Opinions on making the trip?

Hey all! Hope your Saturday is well. So my birthday is coming next month and as most of you remember, I went to Ferrari of Seattle last year to have a look around. I am debating weather I want to do that again. Since I moved its almost a 2 hour drive now.'I would like to go again to talk to the techs since I got my job. So what's your opinion? Would there be any other ideas of what I could do involving ferraris for my b-day in WA, state?

Thanks.

There inventory isn't very good. Lots of muscle cars, but I can see those anywhere. Not a single Ferrari.

Happy Bday again Cutter. I rememeber your birthday last year. man, has it already been a year since you went? Time flies huh?

I say, to make it better this year if you do go, see if the dealership will give your dad a test drive in a F car with you as a passenger! that would be the best gift you can get.

keep us updated!

Thanks MC! Yeah that's what I was hoping to do this time, get a test drive. Knowing Craig the sales manager, I think it would be hard to convince him of it. He's a nice guy but is very "corporate" if you know what I mean.

Really? Corporate? That's too bad.

Too bad you don't live in Chicago. I walked into Continental Auto sports in Hinsdale, IL right outside Chicago like 4 yrs ago, he asked what I did, told him, and he let me test drive a Maserati Quattroporte and Ferrari 360 almost let me drive a 360 CS but it was getting serviced at the time!

It's a bummer.....But I can understand why he is cautious, it's a $200,000 Ferrari that he knows we can't afford

Shouldn't be too hard to convince an owner on here to take you for a ride, surely? If you lived in Holland it would certainly not be a problem - lots of people have ridden - and driven - my cars.

Happy b day cutter. I vote make the trip. put your name and face out there if you want to work at such a place. however I think I advised last year to aim higher so you can buy many Ferraris.

What do you mean "aim higher"? The specific career path in Ferrari's?

I've decided not to go to Ferrari Of Seattle, Instead I'll be going to the LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma. Everyone I've talked to says it's great.
