I suppose I should introduce myself

Now a Ferrari owner!

Never thought that I would say that but I just purchased a 1997 Rosso Corsa F355 spider 6 speed.

I'm a bit of a gearhead, used to own a dyno shop and have built forced induction systems and installed plenty of programmable engine management systems.

It's funny, I am excited and afraid at the same time. I know I can deal with anything the F355 can throw at me but I also know that my pockets probably are not as deep as many F car owners.

I feel very fortunate to be mechanically inclined and unafraid. My Italian grandfather would certainly been proud. Especially considering my French surname: Peugeot.
