So yesterday my dad borrowed his friends testarossa. So he and I went for the ride of my life. I live in an area that has winding roads, long straight roads, and everything else fun. Well, there is a famous road in my area called Glenn Mills Road. It is only 4 miles long, and the road winds soooo much. My dad went about 80 mph the whole way, and I had the biggest smile on my face. After that, my dad told me that it was not a smart decision to go on that road because he is setting a bad example for me. But I will do it some day with my own ferrari because it was one of the best events in my whole life. That road has been a tradition in my family. My grandfather took my dad on that road in a 1957 corvette, and now my dad took me on that road in a 1987 testarossa. So after 2 hours of fun, and an average speed of about 110 mph, I was possibly the happiest person in the world. And i had to tell all of you wonderful people.

maybe you're the 2nd happiest person in the world. I would think your dad was happier since he was the one driving the car :)

actually i think i was happier than my dad because the testarossa use to be my dad's, but he had to sell it when i was born because my mom made him. So he decided to sell it to a friend so that he could still see it once in a while, and so he knew that the car was in good hands.[/quote]

Cool story!

But, and I hope you make this connection, in order to keep that tradition alive, you will need to drive your son on that road someday in a 2017 model year car since your Grandfather took your dad on it in a 1957, and then he took you in a 1987. 30 years difference in the cars, so add 30 to 1987 and you get 2017. That should give you plenty of time to do so. :wink:

So does that mean I have to buy a 2017 Ferrari. Hmmm, I wonder what it would be called. Probably something like the F660 (I'll copyright this and make millions :D). I have witnesses, nobody can steal this.

I have a correction to make. It is not Glenn Mill Road, it was Mill Creek Road. Not that it means something to some, but in case anyone lives/lived in the philly suburb area, and they wanted to try that road out or just as a reference.
