A quick look under the hood of this week’s Monday Matchup reveals some high horsepower musings on fast cars and a fashionable emotion this time of year: love.

It just may be a metaphor for all the things rolling around in the head of Madigan, our Customer Care team member who brought to life this week’s pairing of a Sheaffer Ferrari 100 Red and Caran d’Ache Infra Red ink. After all, it is Valentine’s Day week. And she’s a bookworm engaged to a gearhead. Maybe that explains the ticking clock and mechanical heart that looks like something built for the Tin Man.

A collaboration between Ferrari and Sheaffer, the Sheaffer Ferrari 100 Red fountain pen features a sleek design and stainless steel Sheaffer nib available in Medium or Fine. The postable metal pen is fittingly accented by the classic Ferrari emblem on the cap. The Caran d’Ache Infra Red fountain pen ink is bold and bright — a great color for penning love letters or writing speeding tickets.

As for the F. Scott Fitzgerald quote; well, if love can’t solve a breakdown, try calling AAA.

The Sheaffer Ferrari 100 Red is available at GouletPens.com for $55. Caran d’Ache Infra Red fountain pen ink is available in a 50ml bottle for $32 or as an ink sample for much less.
