12 year love affair

just getting home from a nice dinner up in West Hollywood,,with some friends,,,im wide awake,,just hooked up the battery tender to the 328,,,i have had this machine for exactly 12 years today,,,and it has been and still is,,a definete love affair...i have driven this Ferrari for 68,000 miles,,,in 12 years,,and i can honestly say,,,that each and everytime,,,was absolutely a success in happiness,,,for me..,.,getting in my 328 ,,is stepping into a different world,,the smell,,,the feel,,,the feedback,,,the sound,,,,all add up to an experience,,that no other machine in the world (less another F Car)..can provide,,,i have always felt that special aura that comes over me,,,,while im in the drivers seat,,,,,,maybe my brain has tricked my body into feeling that certain way,, each and everytime im in the 328,,,but i believe its .,more than that...i didnt plan it this way,,,it just happened,,for the first several years...i wanted to feel that special Ferrari feel,,,often,,like it was some kind of drug,,hence,,,i put most of the miles on the car back then."..these days."..(thank you G.Allman),,i have to be in the mood,,and ready to be overcome by that Ferrari feel...and it doesnt come nearly as often,,,but when i do go for a drive,,,its still there,,..it takes some days of not driving,,,,and then,,,ill be in the truck,,,and ill start to think about what a nice day it would be ,,to take the car out,,,my heart starts to beat a little faster,,,and that addicitve feel starts to come over me,,,i get home,,i get ready,,,and i get in the car,,..and go...sometimes the drive is short,,,and there are other times,,when im in the car all day,,,not wanting to quit !!!today was the not wanting to quit day...matter of fact...if i had not broke that motor mount,,,,its such a bitchen night out here,,,i would be driving instead of typing,,,,...but ,,the car,,,freshly washed,,is safe in my garage..waiting for the next time we can get together,,,,

Well, Brett,...sorry to hear that you are typing this instead of driving, but I assure you this makes someone else a bit happy to read your comments.
Sounds like a healthy relationship there.

Speaking for myself, if I were back in LA, I would most likely acquire a roadster to enjoy the climate of Southern California (Lala land, as wetpet would say). w/ smiles Jimmy

G.Allman! Hero!

What a shame his brother didn't hang around long enough.

Cool to read your impressions. Keep enjoying that 328!

A great player - even with a continuously famous name, he doesn't get enough respect...
