    This may be a dumb question, but keep in mind who's asking it ;) Now that both Ferrari Lake Forest and Continental AutoSports are exclusively Ferrari, how do they keep busy when it's 10 degrees outside and snowing for the next 3+ months?

    Just wondering,

    Not sure about the service department but dealerships sell their cars all over the Country so the weather doesn’t really matter too much in that case.

    Continental is usually super busy during the winter with older cars being serviced or refreshed/rebuilt.

    I can't speak for Lake Forest, but for us, we plan a lot of winter projects ahead of time so when the winter season is upon us, we still have a steady stream of work. Winter for us consists of major services and restoration projects along with an annual service here and major service there. Looking out my window, some of the projects currently are a 1967 Lamborghini 400GT, two 246 Dino's, and 365 GTB4 just to name a few. We still service Maserati's; we built quite a loyal customer base with the brand to be honest, but it's only work that isn't under warranty.

    Schedule big jobs for the winter. Sometimes offer a better price to wait.
