Archie- Right after I sent you a pm about your trip, I was admiring a photo of your car (just before I read this post)! Since you are a FL member since 2006, and you got the car in April/May 2009, and have nearly 4,000 posts, I'd say you have another cavallino rampante in mind!

PS - Your car looks great!

The 308 is my second Ferrari, I had a 328 in the past, there will probably be another Ferrari in the future

Best of luck then and hope you find the right buyer who will appreciate her as much as you do. Would you consider another 328 for your future Ferrari or go for something different?

I love the 3x8 cars, but would prefer something a bit more modern like a 360 next time

I think my next one would be a 550 or 575.

Sad to hear, Arch! But you don't sound as sad as when the 328 went, so I'm guessing you're not heart broken.

Your profile pic actually shows the 328, BTW. Your avatar shows the 308 (perhaps a bit small to do a PPI on ).

Thanks for correcting me Onno I'll be a bit sad to get rid of the 308, but it wont be for ever.

Jimmy, I had a great time in the Philippines, thanks. Would love to go back there again soon. Can't say too much here as my posts are being monitored
Will post more in the other place, know what i mean?

I'm stunned Archie, you looked a lot before buying that car. But needs must. Your young fella will miss it to.

There is method to my madness, just can't talk publicly about it.

Someone is looking at my posts - nosey bastard











Hence my relative silence over the last few months
