    What Ferraris have you sat in that were not yours?

    I've sat in three Ferraris:

    a 348 (I think... I was about five at the time so I don't really remember)

    a 430 Spider (earlier this summer)

    a 430 Scuderia (two or three weeks ago)

    I went to an event at a local dealership once...parked my ferrari, but did not bother to lock the doors. I go inside, do my thing, nosh on some food, small talk.....when I come out....there are two guys sitting in my car. They get out, asking me questions, like it was fine to make themselves at home, sans permission.
    I let kids and dogs into the car, let friends drive it, but this is AFTER I invite them to sit in the car or check it out.
    Strange times and customs.

    a while back SVAG had a 550 Barchetta (not red, aqua blue I think) that was ab-so-lute-ly beautiful...

    the gentleman was happy to talk about it, but didn't want me to open the door.

    when my gf asked if she could sit in it, he agreed. :) being a beautiful young woman must be awesome.

    (having a beautiful young girlfriend is a close second though ;) )

    250 GT/L Berlinetta Lusso (multiple)
    330 GTC (multiple)
    365 GTC
    365 GTC/4 (multiple)
    365 GTB/4 Daytona (multiple)
