    Spur of the moment. We were talking about a new car for her after she wrecked the front bumper on the Mercedes again. Luc fixed it excellent but I am getting tired of it. So she said she likes the Maserati Coupe. Silver or light blue. I went online and BANG there it was.

    Special Thanks to my friend Benn at Shelton. He made a contact to Shelton's Maserati division and I got a confirmation that I had a great deal on my hands. It was a close decision between this one that I bought and their car. Benn and the boys will get all the service biz for sure.

    Now I have to get the car transported down from texas to Miami. ...Road Trip ???? :)

    If you plan a long road trip in the Maserati, dont take too much. They have about enough room in the "trunk" for a lunch box and canteen. No way the trip to Sebring this year would have been possible with two people.

    If Marion needs any lessons on the paddle shifters, I'd be willing to help.

    No Tubi,
    I wanted to get her in a Ferrari but she insisted on something quiet.
    You know her, she is always on the phone so the stereo system is just wasted on her. 6-disc changer in the Mercedes has never seen more than one CD and that is the one that we have in there since she bought the car. You think I am kidding? I am not.

    Bart, the Coupe has 2 rear seats so there is a little more space than in the Spider.

    I am afraid she will try to drive that thing in Automatic only. One hand on the phone the other on her Starbucks Coffee, how do you shift?
    She actually needs a LImo and a driver. That would make life easy for her. But she does not want to go for that either.

    Dale,
    Thanks but the car is in Austin and Pensacola will not help that much. I guess I will start calling transport Cos tomorrow.

    Anybody any idea on open carrier?

    Paulie, you've got to get the Quattroporte for the Mrs. She'd look too cute
    driving around Jupiter (we all know it would never actually leave Jupiter) in a nice Quattroporte which are scheduled to arrive this week from what I hear.

    The Quattroporte costs a lot less than compairitively equipped Mercedes-Benz and BMWs, so I suggest it for Mrs. Paulie.

    I visited The Collection Friday and they've got a nice selection of Maseratis, beautiful blue Coupe just like the one that crashed at Sebring back in April and a nice silver Spyder on the showroom floor.

    I suppose we get to see the Silver Coupe at the Brazilian Grand Prix viewing party at the house in a few week's time. Maybe we can do laps around the neighborhood in it during the commericals. Heh heh.

    The Maser will be here Thursday.
    Mr. Peck from Lambo Dallas is picking it up and will bring the car here.
    Marion is coming back from Washington DC tomorrow and I have to find a buyer for her Mercedes now.

    In case anybody is interested:
    1999 MB 430CLK AMG quartz blue met over gray leather, lowered otherwise stock. 6-disc changer, 55K Miles I will have to get another service done.
    $25,000.

    Martin,

    congratulations on the new Masserati. I think you will find the car to be great on long trips as well as short track events. Bring it by for us to see.

    Regards,

    Will @ Shelton

    Hi Will:
    glad to see you posting. :)
    Track events I don't know...have been driving one in Homestead once and was not impressed at all. Too much body roll, but then it is a Touring car not a race car :). Saw the Race Maser in Homestead. They did pretty well in Grand Am. Car was screaming. Looked like a lot of fun. Bring one to Sebring Saturday so I can hitch a ride :)

    As far as me bringing the car by....if she lets me drive it LOL

    Car came in without a scratch. Thanks to Mr. Peck from Lamborghini Dallas and his trucking company. Excellent job. In the fastest time one can possibly imagine. Pick up Monday afternoon, delivery Wednesday noon. Austin to Miami.

    BMW Austin, Aaron Smith, also a big thank you. Perfectly as described. If anybody in that area is looking for a BMW give him a shout. Tell him Martin from Miami sent you.

    Marion is loving the car. The color is extreme silver. Close to white almost. She could not get enough. Front spoiler is higher so she is happy (I am too).
