    No Murci yet, but yes, a few Gallardos and the Ferrari. And not really a farmer, just a few horses in the barn.

    Red 355 with the engine and tranny out. Today at Ed's shop. A truly sad sight, but I'm sure Ed's boys will fix her up eventually.

    Emperor, pls keep an eye out for my half breed.

    The owner of the 355 is still trying to come up with the money to pay for the repairs. I think just recently, they came up with enough funds to cover most of the parts.

    I saw the 'half-breed' when I got there there this evening; I didn't know it was coming in.

    Put it inside for you so it's out of the elements. :)

    It's funny how curvy those streets are given that the Romans built most of them who normally go directly from point A to point B.

    When I visited Tuscany I saw Ferraris only in the big cities, not in the country side.

    Thank you Skip!

    Are you asking yourself a question?

    Now that's a bit strange. If not to say a bit absent minded...:)

    I saw a Lotus Elise on my way today. Not a lot of people would take their exotics out today because of the rain. :(

    That isn't so bad.

    However, when one asks a question and gives an answer then responds with huh? Now that is a good one!

    You could take it to our VA event on the 30th. It'll be my honor to hand you its first "trophy": Every participating Ferrari gets a commemorative plaque.
