Saturday morning ... walk?

As my 550 is away at the dealership to troubleshoot an attitude, I decided to actually walk part of the seaside road that Boxer and I usually drive on. So I noticed a silver 330 driving past but a bit late to actually picture, and later a blue 250PF convertible which I managed to capture with my cell phone. The quality is bad, but it's there to share.

Can't wait for my Ferrari.

Yeah, driving a Ferrari beats walking any day. It's funny when your doctor tells you you need to walk more and then gets in his Ferrari to drive home.

Haha, my Doctor drives a BMW 650i, and my Dentist drives both a BMW X5, and a BMW 330i, but has a huge house built on a lake. Psh, unbelievable I would definately buy a 355 instead of a 650i

In conclusion I would definitely rather drive a Ferrari then walk because I think it would get your heart pumping more than if you were going on a silly little walk

Today, the weather is better and I guess I'll try starting up the ol Porsche turbo, that has been forgotten for quite sometime. The (new) tires are probably square by now, and the new battery (new in the fall) might not even work.

What do you know, I have evolved this thread from walking on the roadside into Porsche talk; enough said, I think I will stop writing about cars that are not Ferrari.

Sorry for bringing this up guys, I swear I won't do it again!

No, no do not feel sorry. I have to add on a little bit about Porsche.....because I just sold my 911 Turbo 997........it was a great car, so perfect, so secure.....SO EMOTIONLESS ?!

So my fun car garage has now another place (2) available

It looks like quite a nice PF Spider. Never seen it before. Was there a Ferrari Classic rally in the area ?

Not really, the cars drove past with a big interval. Unless it's another one, I think I know that 250PF as having belonged to a late friend of mine who sold it about 10 years ago, we can talk about that later.

You're back in town?

I have to congratulate you for your die-hard attitude towards Ferrari and your decision to partout with the car that has the engine behind-the-rear-wheels. I keep mine (car that has the engine behind-the-rear-wheels) because I haven't decided what to do with it, as I don't really have the time for it (to enjoy - which I don't so much anyway - or even think about it) and it sleeps in a garage away from the house I live in. In fact if you want to make sure you don't drive your cars, store them away from home.

Thank you and yes, I could not agree more about having the car away from yourself. You just will not get there. Isn't it often like that that we just move the cars for 20 minutes, right before the next rain, enjoying it and then..fast, fast...in the Garage again.

you are way luckier than me (of course you are, you have a 550, but anyway), I "only" got to see some Porsches, BMWs and a Ferrari Mondial walking down that same road

but then the next day I was riding with Boxer, so not too bad! hehehehehe
