Never got to drive or deliver one of those. The guy that I delivered the F1 to
(and drove it nearly 12 miles to his house) had a building (something like 150'
x 40') filled with Ferraris, Lotuses and one boring, stock-looking, Ford GT that
he said he had torn completely down and rebuilt to his specs... 800+ HP
according to him. I asked him what the hell you'd do with that much HP in a car
that was so light in the ass end and he just smiled and said, "Have a lot
of fun." That is my kinda guy. He gave me a ride back to my truck in an
Enzo, by the way. It was quite a day.

thats awesome...most of the cars I hauled were wrecked
I pulled a skateboard though, so usually the wrecked car or two was just to fill
out the trailer after picking up some steel coils or whatever else is heavy but
doesn't take up a lot of space...anyway I was somewhere in SoCal chaining down a
nearly brand new car that had been rear-ended and was smashed up pretty
badly...this little old lady comes walking by on the sidewalk and she stops and
says to me, oh what a shame...I said, yeah, and kept working..then she asked me,
did they have insurance? how the hell would I know lol wtf?? so I turned to her
and said, No! and now they're in JAIL! she said, Oh my! how terrible! or
something like that, I just nodded and went back to my chains and binders and
she wandered off...lol idk maybe ya had to be there...

I miss hauling cars in a lot of ways. Our bread and butter was hauling Lambos
and Lotuses out of the San Diego port and also Lotuses out of South GA. Got to
meet a lot of rich and famous folks. We delivered Daniel Cabrerra's (pitcher for
the Oriels at the time) new Benz to him at Camden Yards, delivered a Benze to
Javaris Crittenton (NBA) at the Lakers training center a few weeks after their
summer camp started when he was a rookie, delivered a Maybach to Kenyon Martin
(Denver Nuggets) and a whole host of millionaires and billionaires that are low
profile types. We used to get some nice cash tips, too... one guy in La Jolla
tipped us $600 and offered to let us use his hot tub overlooking the ocean from
his cliff-side home. I've got enough stories for at least one book from the one
year I did enclosed auto transport.
