If you have the passion for Ferrari, join the Ferrari Club of America. Ownership is not a requirement, you must only be a tifosi. I think you'll find that the FCA in your area is more active with more events than the Maserati club. Also, if you have plans to buy a Ferrari being a member of the FCA puts you in touch with other owners & it's a great way to learn about the cars. Many cars trade hands without being advertised so contacts can be helpful.

I m sorry, I should have been more clear...I would like to show up to the driving events...maybe
grab a drink with the guys and learn more about the marque. I'm not talking about going to all events and meetings etc.

Kind regards,
Stephen
Late to the party, but we would absolutely invite you to come along. You would need to be an offical FCA member to go on their drives, but Dealership rallys and such, come on out!

I think we can all join a FIAT club :)
If the Ferrari guys refuse you, which "could" make sense, you can remind them we all drive a FIAT.
Our FIAT's are made with parts from different FIAT brands including FIAT, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Maserati. And we can even accept Ferrari's Formula 1 in the club since they also sport the badge ahahahah

There might be such a club but it's not the Ferrari Club -- that's for Ferraris. And the other brands are other brands, regardless of communal components.

Join. They will most likely be cool and you will learn a lot. Get some first hand info since there seems to be a lot of misinformation.

This is how I learned everything that I needed before I got my car.

Most Ferrari Clubs like FCA do openly accept (modern) Maserati's, several of the Ferrari folks also have Maserati's and may want to take their GT to an event as well. You're usually a bit of an outsider but if you're a good guy, enjoy the club events and stay out of trouble, you should be just fine and you'll have a blast on the drives.

It's quite difficult to put together a Maserati Club in any part of the country or the world and get any kind of turnout, simply because Maserati has often produced less cars per year that Ferrari...

2012 - Ferrari Production Worldwide = 7,318
2012 - Maserati Production Worldwide = 6159

Of course this will all change soon as Maserati ramps up production with the new models!

Best Regards,

I think you'd be OK as long as you realize this going in. Some will treat you like a brother but others will never warm up to you so don't try to win everyone over.

I don't think that weighs poorly on them, it's just that it's a "club" and some folks prefer to stick to certain guidelines when it comes to membership.

Nothing about the Ferrari Club of America

What do you guys think? I love Ferrari's but can't afford one now...I was thinking about
asking the local club if I could join. Do you guys think that is a smart move or would they look at my like who is this guy?

Thank you,
Stephen

requires ownership.

Now the Ferrari Owners Club is a different story.

Yes you can join. The only downside is you may buy a Ferrari......


I belong to the FCA and PCA and bring the Fcar to PCA and vice versa. No one cares.



Do what makes you happy.

Interesting reading your post..i'am not a club member but as a 2008 massi gt owner i love nothing more than an early morning sunday drive in the texas hill country. Living in Spicewood gives me many choice options! Usually spent along, i know these rides can be alot of fun shared with like minded drivers.What are my options in local clubs..the hill country Alfa Romero club and the local Farrari club..there u have it..I would be happy to " tag along" with the Farrari guys but my concerns are the same as yours. Would i offend them by even asking? Maybe we need a local Maserati club...any suggestions??

In Australia theFerrari club charter allows membership for those that do not own a Ferrari. It is a condition that you have a desire to one day own a Ferrari. I am seriously thinking of joining the Aussie club again even though I no longer own one. I found the clubs members to be great people and their meetings, rally’s etc to be second to none whereas the Aussie Maserati club does stuff all.
If you desire to own a Ferrari or simply love the marque I would definitely join and enjoy great company.

Sounds familiar.......we're you the Grigio Nuvolari GS owner I talked to last Thursday night at the Art Loop event Tony organized? (I had the red Zagato Spyder parked on the opposite side of the street)

It was great to meet you! Welcome to the forum. It's a great place to find all sorts of useful info on modern Maseratis. I've spent a lot of time here. I'm sure you'll get a lot out of it.

as one looking to get a used qport, i saw there was no local (md., d.c) maserati club and e mailed the prez of the ferrari club if he knew of any. he did not, but invited me to consider the ferrari club. i am not inclined to do so, as while the social aspect would be nice i presume many events are geared (ha) to info about ferraris. i had a rolls royce (88 spur) and there is an active rr club here. i do not understand why a bunch of the local owners have not attempted to organize such a local club for maserati enthusists.
