More Mecca

Ummm,, you guy's are kidding about the pissing match right?

O.K., so someone comes there from 15000 miles away, and now has to chose which event to visit.
I'm sorry, but FCA is clueless about this. Has anyone spoken directly to Bill Schwore (sp) about this.

Regards,

Andrew.

Mecca, split?

Hi,

Can anyone explain this?

"August 15, 2003, because at 8:00 a.m., the FCA-Pacific Region will be gathering at the San Carlos Beach Park in Monterey's historic Cannery Row"

DOES this mean that there will be a dilution of the Ferrari's at Italiano?

Mecca

Hi, The name of the indian place is "India's Clay Oven". It's on Del Monte, half a block east of the Doubletree, between Alvarado and Tyler. It sounds like Tom is really intent on doing the Keith Moon thing to his room so I'll help that process along. Let us know the window of time that the tub is o...

mecca

Tom, Now, you have met myself and Sam. Do you really think you can "throw a few refreshments in the tub" for just us two, let alone whom else might attend???? We are big guy's,,,,, remember.... Anyway, Thursday night is usually the Indian across from the "auction" hotel at the wharf. I am sure that ...

Mecca,, I mean, Concorso Italiano

Hi All,

The day is fast approaching in August for us all to congregate at the new venue for the show.

So - who's bringing a car (I don't count this year as I just bought a 67 Continental Convertible, so probably will bring that, no Ferrari)

So - who's going.


Any other sugestions?

Wiring Loom

Hi, I have contemplated replacing the wiring loom in our GTE for a little while now, but the process was excalated the other day when it was completely pulled from the car. The existing one could be salvaged, and sections replaced, but I figured that someone may know of a company there who would rep...

Paperwork for Car.

Hi All, Thanks for posting info about my GTE, 3835. I was contaced by Kare a few weeks ago and we went over the meaning of the documentation, and speculation on why it was generated. It is probably a telex to the dealer that the car they ordered has arrived. The cost is high, particulary in Aussiepe...

DA Club

Oh, sorry, one other thing. During the process of getting my car on the road I had frequent visits from a one Tom Meadows. He offered an interesting set of "personal Statistics" one day which could go along way to explain your lonelyness at the Ferrari SF event. Off 955 GTE's Built, there are probab...

Da Club

Hi Luke, I think your decision to not renew is sort of sad in a way, but perhaps for reasons that you might not think. When I still lived in Manhattan Beach I too was a member of the FCA. We used it to attend events, the free ones, like drive days and special F1 viewing's, prefered parking at things...

I think the prices were interesting as well, and not too much of a shocker to me given that I followed that decline in prices in the 90's till I could afford a car.
The funny part for me was in Yale's post. The current seller claim's "Very correct and original", after two restorations.....

Later.

Radiator Shop

Hi Bill, Crandall Radiator service re-cored my GTE radiator with a 3 row flat fin core for $388.00 It seemed to work fine, the reference came from an Aston Martin friend of mine who got similar work done on a DB4. They are sort of near you at 4151 W. Marine Ave Lawndale. 310-676-2936 Regards, Andrew.

Timing Chain Tension.

Most people will say that you can hear it. I determined that mine was loose by running timing light on both banks. One bank, I think the Right, the marker "lept about" under the light, while the other bank was steady. After tensioning up the chain both banks were the same. So, I would check the timi...
