    Well, I will keep this brief so I can get out there and drive, BUT there is but another new Ferrari owner in the Ferrari Driving Club! The “Yellow Hottie” has a new Master in the 909. I was proud to take delivery of one “yellow hottie”, a 1995 355 Berlinetta, formally Jeffrey’s car, last night. My first Ferrari! Let me just briefly say it is a TOTALLY different experience from my NSX, which unfortunately is now in sport scar heaven :( I will certainly update my experiences and comparisons. Anyways, Jeffery certainly took immaculate care of this car while in his possession; it literally looks like it rolled off the showroom floor. Many thanks to Jeffrey for all his help; he is certainly a class act! I have included some pictures of the momentous day, and we’ll see you at the FDC events!

    Hey Patrick! You baggin' on my H2? :) It's a little blinged out but not bad. I think the stock H2 looks boring and the wheels are not aggressive enough. Had to give it some pizazz - some bigger wheels, a little chrome treatment, etc. Here's a better shot.

    I was at a dealership yesterday - They had an H2 for sale for $95K!! Crazy how much extra stuff they can put on it to get that price up.

    I was just about to sign up but my parents reminded me that they are going to be out of town on vacation over that date. For safety reasons (just incase anything happened) I would rather have them home while Im on the track. Great price though, so as long as there is no conflict over the next date, I will be there!!

    Thank you all for the kind words!! I just knew I had to jump as fast as I could on this car when I first saw it on Ferrariads, and even that wasn't quick enough, however, everything seemed to fall into place for me. Thanks Byron for the additional prodding. I am loving every minute of it so far. Like I have heard others say before, no matter what goes wrong, all it takes is the sound of a 355 with a Tubi and pipes (or any Ferrari for that matter) to make those problems go away. "Mechanical Prozac" I guess !!??

    Thanks again to Jeffrey, and for all your kind words.

    -Kevin
