Marc,Marc said:I actually found myself in a similar situation some years ago. A friends dad owned a garage in the 70's and 80's, and he had accepted some great cars as trade ins when they were relatively cheap.
He let his son and me drive a great original Lamborghini Miura. My friend started out, and after a half hour we switched and I was able to take the wheel. I was in heaven. Suddenly the car died on me at a traffic light. We could not start it again and pushed it to the side of the road.
It turned out that the alternator sometimes did not work correctly when the car had been sitting for a while, so it drained the battery, and when it was empty ... no more sparken lighten
We were two young guys with a fabulous car, a very small electrical problem and no clue whatsoever.
I own a carburated Ferrari 308 (which gets about 15mpg if you go easy on it, 7mpg running at the higher speeds). You tell me. :green: :green:FunkyJunc said:Which would you rathe be ecomnomical or passionate?
I get about the same in the 512 BB. 15-18 if you go really easy, 10-12 pushing it on the highway, and under 8 mph if you drive it hard in the hills.Pete04222 said:I own a carburated Ferrari 308 (which gets about 15mpg if you go easy on it, 7mpg running at the higher speeds.

I'd put the owners on this forum in the smart, passionate category, or they wouldn't be on this forum. 8)
