Ferrari Ownership Experience Take 1

Time to try and encapsulate my Ferrari ownership experience into one sentence. Without me telling you there would be no way for you to know that I typed that sentence then sat and stared out the window for quite some time. That did not work so I wrote a bunch of words on a white board. Here is what came from that exercise. Scary, eye opening, hopefully repeated, exhilarating, fulfilling, gratifying, exclusionary, frustrating, disappointing, embarrassing, and expensive. My Ferrari experience has been like riding on and living in a super exclusive rollercoaster. Ultimately, after the rush, after all the hyperbole owning a Ferrari has its ups and downs, pluses and minuses. For me the pluses outweigh the minuses, not by a huge margin but by enough that I want to repeat the experience.

For me no “Ferrari Lifestlye” emerged. Honestly, I am grateful, if my character was so shallow as to be redefined by a car I owned for a year I would be disappointed.
