    It amazes me how i can go to New Orleans and see just short of a 100 Ferraris, including two NNOs, The Breadvan, 0808, 333 SPs and a whole gaggle of other awesome cars but i still freak out when i see just ONE on the road...

    It's like a panic attack with a smile... LOL, i'm breathing heavy just thinking about it... i LOVE these cars...!!!

    So, i took my lunch break and not even 5 minutes after i've left the office, a yellow 348 Spider pulls out of the local gas station. Goes down a few blocks and pulls into a bank parking lot... i was beeping and waving and taking pictures and just flipping out in general... It's so awesome to see these cars on the road, "in the wild"... So rare to see one here in town, and as early as February, no less... Pennsylvania tags on this beauty; anyone here...?

    Today when I was driving there was a very nice blue Maserati Coupe in front of me. Geez that car is really nice and the engine makes a really nice noise. (I opened my window to listen :) )

    Abso-friggin'-lutely...!!! Right in the console, below my right arm... Equipped with Wellington lithium batteries, so i can sit there, camera on, and wait - minutes sometimes - for the right shot and never have to worry about the batteries dying at the wrong moment... Lithiums laaaaaaaaast...

    Me too... There's no song that's too melodic to turn off and no wind too cold to keep me from rolling down the window... That baby hummed something sweet... i LOVE seeing Ferraris on the road...!

    The wheels on the yellow 348 are on backwards.

    So Gus,
    Did the owner of the 328 pushed it? pulled it? or dragged it to the lot?


    Just kidding of course.
    Can't wait for the weather to improve so we can all go have some fun.

    I'm the same way! Even after the whole New Orleans thing it's like the world stops if I get to catch a glimpse of one.

    You guys need to spend a week in Scottsdale. You'd be on mega doses of Ritalin to calm yourselves down!

    Wax - i kinda figured he was running away from me...! :)


    Gus, who brought that hunk of crap in...? They didn't try to get any money on it, did they...? :)


    Kenster, nice catch...


    Rob, what else could i do but take pictures...? i was so excited, i almost got out of the car, but that probably would've concerned the driver...


    Alex, i hear Beverly Hills is the same way...

    Hey Carbon, it's 2 blocks from my old house. You want to see a garage. I cried when I moved. Turn around, go east. At the corner where there is a 7-11 and the Apts. make a left. Go to the end of that short block. At the end where you have to make a left or a right, make a right. Go 1 block and make a left on Cottonwood Dr. Go down to 23 and look up the driveway. Man do I miss that garage.

    You can absolutely guarantee i'll be going there to check it out when i'm back in NY... A mere few blocks from where you just mentioned (Blue Spruce Lane) lives a gentleman with a red Testarossa... Saw it for the first time last summer... Never had a chance to speak with the guy; too nervous to approach someone in that situation... i hope to see it more when the weather gets better... It's got the high mirrors on BOTH sides and after market wheels... Saw it in the rain one Friday night and almost had convulsions... Was nice to see someone actually driving it in the rain...

    I will keep you hanging a little bit but lets just say there is nothing in the neighborhood like it. NOTHING.

    I thought that might not come across clearly. I'm talking about the garage itself. It's pretty BIG.

    What did you think I was saying. I have no idea whats in it now. I think the guy who bought the house said he had a Dodge Superbee and maybe an AMX. But who knows.

    I usually have 3 Ferraris 'living' with me....I'm down to two right now. I swear everytime I open my garage I have every teenage boy within 5 miles at my house! All good fun....as I love to share.

    It's always rather funny to see the little ricers lurking about...not saying a word....but once they realize that I'm friendly...they are firmly attatched to my garage.

    Sometimes it's a bit disconcerting when a car pulls up next to you or behind you and starts snapping pics! But it's all part of the fun.

    Enthusiasm is alive and well in arizona!

    Ciao
