    is this a Porsche thread? ::confused2::

    My first P car was a 1989 no frills 911 cab, white w/ blue top.

    Next up, a '91 very red 911 cab c4 w/ black top. This car became famous for having the pop-up spoiler which activated over 30mph, I believe. I did a ton of mods to that car including a motorized reversible rear license plate. I also had
    1.5 million candle power spots fixed below the rear bumper used on people who like to barnstorm up your rear and start flashing their high beams at you. It also had also front and rear radar jammers lol.

    The work was done by pro-motorsports on. W 30th Street in NYC. Same place that Wolf of Wall Street guy ( Jordan Belfort) had all his cars done. We were neighbors on Dune Road in Westhampton Beach. I lived in the little house across the road from that psycho. I also dated his ex - wife Denise, but I digress way too much.

    they exaggerated about Belfort's Hampton's house in the movie. Even so, it's a pretty slamming house.

    1st pic is my little shack on the bay.
    2nd pic is Jordan Belfort's house on the beach (directly across the street)

    My deeded right of way (beach access) was through that lunatics property. He always had 5 or 6 white supercars in the driveway. Always. Those guys were like a cult. they had white cars only. I remember that he had a white Testarossa.

    And, all the girls were always naked at the pool or on the beach. The beach is private so you can do whatever you want. There must have been a rule where female guests couldn't wear any clothing. These were some of the hottest girls I've seen in my life. real Emperor Caligula stuff...hahahah

    "tasteful" mods = 425hp and 450ft lbs. @ the flywheel. Ridiculously fast car for what is. She only weighs ~3200 lbs. High 11's low 12's on street tires.

    Good money value car plus it gets 24mpg ( if you don't flog it too much)

    A white Testarossa looks fantastic and quite rare now. The red head statement comes from the cylinder heads which were painted red if anyone never knew.

    Values are good and climbing!

    Enzo and his designers had all kinds of names in mind for the cars and most were related to a various parts of a woman. Sometimes they had to realize that what might be good in Italian would never work in another language.

    I just think certain cars are meant to be certain colors, again my opinion.

    As for Ferrari values.....up, up and away! Try finding a mid fifties 410 Super America Ghia "Bat", they turn up but not that often.

    Yes. I started out in the front office (sales trader) and then did a complete 180 to buy side compliance. My last real job was Compliance Manager for a 15 billion dollar I.A. complex (advisory, hedge funds and a family office BD for the Levin - Loeb family). Yes, those Loeb's hahaha

    Long storing, boring: we were bought out by Carl Icahn and I didn't feel like working for that guy, so I took severance and now I mostly sit home and watch Pawn Stars.

    And, I still do some consulting because I have highly marketable skills but I had such a perfect job which I loved and I'm afraid I'll never replicate it. I really, truly and very literally had the best job of any person I know. I'm going to stop typing or start weeping...hehe

    + I have (2) connected businesses which I operate, sometimes not so well hahahaha
