Default Hello - hello- -hello - hello - hello *echo*

It's hot. I have a cold. Feel like doing something, but then not really. Sent the Honey out to play. Bored to tears. That is all.

Default Skipped the Concorso. Traffic sucked - again.

Went to Historics on Saturday, and the Ferrari national meet on Tuesday.<ul><li><a href="https://forums.audiworld.com/a6/msgs/422823.phtml">Lots of pics</a></li></ul>

Default California Spider? Very nice. Plan well ahead. We got tickets

in the mail, and then arranged with our (Alfa) club for trackside parking. Check to see if "your" club offers this as well.

The Ferrari national meet sometimes moves around to other locations, but this was really nice without the crowds.

Looks like the Ferrari club may not attend the Concorso next year due to traffic problems. A lot of exhibitors left early, and still ran into a 2 hour long jam in which many of the old (priceless) cars overheated. They would pull to the side of the road, but no tow truck could get through. Police would come along and tell them to move - which of course they couldn't - and then ticket them. Gee let's p*ss off a bunch of people who own multi-million dollar cars....... One comment overheard was, "if you spent as much time working on your cars as polishing them..." Like they had traffic jams hours long in Italy many years ago. Sheesh!

Default heh, nice--alienate the people who bring business into Monterey.

Since when is pulling over a ticketable offense?
They should move the show to Marin CivCtr--close to SF (and me!)

Default One driver brought his Lambo SUV. After waiting a while, he just eased it over the curb

nose through some shrubs, and took off across the golf course. Now that's thinking ;-)

I hear ya. Too far from Laguna Seca if they held it up further north. Lots of people show at the Concorso on Friday, race at Seca on Saturday, show again at Pebble on Sunday, etc. PITA logistically ;-)
