What part of Canada you from? Also when did you get this car?
Do you have any more pics? Why is this picture from photobucket.com?

Congratulations and welcome. Your 550 looks exactly like my old one (minus the gold brake calipers). Does it have the quilted Daytona shelf ?

Congratulations....

Sweet 550, so are you from TO? So it's abvious then that your car is a US model. Did Ferrari of Ontario do the conversion or is it still in miles?

Im from Gatineau (5mins from Ottawa)

Sorry bud don't get to cocky there are a lot of posers out there not saying that you haven't bought the car but we came across this before so excuse me for being sort of suspicious..... most pics are not from general photo site

All of mine are hosted on my photobucket site! I don't know how/where else to host them! But I swear I own a real 308, I'm not just posing!!! I swear, man, it's the truth!!! I can even do it F-Chat style and take a picture of the car with a newspaper and my middle finger!

Welcome, sweet looking 550. The more I see them the more I want one. That colour really suits it too.

Not necessary and it is pretty easy to upload pictures here. Just click the manage attachments button and then add and upload the files.

I agree, I figured my next Ferrari would probably be a 355 but now I'm kind of leaning towards the 550. Especially after listening to Bart over the years. My dentist just traded his 328 for a 575 last fall and he is absolutely in love with the 575. He's anxious for spring to have me come down and try it out. I'm anxious too!!.
