Know Your Yangsters

Post by Tom Wilson » Sun Jan 31, 2010 9:54 pm

After meeting with a bunch of the gang at Cavallino, it made me realize how nice it is to put a face to a name. Though no substitute for sitting down face to face and making them buy you a beer, I thought some photos I took at the Classic might be nice.

Please add photos of yourself with your car!

Tom Yang (tyang)– Our fearless leader and reason for finding each other in the first place. Note to Cavallino presenters and folks have not met him; though it looks like “Yang”, his name is pronounced “Young”.

Mark Dempsey (mdempsey) – Mark drove his Queen all the way from Maryland to Palm Beach for this event. Has the coolest beer stein on the site and knows four words of French.

Tom Kizer (tomkizer)– Tom brought his Queen down from Quebec and drove it from Maryland. He received a well deserved Platinum award for his car. Ask him and he will be happy to tell you all about it in French.

Great idea Tom. They say there is a first time for everything !!! By the way please change your tag from:

Tom Wilson - Series III 250 GTE, SN 4247 To Tom Wilson - Series III 250 GTE, SN 4247 IN MANY MANY BITS
www.Ferrari250GTE.com www.Ferrari250GTE.com

Otherwise people might think you actually have a Ferrari that can be driven.
Glad you had a great time at Cavellino. I should join you next year. Maybe we could drive your GTE accross from LA, ha ha.
Cheers

I'm up for the drive John. You could carry a couple of boxes, I could carry a couple of boxes... Get a couple dozen more folks in a convoy and 4247 would be at Cavallino!

Hey Tom
2 good ideas one after another. Your on a roll. Check out the Cavallino regulations. Does it say anywhere that cars have to be assembled for display !!!??? If not, why not display 4247 as a pile of parts on the lawn outside the Breakers ?? Now that would be cool. Sort of like a before and after shot. Every other GTE could be the after and you could be the before.

This is me Bill Tracy (BT) getting ready to do some unofficial track driving in my Ginetta. Sadly, I sold my Ferrari 348ts in May.

Somehow I managed to miss taking a picture of Todd (william) and Angie Hudkins, in spite of spending a lot of time with them. Fortunately, they sent me one to post.
