Somebody sent me this excerpt from a post made sometime ago (I'm not sure of the time frame). I read it with more than a bit of puzzlement. Was this posted on April 1st??????????? Referencing Ferraris, it reads: Just out of curiosity, was this posted as a joke or is the writer really serious? Where did this "30%" come from???????????????? Well, I maintain that "it IS all about driving the car" and "these cars were MEANT to be driven" and one may rest assured that I do indeed "have a clue". Furthermore, I own and have owned a fair number of Ferraris, ALL OF WHICH were everyday drivers. If you look at the total mileage I put on all of them, it's somewhere around 200,000. Tell me, instead of all that wonderful driving, should I have instead chosen a different path like "Ferrari ownership is about pursuing the car, learning about the car, getting the car up to a level that you want, meeting people, learning about who you like to deal with for repairs, enjoying F-Chat..." ? As I have all too often stated, "It's just a car". Also, regarding who I like to deal with for repairs, that's easy - ME. Nobody else has worked on any of my cars while I owned them. So, I'm really curious about this post and who posted it - I think it might make for some interesting discussion!!!!! Bob Z. ps - I have to run some errands tomorrow - just some general running around. Post office, some shopping at Walmart, some work at the church, maybe pick up some plants and a bag of potting soil, fill up a few gas containers, Good chance I'll use the GTC.
