motor temperature

I just bought a Mondial cabriolet 1988 and the oil and cooling water temperature are not exceeding 70 degerees celsius. Pretty low I would say, although it's winter here in Holland and the outside temperature is around 0 degrees celsius. What do you think, what should I do?

Bart- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Sounds normal to me if you are driving short distances. If the water temperature does not go higher in city traffic, you may have a sensor sender problem or a stuck thermostat. Cleaning the sensor connector may help, but a good tech should be able to isolate the problem easily.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
