    It may be philosophical, inspirational, reflective, race driven, ad related, sad but true, model specific, etc. Here is one of mine:

    When asked how he found the courage to climb into a race car each time, Tazio Nuvolari responded:

    "Tell me, do you think you will die in bed? You do? Then where do you find the courage to get into it every night?"

    "Speed doesn’t kill. It’s suddenly becoming stationary that does.” -Jeremy Clarkson

    "The object of life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, 'Holy ****, What a Ride!!!" - Mavis Leyrer


    That's all I've got. Top Gear has some good quotes about Ferraris. One is Jeremy Clarkson saying a 911 is a jacked up VW Beetle and the Ferrari is a scaled down version of.... God. I thought that was a little funny

    Understeer = hitting the wall with the front of the car..
    Oversteer = hitting the wall with the rear of the car..
    Horsepower = how fast you hit the wall..
    Torque = how much of the wall you take with you..

    Regarding whether the 917 had too much/enough power, something to the effect of :
    "Not until I can light the tires at the end of the Mulsanne......" - Mark Donohue

    That was my pick as well. According to IMDb, Raul Julia's actual quote was:

    "And now my friend, the first-a rule of Italian driving. What's-a behind me is not important."

    For the first 15 years of my marriage, I kept suggesting we buy a better vehicle. My wife would always say "If it's not a Ferrari, it's just a car"
