    I have wanted a red Ferrari since I was 10. Joined Fchat in May 2004 and have been a regular reader since then learning all things Ferrari. Since joining Fchat have got married, had 2 kids, moved 4 times including an international move. The whole time working and planning to one day own the Ferrari I wanted. Not just the cheapest Ferrari I could buy to say I owned one, wanted to wait until I could get my true dream car. Just picked up a 2008 Scud with 7K miles in the spec I have been looking for. Love everything about it and happy finally as an owner! Look forward to adding miles and enjoying the car after the long wait! Have been chasing this so long feel a bit like the dog that his finally caught the car and does not know what do do once they finally catch it. :) Plan to drive the hell out of it and have fun. Shot with my daughter who is same age from when I first wanted a Ferrari and its new garage spot. Cheers!

    Wonderful - congratulations to probably one of the best days in your life! Very similar story for me, 6 months ago and after 30 years... Still feel that mix of smiling and tears of joy and relief. It's people like you who make Ferrari what it is and keep the spirit alive.

    Great choice of car - IMO one of the best to combine everything a V8 Ferrari stands for long-term.

    Congrats! You have been on here longer than me, and that seems like a lifetime ago when I joined. Great car, and incredible patience to keep your eye on the prize! Glad you are intent on enjoying the car as it was designed for.

    Thanks, felt the same way! I have always loved the Scud. Could have bought a newer turbo Fcar but like the old school raw feeling of the Scud. Get my turbo fix from my Japanese cars :)

    My neighbor has 2 boys around 10-12 age. On delivery day I heard both of the scream from the 2nd story next door, "HE BOUGHT A FERRARI!!!!" Plan on taking them for a ride once the weather gets better.

    Thanks! R32 has 620 WHP so a lot of fun to drive and keeps me with at least one 3 pedal car. Really different cars but love both!

    And that’s the whole point of having more than one car. They each have their own characteristics to love.

    Congratulations on not one, but two great choices. Enjoy!!

    Congratulations! The Scud is gorgeous. Awesome choice for your first Ferrari. Be sure to join the local chapter of FCA. It hosts several events each year which should increase when the coming dealership finally opens. The chapter President is Tanner Mashburn. He can be contacted through Carlock Motros.
