    Family is asking what kind of "Ferrari stuff" I want for Xmas. I say that the real thing is good enough for me, but nobody wants to buy me that Enzo!. With a $50.00 limit....

    What really cool "F stuff" caught your eye this year!...

    www.exoticars.com has some cool stuff. Models, key chains, F1 steering wheels etc. They also have a 1/5 scale Enzo! 40 inches long. I saw it at Indy. Really cool! $3K..... I was looking for an F40 that big... No luck.

    I was going to buy that 1/5 Enzo until I saw it in person. It's pretty lackluster for a 1/5 $3k model. Even the Pocher 1/8 models can be had for less than 1/2 the price, and have twice as much detail complete with opening doors, hood, etc.

    Pocher went out of business though. You can still find Testarossa's and F40's on eBay, but that'll be all.

    I know (although the F40's are coming back I hear, new owners). I'm having a TR spyder (I have a new one) not only built, but 'upgraded' where it will have real leather interior, real metal wheels, etc. Essentially only the body/exterior and a few other things from the Pocher kit will be used.

    The matching 1/8 scale Schedoni luggage is cool too!

    But another example, the Tamiya Ferrari F-50 (1/12) has more details than the 1/5 Enzo. Here's wishing Kyosho, Tamiya or anyone else would issue an Enzo.

    I just picked up this awesome Ferrari six speed "shifter" paperweight at Bicaji's Model Collection in the Westfield Mall in Arcadia. It weighs a few pounds and is incredibly sturdy. It very closely resembles the real shifer of the F355 and other six speed transmission Ferraris. Price: $24.95

    This is the one Slag328 mentioned. It rocks and keeps me motivated until I buy my first F-car.

    Thanks for the link.

    FYI... I found www.************.com to be a good one as well.

    Anyone else found a link for a Quality Ferrari leather keychain? I found one for $100.00 ... online, but would like to see in person. Any recommendations for a so cal supplier?
