    Indeed! Happy new year. Mighty dog you got there! Probably just as big heart too.

    License plate says it is a WSR 550, which would explain the seats and roll bar.

    FR, love this photo. It looks like Paris. Where did you take it, and do you get down there? :)

    Thank you for sharing.

    Not my 550, I am afraid, but along the same lines: on arrival in Maranello, sporting an international collection of English, French and Italian flying insects -

    Erik, it is 1948, Mother and Father are taking my brother and me on a six week auto trip around the United States. No Interstate Highway system, the U.S. is joined by a network of two-lane highways. It is nearing noon, lunch time, and we are driving across Kansas, flat, flat, flat. You stand in the middle of U.S. highway 40 near Hays, Kansas, and turn 360 degrees and everything is flat cornfields - maybe it was wheat.

    We stop for lunch at a small building that contains a little general store, a United States Post Office window and a tiny restaurant. Between the building and the highway stands a single gasoline pump. By the highway stand a tall sign that boldly reads: EAT HERE AND GET GAS

    Great story!! I would call it «life essentials». If you have a Ferrari, and you get gas, food and something to drink on a warm day (or a cold day!), it is all that you need. To continue the journey with the stallion is all that matters. Life is PERFECT.

    A six week roadtrip in 1948 with a car in America must have been a real trip of a lifetime. Did you see any cowboys or native indians along the way? Or maybe Al Capone? :)

    Erik- Any time you drive through the US Southwest, you see cowboys, Native Americans, and wild mustangs. Through Wyoming, you see thousands of Pronghorn Antelope, too. When we go fishing in Utah from New Mexico, we pass through a half dozen Native American reservations. Those are treated like sovereign nations in some respects.

    Sounds like I need to do another roadtrip in the US. Have done a few. From Sacramento to Key West :)
