My first true Ferrari experience was aged 11, on holidays in Northern Italy (having driven with my parents and brother and sister from Ireland), we arrived in a small town somewhere about an hour over the border from France.
Stopped off for ice-cream and a stroll only to find a Ferrari owners convention in the middle of the town square. It was 1989 and the square was full of the cars that covered the walls and ceiling of my bedroom, 3 F40's parked up beside us, just tantalisingly out of reach, and in total probably 60 - 70 F cars were in attendence. To this day my bedroom at home (parents home!!!) is covered in the pictures taken that day. I promised myself that I would someday own a Ferrari as we drove away from the town.
18 years later (3 months short of my self imposed deadline) I actually took a drive in a Ferrari. The same Ferrari that sits in my garage now and I expect will be in my posession for it's foreseeable future.
