I was driving by my local gas station the other day here in Silicon Valley (about 2 miles south of Stanford University) and was the funniest thing.

Some guy had parked his Ferrari Spider F355 (original list price close to $100k) at the gas station with a big for sale sign on it.

I had to do a double take to make sure it was really a Ferrari. I had two reactions: 1) Only in Silicon Valley would you see something like this, 2) Must be a sign of the times. Maybe Ferrari owners need a bailout too… 🙂

Victor – this is VERY funny. Did you call the guy. Maybe we can get a Ferrari for a good price 🙂

I didn’t call they guy, but probably should have! But I like driving my very used, fully depreciated, Toyota.

Pretty bad. The guy must be broke because he couldn’t even afford to put it on Cars.com for $50 or a Ferrari site for $100? Either that or he has no concept of marketing.

@Joshua Long:

Makes you wonder right? I mean even ebay motors is free to post an ad.

I seriously doubt that ferrrari need a bail out this may of just been a wind up and the car was not acturlly for sale. I agree the owner of the car if he wished to sell would have had a better chance advertising in other ways to keep the car abit safer.

To reiterate Obama….America has to come to terms with reality, and learn to live within their means. I am a ferrari lover but if I know for a fact that if I own one but dont have the money to afford the maintanence or anything, I would not buy one in the first place. This beauty deserves to be parked at a concourse for ferrari enthusiasts, not in a gas station “for-sale” spot :/
