    It's nice today so I got to drive the car to work. My spot is outside with the car plainly visible. I go out for lunch and notice someone left a business card under my car. It is from a Citi smith barney advisor. On the back hand written it says "You must be doing well for yourself. I would like to tell you about what I do for high net worth people. Give me a call". LOL. I wonder what he thought the car was worth? Maybe more than $100k?

    You have to love the attention :)

    I had a similar thing happen years back. I was pulling into the financial tower parking lot and saw a 355 parked by itself. Now you know how many times you park out in the sticks only to have a bunch of cars park around you. So, I figured it would be funny for the owner to come out and have another Ferrari parked next to in. So I parked right along side it. When I came back the owner of the 355 left HER card on my windshield. She worked for Metlife. I got a good chuckle out of that.

    One time an older Filipino guy pretended that my 348 was his! I think he was trying to impress me. :D

    I waited for about 15mins before I told him that I needed to get in the 348 so I could leave. Funny thing was, he gave me an attitude! Like I should've told him that I owned the car before he tried to impress me or something. Then he asked me (in a sarcastic tone) if I was a drug dealer or a son of a "Filipino Politician" (cause I was only about 22-24yrs old at the time) as an insult. I just told him that other Filipinos weren't posers like him and that he could go ahead and take photos of the car and pretend it was his to all his friends and relatives in the Philippines. :D

    My wife and I parked my car outside a vendors shop one day while she was taking a look around at some of the goods for sale. One of the vendors approached me after about 5 mins or so and said that he wasn't charging enough for his items. I asked why he thought so. He said that he just saw a Mercedes go by and that there was a Lamborghini parked across the road. I said, "I think that's a Ferrari". He said, "That's a $200k Lamborghini. Believe me, I know my cars". I grabbed my wife, got in the 355 and slowly drove away.
