    My wife and I just picked up this awesome Ferrari six speed "shifter" paperweight at Bicaji's Model Collection in the Westfield Mall in Arcadia. It weighs a few pounds and is incredibly sturdy. It very closely resembles the real shifer of the F355 and other six speed transmission Ferraris.

    Jordan if you are reading this, pick one up. It will keep you focussed as you continue to work hard toward your first Ferrari purchase! Trust me, it's working for me!

    Price: $24.95

    Paper weight wont do for me Jay! I will have the real thing in my hands in 10 years...ish...:) Although, I think I will pick one up for the hell of it. Looks pretty cool!

    BTW, what happened to the black 355B at Ferrari of Orange County?

    My wife and I continue to save to purchase a private practice and some other businesses I am in negotiations with. Needless to say we anticipate that a F-car purchase is at least a year or two away. We are glad that we now both agree on a specific make, model and year. ie black 95-99 F355 Berlinetta Six Speed. My street rod will likely be shipped down here early in the new year so I am hoping to meet up with some F-car owners at some of the Crystal Cove events. Once it is sold, we will be in a better position to buy a business. I eagerly await the day when I can park one in my garage. Have had lots of different cars, but never a Ferrari!

    Yes, I found it using the search engine on exoticar.com. Keyword "paperweight". On this website they want $34.95! Here is a photo from their website.

    Hey looks pretty cool. Too bad I don't have many papers to way down. Oh well, looks just as good without any papers under it :).
