Of course, I had to put her on the lawn for a few photos...

Since this is THE Ferrari Forum, I included two of my previous love affairs.

Forza,

Dane

P.S. I CAN fit my six month old in the back of the Volvo...comfortably.

Dane,
You went from a Ferrari (oh, wait, 2 Ferraris) to seeking a Porsche and you settled on that old Volvo? I'm not knocking your car my friend, but I have seen you go from a young, married and in love, Army Officer living in Hawaii and driving a Ferrari to an old family man with a kid hanging out the rear window of the old Volvo in 2 short years.


Please don't take offense to this, I have the greatest respect for you. It amazes me, as I'm sure it does you, how quickly a person's lifestyle and priorites can change. I guess with your new career as a combat helicopter pilot you will get greater thrills than any Ferrari could ever give you. The Enzo is shit compared to what you are driving. I drive oil rigs and supertankers for a living. For me, 10 mph is a speed that requires my undivided attention. Man, what I wouldn't give to be able to have the skills and opportunity to strap on an Apache and make it do what it was designed for.

You're a lucky man Dane! When you come home you can take your wife and your son out for a relaxing drive in your Volvo.

I can now see where Chrysler gets the PT Cruiser (or whatever its called over there) from! What a style! The exact opposite of the finned American cars across the water.

360,

By all means! It'd be fun to meet you. I'm planning on attending the car show in Oxford on 7 Aug 04 in case you don't want to come to Fayetteville and want to see other cars as well. Either way, I'd look forward to it! :D

Forza,

Dane

Hey Dane, please let me know more about this show in Oxford. That's like 30 minutes from me.:)

And, last time I was in Fayette-Nam, I was picking up a Ditty move check. :oops:

Hi guys,

Thanks for the nice reception especially after I've been away from the site. I sold the Volvo and my motorcycle. After a good, hard search, I just sent a check for a 1981 308 GTSi. Multiple award winner at local FCA meets. I'll take delivery on or about 19 May 05. I can't wait. I'll post what photos I do have which are mostly close-ups.

BTW, flying is going well. I get to actually shoot two or three Hellfires, multiple rockets and a whole lot of 30mm this June.

We just had our second (and final!) child; a little girl named Holly. Our boy, Lance, is now 16 months old and adjusting, as are we, to a little sister.

My wife realized how much I missed the Ferrari(s) and finally OK'd the purchase of another. The woman is patient and understanding, to say the least. I'll attach more photos latuh.'

Thanks, again, all. I appreciate the warm welcome. Dane

Dane,

I would say you are doing pretty good! Three Ferraris in three years, two children in less time (congrats on the new baby by the way) and a new helicopter to pilot! I remember you wife was also a Blackhawk pilot, is she training on the Apache, or are the kids keeping her busy?

I love the 308, looks awesome and I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Andrew,

Yes, I am a pretty happy guy. It's my wife that's going nuts! :D
She does fly Blackhawks but insists she'll never get in an Apache; she's too proud.

She knew how much I missed the Ferrari(s) and made me a deal. She said I had to keep it for a long time and not have it shipped to North Carolina since we are moving to Idaho late this year. I thought those were terms with which I certainly could live.... :wink:

Great job site with the site. I'm proud of the work you've done. Dane
