    So sad there is no Strong Ferrari presence in Louisiana. Porsche has us beat. Is there a secret community or something?

    Well, they ARE "around"...there's many in NO, and as you see by my thread in here IF I get to Denham Springs that will make two in Baton Rouge..

    A new shop is nearly complete in Houma, there will be an announcement!

    That’s a true statement, a lot more Porsches on the road in Baton Rouge but you’ll see a few F cars around. I’m now in Gonzales and I see a black 430 spider all the time but I have no idea who he is.... we should have more get togethers here. As BigTex alludes too, New Orleans and probably the Northshore (Mandeville/Covington) have a tighter and larger group.

    Someone recently posted a pic of a really nice Ferrari colleection in Houma, who knew? I would love to see that. In my limited ownership, Ferraris seem to come out when Vinnie’s Exotics (Baton Rouge) hosts a get together/drive.

    I’m game and I know my bud with his Testarossa would too. VAF84 is here temporarily and would like to meet up. Where are you Marc?

    I’m a doctor and considered a job in Houma. Years ago when I interviewed there I seem to recall hearing of one of the cardiologists was a big car buff.

    I have some connections there. Lemme see what I can find out. Haste be the same person

    I’m right down the road in MS. Tomorrow they come to pick up my GT3 RS, and in a couple weeks I’ll have my car here. You know there is a great track NOLA MOTORSPORTS... on occasion they have Cars and Coffee there, also, every 3rd Saturday there is a Cars and Coffee at the Lakefront in NOLA.

    Until my prancing horse arrives, I’ll be out there with the 997.1 GT3RS... orange.

    Congrats on the new car Marc, can’t wait to see pics!

    The times I’ve been in the area (around BR), I haven’t run into many sports cars in general. If it weren’t for Steven I wouldn’t have even known about Vinnie’s and the associated car meets. In my time here I’ve run into one exotic, it was a gray McLaren near the Whole Foods early in the morning. Our cars stand out quite a bit around here, and the city has a fairly small pop., I wonder if that’s why they tend to stay under the radar?

    A few years back there was (I think) a big time lawyer in NOLA selling his beautiful red 458 (around 2018). Never met him or spoke to him, only what I picked up from his sales thread, but I wonder if he’s still active around here. Looked like he had some kind of lounge in his garage from the pics he put up, so I assume he’s a pretty big car enthusiast.

    Anyway, I’m subscribed to the thread in case we’re able to coordinate a get together. I’ll be around until about June, then not sure where I’ll be; maybe Austin for the summer. However, I’ll be back in the late third or fourth quarter of the year.

    The NOLA Porsche guys are cool enough that they still welcome you even if you bring a non-Porsche to their events. I kept one Porsche for that community alone. Cool crew.
