A good example of what happens when you have to much money, you simply don't care and don't appreciate the beauty of what you have. Life isn't about having what you want, it'* about wanting what you have.

That Ferrari is a great looking ride (too an old guy like me). It would be a ball to restore it. On the flip side, looks like rust happens even in places like Dubai, lots of surface rust seen in the pics.

I like your commentary Dan!

Sure cars rust in Dubai, anywhere near the sea has this problem, I used to make most of my living repairing rust damaged cars over here.
I spent a few hours in Dubai waiting for a flight connection, my main memory is the smell, I'd want more than a Ferrari to drive to make me stay there.
