I'm Rich and Broke, Which Ferrari Should I Get

HELP!!
Cant get Ferrari out of my head
I do OK, over 500k, my own business, nice house, big mortgage, the usual story-
Dying for a 2+2- I have 3 little ones, of which 2 are boys 4 and 7.
Here's the question. Do I get the 365 GT for 120K which will appreciate and is gorgeous but may break me or the safe 365 GT4 for 40 grand or so but not really anything better than a 7 series BMW??
Have a few collectables now but come on.. Ferrari is Ferrari!
Talk me into the 69 365 please!

The NEW Ferrari California is great if you have a few little ones because they will be the only ones small enough to fit in the back seats comfortably

What do you see as the difference between these two cars? Pros and Cons? What draws you toward one over the other? What do you think the maintenance on either of these cars will cost? What keeps you from buying the one you want?

500k?! Then you might want to take a look at a used f430, or if you don't mind spending a bit more, a 458 italia.

If you want a classic Ferrari, then a 355 is the best way to go (best looking Ferrari pininfarina ever designed, my opinion)

A Maserati Quattroporte, used of course, is a lot better than a BMW 7 series, not on luxury but on exclusivity (makes you look more formal and serious, more like a very successful and stylish person) and the noise that it makes... Also, it's better looking, the badge is a lot superior (I mean everybody has a BMW, not the same story with Maseratis) and it was made in a time where Maserati was owned by Ferrari so it's a four door Ferrari, kind of.

Bes of luck dude

Actually the car you want is a 66 330 GT 2+2 or a 72 365 GTC/4

Why not go for a 456GT M? It's 2+2 and not too expensive.

Or do you only want old classic cars?

Current: 2003 Challenge Stradale, 2007 599 GTB F1
Past: 2001 360 Spider, 1995 F355 GTS

Scagliettis are dropping in price. Have patience and get a 612. It is an awesome car.

Also, try the classic Ferraris as well as the modern Ferraris. You never know what eventually will be your first Ferrari love until you've tried a few of them... Good luck

If you prefer modern and can stretch a bit, definitely the 612 over the 456.
