    The Eye is awesome, the view you get from it is absolutely unique.

    hello,


    saturday afternoon saw a ruby red F599 GTB, rosso F430 spider, two quatroportes and the new maserati gran turismo all tucked safely inside the ferari-maserati park avenue showroom in mid-town manhattan, NYC. i know, post it in the new york thread. but i just wanted to say how beautiful the new maserati gran turismo is in person. i was wondering if somehow ferrari could swap the chassis and badges off their 612 and place them with the gran turismo (and vice versa) ;)

    Saturday was fine until noon.
    By the time I got home on the way from Downtown it was already snowing but not enough to upset the 599.

    Haven't been on 'The Eye', but a number of years ago I had the opportunity to visit the bellfry at Westminster Palace (yeah, I know someone). Now that was a rare opportunity, and a very rare view!

    These cars on snow tires are unstoppable, even in heavy snow fall...

    Sunday morning: About 100 Jeeps and Range Rovers escorted by police on LSD. Not quite sure whether that was a club meet (show offs!) or training for the volunteer snow shoveling brigade.

    Next year, plows and salt spreaders on the Ferraris!
