    Last weekend, while staying at the Wellington Chateau, Bruce took "the beast" out for a short run to stretch its legs. When he came back, he popped his head in the door and said, "She's all yours..."

    Oh, man...!

    Outside i went, hands in gloves, to see this yellow beast sitting there, waiting for me. A low rumble at idle and an open driver's side door were more invitation than needed.

    "You comin'...?" i asked.

    "Nah, YOU go..." Bruce is the MAN!

    Off i went, shifting into the afternoon, making my way to the local scenic route of choice. i didn't aim for any record speeds, rather this was just a nice cruise. The acceleration in this car never fails to amaze me. i am so in love with the Testarossa. The look, the feel, the power, the sound, it's all so lustful. It always leaves me saturated with everything a Ferrari is and the smile takes days before it fades. After a nice ride, i u-turned and made my way home. Honking at the few people who actually look at the car is always a pleasure. Kids love it. Who wouldn't...? It's a Ferrari. :)

    Coming up the main road, there's a 90 degree right turn to enter the development. i came up on it, braking enough that i could round the corner; i was moving slow enough so i shifted into first, dipped the throttle, released the clutch and hit the gas, making the ass end come out. As i turned into it, the ass wiggled back into place as i rumbled down the road, towards Bruce's house. Damn, i love that car.

    Thanks, Bruce. :)


    Here's a picture of it from the party he had back in August.

    Carb, Bruce, Your both bad a$$es. I love the style of the TR so much more than the 550/575.

    I meant hanging the tail out...when you haven't had tons of seat time, it might be the makings of an accident...especially at this time of year, salt sand etc...

    Speed was very low, have driven that car more times than all the other Ferraris i've driven, COMBINED, and there was minimal salt and sand where i did it...

    ...but i hear what you're saying. :)

    When I saw the subject line on this thread (along with it coming from NNO/DES, all I could think of was that this had to refer to Bruces yellow TR)

    That is truly gorgeous. NNO, you're a lucky man.

    Bruce, can I be your friend too ?

    That is so cool DES. I envy you. I honestly fantisize about winning the lottery and mailing you a car anonymously. What fun it would be to see your posts the day after...asking who it was etc. That is the real reason to have money..to be able to give others joy!


    I was in Philly all week for work (Vanguard Mutual Funds), but no time to venture up to NJ/NYC. Pretty decent weather actually...just cold...but clear and sunny!

    Jim, that's awesome...! If i ever get an anonymous car in the mail, you'll be my first suspect... :)

    You should've told us you were in Philly... It's not that far from Bruce's house and that's where i was last weekend anyway... We could've met up, slapped it around, popped on off- you know, the Jersey way... :)
