Ferrari dealer gets the boot!

The Wynn without Ferrari - just another nice hotel.

I'm not surprised. We visited them a few years ago and were treated very well. But absent all the surrounding glitz, they're just a used car lot with a boutique. It didn't strike us as a place you'd go to order a new car. And the transitory nature of people there doesn't seem like a sustainable customer base.

Then again, I've never really understood the draw of Vegas anyway. To me, it's like Sodom and Gomorrah with electricity. Having a Ferrari there is like having a set of golf clubs in Bahrain.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I love Vegas but 72 hours and gotta go.

The best part of the dealer was the private collection - guessing you didn't go down to the garage etc. some cool stuff was stored below.

Twice I went with the F Chat guys and the dealer hosted tech sessions plus the manager is from my home town they could not have been more gracious.

Agree, they went out of their way to host us. They did take us into the garage, and you're right, there were some very nice cars there. We got the impression that the "collection" was the result,of them renting storage space?

Glad you go to see everything - think it's the owners and friends collection the renters are parked in the garage little bit further away but there were tens of beautiful cars.

Wayne Newton had a few there too.

Nice collection of cars there and the shop always has something interesting.

However, you could never take pictures, which I thought was a bit snobbish.

Wow, that's too bad. One of the only fun things I liked doing in Vegas. Guess they are moving to another location?
