Hello Swiss Ferrari People

Hi Ferrari Fans in Switzerland
I live in the USA but will be moving to Lucerne, Switzerland in December.
My intention is to buy a Ferrari next year as the fulfillment of a life long dream. I am looking at 348's as they seem to be the best value right now.
Anyway I am reading books, surfing the net and generally learning about the pros and cons of Ferrari ownership.
My first Ferrari experience was driving a 206 Dino owned by folk singer Al Stweart in 1967. I managed to get him to let me drive it when we went to Yorkshire together to play at a music festival in Bickershaw. It was an awesome experience however, I later fell in love with a 275GTB owned by George Harrison...he wouldn't let me drive it ! Don't think I'll ever be able to afford a 275GTB, surely one of the most beautiful of all Ferraris.
Good to be here and to join in this Ferrari community.
If there are any Swiss Ferrari people who wish to communicate and maybe organise events please get in touch.
Rock on

I was thinking of joining the Swiss Ferrari Club but I don't speak any German and thought it may not be worth joining until my German improves (may take years) I live in Zug, and own Ferrari 458 which I bought from the main dealer there.

Do you think it's worth joining?

I'm part also of FCS, the Roman section. But I do participate also to others sections events, especially the yearly Sternfarht which is always a very nice organized event. I don't speak German very well but this has never been a problem. Many members do speak English and will make you feel comfortable I wouldn't hesitate to give it a try
