Because of the people who populate this place, my life has grown. The other places are of the teenager boys* and the middle age want to bes*. Wisdom is in the Ferrari. It is the finest car I have ever witness. Some may be better in a category but Ferrari is the finest overall. Price is not an objection. One may purchase a very fine example of an entree level rear engine V-8 for around $25,000*. The masses can have one. If you cannot get a $25,000 car, then you are not old enough* or your work is not valued*. Rolls takes the four-door category*.

The beast may be up for sale. The company, which owns it, does not have the cash flow to maintain it nor pay me a salary. Therefore, by disposing of it, the company may maintain for some additional period of time. Humm!

I had better start to think straight again.

My problem is to figure how much to ask for a 550 with 66,000 miles. All services and two majors have been done with the paper work*. Nuts, the beast is strong and happy, but some buyers may want a caged animal no longer at its peak. It is a little over 11 years old but can since go over 201 mph safely*. This is not chum speed*. It is stock except for the green tire pressure gauges on each wheel.

:(

Bart,
Is it time to give the 550 to your son? He can afford it. Seriously, give it to Jack. That way you would still be able to drive it.

PM me the lowest price you would let it go for. I can consider a 550 right now. Of course I wanted a red one........

If your company needs to dispose of the car, and likely doesn't know much about Ferraris, maybe you can get the car for a steal from them?

Pete,
Hope you get it!
Yeah, I just have to figure out how to tell the wife that it is for "us". That is going to be a hard sell. :)

I still think Bart should sell the car to his son. His son does the same kind of work I do and makes some pretty good coin at it. He still lives at home and Bart's wife isn't too anxious to kick him out the door. Bart's son can afford any car on the planet. So when he goes off to work for a month, guess where the 550 is? Bart would be like, "Honey, I'm just going to take the boy's car out for a spin. Keep the battery charged up for him you know."

Thanks. Now I have a way to get to my son's money. He is in the American Merchant Marine. They make big bucks.

Yipes, I have to ask my son for permission to drive my friend? This is a problem.

Well Bart, you want the car in your garage with your son paying all the bills for it or do you want it in my garage on the other side of the country?

And you don't have to ask him to drive the car, you just wait until he goes to work and take it. Consider it a storage fee. When I lived at my parent's my Dad treated my Mustang convertible like it was his own while I was at work. He was like, "Well, if you don't like me driving it then store it someplace else." Yeah, he had me there on that one.

Some may not know it but I am a son of a gun. A baby boomer I am not. The beast shall be mine when I drive it the North East of this grand county of ours. I have just spent a week moving from my office of 9 years to a half size place. Crap, I want a larger place. Do not get in my way. The Maranello will not leave the company.

My woman (of 40 years) is not happy. This is not good for me. With her unhappy, she can make me unhappy. This is not a goal of mine.

Bonzi!!!

Seriously Bart, tell your son to go to the bank and get $50k and you will give him the title to the car. You will still have the use of the car and the cash flow will boost your business, Jack will have a 550 for dirt cheap and have an awesome car for a 23 year old, you will still have it for 2 weeks of every month. The car will not leave it's current parking spot and the keys will still be hanging in your kitchen. Remind him who paid for his 4 years at the academy.

$80-90k in your pocket will make that car go away. You can make it stay and still get $50k by selling it to Jack.

Pete from Maine has merit in what he says. If you really wanted to keep that car, why not keep it within the family. At least you can still see it's progress and yes, USE it when the family member isn't around. Like what you said "keep the battery charged" LOL. Im sure those 66K miles came with great memories ;)
