Ok -a completely feel good post which sadly is not BS

As some f you may know, I've been in the market for awhile & I finally have my baby " Carlette" a combination of my & my wife's name. A F430 spider. And as some of you know it's been my journey in dealing with cancer, which I was rid of for a while but may be back. ANYWAY, it really has been a great journey, and has given me something to look forward to everyday. Everyday I look at Ferrari life to see what people say (especially Taz & WetPet). And I look at my Car! God I love that Car, maybe not as much as my wife or my dog. ... Or the Kids? But it's been great and you guys have been great. I'm back to learning which is wonderful. I learn everyday.
Ok - enough of the emotional BS, get back to work. Stop feeling good about yourself, you could be driving a Renault dalphin 1962!
But thanks everybody!!!

I never wanted to go into a gunfight with the cheapest gun!

Thank You!

I had stage 3b not long ago. One of the best days was lowering myself into the 16M that while extremely painful well worth it.

My wife just has a double mastectomy - caught it early.

It sucks knowing the odds of cancer returning but there is no better medicine than appreciating what is in the present.

Great post feel free to pm me.

Carl, a Ferrari 458 may be the best medicine for the mind and soul.

Congrats! You'll beat this cancer. Post pics of the delivery smile.

I'll say a prayer for your recovery right now :-)

Cheers!

Stay tuned to Ferrari Life, Carl!

Now go and get a set of spiked tyres and come winter you'll send us some pictures of your spirited driving in the snow!

Sweden is one of the few countries where spikes are legal, so Carl, go crazy!

Salve,
Capo

The bad news: Time flies
The good news: I'm the pilot

You cannot make life longer but you can make it wider and higher.

Carl- Any Ferrari owner who does not sneak a peak at his Ferrari frequently when she is in the garage, or take one last look as you walk away after parking her, probably has a problem and needs a new love object.
