While going for a jog this morning here in Chicagoland, right around mile 10 of my long journey I noticed a black Ferrari cruising on Lincoln Avenue. It just kept moving and I only got to see so much of it. I'm, sorry I couldn't grab my cell phone and shoot some quick pics. But to my surprise from the side and rear view I was impressed with the looks of it. I know it took me long enough but it was actually the first time I've seen a Ferrari California in the flesh. It was cruising with its top up too. Anyhow the reason I say this surprised me, is because all pics I've ever seen of it in print left me anything but excited about this machine. Perhaps I was just lucky to see it with its top up, because the rear end doesn't look as bloated aka fat when the top is up. And that bloated rear end has always been one of my biggest problems when it comes to the looks of the California.
