    It all started when my daughter asked with a sweet voice: "daddy , can we take the Ferrari?"
    I had to go Grocery shopping this morning: Jim was coming over with his family , and as a guest and friend from Ferrarichat, the BBQ lunch had to be rich and up to his expectations :)

    My daughter wanted to join, so i was so happy to be accompanied by my sweet daughter on this sunny Sunday! I did not expect to take the Ferrari, but because of the above, i had to :)

    Now, a full shopping kart with 1 propane bottle and 1 large water bottle + juices, soft drinks, rib rack, steak meat, chicken, etc... Honestly i was not sure they would all fit in the trunk... it did!
    To top it all, and as i was driving to go back home, i noticed my daughter had planned an ice cream delight for the cruise back... she forgot the spoon though!!! luckily it all went ok...

    Can you beat that?
    :)

    This is what happened on a recent unexpected trip to Costco.


    PS. The boot was filled to the max

    I also drive my 355 anywhere...grocery shopping, mall, Home Depot, etc. She is WAY too pretty to leave at home on a sunny day. You'd be surprised how much stuff will fit into a 355's boot!

    :D

    I've made runs for groceries on several occasions. Also have taken soda bottles back for deposit... pretty funny emptying the trunk of a bunch of empties.
    I do a little home brewing and have on several occasions gotten supplies in my car as well; just this weekend the trunk was full of malt, hops, and a CO2 tank! :)

    When I was vacationing in Malibu for a month, I went at least twice a week with the 360 to Trancas market (GREAT little market, BTW, and their Tri Tip sandwich is to die for) for grocery-getting. There, it didn't seem to garner a second glance as a grocery-getter!

    Guys is this really news? I use the ferrari to go grocery shopping whenever I feel like it.. toss whatever I want in the trunk or seat next to me.. I'm sure a lot of other people do that also

    Well I have to say that the food surpassed our expectations and our family had a great time.

    The only downside is now after seeing the pictures, my 7yr old daughter wants to eat ice cream in my Ferrari. Yikes!
