When I was 18 my uncle bought a 78 308 GTS and gave me a ride. About 10 mins into it, he asked if I wanted to drive and I immediately said yes. I was hooked from that day. The light buzz of the transmission, the clicks of each gear and the roaring engine behind put a smile on my face greater than any other teenager could have.
A few years later he bought a 91 TR, gave me a quick ride around the block. He almost never drove it. The only time he did was to his garage for an oil change. He kept it for 7 years and said he only put 2500 km on it. When I asked him about reliability, he said he didn?t know it had 5000 km when he bought it in 98, always worked well and sold it last year. Now that im interested in buying a Ferrari, nobody I know owns one, Ironic isn?t it !
He ordered the F430 and I cant wait to see it !
I think it was because of my 308 experience that today, I will add it to my list of goals (now that I can afford it)
Bart, what you did was really cool ! Hats off to you ! It?s because of people like you that Ferrari owners get a good reputation instead of Fast and the Furious lines like ?More than you can afford pal?.Ferrari !?
