Hello from Seattle!

Hello everyone of Ferrarilife.com. I have browsed this site from time to time as I find many of the threads very interesting. Over the past couple of months I have gained a significant amount of knowledge about the more technical aspects of being a motor head rather than just looking at pictures and comparing 0-60 times. I am not a Ferrari owner, but certainly consider myself an enthusiast. Unfortunately my only hands on experience with a car is my 2004 v6 mustang, and I plan to keep that as my sporty car and use my Subaru Forester as my practical car for the time being. The savings account for a Ferrari is certainly growing and I hope to be asking questions about what to look for when purchasing the prancing horse marque in the not so distant future. I had an opportunity to drive a 355 Berlinetta a few months ago and I absolutely loved it. The way the steering felt was amazing. It was one of the only times that I have felt like I was in complete control of the driving experience. I have also driven a V8 Vantage, however I enjoyed the feel of the 355 much more. The only other car I have driven that has given me that shiver-down-your-spine-satisfaction that I experienced with the 355 was a BMW 2002 turbo.

I look forward to being a part of the Ferrarilife.com community and sharing my interest in automobiles.
