hello from virginia

I am a life long car guy , I have owned probably 50 or so corvettes and other mostly american cars . THen about a year ago went with a business partner friend to FO washington
to hang out with him while he specced out his new 458 (he had a 430 ) . so anyway got looking at all the italian candy ... I prefer the front engine cars and they had a california took a test drive and 3 months later drove MY new california home . Now did I mention I tend to go over board so while I love the california a few months later I decided since I have always loved the 550/575 I really just had to have a 550 since i liked them better mainly cause I wanted a gated shifted (always thought they were cool)so with a little help from my friends at Fchat I found the perfect 2001 red over black with EVERY option including luggage and carbon fiber , modular wheels , daytona seats , leather headliner and luggage area and freshly serviced at BRADAN in fact Dan at Bradan suggested the car.
SO just got back from a drive Iove the car it is more fun to drive then any other car I have owned ...

anyway thats my story these f car forums are great have world wide group

Welcome to FLife

Now from one car nut to another - what's up with the no pictures

Lots of great people here and looking forward to hearing some driving impressions of your two cars.

Love the 550 gated shifter and it sounds like you got one very well spec'd and cared for.

Larry- Great to see you here on Ferrari Life. Your 550 was a rare one with all the goodies. Different from the California, and just as much fun.

Welcome Larry!

You'll have to come visit us at Katies and the Annapolis C&C.

I would love to see the cars in person
