New guy from St. Louis. Picked up my first Ferrari yesterday!

Hey guys! I was sent over from a friend on Facebook.

This is me saying hi!


My first Ferrari was delivered to me yesterday. Drove down to St Albans and snapped a few pics.

Congrats Eric, excellent color choice. Hopefully you were able to do your due diligence and there won't be too many "oh sh*t" threads from you, for a while at least!

Give us the gritty details on it and what led you to this particular car?

Beautiful car in a very unique color - first I've heard of the code. The red calipers look awesome and 'pop'.
Enjoy.

I did a lot of reading and searching before I made the purchase.

I made sure that everything is in working order and has been religiously maintained. Major was done 1.5 years ago. It needs nothing!

I started to go through the maintenance records, but it damn near made me sick to see how much the previous owner paid for the upkeep. Crazy!

I'm a pretty big car guy, so I'll be doing the majority of the work myself.

Welcome to the mob, Eric! Lovely car and color. Glad you got the berlinetta and a car that is fully sorted. Your 355 will shock you with the immediacy of all of its responses on the road and on the track, if you go there. Enjoy!
