    Just found my old high-school folder in the attic!

    My parents were farmers when they left their hometown in Italy with only two suitcases looking for a better living to raise a family of 6 in Southern Germany. They worked hard their whole life, to make sure we will have it easier.
    Cars were always my passion and when I was 10years old I promised my dad that one day I‘ll pick him up in a Ferrari! He looked at me and said: Son, I know that I will never be able to afford a Ferrari, but if you will, it will make me very proud knowing that mom and I have met our goals!
    33years later, after marrying the love of my life and raising a family myself, I can proudly say that my parents did everything right!!
    Thank you mom and dad for making this possible! It’s not the F40 and it’s not red, but it’s mine! Work hard, play hard, but never forget where you’re coming from!

    Great story and congrats. That is a great looking car.

    Where are your parents from in Italy? My ancestry is Sicilian, both sides, with a v. small amount of Calabrian mixed in. Congrats again...T

    Thank you!
    They are from a little village in the mountains near Naples, called Calitri. Spent most of my childhood vacations there with my grandparents. As a boy it was boring as hell, but now I love going there. So much history

    Congrats! If I could go back and tell myself some thing, my younger self would be amazed. If you don't dream it, you're much less likely to get there.
