    Went to a frends house today and another of his mates was there in an F50. I was there in my 355 spider, my frend has got a 360 coupe (ex footballers car) .Anyway the F50 was the open top type and the same colour as my spider which is Barchetta red. The guy (wayne) is a cool guy and we got on great,he took me out for a blast on the other side of matlock in derbyshire, then he pulled over in a lay by and let me drive, F**King fantastic. I was a bit nervey becourse its a left hooker and the oncomming trafic seemed awfuly close to the passanger side. There are some good straights on our route where i could let go somewhat. GOD! i neeeed one.We are going to meet up next weekend all of us for a run out so i had better fit the NOs LOL! A few hourse latter i jumpt back in my 355 spider and did not feel good about it at all, my mind was else were. Saw alot of f cars to day on the road but the f50 eclipses all. I will take pics next weekend and post em. Oh yea the has two other Ferraris 360 spider and Dino.

    Glad you got to have this experience chaa - though it may have spoiled you a bit if you don't love your 355 right back, aye?

    Congratulations on the ride Chaa. What color was it? I had a chance to check out a black one last year and it was one sweet ride. I'm sure it was a weird feeling stepping back in the 355. On a side note that bike you posted is sweet! Post pics of the F50 when you get a chance.
