Whats sweeter than a JEM7VWH?

How about a JEM7VWH and a 348/TS convertible Ferrari?

I just got back from Vegas and one of my dreams came true!! I got to rent a Ferrari for a day and drive in friggin luxury!! I totally smoked a Viper AND a Vette on the freeway while I was heading to Guitar Center. I have never gotten to drive a car that could do 45mph in 2nd gear and still have 3 gears to go!! Hell I did not shift into 4th until I started racing the Viper on the freeway!!! What a rush!!!!! Let me tell you it sure was awesome pulling into Caesar's or the Hardrock or the Bellagio and the sign says the Valet was full but when I pulled up in the Ferrari they parked it RIGHT up front for me no problem!! Driven' that baby up and down the strip and downtown was a blast. I drove her ALL day. That was the longest day in Vegas (28 hours with no sleep) and most of it was in the car I would say!!! lol

Anyhow here is a pic with the VWH:



Here are some other pics:

)350 is reasonable to play with that toy for a day

you really should have had white clothes on, with some huge gold ring to match the guitar's gold hardware.

(a couple of hookers in white should help too

Well before I get flamed for the cost of renting this beauty let me first say that it was a gift (sorta belated birthday present from my mom). I told her that I wanted to rent one and she called ahead and had it waiting for me!!!! aint moms cool!?!?!??! LOL

The cost for the 348/TS was $470 a day (thats nothing compared to the 360 Modena that was $1570 a day!!!) (Now THAT is a sweet FAST ride!!)

I would have to say that nothing could beat that rush aside from being onstage in front of 10,000 people probably!!! Most people at my work were like "Why would you waste all that money for one day of a car rental?" And I told them "Hey you could blow that in the casino in a day (or an hour) and have nothing to show for it. I have the experience of a lifetime (plus pictures to go with it!!) lol

I love Vegas... lots of eye candy... hate the gold digging casino-club rats though.
I do remember seeing that car, or one similar to it at the Hard Rock not too long ago. I honestly don't remember when the hell because I slept about 2 hours yesterday after working a night shift, and I'm at work again and I can't think straight. But it was within the last couple weeks.

Yeah the place I rented it from said that usually that car is rented almost every day of the week. I was surprised though to see that during the 4 days we were there there were NO other Ferrari's on the road!! That made it even cooler!! You saw EVERY other type of beautiful car but no other Ferrari's. Has anyone ever seen a stretched Hummer limo?!?!!? It was unreal!!! That and te stretch Excursion limo. Man they had party lights and disco balls and all sorts of stuff on the inside!!! Those people were PARTYING!!!!!! lol

You wanna know the strange thing? It's cheaper to rent a limo than it is to get a taxi from the airport here. Did you see how them cabbies drive? They WANT to hit people, and they try!
I've seen the Excursions out and about... but haven't seen any hummer limos that I can remember. Those excursions are frickin huge though.

Yeah those friggin taxi drivers were lunatics!! There were plenty of times where they seemed like they were trying to hit the Ferrariand I basically just laid back and gave them room (it would have been MY insurance that would have covered damage to the car!!) Yeah I had never seen (or even heard of) a Hummer limo stretched limo before!! BUT if you would see it anywhere it would be in Vegas!! lol

SWEET PICS DUDE!!!!! I love Ferrari's! I seen a ton of em when I was in LA this summer. Creamfest everytime one drove by. Being from a county of 40,000 I don't get to see many/any Ferrari's. I loved it!
We snapped this picture on Sunset



I was pretty impressed actually being that close to one. I mean i've been near them before but this felt different. :-)

I love the pics of, man! If I could, I wouldn't think twice about spending that for a day of driving one. Just knowing that your driving one. CONGRATS!!
Oh! Seen a big black Hummer limo dropping someone off at the BET awards while I was there too. HUGE!!!

Man, you should just drive through any Dell parking lot about 3 years ago. Ferrari parking lot! You'd even catch some Vipers, Lamborgini's, and Porsche's. Pretty sweet! Of course that was at the peak of the tech boom, so who knows if they still have them. Plus, I don't work for Dell anymore, so I don't care. I only know 1 person who I worked with at Compaq that has a Viper.

If I had the money I'd do what Rikk did. I respect that. The fastest I've ever driven is 140 (in a 1964 Merc on a narrow two lane dike at sunset), so with a vehicle like that, I'd have a blast.

My current truck will only go 95-97 MPH before the gas governer will cut off the fuel. I guess that's not too bad for a 7000 pound truck.

I don't know about that one, that F1 lookalike nose just doesn't fit. Almost looks like a spaceage Batmobile or something.
