355s and 550s are becoming very affordable these days

(not including maintenance costs of course)

See my hope is that the F430 follows that path in 20 some years and is affordable as well.

Bad ass....but something just doesn't seem right about a Ferrari with a turbo.

I'm on my way back to Charlotte at the end of the year and may have to scope out their shop....if they provide tours or something.

If the 360 market is any indication, they should be within' a few years when the 458 variants have settled into the dealers.

Just depends on what you define as affordable.

I realize we all want to buy one at some point, but I'd say rent one when you have a chance to or take one of those exotic car tours (preferably one that lets you open it up somewhere). It'll be the best money you've spent in your life.

I rented a 360, and the experience still lingers with me 10 years later.

Its like having a 1 nighter with the chick you never thought you'd never have a chance with. You get to have all the fun and don't have to incur maintenance costs. You get to say 'Ya, I was in that once'....

Yes, I'm talking about the car.

Since I've rearranged my photobucket account, I must have gotten rid of some of my F car shots. Here are a few from my Flickr...full size + more shots available upon request.

I remember wanting to play that game so bad even before I could actually drive. There was an option for the F1 gearbox, though.

I went there a while ago and the game was gone
