Exactly. If you're gonna own an expensive high-powered high-maintenance vehicle then you have to use it for its intended purpose. Otherwise it's like buying a Kentucky Derby winner for a trail ride.

Re: Ferrari Ownership Costs

My daily transportation is pretty mundane. Still, I've never been able to shrug the desire to go fast, in something that invigorates the senses. But...a car isn't the only way to feed the monster inside...

For thrills...get into karting. More fun than just about anything with your clothes on. It's relatively cheap, safe, and much more fun than driving a sports car on public roads, surrounded by cops, nuts, and Sunday drivers.

Here are some recent pics of my brother-in-law and his son in Medford, OR - but the site/sounds are the same all over the country.

Woo hoo!
