    Got mine last year when I was over 30 and less than 40. Never had a target age as it's simply down to circumstances and whether you want one at a time you can afford it (Financially, it's not some amazing achievement to own a Ferrari as you can get a turd of a 400i for under £10k these days (cost you same again to service it each year, but you can say you have a Ferrari).

    here here!

    My dream car since about 25 ish was a TVR, I decided, purely out of the blue to buy one as a 40th birthday present to myself, for no other reason than life's too short. Went down well with the wife, buying a 2 seater sports car 6 weeks before our daughter was born :D

    But then again, it was not one of our every day cars, purely a weekend extravagance.

    The Ferrari came about when i was looking to swap the Griff for a Tuscan, and I suddenly realised that I could afford it. So, i was 41 when i got my first Ferrari, but it was never a target as I had never considered owning one.

    Was quite a laugh having a V12 Daimler at 24 yrs old though :D

    Got our 348 a few weeks ago, I'm 42.
    I thought if i kept leaving it a 'little while' I'd be too old to get in one!!
    Just took me ages to justify spending the money on a 'weekend' play thing

    I had a Rolls royce at 20. Now that was really funny. Got stopped by the police for driving it whilst wearing a baseball cap!

    Thing was, I could;nt get comprehensive insurance and drove it third party, fire and theft.

    54, or 27 thats what I felt like when they unloaded this shining red car with yellow badges on the wings off the transporter outside my garage two years ago. I couldn't drive it for 12 days until 1st September, I was so glad to have achieved my dream I could have waited a month just as long as I could walk into the garage and look at it. Sad Bugger aren't I.

    Don't any of you call me old, still young enough to spank a few of youz young'uns around Silverstone on a good day even with stevep and stevef strapped on me back eating breakfast.

    Good though ain't it. You sound just like I was. I had a RED E type Jaguar when I was 18, a young copper ran half a mile to check my insurance £450-00 third party only, I could have bought a house for that almost, he asked me 10 times who the car belonged to, didn't understand the word ME.

    Only problem with owning an FCar - other peoples jealousy.
