    Subject says it all.
    I'm just curious.

    I would die to own a F355 before I'm 3.5!
    But I guess I just gotta work and save very hard.

    I WILL HAVE ONE!

    Use the search function in Off-topic for the "Who's the youngest ferrari owner here?" thread. There are probably 12 or more of these threads already, several in the past month. Look around and I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Bienvenue to the board.

    As a welcoming gesture, here's the thread I mentioned: http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5681

    Alex,

    YOu go for it, I bought my first F-car on my 2 days after my 26th birthday, I ma now 37 and have owned 11 defferent models and currently own 2 with a third on it's way.

    You don't have to start off with the Dream, in your case F355, Start smaller, (cheaper), and work your way up, gain experience both driving and buying before jumping in - head first !

    Good Luck & all the best,

    Steve

    Hey, great for you!! You have the right idea-- The main thing is to want one seriously enough & you WILL have one.
    It is wonderful & amazing how young so many first Ferrari owners are.
    Although it isn't a car for everyone, this does show that people with the passion for one will succeed.
    Just wait til you get to drive with a group of them. There isn't a whole lot you can do in public that gets your adrenalin flowing more (hence my license plate...)

    If he want's it? What kind fo healthy boy wouldn't want one?

    I am going to strive to own a Ferrari by 32. That's my goal. Of course, I may rent a few between the time I'm 25 and the time I actually own one, but that doesn't count.

    Nice to see that much replies :)
    I've rented a 328 GTS twice and since 2000 a F355 Spider every summer in august for a weekend. Always wonderful experiences of course :) !
    But indeed, that doesn't really count.

    Sometimes I think... I've already got the money for a Mondial QV or a 308, why not buy one??? But then again, I'm a bit afraid of the reliabelity and the age of these cars, maybe better to keep saving for a 328, 348 or my favorite ...the F355. Gotta have patience.
