New Member Hello....

As a new member here, a big howdy, to all.....I have just acquired an '86 Mondial 3.2 Coupe, my first adventure into Ferrari land. I came upon the car for sale quite by accident and desires from my youth quickly took over after seeing and driving the car for the first time. Some would say that it is not a rational purchase, the car is old, will not appreciate in value, will likely give my insurance agent, who doubles as my wife, fits and makes me appear as yet another example of a male in mid-life crisis.

But as an outlet for one that loves to tinker, explore the inner workings of a beautiful machine and is soothed by the cacophony created by the belts, gears, intake and exhaust notes....this car could not have found a better home.

A few images:

I sure do feel a lot more like I do now than when I first got here....
