    Twice now, cars have followed me home. Both times, they were people who have a Ferrari or wished they did.

    Happened to me a few times. But they're young kids who must have been cruising around.

    Yes, a few times but i NEVER drive home when someone is following me. Instead, i pass my street and pull into a nearby gas station. Am ALWAYS glad to show them the car, yet DO NOT like others to follow me to see where i live.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Never been the follower unless it was someone wanting something that I was more than happy to deliver. But I have been the Follower of Ferraris. Some 360s. some 550s and some 355s. Theyve always been really nice and never acted like a was some physco stalker...(which technically i guees I was. But I mean were talking about Ferraris here...my precious.)

    Stevens got a good point though, the marines use to tell us never go home if someone is following you, it could be a terrorist or someone that has something against you. Just always keep a weapon in the car. Thats my advice.

    I raced a guy from the airport {25 mins.} a few years ago to his doorstep. We have been friends ever since.

    I have had people follow me for some distance...which does not bother me. But, when I am close to home I drive fast enough through the last leg that makes following me almost impossible ;)

    I've been followed. I make a point of not going to my house at that time. Of course, anyone with $25 can use a license plate lookup to determine my address, but I'm still not going to invite trouble.

    well one guy. I did not see him until I got out of my car in my garage and hadflashing lights in my driveway. Poor guy complained I was going way too fast and he was following me for a mile or so.

    Hm, I did not get a ticket and he loved the car. We ended up talking car for a while. He came by every now and then when I was outside washing the car.

    :)

    But then Bart, I do not have your looks, neither such a cute daughter :)

    bizmarkie said it best:

    "Let me tell ya a story of my situation
    I was talkin' to this girl from the U.S. nation
    The way that I met her was on tour at a concert
    She had long hair and a short miniskirt

    I just got onstage drippin', pourin' with sweat
    I was walkin' through the crowd and gues who I met
    I whispered in her ear, "Come to the picture booth
    So I can ask you some questions to see if you are a hundred proof"

    I asked her her name, she said blah-blah-blah
    She had 9/10 pants and a very big bra
    I took a couple of flicks and she was enthused
    I said, "How do you like the show?"
    She said, "I was very amused"

    I started throwin' bass, she started throwin' back mid-range
    But when she sprung the question, I acted kind of strange
    Then when she asked, "Do ya have a women," i tried to pretend
    I said, "No I don't, I only have a friend"
    Come on, she even went for it
    This is what I'm goin' sing

    You, you got what I need and I say she's just a friend
    And I say she's just a friend, oh baby
    You, you got what I need and I say she's just a friend
    And I say she's just a friend, oh baby
    You, you got what I need and I say she's just a friend
    And I say she's just a friend..."


    At least that's my story and i'm sticking to it :D

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Steven R. Rochlin

    yep , i must be paranoid........ if they are in a ferrari they may be just a enthusiast. or the car is stolen and they want yours too. geeze i have been followed in my lowly ( in ferrari terms ) muscle cars but either 1) i leave them in the dust. 2) if they have a fast car then i calmly "persuade" them to back off 3) i live next to the police station so i pull in there and see if they are curious, or i need to shoot them there on the spot since i am already at the jail. usually after (1) they are not a problem. ( i am always nice and polite unless i feel i am in danger). i knew someone who was followed in his car and killed over the wheels on it. killers could not find the key to the wheel locks and got caught. sometimes its better to be paranoid. have a nice day!

    Better solution:
    9mm. He won't be able to follow anyone anymore!

    Hes got the idea. Like I said just keep a weapon, Id prefer somethign more than a 9mm perhaps a hand cannon like a .44 or Desert Eagle .50. No ones moving after that.
