    Very nice. I like the full red centers of the seats with coordinating door inserts. I much prefer that look over a black Daytona seat with red strips that I had seen recently.

    Looks like you had your own little cars and coffee event there. Who drove which?

    I couldn't be happier. I feel the cars complement each other well.

    Sprite, after owning 3 Lamborghini's in the past, how do you like the Ferrari? I guess I am not asking do you like the Ferrari better...but rather your views of the car overall!?

    Well I just got it, so it's a bit early for opinions. Thoughts so far comparing it to my SL. The SL is obviously faster, firmer suspension, tighter steering. The F430 F1 transmission seems to be better than the SL E-Gear. I would say the 430 seems better in traffic. I'm driving it down to Orlando next Sunday so I will let you know after I put some more miles on it. 8k miles on my SL already and I just picked it up a few months ago.

    Going to smoke the lights and put some black rims on the car.

    I'm younger than you, maybe my back is better ;) I will admit it's not the most comfortable car in the world, but I really have no problem driving it for an extended time.

    God bless ya!
    I guess 25 years of humping ammo is taking it's toll.
    I am going to test drive the new LP560 in 2 weeks and might just have to get it if it's more comfortable.

    Nicely done. I have a radar detector built into my rear view mirror. Works well when needed. Was this on the trip from Atlanta to Orlando? I hope they did not replay any scenes from Deliverance while in the jail (you got a mightly nice set of lips...squeal like a pig...)

    I had Valentine 1 in the F430 and V1 + K40 in the Lambo. Supposedly he was sitting on an on ramp. We were being chased by GSP for 40 miles without knowing it. They called ahead and had a bunch of cops waiting for us in Dooley County. Charge is 125 in 70 and reckless. GSP were pissed when they caught up, apprently one of the cop cars ran out of gas during the chase.
