Hello Everyone

Good evening everyone,

I figured I would join up on this forum since I have been lurking here for quite some time. I used to own a Turbocharged Lotus Elise that was an absolute blast and it is where my username is derived from. Ever since I was a kid I had dreamed of driving/riding in a Ferrari. My Lotus allowed me to meet and befriend people that owned my ultimate dream car.

I remember when I rode in my first Ferrari with my friend. It was a Scuderia and the sound and handling absolutely blew my mind. I threw him off when I told him it was all that raw, but coming from a Lotus anything is pretty much luxury. Eventually my friend allowed me to drive his Scuderia to a car show (my wife was my collateral). That was the scariest moment of my life. I drove maybe 10 mph below the speed limit the whole time until he made my wife call me and tell me to hurry up after he got tired of me lagging behind. A few months later I had the honor of driving his Challenge Stradale as well. He is a big reason that the Ferrari fire is burning in me.

I am quite a few years away from being in the position to purchase my own Ferrari as family and work are my priorities at the moment, but when the day comes, I know it will be well worth the wait. In the meantime, I will research and learn as much as possible until that day arrives.
