2005 Ferrari f430 Berlinetta.

I’m assisting in brokering the sale of a near mint condition 2005 Ferrari f430 Berlinetta. The car is not stolen, salvaged, wrecked, or damaged in anyway. It does have a lien on it. This is an excellent parts car for someone who already owns an f430 or for someone who is crafty enough with obtaining titles. There will be NO TITLE with the car, only a bill of sale. Please no tire kickers, serious interest only.

Am I turning into my grandfathers? Last year it was this: This was the old man’s dream:  power windows, power locks, power motor, plus style and gravitas. Karma: I don’t think he lusted after the falling apart piece of shitness of this particular example. He had the money, but had to wait for the old lady to die off before he…

Zinda, his face black, his eyes red. But not for long.

In our last episode, the great truck hunt was down to 3 finalists.  There was one clear favorite, lack of hemi notwithstanding. We took it easy yesterday, being wickedly hungover a bit peeved at Buck, our sales rep for a terse and kinda rude exchange Saturday about valuing a trade. Karma:  also because Lurleen, uh, hoped we would reconsider the utility…
