Welcome to Flife

Great basketball game - until Mizzou lost in over time.

Lots of Scud owners to help you on your search.

There are some higher mileage scuds going for 159k.

Yellow one on e-bay 12k miles looks like the deal of the century!

Only in the Ferrari world would 12k be considered high mileage. We need to change this mindset.

I think that's exactly why Ferrari changed their warranty and are now making an effort to install longer lasting parts.

The US dealers are the ones ruining high mileage Ferrari's - they simply won't touch them which is why you see these two listed on e-bay.

Rumor has it the new ones no longer melt if they get caught in the rain.

Someone needs to inform that to the owners.

Looking at a 2010 599 HGTE with 987 miles.

I had a 360 for around 7 years. My neighbor 4 doors down is a exec at the Corvette plant. He usually gets a test car. I've been watching hoping he will get one. When they see a Scud I might get invited to the current test track for some comparison testing... lol.

In other good news, they are possibly are building a Corvette inspired racetrack here across from the Corvette museum. They will sell garage/condos if the plan works out. I plan on buying one if so.

Oh and if you want to see haters just drive a Rolls around. The Ferrari brings smiles.

I know Doug explained it before but

Why does such a car have 5 owners on the CARFAX?

Is that a Florida thing- the dealer inventory counting as an owner?

I have not seen a Bianco SCUD in person but it really look spectacular in pictures. Funny how the grays look less spectacular in pictures but really jump in person.

Sounds like a good topic for a new thread.
