Go To Robin's Nest >>
Spotted in the vicinity of Pismo Beach, California. Spot the... power plug sticking
out of the car on the right side of this image. We wondered what it is for?

Great information, f308888! This explains it, interesting.

I have one on my 308, bu it doesn't stick that far outside the grill! It is to maintain battery condition. If I dont use the car very often, the alarm system will eventually run the battery flat. The alarm is required to be active for insurance purposes. The battery conditioner allows a trickle charge to keep the battery topped up.

Yep, probably an engine block heater. Although, I don't know why you'd want to directly expose a Ferrari to a Wisconsin winter!

Found these pic's looking around at your "Robin's Nest". Nice photo's. I used to live on Oahu for 3 years from 85-88 so watching episodes of the show reminds me of being a teenager in for the plug...I belive the liscence plate on the front is from the University of Wisconson. Up there people plug their car's in to a garage outlet at night in the winter to keep the engine warm enough to start the next day.
