    Today is the last day to see her. I got the up close and personal tour from David (Regional Sales Ferrari NA).
    Pictures don't do this Car justice.... Thank God it doesn't look like a
    G35.

    I did and it seriously lacked the wow factor of a Pina design, in my opinion compared to previous (and other current) work. I think the Enzo is more attractive and I really don't like Enzo at all until it opens its engine bay and then I'm interested.

    I was pretty disappointed in the whole F/M display. Blue and Silver? I mean really. I have seen some nice Silver 360 Spyders, and I have seen some nice Silver 550/575M's BUT the yellow badge looked terrible on the 575m and I didn't exactly fall in love with the blue 612. What, No Enzo??!!
    WHAT HAPPENED TO RED?!?!? I guess there was a Red Stradle there during the week....... To bad it left.
    Maybe I am just tainted... Why spend $100 and drive into L.A. to see two Silver Ferrari's when we can drive 10 minutes to Crystal Cove and see F40's, Enzo's, RED 575's, 360's, BB512's in Red AND Blue, 328's, 355's 348's, On and On......

    Compared to the morning get together, the car show was really a big let down for me :(

    O.K. off my soap box.......

    It's true - I was dissapointed with the car show - Had a much better time at Brian's and Crystal Cove.

    Rick - What did you think of the Lotus Elise?

    The Lotus was cool. But of course we saw one at C.C. in the morning. Much better view too!

    I don't think you missed much......

    The one at Crystal Cove is a little different though - I liked the US versions at the car show better. I really liked the British racing green. Should I sell the 328 for it? :)

    Now I love the new Elise, but I see a 288 in your future a bit more Jerry :)

    Are you seeing the lotto in my future also? Because accoountants working for the man are just not bringing home that type of money. :( I'm lucky to have the 328!

    I was seriously ready to sell the 328 for the Elise - I've got issues. :)

    Did you get in the Elise with the top *on*? Seems like it would get old after a while - except for the part when you're helping a miniskirt-wearing hottie in and out of the car...

    Seems the best way to get in and out is just to hop over the closed door - with the top down, of course.

    Thanks for the photos. Now I need to see one. May need something to replace my M3 coupe in the near future.

    I sat in it - I am only 5' 8", so I was comfortable. :)

    I absolutely loved it.

    lol, nice - I don't think it's in my future because I don't play! Maybe I can win the WSOP one day!

    WSOP = World Series of Poker

    I'm sure Malissa won't mind. You in the Elise and HER in the 355 :)

    Lana says an Elise is what you get when a Viper and a Mini mate.....

    Not sure if it's a good thing or not..... I thought they were pretty cool. I thought the H3t was pretty cool too! I need something other than my Duelly or my Corvettes to pick up supplies for the Pizza place in. There may be a Mini in my future...... When did you say you play Poker? :)

    Did you miss this part of my post:
    Maybe you need a course in creative accounting 101 :)

    Th H3 would be one bad ass grocery getter! I like all the H's - 1, 2, 3. :)

    I love the mini.

    As for when do I play poker.... Every day! lol

    I play far too much on the net, but I play in love games once or twice a month. You play much?
