May be bowing out, selling everything

Howdy folks
Have been around the Fcar scene only a few years and has been special in it's own way.
I am seriously considering dropping out and going back to a full retirement of world travels and adventure.

Never thought I would like cars again other then on a work level and I was correct but had to give it a last try.

Anyway not set in stone yet my final decision will be in a couple months

F cars for possible sale will include

1994 ts challenge, 1 of 13 made in yellow
1995 f355 challenge, gator gregs 2013 champ car
1997 f355 yellow spider

Just wanted to put this out there if anyone will be in the market
Please don't pm me asking how much when it's time they will all be listed

Thank you & peace

Sorry to hear that, but I understand. I'd be interested in the 355C, and the wheels from your spider.

Good on you for grabbing life's horns & taking that bull for a ride, its a big world out there, made smaller by travel & adventure is around every corner.

Silly, go for it, we're only here once & its just for a short time!

May health be with you on your travels!

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!

I wouldn't call it bowing out - more like stepping up!

Dibs on that Yellow 355

Thought about doing the same - but all those people I love making miserable every day ... it's irreplaceable

What about combining them: keep one of the Ferraris and travel around the world in it - that would be an adventure.

IMHO if you have never owned and driven a Ferrari twelve you've missed an important if not essential part of the Ferrari life experience. Swap one and a half of your F355's for a 550 Maranello.

just my 2c.

Like all large Ferrari's the 599 shrinks around you & some of us guys like the 599 style curves in our Supercars, whilst some like you prefer the 550 & 575 wedgier shapes.....this is why car guys across the generations like different models, Marques etc....it's too big in your opinion, in someone else's the 550 maybe too small.....it's all relative!

Of course you are perfectly correct, Peter, it is entirely a matter of opinion. Mine might be worth about as much as my 2c .............but it is mine

OTOH, consider that the wheelbase of the 599 is within 10mm or a half inch of that of the BMW E90 3 Series 4-door.

Yeah I think you know me well

last time I retired I ended up with several TV shows, # 2 rank bike builder in the world
developed hydrogen systems recently on bikes, may be out next year on big name brand a bakers dozen of ferrari's
and 2 dozen choppers.
Over a 10 year period LOL

I cant imagine what else I can do to occupy my time? I need a challenge oooops got 2 LOL

I tell you moving to Italy for a year to make cheese and prosciutto is HIGH on the list.

You can relate to the personality traits you have many of the same

Just remember one thing, Tim. Moderation. Every thing is good in moderation. And, dropping it all in one shot never works.

2+ years ago I lost 35 pounds and I did not eat pizzeria pizza for 2 year. Big mistake. I've gain 25 of the 35 I lost and I'm getting ready to drop it again. This time, I'm going to take 1 day a week or 1 every 2 weeks and eat whatever the hell I want. That will help the cravings...
