    Anyone on FerrariChat own the black 348 spyder at Safeway (Chandler & Desert Foothills) tonight? Quite surprising in Ahwatukee to have another Ferrari to park my 550 next to while buying groceries!

    We're fine here in the slums. A few pro golfers, a few Diamondbacks and me living large in Ahwatukee. Plus, I'm 10 minutes from my office and my wife is 15 minutes from her's. If I moved to PV I'd be just another poor guy driving used Ferraris.......

    That might be more rare than most F cars in this country.

    Hello everyone,

    Although I am not a Ferrari owner yet, I am in the Mesa area i have found it is not uncommon to spot a Ferrari in the Val Vista/McKellips area. Maybe not as many as Scottsdale but north east Mesa has its share.

    Next time I see one I'll post the color and model, maybe it's one of yours.

    I've been seeing a lot more Ferrari's out here in Mesa... The owner of the GTR is an awesome guy, and his nearly stock Skyline is rediculously fast. Tonight I saw an R33 GTS25T. Black with chrome wheels. RB's sound awesome!

    I used to think I was the only one that felt that way when I lived in Ahwatukee. I had a friend with a yellow 360 coupe there but other than that I did not see too many. I have since moved to Rancho Santa Fe CA (north/San Diego) where Ferraris are real common and my 355 Spider is old news, but I still enjoy driving it.

    That's right, friends. I'm livin' large, but I have to do it in C-Town, otherwise known as Coolidge, AZ. Yes, it's that little town (population 10k) halfway between Phoenix and Tucson (about 60 miles from each).

    The only Ferraris I've seen here are ones on my screen (I'm shopping for a yellow 355).

    Please excuse my ignorance--what is a CT? I'd love to meet at Tag's sometime. I'm a fish out of water over here. Many people look at me strangely when I roll up to Wal-Mart or Safeway. Sure, gentrification will continue its inexorable march, but not overnight. For now, they don't know what to make of me.

    Hello Fellow Ahwatukeeian....(hmmmm not quite sure how to spell that.) Please wave when I drive by in my little white 308gts. Old school baby! You couldn't pay me to move out of this area. No traffic, quiet and everything you need is close in the "hood" or within easy reach on the freeways. Scottsdale has just become way too crowded.

    I know of a 355 GTS 99' Yellow For sale .In my opinion a MUCH better car (inherent issues on spiders, as well as park bench type seats ).Besides a much more rare item.This particular on is F-1...... 21,000k.....@$88,000.00 OBO.

    I live in Chandler as well and own this SAME car BUT w/ challenge grill,tubi headers and exhaust,bypass pipes,a little carbon here and there,of course in yellow.F-1 as well.

    Hmmm. GTS has removable roof yes? I have seen a yellow one down here on Alma school south of Germann. Can you pm me a number or give me a call? I would love to here your opinions on the park bench and issues of the spyder and your advice in general. Thanks.

    When I was visiting Pheonix, we went out to shop at Target on Pecos Road, near that mall, a Bentley Cont. GT was parked in the first parking spot, this was way before the CGT was released. Like 3 to 5 months before it released. Don't remember the day or when it was. The color has slipped my mind also, but that car was beautiful, inside was very nice also.

    You aren't alone in Tukee. I'm just another 360 on the preserve. There are a few exotics in the area. Yellow Gallardo one street over, blue 360 spider in the area, Tony Womack had a blue Diablo when he was living in the hood. Just got my 360 out of the shop. 2500 miles out of the old clutch..... not sure if I'm taking it in the back end but seems a little low on usage is you ask me.

    The Yellow 355GTS F-1 1999' is mine (thats the one probably seen @ Alma and Germain) I pass through there often .My X streets are Alma and Queen Creek. Although not for sale ,If you'd like I should be able to be able to give you some input on that particular model mine has now 56,000 miles on it and will be returned to me this weekend!! Looking foward to her re-introduction :).
    Yes the above is true of the seats as well as issues w/ the spider that are to some people preffered NOT I. I prefer my GTS
