Greetings everyone. It has been a while I have posted since I have been in hibernation here in Jersey. Needless to say, I finally decided that it was nice and a bit warm enough to take the ferrari out for a quick spin.
Last time I took the car for a run was last Nov. 24th during thanksgiving. So 4 months later during the easter weekend, I decided to fire her up. The car faltered at the first try (not enough fuel). 2nd try it fired up and started with a nice growl then settled into a nice low gluttoral humming symphony, "sweet" I say to myself, "I love this car". As soon as the temp gauge inched up, I took it out. Slowly at first for the first couple of miles, then I decided to bump it up to about 100 in the country roads. Wow what a feeling, the nice brisk 50F weather, smell of fresh air and the exhausts at full howl at 7K rpm.
I pull into an outdoor mall and visit a local store a frequent. I call one of the cute girls and ask her to come out for a surprise. (she had told me previously that she wanted to ride my ferrari - well there may another meaning to that, but that is another story). As soon as I pull into the store she was waiting and all excited. I tell her to get in and took her for a quick spin around the lot, spinning the wheels as I pulled out and fishtailing on the empty parking lots. As I drop her off the rest of the girls (mostly teens) start coming out of the store asking me for a ride
You should have seen the looks we were getting, more so the looks I was getting from the men. I would say 4 of the 6 were pretty hot. As I was driving the 6th girl (the hottest one - with her boyfriend watching us) I spot a patrol car pulling into the shopping center. I know that some old folk or some liberal tight-ass probably called in and reported a red car racing around. I immediately cut the trip and told the girl I was pulling into the parking lot and parking it in-between 2 large cars. As soon as I parked, I walked away knowing my ass is grass if he tagged me, because I still did not have a valid inspection sticker and probably site me for reckless driving. Nevertheless, I sat it out in the store with 4 of the hot ones hovering over me, since I was not paying attention to them anymore, but was watching my parked car and the patrol car who had circled the shopping lot 3-4x before splitting. I had my balls up to my throat hoping he would not scan each parking row and wait.
I said my goodbyes, told the last girl that I will take her for a ride during warmer weather. I looked around and headed back home, hoping not to run into the patrol car who obviously was looking for a red ferrari.
All in all, it was a good way to start the year
