Your Ferrari Goodies

Thought I'd start a new thread on Ferrari goods that you have purchased and want to show off or let others see of interest. Could be anything, like caps, badges, T shirts, books, etc. Normally I do not buy such goods, but let me start out with this,...it is a collection of Ferrari badges mounted in a 40 x 55cm case w/ plexiglass covering. The cost was about US$2000. w/ smiles Jimmy

Well...I have an F430 hat, that I wear pretty much everyday. I have Ferrari by Puma driving shoes, of which I also wear pretty much everyday. The last are my F430 spider, a red Enzo, and a black Enzo. Total cost: ~$150, I think. Unbelievably, that is all I own from Ferrari besides my username on here

Well....to be honest, I have taken 3 years of Japanese previously. I haven't really studied it in 2 years so I thought it would be better to start in intro to Japanese 110....I was very wrong. I didn't forget very much so I am far more advanced than anyone in the class. In two weeks of school she has gone over: a, i, u, e, o, ka, ki, ku, ke, ko, sa, shi, su, se, so, ta, chi, tsu, te, in Hiragana, and how to introduce yourself and your neighbor... I should have taken the more advanced Japanese course. Katakana isn't even introduced in this class....and both books are in Romaji...this is going to be a looooooooong semester.

And thanks about the hat

That's too bad, Chris. You ought to be in the middle or advanced class. At least you should be confident to score an A+. Good luck w/ your other classes. w/ smiles Jimmy

Thanks Jimmy! I think I am going to get a certificate in Japanese. I can study more advanced Japanese now so that I can breeze through the next class too. I think there are 4 classes in all that I can take. By that time it will be one on one, which seems odd that there is only one student in class. The only difficulty for me is actually speaking it. I have no problem with pronunciation by any means it is mainly coming up with sentences correctly without writing them down. In highschool my teacher focused mainly on writing, culture, various sentence structures and tenses. I planned to take Japanese IV but it conflicted with Biology AP, so I had to make a difficult choice. Japanese IV was basically speaking fluently all the time, I unfortunately didn't make it to that level. I do however have the knowledge to get through most of Japanese III in college. The good thing about this is that I should get at least an easy 6-9 credits before it will become a challenge

That's a great collection of badges Jimmy, and very nicely presented. I have a few items of memorabillia, some 1/18 models and a couple of limited edition prints of water colours, but I'm not really into collecting things just because they have a badge on them. Although I would like a nice Ferrari watch. I don't own and won't buy any Ferrari clothing (not really my thing), but my son has a cap, T-shirt and F1 racing jacket that grandparents have bought him. My son must have 100+ die cast Ferrari models from mini Hot Wheels vehicles to 1/18 models, but they are treated as toys and I'm sure you all know how 6 yr old boys treat their toys (most of my spare time is spent mending them, supergluing wheels, tyres, spoilers ..etc back on).

Have several items. Sold a 1:12 engine on ebay recently.....never played with it.

One of our most treasured items, which we stop wearing due to Phil Hill's recent passing, is a Ferrari hat, with the following signatures on it: Michael Schumacher. Mario Andretti, Sir Stirling Moss, Sturgess, and Hill.

Have several of Hill in that he was a friend of an acauaintance etc. who had Phil sign several items of ours....Shoot, I'd of let him sign the cars.

Many small items not to mention the flags which fly all the time, pins on riding jackets, and I just love these, as John Lassiter [founder and creator, director etc. of Pixar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lasseter ] who basically invented them lives only a couple blocks away and, well, who doesn't love them.

I like that badge display case Jimmy. That's a good price too. I don't think you could collect those badges individually for that amount.

Thanx Pete. As you say collecting the badges individually is costly and time consuming and I am too lazy for that task. I debated whether to buy or not (because of the price), but at the time, I felt it was"reasonable". Oh well, ...glad you like it. How are things w/ you ? Probably you're busy w/ your work and socially too. Hope your problem at home is resolved. w/ smiles Jimmy

I think you did quite well on the purchase. And like you said, collecting them individually is time consuming and costly but I do think it could be rewarding. Maybe I should start scouring EBay?

As for how things are going with me...... The problem at home is far from resolved. My wife still has exclusive possession of my house and all my belongings and now it is court-ordered that I have to pay her to live there (In addition to paying the mortgage). The courts are backed up and we won't have a final hearing until August or September. Until then she gets a free ride and even draws a paycheck at my expense while I live out of a suitcase. I haven't even seen my house since last July. I'll be arrested if I try and go look at it. The only reason I'm back in the USA right now is to visit with my lawyer and do my taxes. Other than that I'm outta here. I'm going back to Singapore on Tuesday to relax and have some fun for a week before I go back to work. It looks like I'll be working in Brunei for a month. After that???? I don't know if I'll come back to the USA or not just yet. I'd like to go back to the Philippines and hang out but my Singaporean girlfriend doesn't want me to go to the Philippines. She knows what I'll do. I have a Canadian friend who wants me to go to Vietnam with him and show him around Saigon. I might do that. Or Malaysia, or Thailand, or Indonesia. I don't know. It sucks that I had just built that big, beautiful, heated garage with a 2-post automotive lift and it is against the law for me to go withing 500 yards of it. That badge display would look great on the wall of my garage. Oh well, maybe this fall.

How often are you in Tokyo? Because on my flight to the USA from Singapore I usually layover in either Hong Kong or Tokyo. If you would like on one of my trips back I could layover in Tokyo for a day or 2 and have you show me around a bit and I'll take you out to dinner. I've never been to Japan (other than the airport).

Hello Pete: Good to hear from you and your whereabouts. Don't waste your time collecting badges. You're too busy (and having fun) for this. Sorry to hear that your matter in the States still a standstill. I spent enough years in the States myself (West and East) and I never understood nor thought very highly of certain unfair laws, in my opinion. As for your immediate tirps to Southeast Asia, may I recommend Vietnam among the list ? I think you would fall in love w/ the charms of Vietnamese girls (not that the rest do not have charms of their own). And for your future stopover, you're more than welcome to swing by Tokyo. I'll be more than happy to escort you. I work in the heart of Tokyo, called Roppongi and I live abourt 20 miles (an hour by car) south of Tokyo, called Yokohama. Please let me know beforehand when you come to Tokyo. My cellular is 090 24266669. Office number is 03 5545 4750. I'll be looking forward to seeing you in the near future. Thanx again, Pete. w/ smiles Jimmy PS. You can of course PM also.

Hi Jimmy,
Yeah, Vietnam is high on my list of places to go. Years ago I spent a fair amount of time in Ho Chi Minh and Vung Tao. Great places to go and hang out. And yes, I am quite familiar with the charms of the Vietnamese women. They used to be my favorite Asian women but now I think the Filipinas have them beat.

I think I would rate Asian girls in this order:
1 - Philippines
2 - Vietnam
3 - China
4 - Thailand
5 - Indonesia
6 - Malaysia
7 - Singapore
8 - Mongolia
9 - Korea
10 - Russia
11 - Sri Lanka
12 - India

I haven't been with a Japanese girl so I don't know where to put them on my list. 3&4 are a close tie but the Chinese girls take the upper edge in the "cuteness" factor. 9&10 are a close call also but I rated the Russian girls slightly lower due to the fact that my only experience with Russian girls were with white girls from Vladivostok. Don't get me wrong, they were supermodel hot, tall and leggy, but they knew it and acted like it. The Korean girls are a lot more subdued in their demeaner so they win out with attitude over looks.

Actually, this is more fun then collecting Ferrari badges. Once I conquer Asia I'll have to take on Europe.

Gee, now I have to go to Japan. I'll have to look up online some decent hotels to stay at in Tokyo. Unless you have some recommendations? And don't worry, I'd be able to give you several weeks notice before I show up. I'm assuming that it is fairly easy for an English speaking person to get around Tokyo? I know that in the airport everything is in both Japanese and English and it is not hard to find an English speaking person when you need one.

Gosh, Pete...I am impressed w/ your well thought out ranking there. I am positive you would place Japanese girls within the top 5 for sure. Personally, I would like to place Russian girls in top 5. You don't need those badges. Just the casing would do and you can place pictures or mementos of girls instead !? When your trip allows stopver via Tokyo, let me know and maybe I can suggest hotels based on your needs and level of costs. There's tons of hotels of all ranges. w/smiles Jimmy

Well Jimmy, I would like to try a Japanese girl and a good one might be able to displace the Thai girls. It would be tough to get into the top 3 though, the competition is fierce. Hard to beat a willing Filipina that is ready and able.

As for the Russian girls, I don't see them getting into my top 5. I just don't like white girls. Give me a choice between a Russian girl and a Mongolian girl and I can tell you right now which one I'd pick without even seeing them.

Only on FL Pete I see you have quite the collection on that list. I suppose you are most definitely enjoying yourself overseas.
