Golf Anyone? Ian Poulter Ferrari Collection

ian poulter

I’ve loved golf for as long as I can remember. I started playing at Victoria Park Golf Club (soon to become our version of New York’s Central Park) in the early 70’s when a mate and I went for a hit and giggle. Shame then that I didn’t achieve the heights of Ian Poulter. Wouldn’t mind a Ferrari or three.

Ian Poulter
One of the best ‘small’ collections of Ferrari

I joined Redcliffe Golf Club in 1981 and it’s been a passion ever since. I’ve sponsored events at Redcliffe since 1983 and it continues unabated today

I’ve played all over the world and went to the 1990 US Masters with my good mate Peter Senior as his guest.

So I was flicking through a YouTube video of mine recently and stumbled across an interview with British golfer Ian Poulter. Poulter has arguably one of the better ‘small’ collections of Ferrari vehicles and memorabilia I’ve seen. My only question, to the inestimable Peter Senior, is why he hasn’t got something similar?

Poulter has 14 Ferrari’s in his collection (and some other expensive cars too) and has purpose-built a room in his Orlando Florida home to accommodate them. And if you’re thinking of a Corporate Function, he does rent the space but don’t ask me how much.

Oh, before you click the link and play the video, please accept my humble apologies for the ‘interviewer’ His introduction must be the most annoying I’ve ever heard.  But once you get past Smee, it’s a tour de force of very expensive Italian cars.

Anyhow, have a look at this. And mind you don’t drool on yourself

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.

thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
