    ...mainly because I achieved mine this month having acquired a shiny red 355 GTS, my first Ferrari.
    A big hello to everyone and thanks to Darren at Clackett Lane services who told me about this board.
    Is it morally correct to have more than one life's ambition and if so how can I possibly aspire to something that's better than this? Well I'm stuck for ideas

    Graham,

    Welcome to Ferrarichat.

    Congrats on the new car, and we hope to see you at a driveout soon. I notice that you are not far from me, so doubtless our path shall at some time cross. The Kent FOC are meeting up at the Lion this Thursday and most of us are Fchatters. PM me if you are interested.

    My lifes ambition list is currently running at around 20, so either more than one ambition is fine, or I am morally bankrupt! You next ambition could be you second Ferrari.....

    Regards

    I've always thought that the next step up from having a F-car or similar is to have your own helicopter or plane.

    Get saving!

    I think it's the other way around - owning a plane is cheaper than owning an F-car.

    Disclaimer: when I mean plane, I mean a small aircraft such as a little cessna or a piper. For helicopters, an R22 or something. Not a lear or a jetranger :)

    The reason that Ferraris are so badly represented up north is that there is not enough space for your whippet if you are carrying a passenger, and I believe the RSPCA have outlawed "whippet-racks" beacuse the poor things were getting a tad warm when positioned over the engine.

    Granted, the reduced headroom does suit the flat-cap-style head adornment, but one can only shiver whilst contemplating the damage that can be inflicted on the delicate headlining of an exotic Italian thourougbred.

    .......Oh, I love stereotyping.....bracing myself for impact......let the flames begin........

    I must remember to tackle you about your Coronation Street fixation when I see you at the Lion on Thursday...bearing in mind that I am originally from Burnley:)

    Steve, sorry, Mauler,

    Can you get a kevlar and nomex, heat-resistant flat cap, because surely they would let you on track with that? LOL!

    Actually, in my 308 there is just enough space to carry a couple of anaesthetised whippets. Maybe this will help....

    Also, I hear that Tubi make an adapter to go on top of your sports exhast that is just right for keeping your black pud warm on your way down to Stanford Hall.

    Surely the next step up from owning an F-car is to own 2 F-cars?
