I really think Red is the right color for this. I could get it in black, but I really think red is the best color. I mean if you are going to buy a car that says LOOK AT ME!, it shouldn't be boring. I was surprised the dealer had them in stock, ready to drive home. You do have to be careful, first time drivers have an amazingly high rate of losing control in the first few weeks. The recommendation is to take delivery at a safety driving course, and work with an instructor until you get a feel for it. Acceleration is painfully abrupt, braking is immediate and violent. It is a challenge to get in and out of.
It is a total fantasy car, after years of what I should have, or what is reasonable. Why not? After all we are not going to live forever and we can't take it with us.
For years I thought it would be a Rolls Royce, when I was growing up I remember the first time I saw one. The elegant flowing lines. The new one's look like a box, big, square, shapeless (well I guess a box is a shape.) The are comfortable inside, but the style leaves a lot to be desired, and unlike the good old days, they will paint them in gaudy colors, instead of stately greys, black, white, cream, and brown (not the best color.)
Oh, by the way, it is April 1st, known in many parts of the world as April Fools Day, a day for minor practical jokes. Nope, I didn't, I wouldn't it costs like $15,000 to have the oil changed in that thing at the dealer. And I can get in, but it takes two people to drag me back out of it and then I land on the ground like a fish fresh off the hook.
I realised it was an April first joke but had you have not said so, I would have commented something about your age and getting out of the car.ReplyDelete
It is not a car for old fat men. The Ferrari California is.Delete
I'd have to get on my hands and knees and crawl into it, and then contort my way out of it. I'd probably spend more time doing that than actual driving!ReplyDelete
Yes, but it would be so much fun for those two minutes of driving.Delete
A friend of mine that used to come to the Raven Resort would always break out his Rolls Royce in the summer to just come to the pool. He was very eccentric. I personally think a Maserati has a smoother drive.ReplyDelete
I like eccentricDelete
That made me chuckle. I saw many of these when I was in Italy. To add to the negatives, you need special help getting them off of the ferries on Lake Como so they don't drag bottom.ReplyDelete
I can only imagine the horror as they drag bottomDelete
Oh, you had me going right until the end -- hook, line and sinker!ReplyDelete
none of these sound like deal breakers to me. And the color matches your eyes.ReplyDelete
You would look so good in oneDelete
A red car looks so posh. I'd be too nervous to drive this. Lol!ReplyDelete
If I had it, I probably wouldn't drive it.Delete
