    F430 Fire

    I received the following email that included the following pics today. It was written by a friend of a friend.

    "So my friend Ray goes to Santa Barbara on Monday to spend the afternoon driving six exotic cars in a kind of demo program. The cost was something like $1100 for the afternoon but you get to drive a Porche turbo, a Bentley GT, a Maserati Spyder, a Jag XK8, a Lamborgini Gallardo and a Ferrari F430.

    Mid way through the afternoon, the Ferrari, with 750 miles on it, springs an oil line and burns to an 18 inch high pile of melted aluminum."

    Insane! I guess those claims of Ferrari workmanship go up in smoke!

    Same here

    These pictures look kinda unreal to me, like some CGI F/X in a Bruckheimer movie.

    Of course! Because all Ferraris catch fire sooner or later, anyone with half a brain buys a Porsche...
