Ordered My Dream Car [Ferrari F430 Spider]

As much as I love BMWs and Porsches I have always wanted a Ferrari since seeing a California Spider back in the 60's. I ordered a F430 Spider today. Ferrari Red with Tan interior. My beast is my daily driver and I think I will keep the Porsche for track days and killing bugs on back roads. I will probably be to scared to park it anywhere. Just keep it in the garage and drool on it. Now the long wait begins.

Wohoo! Congrats Way2fast! Now you will have the best combination I can imagine. Really great!! How long is the wait?

I guess that color combo is quite close to the one in my pic?

NICE!!

3 very fine automobiles indeed.

Lets hope your not employed....I dont think the boss will believe you the third time you are late (the same week ) and your explanation is the difficulty in choosing the appropriate car for that specific day..

Congratulations, but I do wish some Ferrari owners would actually drive their cars.
