Trip to Cauley Ferrari and Maserati

I finally made it to Cauley Ferrari and Maserati of West Bloomfield, Michigan today. It was absolutely spectacular. Seeing the Scuderia for the first time was amazing....then again there were four Scuderias There was also a 599 GTB, 612, 2 F355 Spiders, a few 360s (coupes and spiders), a bunch of F430s (coupes and spiders), 3 550s, Superamerica, 328, a race car, and an obnoxious amount of Maseratis. I shall post the pictures very soon.

The first two pictures show the ridiculous amount of new Maseratis they have. Obviously the next is a Scuderia. I personally think this was the best color combination there. I assume it was in for a service because it had a plate on it and the tires showed some wear.

The Scud engine didn't come out that well.

My friend and I finally decided to go inside and take our drooling mouths off the Scuderia...unfortunately to meet two more Scuds on the inside

We were met by 3 different sales people that didn't seem to really enjoy us being there. The first guy didn't mind us there next to the Scuds. He said for us to take as much time as we wanted looking around. When we went to the used show room and I saw my favorite car in the flesh another salesperson asked us if we need any help with a particular car I could only wish. The last guy just seemed kinda irritated that we weren't buying shirts or jackets. He said they had more sizes in the basement. I didn't want to spent $85 on a T-shirt...

The last of the pictures. I ran out of memory on my phone. My friend took a ton more on his camera. I'm sure they came out better than mine also. The F430 was a 6 speed manual

the fly 355 with shields is always quite stunning in person, and what made me realize yellow IS good on a Ferrari: BTW, a spyder F1, 355 fly with shields was the first Ferrari I ever drove. ....... thus why I picked ferrari355 for my ebay name [watching everyone gooing off to ebay to google my moniker ]

The yellow caught my eye so fast. It was absolutely gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice at all. I am disappointed in how the yellow came out on camera.

Now Rik you shouldn't be buying that dirty stuff on ebay. HAHAHA.
