Well, thats what I have started calling him. He has the best collection of cars in Bombay. Nobody can beat him. He spins the web just like its used to be spun. And that too only on weekends. Well if the Z3 wud have still been there, he wud be having 4 Spiders. Ok, agreed that the Z3 is not a Spider, but if a Ferrari Converible can be called a Spider, then why not the Z3. *

There was a time when Spiderman used to race along with his friends in the narrow Seven Bungalows lane. And race what??? The 355 Spider, the Z3 and the Yamaha Raptor 600. It used to be one hell of a race. Wheeling on the Raptor. Coming fast and skid-stopping just inches away from the Z3/355 would have got anybody's heart in his mouth. The popular race [if you can call it a race] is always between the Security car and Spiderman. You should see the way he drives to keep up with him. [GTO and Shantanu, you could take some tips from them abt driving the cars to their limits]. Then there are the usual Santro's, Pulsar's speeding behind him , [and sometimes even red Eliminators and purple Zens] trying to take a close look at the car.

But now the races have stopped. *Maybe Spiderman has become more mature and has decided not to race with lesser cars. And since there is nobody else who drives like him, he races alone. But now the 360 is not sounding good. And the 355 has become rare. The last time the 355 became rare, we thought that it was sold. Imagine waiting outside my building every Sat/Sun for *3 whole months and not seeing the Ferrari.

And then after 3 months, he returns. No, not with the 355. I was just about to leave my house. And my younger bro who had already gone down just 2 minutes before me came running and told me that I had just missed a 360 Spider. I was shocked. He told me that he just saw Sachin Tendulkar pass in a yellow Spider. I said what nonsense. That beggar was supposed to be given a red 360 Modena [not Spider]. We ran out of the building but then there was no sign of the Spider [and Man]. Then I realised one thing. The 355 wasnt seen for 3 months and now we see the 360 Spider. It has to be Spiderman. I told my bro "IT HAS TO BE SPIDERMAN." And I had made this guess just 2 months after the 355 stopped coming. We waited for an hour and then we hear it. It was the 360 Spider and the person driving was none other than Spiderman. I became very happy. He sold a Ferrari for a Ferrari.

2 weeks later [ Sunday], my bro left for church in the evening [5:30]. *When he just reached outside the building he seen the Spider and Man. Mass ended at 6:30 and my bro caught a rick on the way back home. And just 2 minutes after gettin into the rick, he hears it [the word of God/the Gospel......whatever you call it, its all the same]. But this time the sound is different from the 360. Its louder. And its sharp. And before he could put his head out of the rick to look behind it passes. *It was the 355. Spiderman had not sold a Ferrari for a Ferrari. *He had just added another Ferrari to his collection. And imagine the shock on my brothers face when he saw the 355.

A year back too, the 355 had become a rare phenomenon. And one day my brother gets a call from one of his friends saying that he saw Spiderman in a red SL500[can we call it a Spider please......after all its a convertible too]. So twice the 355 had become a rare phenomenon and both the times a new Spider was added.

And now back to the present. The 355 has become rare. Its been almost 2 months since any of us have seen it or even heard it. So does this mean theres gonna be another addition??? What will it be this time??? The 612?? The 575 M??? The 420 Modena??? God only knows this. But whatever it is, we all know thats IT IS gonna be a Ferrari. *Who cares what model.

HAIL SPIDERMAN *


Ferrari 360 Spider


Ferrari 355 F1 Spider


Mercedes SL500


BMW 5 []

Cant forget the day I had had the chance to sit in the magical driving seat of the 355 .. Feels something else to have the Prancing Horse logo on your steering . Not to mention the gearshift paddles .. Madening

I was like this...
