Visit To Bob Smith Coachworks – September 26, 2009

September 26th, 2009

The Arkansas-Oklahoma Chapter joined with the Dallas Chapter in thoroughly enjoying a visit to fellow member Bob Smith’s restoration shop, Coachworks, in Gainesville on Saturday, September 26.

Bob gave us a complete, guided tour of his world-class shop.  Not only did we ogle several Ferraris (275GTB, 250 Tour deFrance, 250GTE, Lusso, SWB and several others) but also a Bugatti sedan, a Mercedes-Benz Gullwing and even an MG.  We also had a good look at Bob’s equipment.  All the while Bob regaled us with stories and explanations and happily answered any and all questions.  (Coachworks will be moving to a new, purpose-built site in the not-to-distant future.)

An Italian lunch at Luigi’s, also in Gainesville, topped-off a wonderful day.  It gave us an opportunity to continue the moment and enjoy some wonderful fellowship with friends of a like mind.

A good turnout and a most enjoyable experience.

European Grand Prix Watch Party – August 23, 2009

August 23rd, 2009

The Arkansas-Oklahoma Chapter met on Sunday, August 23, in the home of members Mark and Arlene Cain in Oklahoma City. The Cains served a very nice brunch which included bagels and lox. We then watched the European G.P. held this year on a street course in Valencia, Spain. At least Kimi took third place in this one: a bright spot in an otherwise dismal season for Ferrari.
