviously a lot of defections to Lambos but there still must be plenty of F-cars available. This is after all Ferrari-Chat.com.

    By the say thinking seriously of joining the new Lime Rock Club..had a long chat with Skip Barber when he made his pitch at Miller's last month. na imporant purpose if not the main purpose of LRC is to save the track from going the way of Bridgehampton. He is opening up a lot of promo track days well into December just for those interested in considering joining LRC. I will be there on 12/11.

    I am always here when you need for a run weather forecast. I check in here just about every day.

    good to hear from you vinny.

    btw, your forecast talent is useless on the west coast...it's been sunny since March (except for maybe 3 days) and will continue to be sunny for the next few month :D

    Hey Vinny!!! Great to hear from ya!! Hope that all is well up in New Canaan!! I moved south, but will be back in CT sometime around late December or early January. Maybe there could be a NYTS gathering around that time??? Anybody else up for a group party/gathering??? That'd definitely be :cool: !!!

    OK, I don't log on much anymore, but no one remembered me! I was at that October 11 Run Out East with Ed, Sam, Keith, Barney, Andy, Dave W, Pchop and Ferretti and a bunch of others I might add, and here's proof:

    Fchat was how Sam set it up, so I'm sure I was one here before then - wow that was a long time ago!

    Always good to hear from you Vinny and of course the rest of the crew as well.

    Life has gotten more hectic and unfortunately this site has become less of "community" over the past year...I look forward to getting together and seeing the "good ole users" anytime and I'm glad to hear that all is well.

    Hope to see you soon...

    I'm getting older as we speak.
    I'm on this board since 2001. I did not know how to change my profile from rijk400GT to rijk365gtb4, so I made a new one in Jan 2002.

    The users make the community, there are plenty of good communities on FerrariChat, I have little control over what each community lets itself become. For everyone that doesn't like what it is now, simply explained by you let it happen and didn't care enough to fight back more.

    BTW 993 guy, not personal to you, just the general "old timers" complaining, but no care or action. :)
