You seem to be in a pretty dangerous place right now! Having sold both your GTO and your Dino, you are left with a whole lot of money, a whole lot of cars to choose from, and a big hole in your heart that you may be tempted to fill with anything sexy right now. Although I would love you to buy a nice Ferrari (because I would get to see it), I have to be a friend and put your interests before mine! So my advice is, indeed, for you to step back a little, wait a few more months, maybe come with me for some drives to get to know your options better. I should easily be able to give you access to a nice Scuderia, and an equally nice 599, at least in the passenger seat. And of course to my 308. At least it would give you an idea of what recent Ferrari feel like on "our" roads, that with the two types that are available: a powerful GT and a wild Berlinetta. Sorry, for a wild spider taste, you'll have to go and see our friend 16M Down Under!
There are so many cars to consider, I had never thought about it before because you once told me you felt recent cars were just too big for you, but for example the 599 GTO would be a nice mix of your ex (name heritage), the scuderia (wild) and the 575 (GT)! It's probably expensive, but may keep its value much better than most of recent cars, being considered as a "super" Ferrari. This is just an example of what you could also consider if you're going for recent cars too. To be honest, small cars are very nice to drive, but having driven the 599, which is huge, I didn't feel like the size was a problem at all, because with recent technology everything is just easy and smooth. Again, frustration is the main issue here. That and keeping your license alive!
OK, I'm not helping... anyway, here's what I propose you: if you're wanting to take a rash decision regarding a car, just give me a call before you sign anything. At least I'll tell you if you're about to do something stupid. Then you can do it anyway, because you're a grown up man, but at least I may get to have you think twice!
If you're around during the end of year (between the 30th and the 4th), maybe we can plan a nice little drive like we did when the GTO came beginning of 2013?
PS: I just checked, 599 GTO prices seem to have gone wild already... I wonder how much they want for the only one for sale in Japan, the white one in Osaka...)
