Ferrari Life Alberta Chapter

I just wanted to thank Andrew for setting up an Alberta Regional section on Ferrari Life for any events, news and discussions related to F-cars in our region.

I signed up here last month and am looking forward to hearing from other Alberta owners, some of whom I already know and from others that I do not know yet.

Breakfast in Bragg Creek

Sunday morning drive out to Bragg Creek.
5 of the 10 cars were F-Cars....348SS, 355GTB, 360Modena, 430Coupe & 575M and the others were just Lambos, ZR1, Lotus and Porsche.......but we all got along

We took up all of the central parking area in this mall, but no one seemed to mine.

Not very often I would ever see that, so had to take the shot.

Enzo Mishap on Video

I really feel for Zahir. I am glad no one was hurt, but goes to show how things can go bad in a spilt second.

Unfortunately I missed FBI, but that was my fault (wife didn't want to do "Car stuff"). I did want to pass on that you guys in Alberta have a stunning place to live. The scenery is simply amazing in Banff.


Hope to get back up there and if any of you guys make it to DC drop me a line!

Hi Matt,
Pleasure talking to you. Yes I'm sorry that we didn't get the chance to meet up as well.
Glad you enjoyed are Province. It's a special place and a fun backyard to drive thru
Next time stay longer!

Here's a couple of pics of your first Ferrari. It's alive and well. And having a blast up here.

Ciao
