It is a Porsche, you can tell by the wheels. It isn't his car, I'm not sure what model it is.

Changed my mind i want the F355, an amazing car, i love them, not the fastest Ferrari but a very important one in my opinion.

A guy i know just took delivery of an F430 spider and its meant to be awesome has your Dad considered one of them or is he just after Classic's.

the F355 will be a Future Classic, in the Uk there value is heading back up to 50-65k for a 95 spider

I like the white x5 in the background thats what my younger bro has.

No it sure isn't, only the turbo s of that model had the vents.

Bambino Don, yeah the X5 is his also. I just didn't feel like mentioning it up next to all the other stuff. Hopefully a Cayenne Turbo will replace that soon. X5 has been a good car but, time to upgrade.

Can we get some pics of the garage? That is my favorite part of 6speed, the garage forum. It makes my little single bay 1970 midget garage cry.

Yes, he tried to order one from Ferrari, they wouldn't accept his order. Apparently you have to have owned 2 previously to even order one from them. He was told 1 when he bought the 355 but, now it's 2.:yawn: He said screw them and bought the GT and an Audi R8 which should arrive first of the year. Ferrari's are overated imo also. They're under the assumption their ******************** doesn't stink and parts and maintenance are ridiculous. In all the years of development they haven't figured out a way to have the car maintained without dropping the whole motor out the bottom. Way to go.

I remember you saying that in a previous post, that is so stupid!!!

I love ferrari's too much too say a bad word and since reading this post am in the classifieds looking at 355 spiders, although i keep reading the coupe is a lot better, ''ALLROUND''

Yellowboxster: have you an opinion, did your dad test drive both before buying the spider??

GT3 RS crowns that collection IMO.

I've read somewhere, most people break into the Ferrari mold by buying used at first.

Very very nice. We just picked up our third, an 01 986S for my fiancee. I have a 944 and a 951.

Once I trade my daily driver Audi for a truck, I'm picking up a 911 for daily use.

I love Porsches... great cars that can be used every day.
