An Iron Stallion

I did join neither Ferrari Forum nor Ferrari Chat until I was able to drive the 550 Maranello. I then had a reason to talk about Ferrari.

Meeting with people after driving the beast, I was informed it was a cast iron car. Bullet proof so to speak. Now with 70,000 miles on it and not really being use for a couple of years, I will now learn if it is true.

Tomorrow I take it in for its normal service. I have never missed a service which includes two majors. In but a few short weeks, I hope to drive from the Excalibur Hotel on Las Vegas Blvd. past the Stratosphere Hotel and then back to my room at Caesar’s. Of course, it will be only in first gear down the strip.

Will I make it? That is the question.


12 cylinders or walk

Bart- My money is on the Maranello. Top speed in 1st is about 45 mph, so that should work.
