Another Ferrari falls from the sky.....

Hey All...

Guess it happened again!

"As the story of the Toyota recalls changed every few hours yesterday, dealer Ernie Boch was interviewed by nearly every local news station. But in the wake of analysis and predictions, Fox 25 News sent their helicopter to record a chuckle-worthy clip at Boch's Ferrari dealership in Norwood, where one of his F430 Spiders was dangling off a transport truck.
Sudden accleration in a Ferrari isn't hard to muster, but that wasn't the case as the mid-engined exotic, which bases at $217,310, balanced on its rear end.
"We sold the vehicle to a guy in Florida," Boch wrote in an e-mail today. "As they were loading on the truck to deliver it to Florida, it fell off. Their guy didn't secure the emergency brake hard enough....it was totaled!!"
Business continues to slump for Ferrari, which cut production by 20 percent last year and reduced deliveries to dealers, including Boch's.
Demand, however, is still high worldwide. Customers who order a new stallion have to wait nearly two years to get one. So the Florida buyer might be a tad upset."

Too bad, really.

The FoNE owner stated in an interview that the car was being loaded not unloaded and that the driver did not adequately apply the parking brake. It also seems that he should have chocked the wheels or some other preventative measure.

Oh We'll...thats why insurance companies are in business.
