    Alright guys, I've been patient long enough (3 weeks). My new girlfriend is being worked on by the Famous Tom Jones at Sport Auto. New clutch, belts, reseal gaskets, some radiator work, water pump rebuild, clutch mast. cylnd. rebuild; ect.. ect.

    Her name is Stella, she came from Texas. A great gentleman whose retiring and liquidating some of his other vehicles to enter retirement with a 612 reached out to me on here and we made it happen!

    Unique color, that I was skeptical of at first, but have fallen for. Tubi exhaust and 19' Novi wheels (I just need to do a resonator delete). Got the 98% bill from the mechanic today and he expects that by early next week she will be ready for me.

    My Dad partnered up with me this time after witnessing good choices with the previous two before her. It's funny, I've said this before; however, I feel she will stick around for a while.

    Never driven one, saw one once, never gave it much thought (like all the rest) - from what I hear, it's a real treat~!!!

    *Ordering shields soon and of course some proper floormats*

    Bought my 550 this past March from Steve at Sport Auto! You are going to love the car. Steve talked me into the Maranello as I had never driven one either. Trusted his judgement.......he was right! Great choice for me - hope you enjoy half as much as I have enjoyed mine so far!

    Looks great! What's the name of this color? It looks sort of greenish- but maybe that's just the photo.

    It's a beautiful car (one of Ferrari's best designs)...it would be sad to clutter up its lines by putting shields on it.

    Congratulations! The 550 is one of my favorites Ferraris. Beautiful color too. There's nothing wrong with being different as long as different doesn't mean weird and this certainly is not. Well done!
