Local Ferrari meet

This took place on Dec 6th in Raleigh, NC.

The turnout wasn't as good as the previous, nor did we have rare exotics as last time, but there were some nice looking Ferraris that showed up.

Enjoy.

















Some NSX guys show up as well. The black one is twin turbo.

This wasn't that good of representation of Raleigh bro. Last one in the summer had SLRs, Enzo, Carrera GTs, Gallardos, and much more. This was kind of a weak turnout, but it was still pretty cool to flock of Ferraris cruising around.

You should try to get some NC people together for Benz meet. That would be pretty cool as well.

LOL!

NC is nice with nice people but it isn't immuned to the buttholes. Surprisingly everyone at the meet seem like down to Earth individuals.

Shane loathes Ferraris almost as much as Audis, so don't take it personal. He's working on it

^That would have been an improvement. Poor ol' NSX's having to sit across the lot from Ferrari's. Imagine if those Acuras had feelings how insulted they would be.

None taken. It was pretty funny.


To shane,

The black NSX in the picture is a twin turbo and it was spanking the silver F430 on the highway. they raced several times with the NSX steady pulling on it each time. Very impressive.

Sounds like a good idea boss.

Let's see how things go with our upcoming projects and dynos as we have been discussing, and perhaps when the weather gets a little warmer we might be able to put something together. Or should we wait till later on this year so you can pull up in your new W211 AMG E55 Kompressor?

Hermm....
