    Hello, all, this is my first post! Yesterday the transporters dropped off my first Ferrari, a Tour-de-france blue 355 F1 Berlinetta. What an amazing beast (Car, not dog)! Looking forward to the road and track.

    Is there anyone here from the Sound Bend/Mishawaka, Indiana area, or am I going to have to drive her out to Chicago to get service?

    TDF is a great color. And your guard dog should be able to keep it safe.

    You might post in the regional section for Indiana to see what Ferrari techs are around.

    I believe that car was owned by another Fchater. Looks great!

    TDF is the most beautiful color on a 355.

    Note* I may be a little biased. ;)

    Is this Blake's father's old 355? His was in the same color combination and from Florida too. Either way, you have a gorgeous car on your hands. Drive her in good health. Be sure to check out the North Central section, theres alot of great guys who have valuable information. You can also ask the Indiana FChatter's where they get there Ferrari's serviced.

    Take care,
    Chris

    I got it from a dealer, and am brand new to the community; but the old title was under "Randy Simon", so I'm assuming the answer is yes, it was Blake's father's old car. I guess this is the father of someone on the forums?...

    Didn't see this post until now! Enjoy the car! My dad babied that car as if it was one of his children! :D. So many good memories in that car. Enjoy it in the best of health! She's arguably one of, if not, the best 355 in the world.
