    Well, then I guess you saw it (naked) at Cavallino in Palm Beach/FL, a few yrs ago.
    Paul Russell's Gullwing Corp in Essex/MA did that one too for RL.

    How does one own that many cars and keep them running? Does he employ a staff to exercise the cars? Can I apply for that position?

    RL does NOT own an Enzo. he doesn't like it.
    Also, as said before, the 288 GTO and the F50 were sold in Summer 2003 already.

    Nice cars. Too bad they have been collected in bulk and over-restored. I bet RL hasn't himself changed the oil on a single for many years. It's kind of like the fashion industry - Pebble Beach is merely "the New Balck" before they move on to something else.

    It will be interesting to see who publically agrees with that.
    I'll be the first.

    Hey, he's a high-profile collector and people here are free to state their opinions. I, for one, would be curious to see how RL would respond to that comment.

    "You never pay too much, you are just buying too early..."

    I believe he was the one to make this statement....

    He went into them, obviously with a long "buy and hold' viewpoint....and chose very wisely, based upon both aesthetics and history........like sculptures!

    The guy who said that was the guy who paid $25 for Manhattan. For a while he turned out to be right but as money doubles every 14 years at simple interest he's now and forever quite wrong.

    LOL!

    Quite right, you can go "too long"............

    If it's art, you'd better look at it! If it's a machine, you'd better use it!

    People sometimes get the two confused. Or maybe, it's that the machines that get reclassified!

    Cheers!

    While owning them has got to be great, definetly agreed that not being involved with them, or at least putting them to use (beyond looking at them) is a shame. Nevertheless, one can't argue it's a grea way to blow 100MM

    SHAME on all of you, From what I hear he does drive them, and rents out the track. He was very good Friends with Donna Karans late Husband Stephen Weiss, and would rent out race tracks for the day so he and his best friends would Romp on Ducatis.
    The man should be given a Humanitarian award for ferrari Preservation.
    I believe a book is due out this spring on the man and his cars.
    Jelousy makes a man say things he does not mean.
