Back to School = No more driving the Ferrari to work

Yesterday was the last day of summer vacation for my children. In addition to making it a hectic day filled with last minute back to school activities it was also the last week day in my year with the Ferrari that I could use the Ferrari as my exclusive daily driver. I have not been driving the car much recently. With the date for selling it rapidly approaching I have not wanted to spend much time in it. Maybe if I don’t drive it I will forget how nice it is. Driving the car to work, during rush hour, parking it until driving home, in rush hour, is not the best way to appreciate a Ferrari, or any sports car.

I am ready to sell it. I have one track day scheduled for mid September. My plan is to put the car up for sale after the track day. I am no longer worried about the car selling or recouping my investment. I may lose a bit I may not. Either way the experience of owning and driving the car was worth it.

It is a bit too early for looking back and critiquing how I could have had a better year with a Ferrari but one thing is clear. If I had to do it over I would drive the car more.
