“Well, you’re taller so I guess you’ll take the f*ckin’ Maserati and he’ll take the Ferrari.” I heard the words and just nodded and quipped back ” Okay, that works for me…” and like that, I was locked into my first drive in a Maserati, much less one a significant value and notoriety. Thankfully, I have an acquaintance who’s both trusting and a bigger car nut that I could probably ever be. Why was I driving a Maserati? The 2012 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance but more to the point, the Italian car show, the Concorso Atlantico, on the Saturday preceding the Concours. The car in question? A 1971 Maserati Ghibli Spider, 1 of 125 ever made.
