My First Ferrari ... Bucket List
After nearly 5 months of dreaming and looking, I got my first ever Ferrari. I had narrowed down my choices to either the 360 Modena or the 575 Maranello. Two different cars with different characteristics. Part of me wanted the V12 Grand Tourer and part of me wanted the race car look of the 360. There were other factors too, such as front vs mid engine and all that.
Well in the end, I got the 360 and I am happy. Actually, I would have likely been happy with the 575 ... but the 360 came along and it was right for me.
Love the car ... drives great and I have fulfilled my dream ... I am able to check off that item on my bucket list. I am nearing retirement age and for old codger ... I get a smile on my face when I drive this car.
Funny story ... I thought maybe I should get a spare wheel / tire. Checked into prices. $3000 for the Ferrari spare wheel / tire combo. Wow, they are proud of their stuff.
I live in Scottsdale, AZ ... so should be able to get out and drive all year. The summers are brutal and will have to see if the A/C in the car can cope with the 117 degree days we sometimes get. I notice in the summer there are fewer Ferraris tooling about ... so mine might stay in the garage more in the summer.
Would love to hear from any others in Scottsdale / Phoenix area. Any tips on the 360 and recommendations for service shops.
