Let me introduce myself!

Hey everyone, my name is Jr and I just wanted to take a quick moment to say "hello". I've been popping around this forum for a month or 2 now and have found some very interesting information. You all seem to know your stuff and that I like.

I have been (like most others) dreaming of the day that I can own my first Ferrari! I'm hoping to make that a reality in the next 12 months. Other priorities will have to be taken care of first and then I can splurge!

I have a serious interest in a 08-09 Scuderia. I have gotten a taste from renting a 99 360 a few years ago and I can't even explain the feeling! I do remember smelling like the suede for almost 2 weeks (and yes, I did take a shower during that time,lol).

Anyhow folks, have a good one, travel safe and enjoy your rides, I hope to join you soon!!

Cheers

Jr.

Welcome.

Is your Scud pic the one your targeting?

I heard/seen (internet pic) there's lots of nice exotics around Yorkville.

Thanks for the welcome karakal.

It's not the one I', targeting but I really like that color and I haven't even seen it in person. This was at a dealer in Vancouver.

I was interested in the Scud on your profile but went with the 16M - it was originally a Cali car.

Assume it's been sold - recall a Ferrari collector special ordered it.

Thanks guys!

I'm quite enjoying the read. So much knowledge it almost makes my head hurt, but I've learnt soo much more about these cars.

@ champ, your right, it was sold. I'm one for a simple black or silverstone and I've spotted some I really like. They are all US based. It seems they have so much more selections then Canada does.

When my time comes I don't think I will have a problem finding what I want. Again folks, thanks for the warm welcome!
