I joined this forum a while back, and have been reading it with great interest. I have been into cars and motorcycles since my childhood, and although I have ridden mostly Italian motorcycles - Ducatis and one Laverda that sure thought me a lot about wrenching
, I was always more found of German cars, mostly because the circle I belonged to worshiped them as being the tech masterpieces compared to unreliable Italians. And the fact that M. Scumacher raced for Ferrari did not help either, as I admit that he is probably the greatest driver in F1 history, but I could never be his fan. So everything was set for me to one day become a Porsche owner.
But, as I grew older, I realized that I am much more a Ferrari person, maybe because I live only 40km from Italy, maybe because I love Italian food, maybe because I am not just a rationale being, but one of emotions, maybe... I do not know, but as I started to put some money inside my black box to buy a toy for me, I realized that it will be a Ferrari
So, when I put my financials together, I am still some 25k EUR short, I will be looking to buy either a 360 or 550,575.
Both are amazing machines, I have driven 550 on numerous occasions as my former boss used to own it, that was some 12 years ago, and I would usually drive the car home from meetings and dinners as he liked to drink, and it was ok with me
. I have never driven a 360, but, I still have time to decide which route to go. I love the usability and smoothness of a V12, but as a Ducatista and racing fan I love the sound of a screaming V8. Guess I will need to have them both one day!!!
I must say that I am really impressed with the amount of help that one can get on this great forum, so really a big applause for all of you contributing members!
