    Hopefully I spend a lot of money and get a "new to me" f-car!

    Good luck. You may not have known this, but I think you are a fine human being, despite what everybody else says about you.

    Well, I bought it. :)

    Should be shipping next week. It will be out of state for a few months before I can bring my baby home.

    Neither of the prior owners drove it much - They would just flatbed it to Shelton Ferrari for service. The car has had both the 15K and 30K service done, but only has 2,600 miles! It really shows also - Every part of the car looks brand new - It drove so nice. I felt like I was back in 1988 driving it off the showroom floor.

    Here are some pics I got from the prior owner.

    Jerry,

    Let me be the first to congratulate you (on this thread) ! :) I am really happy for you. Glad that all worked out and you are proud owner of another Blue car :D Car is stunning as I previously mentioned and I wish nothing but luck with and many miles of driving in good health. I hope you win a concours or two with that!

    Lastly, I assume you are keeping it out to avoid the hefty sales tax. In the 90 days that you have to keep it out, I heard one needs proof that the car was out. Are you using a storage facility somewhere, or keeping some gas receipts from other states? I would be interested in knowing the details if you would care to oblige.

    Once again, fabulous addition to your garage. :)

    By the way, was the bubble included???

    LOL couldn't help it, sorry :D

    Congratulations Jerry. What a beautiful car. Can't wait to see it in person.

    Love that bubble. Would like to get one for my car (my garage is dusty as hell), but everytime I mention it to my wife, she looks at me like I'm out of my mind.

    Thanks!

    I'm having the car shipped to AZ. I don't know what proof the DMV needs, but I can provide them whatever is required.

    As silly as it looks, I would like the bubble also. :) I didn't get it with the car, but the owner gave me the receipt for it - I thought it would be more, but it looks like it was about $395 with shipping.

    You are welcome. I am not sure what proof they need, but I heard they want gas receipts or other proof to show that the car was actually in another state and not in CA.

    I assume you will be flying to AZ often now ;) :D

    Thanks!

    It would be concourse, but I would need to change a few things - For example, the bottom skirts have been painted blue (like the 512TR) instead of the original black. I think I would lose some points for that. There are also some other small exterior pieces that are blue that would have been originally black. I like it though, so I don't think I would change ti back just in order to concourse it though. I would also have to get rid the Ferrari valve caps! :)

    Jerry,
    OMG!!! A big weekend for both of us! (I got a car, too...hehe).
    Congratulations on your new car - it is absolutely beautiful. Kinda looks like a big brother (oops, sister) V12 version of your old one!! :)

    Can't wait to see the car... I'll meet you in Arizona. ;)

    Oh, I wouldn't want to point fingers at each and every so-called "friend" who's responded so nicely since you returned.

    Just kidding, F-peeps!

    However, I would like to coin a phrase/term/word which hadn't existed before, even on Google:

    Testachiaro
