    it wouldn't be completely unlikely in california. i remember visiting my dad in malibu a few summer's ago and saw an F50 and 550 barchetta (woman driving) within a minute of eachother. check out the spotters thread(s) in the southern calif. section for some crazy single day, same hour, etc. sightings of ferraris and other exotics. awesome!

    WOW, Jerry...you are one lucky guy! Driving the 288, not to mention alongside an F40, must have been one incredible experience! I'm heading over to read your write-up now...

    damn... that's kick a$$. I dig the personal pictures sometimes more than the professional pictures. Sometimes they bring out the little unposed items about a car.

    I'm selling the 328 to a local F-Chatter in a few weeks.

    The Testarossa hasn't arrived yet. Doesn't ship till early next week. I can already tell you I like it though. :) I drove it once in Florida and can't wait to start driving it again!

    Chiaro: Remenber to thank Armen for being so gracious to meet with me last winter. He went far out of his way for an F-chatter he had otherwise never met!

    Also say hello to Rick, who I had the fortune to meet briefly as one of the Crystal Cove get-togethers was drawing to a close. (that car, wow!) Both Armen and Rick are the kind of people that make me proud to be a member of the Ferrari community.

    That 288 is sure one fine example! (the F40 turbos apear to be a must-do.) And rick's car is immaculate.

    I got to drive an F-40 last summer! It was amazing. To top it off it was my first time to drive ANY Ferrari!
