    Today is the day that my journey to a 488 changed from Dream to Reality. I was one of us who always dreamed of owning a true Ferrari sports car. You know the one that had the poster of the three car garage with the Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari 348TS and the Humvee Hummer with the caption "Dreams."

    Well I started my journey at sixteen mowing lawns and saving money which led me to buy a white over red 1983 Mazda RX7 GS. Over the years the cars got a bit more horsepower and a bit more expensive. Over the last 6 years, I have moved from Maserati Gran Turismo MC to a Ferrari California T to now a Ferrari 488. All I can say is that the journey has been amazing and the destination did not at all disappoint. There is something to be said about fulfilling a life's dream. Time to enjoy and welcome to midlife!!!

    Congrats! But the 488 is not your final destination. It’s just a beautiful stopover on the journey of life and cars.

    Enjoy it to the fullest.
