    Hi Brad,

    The pics you posted were actually from the Cavalino Classic at the Breakers. The first picture of the F-40 with its hood and engine cover raised belongs to a friend. The Palm Beach SuperCar Weekend is a separate event, held on the same weekend. I'll be downtown PB around noon on Saturday for this.

    If you really want to enjoy these cars, get over to Moroso today and tomorrow, where guys with more dollars than sense are turning art into roadrash. Friday is the best day to attend.

    Also it's a little late for tickets, but tonight is the Cavalino "La Bella Machina" at Jet Aviation on PBIA.

    Then your friend must have gotten them from me because I have all the originals on my hard drive.

    You misunderstood my reference. I said... "the Ferrari F-40 in your picture belongs to a friend. His name is Gerry. It's a 1991 with 3500 original miles.

    My brother will be down for this again this weekend... last year's poster, with our friend Jim's car (Ferrari P 4/5) has my other brother in the background on his Aprilia Tuono coming across the Throgs Neck Bridge enroute to the Americana Manhasset. That was a fun run from Jim's place out to LI, G on his bike, J in his 360, and myself in the Sky Red Line.

    I wish I could be there for the festivities, but work keeps me up in the frozen north... while my brother gets to play with the owner of Storchavelli this weekend. Lucky S.O.B.!

    Carl, may I plug eCirkit.com? I've no stake in that site, but they're mostly good friends...

    Hey Brad!

    I was at La Balla Machine last night. Sorry I missed you. The Scuderia looked better in person, but mere mortals dare not ask how much!

    Turning to the tarmac, I was mostly impressed by the sportlight plane inside the hangar equipped for a handicapped pilot. About a dozen of these planes are being built for flight training centers around the country to give wings to people on wheels.

    I was excited to see the new Eclipse 500 VLJ on display. First time I've seen one in person. Definately the best bang-for-the-buck in the kerosene burning class. Not sure about the side mounted controls. Guess I'm old-fashioned.

    Going to Moroso today to watch hangar queens get treated like rental cars! Will be at the Yacht Hop tonight. See you there...
