One week later.

hi! guys, so today it completes one week of since i went to ferrari to get my first f-car , a 2009 California... and through out this week every time i start the car my smile rises .its amazing that when you sit and drive a ferrari , everything else on the road is no match to you. But the thing i was most impressed was the stability of the car. I was used to a aston db9 (very good car) but at 220km the ferrari feels like its going 140 and is always asking for more and when you see again your doing 240 and the police are on your back but all part of the experience ahahha. il leave you know with some pics , hope you enjoy!!!

Absolutely beautiful, very happy to hear that you are enjoying her!

I am currently Ferrari-less, posts like these make me want to go grab one ASAP, have to wait for this damn house refinance though to be done.... Grr.

I am truly envious of you right now my friend!

A nice collection in that parking lot, out of curiosity what type of establishment is that with the covered parking spaces.

Lovely 599..I like how it still very much resembles the old classic version..250 GT?

Where did you travel from in Portugal to holiday in Algarve?..I only ask because I spent time in the Alentejo region this year and drove 2300 km to explore different areas but spent most of the time driving to Tavira, Albufeira and Lagos..In that time I did not see a single Ferrari or any other supercar..just a new jaguar F type.

Steve- in algarve most the time i was in Quinta do Lago near Almancil ,and Vale do lobo. But i also when to Vilamoura to the marina. That is very weird that you didn't see a single Ferrari because in the summer you see everything (super cars) one point i saw a Cali (mine) , 458 spider, FF, F12 and a white cali all parked together side by side… Did you go in the summer?

Hi Sebastiao,

Nice shots of your california. You know how people say that you really miss something when it is gone? My old Cali was the same colour as yours. I blocked the valves and wow that car had a nice sound. I sold it to get my 16m but in retrospect the cali is such a versatile car. It is a true coupe and a true convertible, whereas the 16m is a true convertible and not a coupe. I wish I had unlimited garage space and the funds to match! Then that cali would be my daily drive!!!

Enjoy,

David.

Thanks cribbj ! I will.
I've been in Romania for a couple of weeks with my dad (business and stuff).
I'm from Rome and currently studying in Genova.

More pics of that Cali, Sebastiao
