The Ferrari California 30

The parking valets at my Santa Monica hotel know me by name. I’ve stayed here a number of times, but that isn’t the reason for my popularity. No, it’s clearly the Ferrari (FERI) effect.

“Good morning, Mr. Harper. Will you be taking out one of the cars today?” An expectant smile. Any excuse to fire up one of the two Ferrari convertibles parked prominently out front (and the expected tip). Together, these two red cars are worth more than $600,000.
