Awesome, love the f40 and f50, almost bought an f40 in 2006, but chickened out. I used to deal with Shane Whelan mainly, now it's lee since Nigel left and went his own way

Do you know Chris woods? I know he deals, or used to, with Carrs a lot?

Very much the same. I used to deal with Nigel and now Lee since he left. Mark and Harvey do all my servicing and have always been outstanding. They have even done the servicing on the Jaguar XJR-15 and Koenigsegg.

I don't know Chris but do have a few other friends who buy from Carrs regularly.

You crack me up!

That's a gorgeous 612 and as I just welcomed you in the 430 club seconds ago I now offer the same congratulations to the 612 club.

Two of the greatest dd Ferrari's ... but I may be prejudice!

Enjoy em both!

Thought you would like the combo. Call it one for fun and one for the family (or the inner child and the exterior adult).

Gorgeous purchases there! Love that 612. Couldve had mine if you wanted a manual, thinking about changing it for a v8 Ferrari, maybe back to 430 or even late 360, had mine a while and although it's amazing, fancy a change.

Only done 12000 miles!

Boxer- Congratulations. Fly fishing in southern Colorado with no internet connection so first I have heard about the new car. She looks like a beauty and I know you will enjoy her. Just ask Doug.

Boxer-- Water was low and clear, so perfect. Jan and I hit about 50 fish on dry flies over two days of fishing. 8-10 were about 18"/2 lbs.

Yept - at the end of the day nothing compares to a 12 cylinder Ferrari.

I will deny this post in the 430 section

Boxer- Sages in various lengths and weights. This trip it was a 9' 5 wt SLT for my wife and a 9' 4 wt Z-Axis for me. I use the 4 wt even for throwing Salmon Flies on the Madison or throwing other large flies like hoppers. Thinking about a new Sage One, but not sure it has a much backbone as the Z-Axis for big flies and long casts.

I drove the 612 for about 500 miles on FLED 6 and it was great. Very pleased with the acquisition.
