TW - great to meet you as well!

As far as the backup navigator - she is single and looking for a guy with an F-car. Wayne - need to add a Ferrari section to the site so we can get some of these guys converted. Would any of you dedicated Porsche guys convert for this?

Would I? I think I just did.
Oh wait, what were we talking about?

Seriously, if I were young, single, rich, and good looking I'd be after that.
unfortunately...... zero out of 4 isn't gonna cut it.

Well, I'm in the same boat, Sammy. I was hoping the F-car would make up for at least 3 out of four. And, of course, the young lady would have to enjoy living in the F-car, since everything else would have to go...

Though both being high maintenance, at least you only have to worry about valve jobs on the f-car.

I thought they came with one built into the price...hmmmm.

I don't have an F-car, but I think I can take the extra off your hands anyway...call it a favor

Put her on ice, I'll be back in the Los Angeles area in a couple of months.

Think Leasing.



I have a bunch of other shallow, mysoganistic comments -- but I'm just green with envy and red with impure thoughts.

^...ditto...although, I must say, I am much more impressed with Motion's mechanical quiver than the feminine one (both are commendable).

edit: I would, however, go flat black on the Ferrari.

I showed this video to a few people and they both commented they could see why a few of the navigators tossed their cookies.

It definitely catches the spirit of the moment though...

Looking for a guy with an F-car? Guess I'm lucky I live in Wisconsin where the main criteria is gainful employement!

Looks like you California guys have all the fun. Tempting to take a drive out next year although I'm certain I wouldn't keep up with the other toys.......or the cars.

It's not an F-car, but is brightly colored and has its engine in the right place...does that count?

I think the co-navigator could actually move up a class to a Porsche. Now a flat black F-car sounds bad, but have her get down with a flat black early 911. I know someone who has just the ride. And the jeans are fine, but I can't get used to the pointy shoes that make girls feet all look like long gunships. Throw those out the window, let's go barefoot.

Would a young guy with a red widebody 911 cabriolet cut it?? Oh, and it has gold BBS rims too... better than any Ferrari. Will she go for that?? Also, the rear seats are natuarally heated as well. So, should I give you my number to forward to her ?

I hate you Cali guys, so much fun with like minded people. Here in MI, nobody ever (except once) gets the guys together for some twisty road fun. I could join the wine and cheese crowd, but I have a hard time acting like a "I poop vanilla soft serve" guy.
