    Nothing notable until next year hopefully, though the Elantra gets decent mpg

    Well it needed a 240v line ran out to the garage from the panel in the basement, luckily I don't have a finished basement so it is easy access , I helped my electricin run everything out and it took just around 3 hrs. hanging the unit too k all but two minutes its super small. its no blast furnace but it should help keep it at 40- 45 deg, and maybe if I decide to ever work on the Dino again I can crank it up a little. my total cost was 500 with the heater and material and labor. A gas vented is the best way to go in the long run but I didn't have a good spot to run the vent. So I figured ill give the electric unit a try

    I agree. But its the holidays and time to enjoy time with our families. But I did drive the Dino last week to put fuel and stabil in. Then the next day I traded in my Moms car in and bought her a new 2018 Hyundai as a surprise!. Most exciting thing ive done in a long time!

    You're a good son Mike. I hope she likes it and doesn't make you get her old car back. I thought I'd run into you again this year but the weather kept me from going to the rest of the events. I'm gonna do a few odds and ends to the 355 and put her to sleep in a couple weeks. See you around next year. Have a great Thanksgiving!

    Thx Stan. By getting her a car it will keep me from drooling over the classifieds cause my wife ain’t gonna let me buy anything else now! I was driving myself crazy wanting to buy a new toy that I don’t need. Her car needed some work and her husbands car is a pos. And she loves it. Happy thanksgiving to all

    JP,

    I am putting together a registry on Ferrari 365 GT 2+2, available here on Ferrarichat.com or at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zq-rUGL4T7oy7bLd73hwsZkT_yagzVhw

    I would love to get more information about your car (how many years in the family, if ever restored, etc.) and a few more pictures.

    You may also pm me or email.

    Sincerely,

    Stefano
