    This thread is to show of Jeffrey's stunningly beautiful and dazzlingly spectacular F355. The pictures probably don't do the car justice, but sitting 350 miles away from the car, this is lustful enough for me.

    *apologies in advance if anyone is offended by this thread*

    I have included the pics that I have saved of his car. Please feel free to continue this thread and post as many pics of Jeffrey's car as possible. Keep the pics coming.

    You guys are killing me!! Trust me - I do not mind but other F-chatters are going to be so sick of seeing this car that they're going to roll their eyes when I drive up at an event! Add to that the fact that no one will ever buy a yellow 355 ever again because they're so sick of YELLOW!!

    Sorry Byron, Jordan, Armen, Jeremy, Scott, Tony, Edward, etc. ... I didn't start this! Blame Ryan, David, and Jay! Ha ha! Pssst guys ... I'll pay you later! :)

    I hope no one minds, that is why I put the advanced apology in there ;)

    Are you kidding, yellow is the best color! Exotics should have exotic color, unless you are an accountant (just kidding Jerry :D )

    You guys can all blame me. Hey I have no other vices. I don't drink or smoke, and don't womanize. I need to lust after something right?

    Jeffrey, you don't have to pay me, just more pics of your car will be enough.

    Too late for apologies. :)

    Just noticed I have that same Mercedes/Fangio GP poster hung in the middle in the garage. Huge one just like that hanging over my bed.

    The last pic posted is great. Catches a nice angle. Lovely machine!

    I had nothing to do with it...I mean it ;)

    I hope no one is seriously offended that was not our intention. Besides, no one can get sick of looking at a Ferrari, even if it is yellow (which is a very nice color).

    Well I think the Maranello being more of a gentleman's Ferrari, the yellow is probably harder to sell. People like the 550/575/456 in more subtle colors it seems.

    However to me, I willl take them ALL in yellow only please :D

    Throttleman--thank you for the pics! Can't wait to see more. It is like an addiction! I love that last picture from Italy, just understated beauty.

    Anyone know why the car had no tint, then had tint, and then the tint was removed again?

    Hey Ryan. Don't listen to Jay. He is feeding you a line about following me everywhere. The only time my car was in Italy was when it was first born. Since I am the second owner - I wasn't there. The original owner put the tint on the windows which I thought was tacky. I left it on for as long as I could stand it because I thought it would help protect the leather from sun exposure - hence shrinkage. Finally, I had enough. It was a mediocre job and didn't look that great so I decided to simply remove it.

    What the heck - I guess if you can't beat 'em you join 'em. I'm just going to add fuel to the fire at this point. For you Ryan, David, Jay et al ...

    Consequently, I had the car lowered after the Axis wheels were installed. One great thing about the 355 (not sure if it is the same on all Ferraris) is the adjustable coil over suspension. Just jack the car up and get the tools out and you can raise or lower the car in your driveway.
