    Today, before the Super Bowl, I was out on my driveway after mowing my lawn. The new neighbor drove his panel trunk up the dead end street. I knew he would be coming back. As he came toward me, I said hello. He stopped and talk about his 52 Chevy panel. It was yellow with his 4 year old son and a friend of his son. After talking for a while, he asked what year my Mustang was. Yipes, my Maranello is now a Mustang. That is why my Maranello is so nice. It is very discreet.

    How did you keep form busting out laughing at him about him calling your 550 a Rustang. I wouldve gone on a hour long rant about how much different the 2 cars are.

    Ouch. Happens all the time though , not just with Ferrari's.
    I had just finished washing my Dart (see profile) at one of those do-it-yourself places and had it sitting out front. Zit faced kid pulls up in an LS1 Camaro (mommy and daddy probably thought he needed a bigger pacifier). This is the conversation that ensued:

    Kid: Nice car.
    Me: Thanks. You too.
    Kid: You race it?
    Me: Nah. [yeah ;) ]
    Kid: What engine you got?
    Me: Just the stock 318.
    Kid: Oh. I thought maybe you'd have a 350 or a 383 in here.
    *note* Hood is closed, he's looking at the "DODGE" emblem in script.
    Me: Now why would I want to put a Chevy engine in my Dodge?
    Kid: Well, you never know man. These days you never know.
    Me: ...

    True story. At least he didn't say "Nice Nova".

    I was in a Starbucks in Santa Monica once. A guy saw me get out of my 64 330 GT 2+2. He says to me...Nice Superleggera. I said, actually it's a 330 GT. The guy says...All of those cars are Superleggeras. I said no, actually those are specific cars and Superleggera was a form of lightweight construction. He turns to his girlfriend and says...the guy (me) doesn't even know what kind of car he has. He left the restaurant and got in his Range Rover. Moron!

    I've had two people who thought my 550 was a Mustang. More recently, I had a young woman tell me how nice my Lamborghini is.....THAT was devastating!

    I had someone mistake mt ex-348 Spider for a Mustang because of the Ferrari horsey emblem which they thought was the Mustang horsey emblem..

    One day I was talking to my mom and she said "OH! I saw a car you would have liked today. It was a really neat looking Corvette - but it had a weird horse symbol on the back......"

    Oh boy....
