    I have a little boy who is turning 6 years old next month. He loves Ferrari cars, actually he is obsessed with Ferrari cars and has been for the past 2 years. He collects small ferrari model cars, ferrari books, etc. His dream is to grow up and race ferrari cars. We live in Roswell, GA and so for the past two years we often go by the ferrari dealership so that he can look at and touch ferrari's. He gets so excited, his whole face lights up!

    Every day he dreams about getting a ride in a Ferrari and I would love for him to get his wish (he is a great kid!).

    We do not own ferrari or know anyone else who does. I did not know if any of you know of any upcomming events in metro Atlanta where he can get a ride in a ferrari. This would be the best day for him and I would love to surprise him!

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I live in Historic Roswell and would be happy to take him around. Just send me a private message and we can arrange a time.

    Go to Caffeine and Octane the first Saturday of every month (from about 9am - 11am) at the Avenues at East Cobb. Great cars and lots for him to look at.

    I live a couple of exits south but I would also be willing to take him for a ride if it doesn't work out with mwhitesell. Out of curiosity what are the regulations on booster seats in the front passenger seat?

    I'll throw my name into the hat too! It's my birthday next month also - it took me 46 years before I got the chance to drive in a Ferrari, and only then because I went out and bought one! Had I been given the chance at age six, goodness only knows what I'd be driving now :)

    I am so very excited to have gotten such great and generous responses! Thank you all so very much! You have no idea how much your kindness means to me and he will be so thrilled!

    This will truly be the happiest day of his life (so far)!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Awesome birthday present. If I owned a Ferrari I sure would be glad to give him a spin. Maybe a couple of the guys can meet and give him several rides in different models. He would probably flip.

    Your little boy is so cute! He is absolutely adorable.
    Thank you all who responded. My little boy will have the best birthday ever and it is because of all of your kindness and generosity.

    I just wanted to send a special thanks to Shashi for giving my son a ride in his Ferrari yesterday.

    He was so stunned with this wondeful surprise that he did not even know what to say. He is also somewhat shy.
    However, as I expected it was a great hit! He has been telling everyone about his Ferrari ride and that he got to start the engine! I was so happy that he had his own exciting bedtime story to tell instead of us reading one.

    Thank you for making his wish come true! That was really wonderful of you!

    Sincerely,
    FerrariMom
