It has been a strange turn of events which have led me to receive a car earlier than expected. As of November of 2003, I was #11 at Ferrari of Denver. When the batch of first orders were being speced, #4 could not be reached. I was offered his spot with the understanding that if he wanted his spot back, it was his. Fair enough. I speced a BRP with Biscuit/Touring and Sport.
Well after a few months of thinking I would get my car early, #4 called and said he wanted the car and was happy with how it was ordered. So now I am back to spot #11.
When my time came around, I spec my car the same way. I expected a delivery sometime around the first of the year. I get a call from my salesman around the end of October saying that #4 has had a medical issue come up and is dropping off the list. If I wanted his spot, it was mine. Of course I did. The car shows up just before I am leaving for SEMA, so I can't pick it up until I return. I drop off my stage II exhaust so the car is ready when I get back. I finally had a chance to pick the car up yesterday. Words cannot express how pleased I am with the new car. The exhaust is loud, but cool. The ride is rough, but not too bad. I am also more than happy with the color. I asked the car not be detailed, so the paint could use a little work.
Of course, today is filled with rain, sleet and now snow, so the car will sit for a few days. I hope to detail it this weekend. Until then, here are some shots I took while the car sits in our bay.
