welcome to you too claude. i was banned as i called out a troll. seemed unpopular w/ the mods.

i have a long ferrari history. my father owned the last tr (0758) and an important 250mm (0352). i grew up in ct with luigi chinetti as a neighbor...i was a fixture in his garage whenever i saw the doors open i am a long time multiple ferrari owner. never caused any problems over there and first joined the site 11 yrs ago.

still they had no issue banning me in favor of protecting some blowhard. goo to see some great folks here!!!!

Pete

Welcome!

Being banned over there and moving here is a common thing - ask me how I and many others here know

Enjoy the place!

Pete - very comfortable here and you will continue to see a lot of familiar names the more time you spend here.

I got lucky as the entire Midwest section moved over here

Doug or anyone else that got banned if you ever feel the need to want a username and password to ferrarichat, you can have mine (like to view pictures or pm people).

welcome ferraripete.

LOL, I think there's not many here that's not been banned. But I don't see much difference here and there with the posting, over there its more politically correct.

The only problem I ever had was with one poster when I said the English premiership was boring and some part of england was horrible -- so much as apparently I was a troll from another country LOL!.
