Hi Mick,

I am just curious as to your first impressions with the "3.2" and if possible, any comparisons to other Ferraris you could provide. Beautiful piece. Thank you for sharing. 8)

Forza,

Dane

:p Dana,To answer your questions,1 I have only driven a 308 gts and the 308gtsi ,besides the sound prefrence of the gts, I thought it was for lack of a better word primative..The gtsi a lot better ,a little slower,speed is not my #1 factor.When I got into the cabriolet, after driveing it for maybe 1 mile the decision had been made.with no roof it sounds great,much more room up front,and when our baby is born in July he or she will fit in the back. I looked at other colours as red is common but to me when you think Ferrari you also think red. :eek:ha:

Mick,

Thank you for the response. I, too, just loved the sounds of my GTB. Once I drove the Mondial and experienced it's cornering, visibility and comfort, I was hooked. Yes, the FI does take from overall BHP but I did find the low-end torque and user-friendly nature of the car to sufficiently make up for that deficiency. I do love the 308's. I still think that line is one of the sexiest ever to come from Maranello. There is no mistaking a 308/328 as a Ferrari whereas the "cab-forward" design of the Mondial leaves those non-Tifoso(i) guessing as to the marques of the car. I did love the blue of my 308 but I found myself joking, "well, I guess one does have to have a "red" Ferrari in their lifetime(!)." :wink:

Pete,

Your 308 is still one of the prettiest I have seen. However, you obviously have Mick fooled. He's labeling you as a true "gentleman?" Ha Ha! :D
Hope you are well buddy.

Forza,

Dane

Dane,
When Mick said "Gentleman" I am pretty sure he was refering to our friend from the Great White North. Surely, he could not have meant me! :eek:

Couldn't have been me either, since although this is the North, it ain't white in my end of the country... :lol:

(I feel real sorry for your guys on the East Coast with the recent snow storms. Being originally from Montreal, I remember that stuff and was one of the reasons why I moved to the wet - but warm - West Coast...)

Peter,

The snow in my parking lot here at the office has been plowed into 6 foot mounds! In 1996 we had a similar snowfall and those mounds of snow did not melt completely until late April.
