    Got back from France this morning with my Ferrari (boy does that sound weird!). Firstly i'd like to say a big thanks to Abby from Verdi who flew out with me to check out the car. Not just a great guy but a real expert who saved me a packet in negotiations. Thanks Abby.

    The car is great, and the body and interior are in excellant condition. I'll post better pics soon, but the ones below are at the airport in Tours (where we were met by the dealer). Some work needs to be done such as cambelts etc, but that was expected. Other things like a bloody dodgy starter motor was not expected! But nothing to worry about.

    The car drove sweet, but i didnt really push it. Got to about 110mph. It was the first time i have ever driven a ferrari. In fact it was the first time i have ever been in one driving (believe it or not). Previously had many opportunites but I always promised myself I would wait until the car was mine. Besides Abby had checked it out so I knew the car was OK. Also took it slow because I didnt want to tempt the cambelts!

    Anyway back home and very tired. But very happy.

    Finally thanks to all the guys on the site who have helped and advised me along the way. Been a great help.

    Congratulations Adnaan! I assume picture #3 isn't you keeling over saying "Oh my God, what have I got myself into", but rather an expression of interest into the heart of the beast. :D

    Lots of fun days ahead.

    Thanks Guys. Actually the guy leaning over is Abby doing the inspection on the car. In my excitement I forgot to hand the camera to someone else so I could get in the pics!

    Congratulations.......always a good idea to get someone who works on these sort of cars to check it out before purchasing.
