    It should be arriving next week!!

    2000 550 Maranello with lots of cool options, fresh tires and a very comprehensive major service just competed three weeks ago by the dealer.

    Titanium/Black, 575- 19" modular wheels, red brake calipers, fender shields, Tubi exhaust, 250gt quilted leather luggage shelf, CD changer, stoneguard and more! Fantastic condition car.

    THANK YOU Sean Harris at "Steve Harris Imports" in Salt Lake City and a big thanks to Roy Cats at Cats Exotics for all his help too.

    If it is Rome's, I drove that car and it was a very nice ride!! I was duly impressed with how nimble and responsive the car was. The 575 modular wheels really add a nice touch. ;)

    Texas!
    Enjoy. I suspect that you will find your 550 to be more fun than the boxer; assuming you like to drive, which I assume you do.

    Imagine. The whim strikes and you say, "Let's go!" None of this, well, I gotta worry about this, I gotta worry about that. Just drive, dammit.

    PS It is a torque slut, eh?

    Nice car, wonderful color combination!
    Roy found you a great one, hats off to Cats Exotics "Power Search" that can locate most any car available.

    When Gary buys a new car for his birthday (this Friday), he really goes all out!

    Thank you everyone for all the very nice comments!

    Yes, Rome was the previous owner.

    We talked about the car, he said I should buy it, so I DID!

    Don't have a ship date yet (should know tomorrow), but I imagine it will head out before the weekend and arrive here sometime next week.

    Great pickup
    My 575 was one of my favorites. The torque and stability at high speeds was just really cool. It purred at 150
