Default New Addition to Stable

Yes, I kept my C6 - with 117,000 miles on her - normally my daily driver - but six days ago I purchased an '88 328 GTB Ferrari in North Carolina and drove it home.

In the six days of ownership I have had more compliments, comments, more photos shot, more conversations than I've had with my '07 C6 in almost 7 years of ownership. I've had the Vette in more than 20 states and I'm a really outgoing, friendly, approachable guy.

With the Ferrari people stop to talk to me in gas stations, grocery store lots, Walmart parking lots, hotel parking lots, etc - yes, I take it to Walmart, just as I have the Vette for the past nearly 7 years.

I drove both cars day before yesterday and could not get the smiles off my face in both cars.... I was thinking just how great it is to be nearly 72-years-old and having so much fun!

Great looking rides.

I drove mine to Wal-Mart also (but parked a little far out)... I couldn't stay in the store long. I was worried about some idiot bumping into it.

The Ferrari is less common, thus probably the reason for the increased attention. Enjoy your new ride.

Congrats. It's great to see you enjoying these cars.
More pics though, you can't just tease us a little bit like this.

great looking pair of cars you have. I have always been an admirer of Ferrari. There are not may out there that I am not impressed with. Post up some more pictures when you can.
I attend a monthly Cars & Coffee at a Ferrari dealership that is about 5 minutes from my house.
