Ed’s Car History: 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo #2

Wednesday I finalized the purchase of a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe. I had been out of the ownership circle for too long and it is great to be back. The car is Blue Caelum over Avorio Lilium. The car just had a huge service done with a new clutch, throwout bearing, flywheel, rear main seal, […]

Ed’s Car History: 2003 Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG #2

After my first S55 was totaled there was not really any questions about what I wanted next – another S55. I found a Flint Gray/Black one with 59k miles. It had parktronic, distronic, and several other options that my first one did not have. The car was in great shape and happened to be at […]

Ed’s Car History: 2003 Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG #1

I have always loved the big AMG Mercedes cars. In 2003 when they released the supercharged 5.5 liter V8’s with 493 horsepower, I immediately wanted one. I found a very nicely kept 2003 S55 in Atlanta for sale by a private individual with about 90k miles in 2008 and bought it. I drove it about […]

Ed’s Garage at Home

I moved to a new home in Duluth in September of 2010. I was adamant that it have at least a 3 car garage (preferably 7) but Megan was adamant about a lot of other things. We ended up with a lovely home that has a 2 car garage. I still got to decorate it. […]

Ed’s Car History: 2003 Land Rover Discovery SE

I have always loved Land Rovers. It is a car that you always love in spite of its faults. This was a great looking white/tan 2003 SE. It had all of the options but it had some real quirks. I bought the car with about 60k miles and sold it about 18 months later with […]

Ed’s Car History: 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo

In 2007 I bought this car for a friend whom I owed a favor. He assured me that he would pay me back for it and, of course, never did. I didn’t see the car until 2009 but at that point I was the reluctant owner of a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo. It was probably […]

Ed’s Car History: 2000 Ferrari 360 Spider 6 Spd

In December of 2007 I bought a Ferrari 360 Spider. It was a Euro Car (There were no MY 2000) US cars. It was imported from Germany by AmeriSpec in 2001. Back then, 360 Spiders were bringing $150k over sticker in the US so it made sense. This car was Rosso Corsa over Crema with […]

Ed’s Car History: 2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

This was actually the Ferrari that I owned for the longest amount of time. I traded the Pozzi Blue 360 Modena for this in July of 2007. It was the only one in the world painted this color – Bordeaux Pontiveccio. I bought it with about 6k miles and sold it right at 17k in […]

Ed’s Car History: 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena F1

This was my first Ferrari. I bought it in December of 2006 with about 1,500 miles. It was one of the best looking Ferraris that I had ever seen. It was Pozzi Blue over Cuoio. It had Scuderia Shields, Daytona Seats, a Rear Challenge Grill, Navigation, and just about every factory option that was available. […]

Pictures of My First Gallardo in Atlanta by Andrew Carr & Jay Schipper

A couple of my very good friends took these pictures of my Gallardo in 2006. I thought they came out very well.
