I'm a 355 F1 driver since August. Not new to exotics but this is my first Ferrari. I'm an old retired guy but love the car crowd. You can see my car at www.panteraguy.com

Hope to chat often with everyone, I've been on the F-Chat forums and just discovered Ferrari life.

The automatic clutch on your Pantera is a very neat idea.

Thanks, everyone. I do look forward to the friendships. (I have got to stop buying cars that are hard to get into!)

That's funny! I've got the same problem. Got the low F-car you have to crawl into and I've got the big lifted Jeep you have to climb up into.

I did trade in my big 3/4 ton diesel Dodge Ram for a 1/2 ton Chevy Silverado. That one is easy to get in and out of.

You should've traded for a Ram SRT-10;) That would get the plowing done in about 10 seconds. :laugh:

Yeah, I do like the Dodge trucks but this Chevy was a good deal. Having said that, I do miss my old diesel Dodge everytime I pull up to the gas pump in my Chevy. The Cummins-powered Dodge averaged around 17 mpg around town (even towing a trailer with a Jeep on it), the V-8 gas Chevy averages around 13 mpg around town (less with the snow plow attached).

I think the SRT-10 gets about 7 mpg....haha of course it has a Viper V10, I suppose that could have something to do with it.

Now that's an economy car!

Interesting how Dodge played upon the Shelby snake by naming this a "Viper".

Similar to the Mustang having a horse in the grille to get even with Ferrari!
Haha, never thought of the Shelby snake and the Viper before. I have however seen the correlation between Ferrari and Mustang....:thumbsdown:
