Malibu - Two Ferraris in Five Minutes

First spotting: 1:45 pm, Monday, September 27, 2010.
Ferrari 612.
Von's parking lot, Sunset and Pacific
Coast Highway.

As the owner parked and left his car, I had the courage to walk
around it and admire it. Suddenly, I heard a strange humming
sound emanating from the car. I assumed that it was some kind
of an alarm that would alert the owner if I got too close.

Second spotting: 1:50 pm. Monday, September 27
, 2010.
Ferrari F450-7, The
Getty Villa parking garage entrance.

I joined the crowd of gawkers. The owner was justifiably proud of
what appeared to be his new toy. The top was down, so you could
see inside. I said that I had now seen two Ferraris in five minutes
and asked if everyone in Malibu owned a Ferrari. He smiled.

Until my two recent spottings in Malibu, this is as close as I ever
got to a real Ferrari. I have a friend in New York who keeps one at
his place in Water Mill on Long Island. He has offered to take me
for a ride, but I never managed to get there.

Now back to Malibu and Ferraris.

A personal footnote. If there is a Malibu Ferrari owner who would like to offer
me a ride, I would welcome it.
