Hi there again to all the drivers pushing past me in a Bella Italiano Motor carro...
anyway as I pointed out I have driven a F355/6 speed extensively over the years and Driven a Mondial T many thousand miles..Out of the cars Im considering I have not driven the 348, but can imagine what it feels like in comparison to the Mondial T and 355/6 speed.
I prefer the Manual top and suspension of the 348,,less issues I have to deal with. I do not see the point in having a power top. I live in South Florida and this will be used in the good months November thru April..
POWER IS NOT AN ISSUE.. I have a Porsche 993 TWIN TURBO that will out run a 348/355 in every gear...
I am well happy with the power of the 348 as it will just for cruising. Im 39 years old and honed my driving skills on the AUTOBAHN in Germany.. Im not interested in street racing anyone,the car is just for cruising.
Im a tech with my own shop so cost of Mechanical work is irrelevant as all maintenance will be done in house.
That being said I decided to focus my search on a 1994 348 Targa or Spyder..the engine is basically same as the Mondial T and I am a whiz at working on that engine.
I plan a few modifications but mainly cosmetic.
NOW my real problem is I want a car only with a TAN interior and prefer a black/silver or yellow NO RED and the majority seems to be red.
I set aside 35k for the car and will take my time to look. Im in no hurry because I know what I want but also see potential for upswing in prices soon.
Thanks for all the info...I learned a few things about the 348/355 that I did not know so it was a valuable exchange of information and ideas..
Plus the 348 will fit in nicely with my other cars....
