    So I was listening to one of four Ferrari sound clips on my iPod and I thought to myself, "Self, are you a little too obsessed with these cars? I mean, you have fricken' sound clips on your iPod for cryin' out loud!" Am I too obsessed? Anyone else in the same boat as me?

    Oh...and by the way, I'm listening to a soundclip of a Challenge Stradale while I type this post. :eek:

    I spend a 30 minutes a day searching you tube for Ferrari engine sounds/videos and I don't want to even think about how much time I spend in this forum.

    To me you sound perfectly normal, but you cant ask a crazy person if you are normal :)

    There is a 10 step withdrawl process (Ferrari Owners and Dreamers Annonymous) that you can join.

    The good part: You get rid of your Ferrari obsession

    The bad part: You have the constant urge to buy a Prius

    I didn't think it was possible to be "too" obsessed - if anything we aren't obsessed enough ":D:D:D:D:D

    Where do you find the Challenge Stradale sound clip? Is it a MP3 format? I'd love to have it for my Blackberry. I currently have a sound clip of the 458 Italia set as my text message ringer.

    You are addressing yourself in the third person.

    Problem.

    The fact that you seem to acknowledge this means you might be a candidate for treatment.

    Here's the link:

    http://www.autocrossing.com/civic/sounds/sounds.html

    It's "2001 Ferrari 360 Challenge Car on the dyno." Doesn't sound like it's on a dyno to me...and it sounds more like a CS than it does a Challenge Car. It is MP3 format; just click on it and it will ask if you want to save it. It's 1:12 long. :)

    Hope this helps!!! :D

    But if you're proclaiming yourself insane you must be sane enough to have a grasp on the real world. The classic catch 22.

    Well, some have said that the exhaust note alone is worth the price of admission...(live, not MP3, of course.) I don't think you have to worry, at least until there's deviant behavior (selling your wife's personal items or stealing money to buy more Ferraris/parts/)and your focus on Fs leads to outcomes detrimental to you, such as loss of job, deteriorating mental state, or crumbling social life. I could tell you stories that would make you feel, comparatively, very sane!

    I must be too. I have a F355 sound clip on my phone as my text message ringtone. Anytime someone hears I hear the same response, "That is soooo cool!" :D

    I agree 100%. You may want to ask normal people about normal behavior. Not us...

    I get chills sometimes when I hear a nice car revving... I don't know if that's normal.
    Listening to engine sounds is normal though. It's one of the aspects of being a car guy. ;-)

    To this day I still roll down my window whenever a nice car passes. Earlier this week I did it for a sonorous 360 Spider.

    One of my favorite memories is riding in a car with a head honcho from MotorTrend when, upon seeing an F430, we both rolled down our windows at the same time to listen. We just looked at each other and laughed. It's a car guy thing.
