Hello all Ferrari people,
My passion (obsession) for the Cavallino badge started about 10 years ago at the age of 18 or 19. What few people know is that my drive in life is fueled by my desire to some day own a 355B. My motivation through 6 years of collage was knowning that I would someday, before 30 was my goal, have the car of my dreams. If not for Enzo himself creating automotive sex on wheels so many years ago I probaly wouldn't have gone throught college. I owe my own livelyhood to Ferrari.
About 9 month ago I nearly bought a 1995 355B but the car was swiped out from under me as the financing was going through
Maybe that was for the best at the time, although I SOOOOO wanted it and still do.
Understanding that impulse/uneducated buying is not a wise thing, I have come here to research and understand the beast and all aspects that come with ownership. My window for purchase is probably 6 months out, but who knows really. Life can change quick so I want to make sure I am ready when it becomes time.
What I hope to gain here is the knowledge of what I am getting myself into and learning what is possible and what is unrealistic when it comes to wrenching on my future car. I have a vivid understanding of the potential maintanence costs of ownership but I want a complete understanding. I have the mechanical ability, attention to detail and passion for the cars so I have no doubt that I would be able to perform the majority of the maintance myself.
Thanks to those who read through this and I am excited to learn.
