    I just noticed that the clutch pedal appears to be absent in the interior photo of the 288. Is this some sort of VALEO conversion?

    Joke or not, I believe that in 100 years or so the 288 GTO will be considered the best looking Ferrari of all time.

    My wife keeps telling me she bought a new car today too. Of course i don't believe it, but still, she's nearly as crazy as me which makes these kinds of things too hard to decipher anymore. And I know for sure she was at the dealer because her car had some scheduled maintenance. Hmmm.

    Wow... that's awesome! I. too became an owner today. I'd never seen a 430 in Lamborghini Verde Ithaca, but I just had to have it...
    See you all in Cannon Beach! ;)
