Unrestored 550 with 10,000 miles. Think JJ Best will pre-approve me?

I just looked it up; Jerry's net worth is approx. $820 million.
So why's he dumping his toys??

You gotta love an original 4 cam Carrera. Those motors are amazing.

Maybe he feels guilty for hoarding... he owns a couple other 550s i believe..nothing wrong with wanting to share with your fellow billionaires.

Switching up his collection, pretty normal actually.
He has been going more varied lately for cars..

$10m is pretty small money if your talking ferrari's

He'd need all that and another $5m to buy a GTO..

I see he's not selling his 917 as its value alone exceeds $10 mil

I don't know if it has already been discussed, but he owns a 90. Shows up in his "comedians in cars getting coffee" web show episode with Jimmy Fallon. Maybe he will use some of the money to replace the missing Hella lamp or buy a bigger boat.

GTOs are actually $35-50MM+ now but further makes your point

A friend of mine has 85 Ferraris in his collection. He never drives them. Collector cars are better investment for guys like this than the stock market.
