    I've heard the F1 in the 355 shifts slow and is jerky, is this correct?

    One needs to keep things in perspective. At the time, the F1 was the revolutionary. It was the edge of technology. So, of course, by today’s standards it’s dated. But, that’s the case for all classic cars. The same would be the case for a 275, a Dino, etc. These are the types of things that add joy to owning a vintage or classic car.

    Word is, over priced for condition, missing items, some stickies and tires. I will go by next week and see. 5 minutes from my office.

    Has some needs for sure, but an $80K ask isn't a terrible jumping off point from a dealer, IMO. I'd take a hard look at the service history as it still has the old PS reservoir and the fuel block recall hasn't been done, I'd think a dealer would have addressed those things, so who did the maintenance? Ad says Grigio, but it looks like Canna to me, which personally I like a lot...

    If I was in the market, a 1995 B in that spec with 30K miles and that initial asking price would be worth some further investigation before writing it off.

    It's an early 95 with dual fuel pumps. The fuel block recall doesn't apply. PS res, a $15 fix if you must. Mime is still original. No problem if installed correctly and the cap is not over tightened.

    Wasn't aware that early 95 had dual fuel pumps that negated the need for the recall...learned something today, thanks.

    Actually the dual fuel pump cars did have a recall #157, for fuel lines. Something about a nut cracking if tightened to much.

    I love that color and it just pops with that interior.
    Of course it needs a few of the stickies addressed, but I think that's a great price
