LOL, tell me about it. Hopefully on my 5-year plan it'll be a different story.

I really liked the 1980s "Magnum PI" Ferraris, the 308GTSi, 308 GTB, etc. Never liked the Testarossa design. Am warming up to the 355/360 Modena design a little. A few months ago, I was startled to see a young punk in a 360 on my drive home. We don't get that kind of action around here.

I don't think I'll ever own a Ferarri because of the $5k outlay for routine services. So I've heard.

The F430 is a gorgeous car, as long as you ignore the front...

I'm sure they're godawful expensive to repair.

Not even repair, try oil changes for $800, belt replacements for a few thousand, etc...

I should be getting a job working for one of those dealerships. The mechanics should be bringing in at least $50/hr for those kinds of prices.

My father in laws friend came to visit one August on his way to Hot August Nights in Reno, NV. He used to talk about his friend driving around in this sport convertible all around New England. I thought it was some sort of MG, since this was during the 60's.

Low and behold, my wife calls me to tell me to go and see his car. It's an original 289 Cobra w/ the knock offs on the rims. All original AND he's the original owner. Now THAT is a car.

I'd rather spend the money on older muscle cars. Anyone w/ cash can buy a Ferrari. How about a Ferarri 250 GT California or a 65 GTO convertible?

Nice story, nickbuol - a lot of guys have gone that way for the kids...

I'm 6'4", two hundred harumph something. Maybe if the price comes down, the Tesla could be a go! \:\)

Seems like a lot of my friends are shopping for mid-life crisis sports cars right now.

 Quote:

I'm guessing that it means something that my first reading of that was "carbs".

As I've observed before, my daughter will be driving in a couple years and my wife deserves a nice newer car. She claims that I once weakened and consented to a British car (like an MG), but I think she made up the story while I was drunk.

I'm not passionate enough about cars to spend stupid amounts of money on them, but I'd get a newer Corvette if I could afford it.

I was easily seduced by a friend's Lexus SC430.

We'll probably end up with a Miata. Or maybe a modest Mustang.

I've recently fallen in love with the Bugatti Veyron. As soon as I come up with an extra $1.6m I'm getting one. At its top speed of 253 mph (407 kph) it used up a tank of gas in 12 minutes, so I might need another million for fuel.
