Checking in with F1

BREAKING NEWS: F1A Says OK for Celebratory Donuts
.... providing you are a winner
..... making sure you don't delay any podium time....
SEE the article in Autoweek

My 73 year old Dad's one true love and lust is the Ferrari logo on race day. Last week, he gathered around his children, grandchildren, and dogs to watch RUSH as he burnt the crap out of some steaks. This man only travels two places: 1. Ft Myers, FL, and 2. to Formula 1 races. "The farthest I have ever been for a race is France. I'll never go to that whore house again. (mutters mutters)." Yet, while he choked on the fact that I bought a foreign car almost a month ago, he has no problem rooting for his homeland Ferrari (100% Sicilian). I will never forget the look on his face when his youngest grandson asked about the Hunt versus Lauda finally. He even brought out pictures of his own 1965 Ferrari. Here is the great man's list of Ferrari's and Porsche he worked very hard to provide his garage space with:

  • 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS Red
  • 2000 911 Porsche Black with Orange Interior (the only one he ever let me drive)
