Ferrari Life members in Ireland are few and far between, so today when I had to take a trip from Dublin to Belfast with my son, I took a short diversion in the 360 and called in to see Maranello House and his collection of diverse Italian machinery.
What a wonderful diversion. A garage full of interesting Italian automobiles, pictures of wonderful Ferrari's and of course his beautiful 308 GTS with the engine out beside it for all to admire.
A home full of magificent Ferrari memorabilia, each one with a unique story, tea, sandwiches and endless conversation. I'd still be there if I hadn't had to get home!
Just like Fled 3 & 5, it has reaffirmed my belief in the ability for the love of the Ferrari marque to draw like minded enthusiasts together - and of course the catalyst for it all is FerrariLife.
Many thanks Maranello House for your hospitaility, a thoroughly enjoyable lunch, tour of the works in progress, and for sharing some of the stories behind the unique Ferrari items in your home.
(and yes I totally forgot to take a single picture! Sorry.)
