Bucketful of Fun

If you are in the market for a new Ferrari convertible, you have only two choices: the $203,000 California and 458 Spider for $263,000. Both have V-8 engines and retractable hard tops, but offer vastly different characters: the easy-going California or the full-frontal-attack 458.

I thought it would be illuminating -- and a bucketful of fun -- to drive the convertibles back to back during five days in Los Angeles.
