Just was chatting with Bill on IM. That is one excited dude. Here is what he got from the wife (not his car...but almost identical):

Yay! A F-Car.

Good stuff, I'd probably go for something with less history but i will admit you can't beat the 80's style (even if you can beat 80's electrics)

Congrats on your new Ferrari....... What ever you do, don't race your SLK55 in the 1/4 mile cuz the 55 will take it.
