Time I did this!

Basically, a Ferrari addict airing out his dirty laundry! It is my own personal story, my journey on the road to the buying of Ferraris , and the amazing story of how I found my first Ferrari, had my first service interval, and I am doing the best that I can to buy more cars! I hope you join me in the journey of buying them, driving them, servicing them, crashing them, abusing them, my posts will be about everything.. and maybe we will have a few good laughs along the way!

Cars
458 coupe normale, California T, Speciale A, 458 GT3, FF Maserati Ghibli diesel!
on way in 2015: La F, and 488, 2016 488 spider

Loads more to come! and my general musings abut life love and adoration with F cars!

Pauls link to the thread above will go live next Monday or Tuesday. I will start it off and over the coming months we can all enjoy an ongoing story of life in the South of France & Monaco - naturally we expect many of you to visit with or without your Ferrari's to add chapters for all to enjoy!

Btw, welcome to the forum proper, now you have introduced yourself Paul - great run out today, very wet & quite slippery (i.e. much drifting) & loads of fun as usual - LOL

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!


Current: California 30 Handling Speciale.
Past: FF, 458 Speciale, California 30, 599HGTE, Scuderia Spider 16M, California, F430 Spider

I was amazed that at some points we did not end up with armco shaped cars it was so slippy, BTW the sports setting is better in the wet than the slippy setting!

Boys will be boys - if you aren't doing something stupid you might as well be wearing a push up bra!

Looking forward to reading what you wild things do on the other side of the pond

You gotta come over & join in Doug, you'd love it man!!!!

Yesterday we were convinced one of us was going to go home in an Armco shaped Ferrari, it was warm & rainy, read very greasy, and the laughs were plenty - more will be written about in my thread 'South of France & Monaco - the ongoing story' next week

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!
