5 Ferraris - 1 day

I drove 5 different Ferraris today. More by accident than by design. Earliest car was a 1974 and latest was a 2001. Really not that hard transitioning from one generation to the next.

Lucky you

Lucky you, from all your collection, which one you think drive the best.
For the 360, how often do you have to maintain it and what's the cost? I am looking at driving 5,000 miles per yr. Some ppl said the 430 is cheaper to maintain since not using that much belt like the 360

Isn't it cheating if you include your own cars?

Seriously, must have been a FUN day.

Nope, you get extra points if you not only own, but also drive them.

Boxer,

You lead a hard life. How do you manage to keep up your energy levels?

Thinking about it, one of your biggest costs must be the replacement of your automatic garage door motors, swapping cars all the time. And breakfast must take ages, thinking about which car you'll be taking today!!

It is a hard life, being a Ferrari herder is not the glamorous position many make it out to be.

Maybe, but at least you are out there holding up the flag for the rest of us. How else would we know what to aspire to. I am currently in the process of designing a house to be built over the next few years, and the garage has just been amended from three to five spaces - forever hopeful.
