Ciao from Italy

Hi my name is Poppy and I just joined the forum. I love exotic cars and bikes. Looking forward to getting my first Ferrari, at the moment I drive a 1973 Porsche RS Carrera Lightweight and have an MV Agusta 675 motorcycle to race.

Poppy, welcome to FL. Quite an avatar and quite a car you own !

Number of years back, I almost bought like yours, Carrera 73 RS !

Being a bike racer, you should get along fine with our member, lucca brazzi. He is our hip biker in full force.

Poppy- Welcome and you already have quite a collection. The MV Agusta is the Ferrari of motorcycles and I remember John Surtees winning a world championship or two with an MV Agusta. If that is a real RS you have, they are worth a fortune.

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

Ed- I do not know what you blew in Mattiacci's ear, but it sure helped last weekend.

Welcome Poppy! What Ferrari are you thinking of adding to your tasty stable?

A few Saturdays ago I had the privilege of spending the day playing with these RS'. The 964 RS was surprisingly quicker on the straights, the 993 RS seemed to have the edge on the fast bends. Both really came alive when pushed, true racing cars for the road. Particularly the 964 RS that felt a bit more purposeful. The rifle bolt gearchange and music of the 993 RS versus purposefulness of the 964 RS. I could not choose between the two...

Would be great to see pics of your 2.7 RS lightweight and to hear about your driving impressions.

Thank you all again for the welcomes. Yes I will put in some pics soon. I am looking for an older Ferrari with good provenance, though I like the new cars too.

Poppy- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Those are some serious leathers.

Your avatar is very eye catching, like Jimmy said.
