I haven't seen one here, but it looks similar to the Priuus and Echo (toyota).

A while ago Dane said that he had never heard about it

foreign cars

Those cars are all over the place here. There are also tons of there cars I have never even seen in magazines. Nissan makes a wannabe Bentley Arnage over here. I say wannabe because I looks almost exactly like it but I see about 200 a day and haven:t seen but one Bently. I:ll post soem pictures when I get a chance. One thing I:ve learned is Japanese Internet sucks hard compared to home.

Dirk,

Hey, sorry for not posting in response but work has had me busy! What a great car! It looks like it'd be a blast to drive. Thank you for the post!

Forza,

Dane

I know what you mean Dane, it's kinda hectic on my job too right now.

But yes the car is pretty fun to drive, regarding it only has a 1000 cc engine, it responds pretty quick and still goes easelly 150-160 on the freeway.
It was pretty funny, my mom picked up the car from the garage in the morning and she drove straight to another shop to have here rims installed :green:

Eric,
I just checked it out and that is Dane's Car alright. I thought it was kind of funny that we hadn't heard from him in a while. I checked and his last post was Nov. 22nd.

For those of you wondering, this is the ad on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...&category=6212

Auction ends Dec. 31st. If he was going to sell, I wonder why he didn't post it here.

Isn't Dane in active military...seems like I recall him being a chopper attack pilot (and his wife also)?? Perhaps things are heating up overseas, and they'll be busy for a while, and thought it best to sell the 308 for now?

OK, I got in touch with Dane. He is NOT out of the Ferrari market. He is getting a Mondial so he has room for the growing family. That is why he is selling the GTB. I told him he needs to stop by and let us know these things! We WILL find out anyway. :green:
