360 Spider arrived this AM!

Yellow/ black, 6 speed, tubi spider arrived after a 3 day cross country trip. Thanks, Gary Almond for transporting the car. The car is beautiful, better than expected. :green: Took it out for a spin this morning and then again this afternoon. The sound with the top down is intoxicating but not as loud as I had expected. I should be a chiropractor because everyone I drive past gets whiplash! :lol: This is my first convertible ever and what an experience it is. Thanks everyone for responding to my previous questions and I am sure there will be many more stories to tell.

Congrats! That is awesome and I love the color you picked. It makes the 360 look mean. After you put a couple 1000 miles on it this weekend, eat and sleep in it, let us know how it turns out.

Awesome! I can only imagine how you're feeling right now with your new acquisition to your collection!

To do with your camera...I'm assuming you probalby got a USB cable that came along in the box with the camera? There should probably be some sort of plug on the camera where it should fit while the other end plugs into the computer. Then you may need to either install software to upload it or just copy the files directly off of your memory card in the camera to a folder on your hard drive. Unless your camera has some sort of docking station like thing, then you will have to plug the dock in...but if not, just follow the above.

Once you've gotten the files off the camera, you may have to resize them to post them here on the forum. To do that either use photoshop or MS paint. Phtoshop will allow you to define the exact size, wheras paint will have you reduce the picture in percentages. If you have more questions, ask away, can't wait to see your pictures.

Yeah, I wish it were that easy. The camera is having problems interfacing with both my desktop and laptop. I will contact Minolta once I get some time and sort this out. I promise I will post these pics ASAP. I will be getting the soon to depart 996 turbo back tomorrow from the shop so I will get some pics of the two together. The Viper is still at the shop to address some issues with starting. I hope to get it back soon. Its an amazing contrast between the 360 the Viper. They are both so viceral in totally oposite ways.

Well Doc...if you are in Raleigh right now with the car, then I guess I'll just have to come and use my camera to take some pics! :wink:

I would love to hear more about that Viper in the Lounge area. I'm guessing it is a Hennesy(sp?) Viper with 650 horse power.

Hmm, that's no fun haivng interface problems. I'm assuming you're running XP if you have a PC? Well, goodluck, and hope you can get a hold of Minolta to fix your problem.

Finally got it to work. Took some pics of my cars with my cousin's Viper, my GTS is in the shop. I had to download the driver off the web. XP was supposed to have the driver which it didn't. :green:
