Ed’s Car History: 2000 Ferrari 360 Modena F1

In late 2009, a unique opportunity presented itself. A friend called me and told me about a guy who couldn’t pay the repair bill on his Ferrari. He had the title but not the money for the repairs. He put me in touch with the owner (a musician) and I made him an offer. He […]

Mountain Drive: May 2011

We did another Mountain Drive in May of this year. It was an awesome turnout and a really great time. We showed a lot of our customers what their cars were capable of.We had a blast driving a 2005 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster and Megan got some great shots out of the roof. Here is Ted […]

Ed’s Garage: The SRI Warehouse

As car guys we know that the most important part of a house is the garage. As I was growing the business of Supercar Rentals and adding to the fleet of vehicles I went through several storage locations. At first I kept my cars at my parents’ house in Gwinnett County. I was in midtown […]

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 […]
