They could have sold me a fake Ferrari - I wouldn't have known the difference from the real thing. I am that dumb about cars. Of course, I have no desire for a Ferrari...
Nervy bunch, huh?

About the book list - I'm waiting! And the cream is working beautifully. (The fact I'm in a chlorinated pool twice a week doesn't help with the dry skin.)

Beth said...

I would SO buy a fake one!!!

The best part is that "The buyers are all Ferrari enthusiasts who knew they were buying a counterfeit classic". Well, to each is own, I suppose :)

What people won't think of to make a quick buck. Well, not so sure about quick, but a lot of bucks.

Was all over the news here too.....bet they were all RED!

Lynda said...

Dreadful! And of course they were red, what is the point of a Ferrari in any other colour? I always laugh when I see one in Australia - you aren't permitted to drive faster than 110km/pr anywhere... even an old clunker can do that.

How true!
The old show-offs really got their comeuppance, didn't they!
Except for the Autobahn in Germany where there's no speed limit - up to now, but lots of BMW and Mercedes drivers going at 260 - where do you get to drive the thing at the speed it's been built for? GM

I am sad and desperate.

I would take one.

Trish said...

Beth...working on a list...in all the free time I (don't) have....I knew a guy once who had a porshe with a VW engine, apparently they can be interchanged and someone had wanted the engine for something else, so he got a really poor performing Porshe for a song...it's all about image...except he kept telling everyone that there was nothing under the hood *cough*

Beth, I know what you mean...

elPadawan, that kind of mystified me too, I mean, WHY?

Dawn, it seems a lot of work doesn't it...easier just to steal the things, the traditional way...

Lynda, no doubt, Henry Ford may have wanted any colour as long as it is black, but with a Ferrari...has to be RED.

GM...the autobahn, there's another weird place...

Jocelyn, but where you live you could only drive it about two months a year...

Trish: Yeah, it's not quite like picking up a fake Gucci bag is it.
