    Low miles for a 1979 model....what, a Ferrari is never supposed to hit 100K or something. A friend of the family has 74K miles on a 1995 F355B.

    man boxers are sexy looking.....low, flat and wide, but still have some curves in there. Ferrari funked up big time getting away from this look.

    delicate and all?

    Son, it will go as many miles as you drive it...

    Some folks would just rather look at them, than drive them!

    Ferraris immediatley start to self destruct after 95000 miles,which is why everyone disconnects or replaces the speedometer, better send that one to a wrecking yard.

    i know of three 308 and a Mondial with well over 100k miles. Know the owner of one of the 308 and the Mondial. cars like this ARE NOT "delicate" as long as you drive and service them. The problem is from TOO LITTLE driving IMHO.

    Every car starts to show its age at some point, depending on the care it
    is given.

    But I will say you have a good plan, I guess if you disconnect the speedo
    you can put as many miles as you want on a Ferari and it won't self destruct!!

    As far as the wrecking yard, I would gladly take it and drive it till it self destructs.

    We had a Daytona with 190,000 miles at our track event last year. Owner had owned and used the car for 30-odd years. He had the motor rebuilt at 120,000. It seemed to run very strongly. As someone else has observed, within limits, the issue isn't miles, it's lack of them.

    Jules Moritz has put 200k miles on his black 1985 TR. He does almost all the work. He drives it everywhere and he's owned it since new. The car has had very few problems. It's also one of the most tracked and raced TR out there (hillclimbs, track events, etc.)

    Ferrari = Driving Pleasure.
    Ferrari sitting in a garage gathering dust = ZERO Pleasure.
    Once I order my new one this year I WILL DRIVE IT HOME and enjoy every second.

    I think that's awesome. Does anyone have information about the 100k+ 348s and 355s? I'd be really interested to read about their experiences. If I ever get my hands on one, I want to use it daily, which means 15-20k a year.
