Uploaded Few 275 Videos (Finally)

Being an analogue and bonehead I am, nevertheless, I finally figured out (somehow) to upload three videos of my soon departing 275. Sorry, but I cannot seem to post a link, thus you must go to Youtube an type in a search title as .... Ferrari 275 GTB 2 Alloy Longnose... and there should be a recently uploaded video by user name ...jimmy7652.... If you open that up, you should be able to find three, short videos.
1) 2:09 This was taken getting close to work, in the heart of Tokyo.

2) 10:00 This was taken going to work rather late, from Yokohama getting on tollway heading north to Tokyo. Speed limit is 80kph, and watching out for cops, I was going at maybe 3000rpm at best.

3) 5:17 This was taken at a different day, rather early, from south heading north on tollway into the city of Yokohama where I live. I believe the windows were opened and windnoise was rather loud.

This was my first attempt at everything, therefore you must forgive me for the crudeness and less than desirable quality and content. Oh well, I least I succeeded in uploading, but I may not be able to repeat !!!??? I do have few more videos taken but let's see how you like these first. Thought you might have liked to get a tad of behind the wheels experience of this old lady. Thanx for watching. w/ smiles Jimmy

Well, Brett,...I have been the owner of this gorgeous 275 for two and half years. Few reasons, I simply have too many cars. Here in Japan, that is called stupid (which probably I am). I am the ONLY driver, I only have time to drive to/from work basically. With obligations, duties and other restraints, it is difficult to enjoy 275. When you own a car like this, I would like to drive and drive and drive. With my realities aformentioned, stupid speed limits, cops everywhere, traffic,...I came to my conclusion that I am not worthy of 275. When you drive this car, she wants to go faster and faster. Driving at less than half of her potential is very frustrating. Almost a love and hate syndrome. This car must be driven with anger almost to have her come alive. I can probably give more reasons, but basically that is it.
Unfortunately, the same applies to my other cars. In terms of speed, I think my RUF Turbo R is the fastest. Speedometer max is 360kph and I know this car can go at least 315kph with some more room to go. You almost have to go fast for these cars and living here in Japan, that is very difficult without getting into deep deep trouble. w/ smiles Jimmy

Any plans to reduce the garage further Jimmy (I hope not ) or is it just the 275 for now. Don't be getting all sensible on us now....

So you plan on replacing her with something a little more sensible, a 55

To be totally honest, this notion comes and goes. At least for now, it is 275. Thanx again, Barry. w/ smiles Jimmy

Hope you keep it that way. Maybe a Fiat 500 Abarth would be a suitable replacement (and one practical car)!

That would be a reality if that gorgeous lady comes with the car. I would sell my soul shamelessly. w/ smiles Jimmy

Thank You, David. (Altho, to be honest, I am not sure exactly what Bling would infer). I'll just take it as a positive comment ?! w/ smiles Jimmy
