4 Timer jumping on board from Vegas

Hi Everyone:

Well, for my first post I guess it's only polite to say "hello", so here goes.

I'm a four time owner having owned 1970 246 Dino gt, 1980 308gtb, 1982 308gts, and currently have an 2008 F430 F-1 Spider and 2002 Maserati Spyder.

Just wanted to say HI. I'm very much looking forward to hearing the collective thoughts on this forum.

Well, as long as you asked, here's the current stable. I sold the Dino about 10 years ago and both 308's I had for a year or so in the mid 80's. Both of these you see here I bought new.

Welcome to FL. If you haven't already you should checkout Formula Dynamics for your Maserati. They are located in Vegas as well and are probably the best tuners around for that Marquee. By the way, I like the Daytona seats with red inserts, looks good.

welcome, and I DO like those color combos. Seems interesting to have two two seaters. Guessing one is more a daily.

Right now, that would be the F430. It's addictive! ... most fun vehicle I've ever owned. Terrific power, sound, easy of use, but what most impressive and surprised me was the steering feel.

Yes, I agonized over the color combos before selecting it. In the end, I went with Rossa Corso only because the Maser was already in titanium. Also, my old Dino was red and the F430 seemed like a modern version of it. Actually, when I first sat in the F430, it reminded me of it greatly when looking over the hood.

At first, I was concerned about the red seat inserts/stitching but when I finally received it, I really loved it. People who have seen it just drool and point it out so I must have done something right. It has carbon everything with the exception of the engine compartment.

Both have F-1 boxes. The difference in performance is night and day but the basics are pretty much the same. For the money, I haven't found another car to replace the Maser ...but then I'm not much of a Porsche fan and Mercs seem to be too sedate for me (no offense to anyone!)

The Maser has a Tubi which I put in the first week. It made a world of difference. The F430 is stock -- I'm afraid of it making too much noise for the neighbohood!

Both have been getting service at Penske/Wynn and I had nothing but good things to say about them.

Thanks again for the comments! Look forward to hearing what's going on in this forum.

I like the CF interiors for the newer ones. Let maintenance and more enjoyments. Plus it fits the venue of newer tech better.

Older, well, leather ok, but honestly, tired of the upkeep.
