First time Ferrari owner, long term car fanatic

Hi,
just purchased my first Ferrari last week. 2005 F430 red with tan leather. Has a few miles already, 38k after getting in home 1300 miles, and looking forward to adding many more to it. Already have it on the lift at home waiting for some new motor mounts to arrive. Will be giving it all a good once over while I'm waiting for spring to arrive and get it back out.

Welcome to the forum Russ (evil?)


Nice photo of your driving conditions.
I took a picture of my car in a similar situation, but it was just for show.
Like many, I don't drive my car in snow or rain.
Hats off to you.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

The evil part was mostly a joke long back that sort of stuck, so I've just embraced it.




As for the snow I think it made for a cool picture but likely shouldn't happen again. I got caught the last 90 minutes of the 1300 mile trek home by a snow storm that hit here in MN. Will only plan to drive the car in good weather from here forward, but still plan to see a good amount of miles annually. It's already been thoroughly washed top to bottom after that picture was taken and plan to followup with a good waxing and detailing this weekend. Here's a cleaner picture from the day after.
