    Why is Northern California area posting so anemic? If you look at the number of users compared to other areas, are use of this forum should be(statistically) much much higher. Just wondering if its distance, disinterest or ????

    I think it's caused by too much wine consumption.

    YOu very funny man, very funny. But I forgive you just because I like your new avatar so much. Cheaper than a Ferrari???

    Glassman, I am actually still using straigt motor oil, you might try that, and stay away from the bubbly for sure, it will fry your cats.

    LA has Byron settting up drives. For some reason, we haven't been able to get something like that going up here. What some of us do is the carts, but regular, scheduled drives don't seem to happen. Most of us have pretty rigorous jobs, and it makes it tough. Seems the LA bunch has more free time, for whatever reason.

    John:

    Next month we need to do a plane trip. Middle of month? Going to Brno for the motogp 8/20 -28, so what's your schedule like? Red????

    Those guys have so much $$$ to burn, they don't need to work! ;)

    Plus it seems everyone is a 20min drive to everyone in LA.

    Art, how about after Labor Day. Everything calms down a bit, the weather is more predictable and very nice. Maybe mid Sept?

    Brno = Czech Republic MotoGP race 8/28/05. A friend of mine is loaning me his plane, and I get to fly it over there. Need to deliver it to Spain, then to see the races, and come home. Should be a lot of fun. Took my plane to the Isle of Man for the TT races in 99, was a great trip.

    Mid Sept makes good sense John.

    Is there a place where the Bay Area ferrari crew can regularly meet at?

    In SoCal, they always get together at Crystal Cove on Saturday mornings.
    We should have our own such gathering here on the peninsula. Agree?

    Mountain and coastal drives can be organized easily that way too if the NoCal car enthusiasts have a regular place to meet.

    God knows I have tried to get a Yosemite or Gold country drive on the books and nobdy can make up their mind on a date to attend. The effort goes right down the toilet!

    Here's what I propose for the Nor Cal guys. This is for riverflyer, but you have to bring that beautiful Titanium coupe!

    I'll hold a function at my store on a Sunday maybe in late Sept or early Oct when it cools down a bit for all the NorCal owners.

    It will be my treat-hot dogs, turkey burgers (has to be healthy), sodas, etc.
    Plenty on parking in front of the building for all the beautiful F-cars.

    And you can all learn about high end audio and home theater at the same time!

    I'll make sure Brian Crall comes as his shop is less than 2 miles away!

    That should wake up everyone.

    Out of staters are definitely welcomed.

    Now how's that sound?

    I'll even try to get Ken Behring from the Blackhawk Auto Museum to bring over one of his personal beauties!

    Post some dates now, so we can get some sort of agreement on the Calendar. Great idea. John: you guys can stay with us, if you'd like.
