    Not me. A few friends who live in Sawgrass.

    This is me at TPC Stadium Course in Sawgrass. I remember walking over to the 17th after hours with a bag of range balls. I probably have ~500 balls in that water.

    4th Gen..... Thank you for sharing and you have my condolences. Your dad was quite the car guy. What an amazing group of cars that passed through his life. The fact that he drove and enjoyed these cars is fantastic.

    While his memory will live on in the stories and experiences you shared together, I appreciate you letting us have a glimpse of his life with cars. Thank you and best wishes.

    I disagree with this.

    I bought my ‘67 330 GT 2+2 when my son was born.

    You disagree with the infant seat or the bubble wrap? I'm certain they don't sell an infant seat but as far as bubble wrap, the original idea was to wrap the frunk in bubble wrap but the baby would have too much movement. With the help of famed architect, Daniel Libeskind, who built the Freedom Tower in NY, we've created blueprints that now encase the baby in ~ 7 layers of industrial strength bubble wrap, a few circles of racing tape, poke holes for air, insert straws, and voila'. The perfect infant transport system for Ferrari frunks. Patent pending. /s

    Baby seats.

    I had a Recaro in my 330. You can see it in the passenger seat.

    This thread has been fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Ferrari guys in Atlanta usually meetup the last Saturday of the month, at the shops of Buckhead. You should definitely come by. There are even a couple of us with young kids and can advise you on which car seats and and models work best.

    Your father didn’t mess around. What a collection. The best of the best in that era. Sounds like a man who lived life to the fullest with no regrets. We should all be so lucky. Wonderful tribute to your dad.

    That's a question best answered by Marcel. I am uncertain whether my father owned that car.

    What incredible pictures. It reminds one of a bygone era, things were much more simple. To have been privy to such incredible cars and a neat Dad must have made for a wonderful childhood. Thanks so much for sharing such pieces of history with us, it's very much appreciated.
