Flatbed Ferrari Farewell

The last time I saw my Ferrari on a flatbed, I was jumping up and down with excitement like a little kid. She was in the body shop for over a month getting some cosmetic touch ups. I replaced the rubber seals on my back window, and sides. Took more time than I thought, and I couldn't wait to get behind the wheel and haul ass. Today seeing her on the flatbed I was crying like a baby, and watched her being towed off, and never coming back. I know, life is a bitch some times, and this is not a life or death event. But its not just a car, it's a Ferrari! You guys know where I'm coming from, right? http://gallery.me.com/christianalape...&bgcolor=black

You look so good with that Ferrari, the right owner, the right color, and the right location and climate to enjoy. We all share your hardship, Christiana. I wish there were some magical words that I can say to boost your spirit. Looking at things from a different angle, isn't it a positive thing that you feel the way you do, ...I mean that you don't want to part with your Ferrari ? Sometimes, I get so out of it, (moods roller coasting up and down), that I feel like getting rid of all of them. What I mean is that you still have the desire and will within you. Ride this out, you'll be back and brag us your next, new Ferrari. We're all wishing you the best, Christiana. w/ smiles Jimmy

Christiana - heartbraking - and yet as you say it's not life or death. Still it's not easy, I think I'd let the house go before the Ferrari!

Keep the chin up, there will be another one for sure....

That yellow beauty will come back. Some of the most successful people have been at the very top, bottomed out, and then, come back on top again. I consider you to be in that class, with class.

Hang in there and set your goals high again, you can (and will) have your baby back someday.

Best wishes!

F---

I'm being evicted from the house I have been renting, no wheels, flat broke, and no Aunt in Pasadena. Are there any Ferrari Fall out shelters out there?

Words to live by and the best way [sure that is your style anyway] to look at and feel this: WHICH IS why I bought my first also.

live, love, move on....then remember on the 'death bed' [ <-- sounded ugly all of a sudden ]

Granucci, I wouldn't have it any other way. Ordinary, routine, and predictable are words I have not, and will not live by. Born and raised in Kansas City Missouri, the day after I graduated from MU, I drove to California with three thousand bucks, and never looked back. (1983). It was a long road to the top, but the 20 years I traveled around the world, I lived, and loved like the lead character in a Jackie Collins romance novel. Maybe I should give her a call!!

Well at least you still have your health, your abilities in the business world and your brain. Don't want to beat a dead horse, but I died 3 times 2 yrs. ago , lost my leg and almost my mind! Hit by a BMW in a parking lot. Still a bit forgetful,can now drive the Ferrari , but "best of all" can now walk with a cane 1 mile. Loss is a perception! Believe me I would give all to be back were I was prior to my incident. So count your blessings, don't look back as what made your successful is still there, don't dwell on your losses . Docf
