New to the Forum

My name is Ryan and I am new to the Ferrarilife forum, but I am not new to the cars. I have worked for Ferrari dealers for the last 8 years. I am here to learn more about these cars and hopefully I can help some of you with them as well. Feel free to PM me any time.

I worked at a dealer in Chicago on the North Shore and I work at a dealer in Scottsdale. I have worked on mainly newer stuff from 348 up. I have been lucky enough to have worked on and driven a F40 and Enzo. One of the highlights of my life was going on hot laps in a Enzo at Road America in Wisconsin. I love these cars and hopefully you guys can teach me more about them. I also work on the Bugatti Veyron. There is nothing like doing a launch control start in a Veyron. The blood rushed to the back of my head. It was amazing.

Holy $hite I don't know if we can teach you anything more like you can teach us you will be a definite asset to FL.

We love to hear experiences of first time drives so if you don't mind tell us more about your driving impression of all the cars you took out from the awesome 348 (sure I'm bias sue me..) to the Veyron we would love to hear about them.

I am off to my nightclub now so I won't be back till Sun night hope you add a couple of stories.

Thanks for the interest but I am sure no one wants to hear me drone on and on about cars. I really consider myself to be very lucky. I get paid to drive the finest cars in the world. I also have been lucky enough to of been paid to go to France and watch the Veyron and new GrandSport get built. I am sure that you guys will be able to teach me a lot. I look forward to that the most. If anyone ever has any questions about any car just ask.I have worked for Bentley, New Rolls Royce and some old, Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin, Lotus, and Lamborghini.

No, I wish never had the honor of working on a F50. I do know the guy that does and he is a great technician. I have ridden in one and that was a real treat. Amazing cars. I think one of the best cars Ferrari has ever produced style wise. The removable hard top was awesome. The one that I got a ride in was a Silver repaint it was a good repaint. The owner also has one of two original silver Enzo's. AMAZING.

The Scottdale F50 I am referring to was a repaint to Rosso Corsa. The prior owner in Texas had it painted blue (?) to match all his other Ferraris.
