Ferrari's & kids are practical...!!

Evening all,
Found a well priced bottle of red wine in the local shops, so just popped out to pick up a case. Turns out that you can fit exactly half a case of wine behind each seat in a 360. Coincidence - I think not. Those Italian designers are just as practical as the Germans!

I also found out that a Fisher Price children's trolly holds exactly 4 bottles of wine. Another coincidence - I think not....

Thanks for the nice comments guys.... And to answer your Q, I had 4 cases of beer (so 96 bottles) in the front, plus a case of white wine. 12 red behind the 2 seats and a plastic shpping trolley in the passenger footwell, and owner of said trolly in the seat beside me. Just like it was designed for it.

Nice one Barry
Your daughter is beautiful, but I think she is a bit too young to be starting on wine, so make sure you enjoy it yourself

Nice pic Wetpet - your kids look great (not to mention the car!). And feel free to lash out the Irish drinking jokes (we're all secretly proud of our drinking abilities here...)

I agree, however I found out last weekend that in Holland it is still frowned upon to do your groceries in a Ferrari.

By the way, if the passenger seat is empty, you can easily fit a crate of beer (24 bottles) in front of the seat

I've got an 18 year old daughter that could care less that I own a Ferrari (She's a Jeep person) and more tragically a 16 year old son that won't be see with it (he thinks its to pretentious).

Either way...its mine and they don't even want to drive it. Thank God, because the booby traps I have set up would really hurt them. Think Rambo with pungee sticks.
