cute little website, I'd join but I live in Fort Lauderdale! That sounds like a good idea for a club/exotic car group down here. We use to have the same thing for our Ducati owners group.
To answer your question specifically if you'd please check out my website http://www.miuraprototype.com/ and once you get there scroll down to the section "Read How The Dream Began:" You'll see precisely what I did in Europe for 3 years. I did what you said and many times over for a 3 years in a row! So I'm most familiar with Euro-Jet type lifestyle action. I still head over to Europe a couple of times a year always returning to Geneva which is my favorite city in Europe.Some pretty ambitious plans there like "the occasional jaunt to Europe to skiing in the Alps, play in Monaco’s casinos, or run the bobsled in St. Moritz." Have you done any of these things yet, would love to hear some reports of how you got on?
