Sounds like a man of very good taste! Did he have a Dino? Do you still have it?I have always loved the Ferrari and the distinct sound of its engine. It was my late husbands love for the Dino did I actually being to really appreciate the older Ferrari's and the work and love that went into them.
I think that notion is both accurate and inaccurate at the same time, but understandable. Today's Maseratis sell new for a fraction of the price of a new Ferrari and by necessity the cars reflect the price differences. That is largely a function of FIAT's decision when they acquired Maserati to design, manufacture and market the brands for different buyers. Of course, poor people cannot afford either Ferraris or Maseratis.My Ferrari fascination grew out of Maserati ownership, when I moved here to the United States in 2009 I was able to lease my first QP. I didn't buy my first F car until November of this year.
People say Maserati are the poor mans Ferrari and I don't think that is the case, I've owned three tridents in my time.

Very interesting write up, thankyou. I heartily endorse what you said about Carrs: I started using them to service my 550 coming up to 6 years ago now, have since bought two cars from them (Dino and Maserati), and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. They also happen to be a very nice bunch of people.Finally got around to compiling my Ferrari Ownership History. Write up is:

He still does - nothing is too much trouble. My Dino is going in for some TLC from Harvey next week.Thanks and great. Was referring to Mark Ware - he always made sure the cars were very well taken care of.
