Of course, the 430 is the hottest V-8 around. It is loud, light, and quick but also tiring to go long distances and without carrying any luggage.

Never drive less than 12 cylinders!

Mid-Life crisis. Heck, I had one years ago and I purchased the finest car of the 20th century, the 550.

When I was a teenager, I loved a loud fast car. I never had any idea of driving it but for an evening. Now that I am older, I drive my car to various place, i.e., Las Vegas, the Bay Area, and San Diego. I must carry a change of clothing. My wife takes the kitchen sink. My Ferrari can carry it all. THe 430 does not.

The 430 is either a Sat. night car for a teenager or a Sunday afternoon car for an old man.

ps: I am buying my son a Deleorn this spring.

The 550 is nice, but it isn't mean enough. Plus teenagers tend to like more agressive driving so I would make the argument based on your post that the 550 is for Sunday drives with an old man behind the wheel (hint..hint).

BTW, the 550 is much to quiet for a V12 Ferrari. Again I'm guessing because it is the old mans car and the F430 is well for those with spirit :green:

I know a man who raced his Tessa Rosa from Owners Mills in Ontario (near the crossing of the I-10 & the I-15) to the front door of Caesars in Las Vegas in two hours flat.

Well?
