New to forum.

Hi.
I'm new to the forum as the title says.
As many other breathing humans I'm one of those without a Ferrari.
But I'm happy cause I know I will get one before I get to old to drive one.
Aiming for a 328 GTB. Was going to buy one befor I get 40 but had major water damages in the house last year, and that drainer the wallet pritty god.
Desided to install a new type of heating system in the house when everything was ripped wide open, it forced me to wait a bit longer for the bigest dream of my life, the Ferrari. (second biggest dream, girlfriend and kids beat the Ferrari).
I live in Sweden and have a girlfriend that finaly said YES! And we have 2 kids, 14 and 17 years old.

By the way, she said yes to a Ferrari

The Koenigsegg's are nice cars too, but not really my type.
A bit more classic gives me the rush.
The new cars are much to high-tech.
I'd like a 308 with carbs, but the slightly more modern look of the 328 made me decide for a 328.
I temporarily thought I wanted a F355, but I came to my senses again and realized I canít afford such car. I have to settle with a 328 which is a very nice car.

By the way, Iím sorry for the bad spelling in the previous post.
I temporarily felt like the 9 years old with the teapot.

Hi D.Mauro & welcome.
The wheels on your car look mean, have you got any clearer pics of them.

Ciao!

Hello everyone, new here but no Ferrari yet.

My real name is Dino so it's been a long obsession to own a ferrari badged appropriately after me.

I have been wrenching mainly British sports cars and currently drive a restored 1964 tr4.

I also ride a 1098 Ducati tricolore and a 200 Moto Guzzi V11 sport.

Not sure which Dino version I want to get but it also depends on funds and ease of do it yourself repairs and maintenance.

What seems to interest me at this moment is the 308 GT4 as it is relativley affordable.

Anyone care to enlighten me on this model a little more.

Many Thanks \

Welcome Dino! The GT4 might just seem to be the car for you. Very easy to repair and maintain for the DIY'er and you would be sproting around in the car that reflects the heritage of your name!

Welcome, 308 GT4's have had a nice run up in value ove rthe last couple of years and now are not much less than a 308 GTB. The two are very similar under the skin and easy to work on if you are so inclined (or talented). Suggest you take a look at both and see which stirs your heart.

Dear All

I'm a 46 year old father of 4 childreen (9, Twins at 6, and 4) living in central europe. I'm a Ferrari enthusiast since childhood but bought my first Ferrari only in 1999. This car, a 550 Maranello, which I ordered new in Grigio Titanio was a wonderful car to drive and experience in every detail. From the bottom of my soul I'm addicted to the classic Ferraris, and since I was so happy with my 550, I bought a 250 GTE 2+2 1961 in addition. I've always driven my Ferraris long and often. It was a important aim for me to learn to know as many different types of Ferraris as possible, but thru own experiences and not by the experiences of others alone. Therefore thru the last 8 -9 years I bought/owned in addition to the 2 previously mentioned cars a 250 PF coupe 1958, a 456 GT 1994, a 330 GTC 1968, a 360 Challenge stradale, and a 275 GTB "shortnose" 1965. I onced had 3 Ferraris together but this was the limit. Normally 2 or only one stayed in the Garage at a time, but all have been driven often and long. It was a very, very satisfying time. The 275 GTB has been sold this spring and since then I'm without a "prancing horse". In late summer I ordered the new "Scuderia" which should be delivered in first half of '08.
Besides the Ferraris I owned I had the wonderful chance to drive the Daytona, the 512 BBi, The F40 and F50, 250 Boano and Ellena as well as a 750 Monza, 250 TdF (1959) and a 212Export 1951 (hence my synonym)

Since my funds as a father of 4 are not unlimited, I would still have "open dreams" in the Ferrari arena (and they will stay dreams I guess). They would be: 212 Export (0096), 250 SWB steel and 750 Monza.

I'm happy to share my experiences with the community and look forward to gain experiences and knowledge from all of you. Thank you for sharing.
