Like you don't collect and enjoy Scotch? That's like calling the kettle black Ed.

Excellent

This is my first venture into a Ferrari after over 20 years of Porsche.

But still holding onto my Boxster that I bought in 1998, just love that car.

Always loved the 456 and have been looking out for one for about a year and finally my patience was rewarded

Hi Larry, welcome to Flife, and good luck with the 456 purchase. There was a very nice one on the market here recently which I think was Grigio Silverstone over Burgundy. Think it is still with the dealer unless you have bought it of course.

Looks like Barry has already PM'd you so you should have a contact for the FOC in Ireland. Look forward to seeing you at some events.

And you can choose to ignore the usual cliche's above....I do!

Cheers
Michael

Yep, that's the one I got. Saw it 3 years ago and regretted not buying it so I promised that it it ever came on the market again I'd buy it.

Looking forward to meeting up.

Thanks,

Larry

Larry,
Dia Duit, where in Ireland are you? When we were there we started in Ballsbridge and drove down to Blarney across to Liscannor then up to Belfast (Carrickfergus). We ended our 10 day trip back in Ballsbridge again. All I could think about was how great it would be to take the F car on a drive like this.We rented a Vauxhall and it was not quite the same. Once you get out of the city,you have a great island to tour by car. Please post many pictures.
