I just looked at the used Ferraris for sale on this forum.

I guess I am in trouble if I wish to dispose of my beast. All of the cars were in fine or better shape. My sweet thing would have to be classified as what?

It has only a little over 50,000 freeway miles on it and all services have been done on time. Except for correction cost for what a dealer in central California did to it at the 30,000 mile major, the car runs very well. The air dam has been repair twice and most of the rock chips are small.

Maybe if I drive it for another ten years, I could get my money out of it. How much would I spend for the enjoyment of driving the Beast? Heck, this is better than a lease.

It's been lovingly crafted for the purpose of being used & enjoyed. That's what you're doing.

It's a shame that more Ferraris aren't driven more often. Unfortunately it means that there will always be a lots of low-mileage & "unworn" cars on the market, and they set the general price level.

As you know Bart, your car is not likely to resell at the typical 550 market price, as it will have lots of miles under its paws. It may have to be discounted up to 20% - who knows? I guess that's part of the real cost of owning & enjoying the car as you do. But as you say, it's still cheap (& almost unbeatable) enjoyment. 8)

Thats exactly right 3fish.

Look at drive.com.au - there is heaps of 360M/S with only 2000Km on the clock! Most of the Ferraris on there have less than 10,000km. I am yet to see one with more than 80,000 on the clock!

I guess people do not buy the cars for the driving, but more so to show off and pick up 21 year old women.

How about they give the cars to me, and i go and pick up 21 year old women. At least im closer to that age than them! - i'd get in some sweet driving too, with the women of course!

:p

(i kid)

But i think you should keep the car, drive it until it needs a complete engine rebuild :)

Bart: Never forget very few things get better with age and cars are not one of them. Very very very few cars do get a collector status but it is almost impossible to know wich cars Ferrari or not. I find that if you are thinking of selling then sell it cause it will be worth less next year look what happened to the 328/308 etc etc
