    Hehe,

    Merry belated Xmas everyone, just watching the movie "gone in 60 seconds" as its on tv, and who could resist as nicholas cage talks to "roger the ferrari salesman" Has anyone actually found that from a ferrari, their social status just rose? women just came up out of nowhere and offered numbers etc? I think the movie is good, but isnt that just a tiny bit unrealistic?:)

    I watched the movie last night, and to be honest, it was a bore.

    To answer your question though, in all of my years of owning Ferraris, I've never had the above happen, when a woman knew/saw I owned Ferraris.

    There is one 'poster' though, who has a 328 (his 1st F-car) and he claims that it happens to him all of the time. He even says that girls flash their boobs at him on a consistant basis, when he's driving his 328 (I've never had that happen either.....so I wonder)!

    However, when I'm in my 'Roller', I've had a number of come-ons from woman.

    An older, and much wiser sage than me, once told me that when you're driving a Ferrari, people look at the car; but when you're driving a Rolls Royce, people look to see whose driving it.

    This, I've found to be true.

    Which Ferraris did you guys see in this movie?

    I think I saw:

    275 GTB
    355 spider
    550 Maranello

    But I'm sure I'm missing a few.
