Yes, the real sports car is a Ferrari....
I have been reading and seeing great pictures of your Ferrari's in this Forum many time but this is the first time i posted my story.
And yes, the real sports car is a Ferrari. I was a big fan of the Lotus Esprit for a long time and owned the Lotus Esprit S4, 94 for the past ten years. I regularly hit top speed of around 180 mph nearly every other weekend on the expressway in Bangkok, Thailand ( where I live ). I love it. For that price and that performance, nothing can beat it.
Until, about six months ago, I saw this yellow Ferrari 308 GTB, 1976 at one of the local Used car lot and right away I knew I had to drive it. And I did and the performance was not at its best. It was not as fast as the Esprit, But I had this weird feeling that I enjoyed the car so much. So I bought it ( for around $60,000US, there should be about 10 308's in thailand). And I put it in Ferrari Thailand dealer to put its performance to its original. Then later I found out that it was a much perferred model fiberglass, drysump, and carbulator. Ever since I got the car back, I have been driving it everyday. I love the car so much I tried to find any excuse to get out of the house so that i can drive the Ferrari. I do supermarket shopping, pay for phone bill, taking kids to school. It is the best fun car ever. It gives you that firm race car ride, firm gearing and shifting. The driving position is just perfect it make you want to race.
I still have the Esprit, parking still, but what i have plan for the Esprit is to give to my son when he learn how to drive and want a sport car. The Esprit should be great for beginner until his experience grow then he can appreciate the real sports car, Ferrari.
