Barbie Ferrari in Red or White

All throughout my youth my friends would talk about their dream cars. They wanted muscle cars or cars with exotic Italian names that you only saw on TV.

One thought on “Barbie Ferrari in Red or White

  1. I guess I’m livin’ in the past because I definitely can’t embrace this new mini convertible…what is that a VW beetle? A Mini Cooper? I like the old Ferrari though…and as a Magnum fan, I’ve gotta go with the red. I didn’t know the Ferrari existed; all of my friends had the corvette. Not me though. I had the awesome off-road vehicle with horse trailer…I think I feel a post coming on.
