Why, of course that's my Enzo

Ferrari-Enzo-Sara.jpgMy daughter Sara, who lives with her husband Stefano in Milan, is pictured above next to a Ferrari Enzo casually parked by a restaurant in a small Italian town. After taking a cell phone photo of Sara near the Enzo, a waiter comes running out saying, "Sir do you need your keys?"

The temptation must have been great...

  1. I'd be tempted to get my picture taken next to it but would be too nervous to even get near the thing. I'm sure the owner watches it like a hawk....unless he's got 3 others back at home. LOL

    I wouldn't mind owning a Ferrari if I was rich but would problably always be worrying about people like this who just want a quick pic. Girls tend to wear jewelery and carry pocketbooks. It would be likely a loose fitting bracelet or buckle from the bag would rub up against the car and they would think nothing of it.

    This happened to me once with the neighborhood kids taking snow off my car to make snowballs and having their snap buttons from the gloves scratch my paint. So its possible. and I tend to stay a respectable distance.

    But if you're brazen enough to pull it off, it does make a cool pic.

  1. You never know what strangers will do with classic cars. Especially people who aren't really into cars.

    Some hoodlum will want to ride his skateboard down an attractive looking ramp like that.

    I was giving a colleague a tour of my garage once, during a party, and he decided the hood of my vintage car was a good place for him to take a load off - him wearing steel riveted jeans and all.

  1. "Sir do you need your keys?"

    Why yes, thank you. And here's a $100 tip for your attentiveness....a nice dream, but the jail time would not be fun. No where to hide in that car.
