I'll be there for the 14th and 15th only I think. So Concorso Italiano and whatever is going on for Sunday. I have passes for Concorso's Thursday event which is suppose to be semi-private and I'm disappointed I can't make it.

I'm also counting the days ...

Hhhhmmmmm .....

First some "pre-fun" by visiting the Marconi Museum in LA (FX and 456 Venice!!), then lots of days with lots of fun!!! And .... if everything goes as it should .... a ride in an Enzo (thumbs, thumbs, thumbs). Well, we will see what's going to happen ....

By the way, Andrew, we should meet somewhere!!

Oh yes, also interesting for Dirk: I heard that Frits Kroymans is also going to Laguna Seca. He will bring his 250 GTO (yes, number 18 or so, I guess!) and his Ferrari F1 car. Man, this is REALLY looking great

Grtx,

Edvar :green:

Ahhh! I'm just itching with excitement. So it appers there's no way of being just a spectator for the FCA meet. A little bummed, unless I missed something.

Well, I know I'm confirmed for Concorso on Friday. Should be there from 7 until the end.

Saturday, I *should* be going to the historics. I WANT to see those 250 GTOs.

And unfortunately that's about it. So whoever will be at the 2 aforementioned events, I am more than happy to meet in person.

I won't be there, but I just want to let you know, that when you're flying over the US, the little patch of nothing, in the middle of the country, is where I live. Give me a wave, I'll be looking for your plane. :wink:

CI is on Friday the 13th and that is the one you wanna go to. I will be exhibiting my car there and probably make a picnic out of it. The other two events that I am planning to go to are FCA concourse and Challenge/Vintage races. See you guys there...

I believe it is on Tuesday. All those cars at Pebble Beach will be at FCA Concourse... I complained to one of FCA's director regarding their website and the registration information. You can obviously register and go to their event at www.fca2004.com. The event is open and free to Ferrari owners. They do have a lack of clear schedule and outline of all the events on their website.

Cheers,
Matt

Andrew, don't push

What will my shrink say when I'll tell him that I've been several times to Florida, just to see Ferraris, that I'm now going to California and that I have plans to visit Japan, mainly for Ferraris??? :nuts:

Dirk, don't know if Kroymans will be at the AvD, but why not?? Still some days left to ship it to the US

And yes, I'm also sure that we will see each other over there. But I will send you an email with my phone number ...

Rosso, what are you talking about? I believe everybody can go to the FCA meeting. I think you can buy tickets at Laguna Seca and I even think that the concours is free. Anybody who knows for sure????

mchferrari, you're indeed almost in the middle of the country That's just 150 miles northwest from you, in Lebanon, KS ha:
Well, I will look down to see if I can find "nothing" :P

Hmm, well, I looked around and didn't see anything on Laguna Seca's site regarding tickets for the event, unless they can only be bought at the gates. Because I know my dad would be pissed if I am to convince him to go down and we find out we can't get in. I just have to believe they have it open some way, just a problem of getting tickets and convincing dad that it's worth it to go.

No, I'm talking about the FCA meet, not the historics. I know I can get tickets for the Historics. I want to see the FCA meet though.
