    I had a set up kind of like that but bailed on car 4 cause I never drove it given cars 1 to 3 were in the stable... We all get carried away, when one Good car is all we really can drive at a time or all we really need

    This stuff is addicting & sucks the life of our wallets LOL

    Haha the funny thing is that I was thinking exactly like you. It wasn't until after I got the one front engine V12 car that I felt the need for another. Having the 550 didn't want me not want a 599 or F12 anymore. It just made me like the front engine V12 layout and want a modern one to go along with the near-classic.

    How do you like your 360 spider? I'm having trouble not expanding my list to 5 cars so I can have a 360 too :)

    Tell me about it! I can't even afford to think about another F car right now but I can't help it. They really are like drugs.

    After having had a 512TR for almost 7 years of fun, I change the line-up from car1 to car4 now and will acquire a nice 458 next season :)

    I'm fortunate to have a TR and 360 Spider in the stable.This summer i bought a 612 and it blowed my mind,what a car....didn't expect it to be such a beast.

    Are you going to sell the 512TR? I dunno if I could do that. They're so rare and coveted! Seems like the type of car you keep your whole life :)

    Very cool! That's a great mix. I've been fortunate to have a lot of seat time in the 612. It is such a beast. Very fast and makes a great noise. And so luxurious for a Ferrari.

    I have never thought of 612; I have 2 in my stable currently and plan to add the 458 Speciale Aperta and 599 GTO or F12 tdf in my table to keep my horses accompanied .... hopefully I will achieve it soon and eventually the last one would be the dino ( almost got one last summer .... ) !!

    You definitely have to drive one! My old man is in love with them. He likes being able to drive a stealth Ferrari. The 612 doesn't attract a ton of attention if it has dark paint. A lot of people have no idea it's a Ferrari. His 430 is a dark color too but attracts way more attention.

    Hahahaha I feel ya! I have a list 100 items long of things that need to be fixed around the house. Big houses need a lot of maintenance but all my money goes to cars. And I only have a couple rooms that are actually furnished because why spend money on furniture when there are Ferraris are Porsches to buy and maintain?

    Was that pic taken before your Diablo was totaled, or did you get a new one?
