it's Xmas, Chapter 1

Well, I just came back from the Port of Oakland to pick up my first V12, a  GTE (#4823). So far, I am not regretting my decision to by a car based on pictures (and a professional inspection), without seeing it myself. I also feel like I am done with my charitable contributions this year (the port fees were exorbitant). I will post pictures from the pick up, but for now, enjoy the brief story of the acquisition. Read on, as the pictures load...

Congratulations to you Luke on the purchase and congratulations to all of us that live in the San Francisco Bay Area for the opportunity to spot another V12 Ferrari on the road.

Well done Luke!

I got mine last year in August (Series II, yours is a Series III).  

I have not been dissapointed.  The car is GLORIOUS, and driving it an insane pleasure, both sensual and historical.

I did just receive the bill for my first major piece of mechanical work (brake circuit, discs, pads, brake pump, etc...) and I will most definetely not be showing it to my wife.

Keep on posting!

Julio Batista


P.S.  How do I stick a picture in this post? thanks.

Hi Julio,

If you have pictures loaded on a server, you can put the location of it on the "optional url link" space, and it will appear with your message.

If you want to share pictures of your car on the owner's gallery, I'd be happy to post them there along with the story ahout it. you can e-mail it to me.
