Appreciation of Goose's Enzo Appreciation

Post by hugodrax » Thu Nov 30, 2017 1:58 pm

I have slowly come to the realization that our friend really likes the Ferrari Enzo and would shout his love from the rooftops. I have a friend that knows Luca de Montemezolo and I asked him to pass on your admiration for the car. I'll let you know if I get a response.

Thanks, but I doubt it would result in me being gifted with an Enzo. Purchase of the Enzo was by invitation only, and only to those whom Ferrari had on file, having purchased a Ferrari in the past. Also, I think the Enzo, 1st introduced in 2002, is out of production. Used ones sell for 3,000,000. So, the best I can do is a $30 Mattel Matchbox scale model, and dream.

I passed in your complement to the CEO of the time assuming that, as a gentleman, you would want your appreciation known free of charge, simply to uplift his day. I did not know that you expected pelf for your endorsements. Please accept my apologies.

I understand that mint Fierro's are going for around ten grand. They're sort of like Enzo's. Put some prancing horse badges on it and nobody will even know it's not the real McCoy.

I like those cars. Black and gold is better.

Enzo is a term of endearment for a life long Washington Captitol's player. Therefore, I hate it.

20.The Vatican had an Enzo

Ferrari made 400 of the eponymous tribute supercars, sold the first 399, then donated one to the Vatican for charity. Somehow, the pope didn’t drive it, thereby throwing John Paul II's reputation as the most baller pope into serious question

If you find a source for those prancing horse badges, Fred, let me know.

Enzo.

OK. I had a good one but forgot what it was while waiting for the interwebs click uni*n to allow me to enter text.

Ok. I waited a little bit to see if it would drift back in.

However, it hasn't.

So.

Oh look! Post count bump.

Why can't we all just get together in a spirit of brotherhood and thank Goose for so selflessly sharing all of the pictures and videos of actual Enzos, die-cast model Enzos, and video simulations of Enzos regardless of whether anyone wanted to see them? It was only for your best interests, people. Show some gratitude.

It took dedication. Don't you people respect dedication?
