The name alone inspires images of sleek design, unparalleled quality and peak performance! Even for me, a non car buff, the sight of a Ferrari gives me a sense of excitement. Here’s an important point to keep in mind as you read this post: Ferraris are Ferraris mostly because of what’s on the inside.
Thinking back a couple of years, I remember a day when I
drove my Subaru Forester to a trailhead near my home to go for a nice afternoon
trail run. This particular trailhead is at one end of a very large parking lot
which also happens to be close to an upscale resort. When I arrived, there were
two large trucks offloading their special cargo -- priceless vintage
automobiles that were arriving for the start of the Northwest Passage Vintage
Rally. The two pictures in this post are of a Ferrari that was offloaded just
as I arrived. According to my automobile consultant (my son), this is a Ferrari
360 Spyder. I marveled at the sleek, exquisite beauty of this car as well as all
of the others I saw. It was obvious to me that the owners put a lot of loving
care into their cars! Good example for all of us to follow, whether we happen
to be proud owners of a Bently or a Bug.
As I stepped off on my run around the picturesque lakeside trail, I began to wonder how many of those car owners take care of themselves as well as they take care of their cars. As my run proceeded and my thoughts progressed, I reflected on what shape our cars would be in if our "car care system" was designed the same as our healthcare system. Here's what we would have:
The result is obvious: We would have a national fleet of clunkers. Ferraris
would be rare indeed.
Clunker or Ferrari? Your choice...
Bring out your inner Ferrari!
