Happy New Year Tifosi

Since 1975, my New Year's tradition when in the states has been to start the year with a drive with the top down. Being in California, that was never a problem. The forecast is for clear weather, so tomorrow will be my 31st New Year's drive.

I hope everyone has a memorable drive this coming year.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Had a chance to drive mine even in cold Switzerland but roads were quite dry yesterday! It was a pure pleasure to drive her on the 31st with a rear that was very twisty in the turns.

Happy New Year to all my friends here and there families!

Happy New Year everyone to you and your families. Admiral, I trust you are enjoying NM?

I'm going to celebrate now by taking both the TR and 360 out for some exercise.

On Jan 1, 2014 it's sunny, relatively mild, no snow or salt on the roads (thanks Santa!)
