Re: Monterey 2009

I think the car thing on next weekend in Monterey is overrated. We will be in the pub - the crown and anchor in downtown.

Re: The Quail

Luke, just got confirmation on the Casa Munras. We were on the wait list so it looks like
rooms are opening up.

Good luck.

Re: The Quail

Like Tom Wilson I'm looking for a good soul to part with three tickets if at all possible. Cash, of course.

Anyone- anyone?

Regards,

Andrew.

Photo Two, getting the solo ear bending from Tom is none other than the irrepressable Sir David Booth. He looks a little under the weather whilst balancing that wine bottle.

Say - did Kerry spill any beer this Year.

Sorry I missed All Y'all.

Ah yes, Monterey - or Mecca as I like to call it. We have booked the usual room at the Casa Munras, so we can look down our noses at the Aston Martin club gathering below us. However - still not booked the flights as yet so will have to advise that later. If I'm there I will see you all at the party...

[quote="Rudy van Daalen Wetters"]The passsenger side distributor may have weak advance springs as the timing mark on that side flutters at about 2800 RPM and onward. The flutter can range up to a 10 mm deviation. The driver side timing mark stays quite steady throughout the RPM range. " Hi rudy, jus...

Who is the Australian head gasket supplier that you recently commented on? Hi Rudy, The guy is selling his gaskets to GT Parts, and Partsource, and I'd imagine priced competitively. Tom Hi, I don't think there is any "secret" thing about this. The gaskets are sent over to Bill and Geoff and as they...

Bill at GT car parts also can supply the head gaskets made here in Australia. I heard recently that a batch of 250 outside plug series are about to be made. Should be there in 3 or so months.

Regards,

Andrew.

Hi, Tom's a little younger than I, David is a little older. I have teenage children, and I am the same age as my GTE. - that makes me old dude. Tom is right when he said I was hiding out in Australian macho land. I feel the same way about selling, just wanted to get the party started. Besides, teasi...

I cannot believe that such a simple topic has brought out all the sappy, teary-eyed old men. Super Dave, really...Tom, take the money and run dude. Buy back another one during the next real-estate boom when everyone is pulling out of cars. For now get a GTC, or if you keep the America, get something...

Look, I for one am not buying into this fantasy that 2+2 ferrari's are the fabulous investment that others seem to think. I bought our car in 1995, at what...
