Rather than hijack the thread on bargain classics I thought it would be prudent to start a new one.
I think I'm coming to a crossroads with current fleet and over the last few weeks have been considering changing a few things. Problem is I can't make my mind up. "Nothing new there then". The 308 was always my dream car, the Martini integrale runs it a close second. Coupe, well I can always come across another at some point.
Do I sell the 308, integrale and Fiat Coupe and look for a 456.
I can't do this until I get the 308 all finished (I've the belts to change, clean the engine up and change a bulk ring in the box) and this will probably be the summer then. If I go for the 456 it is going to be harder for me to look after because I do all my own work. And it will really only be run as a high days car to ake the family out for a run in.
Do I keep the 308, (it's more part of the family now), sell the integrale and Coupe, and go for a Maserati 3200GT, (Keeping it Italian of course), and LPG it so I can run it on an almost regular basis. If I do this I get to keep the 308. Plus I happen to think if you squint a little the 3200 is like a smaller version of the 456, and should be easier to look after (in theory).
Or, keep the 308 and the integrale, sell the Coupe, LPG the 308 (yes still thinking about that one) so I can use it on a more regular basis, but then I can't take the family out in it.
Or, Keep things as they are.
I know no-one can make this decision for me but I just thought I'd share my thoughts in the hope of some divine insperation, and to give us something else to chat about
I did put a post up over on Maserati Life about the 3200 but there's surprisingly very little about them on the site.
