    Wheels are clean and ready for take out.

    they'll be in the back of the station wagon in the AM

    See you at 8:00, you're buying!

    Oh, and I'll have an interesting announcement for the gang.

    I had heard a story from a reputable source about a 360 Algar sold recently and the sales person said annual service recently done. Turns out it was done 15 months ago and service was not current and is due after the buyer got it home. So, I'd ask to see all receipts.

    They told me up front car needs service, new timing belt, etc. Figured it was about a $3500 dollar affair and they reduced the selling price accordingly. It's not a done deal yet, the owner still has to ok my offer, it still has to pass a PPI, etc, but...

    Looking good to me.

    Dino is sold, well, pending some minor details and a deposit check.

    Trade the Dino? Nah, they'd have to toss in a second car to make that deal work.

    True, however some Ferrari dealer prices for 360s can almost be in dino territory!

    Curious, did you advertise the Dino or find someone privately?

    I'm gonna withhold further details until the deal is done and the car is delivered, at the request of the buyer.

    Hmmmmm, I like your definition of sold. No money changes hands and it's considered sold...I'll take that deal!

    Dave,
    A 360? That's great! Have you test driven it yet? I don't think you'll want to drive the Boxster again after you get this car.

    Took it out Friday. Scared a week or two of life out of myself, not sure how much time I took off of Rick's ticket.

    Dunno about the boxster, my wife has expressed some interest in keeping it to have fun with. Stay tuned on that.

    Bob was nice enough to add something to my display case today. Thanks Bob!!!

    Joe,

    that was one of the first things we talked about. Handled, and the car will get picked up from them, so I don't have to worry about that either.

    Hey guys, wanted to see if there was room in the near future to run with you guys. Right now I'm waiting on my 328 to come in from Texas, should have her in a week and half if the weather holds up.

    Keep me posted for future runs if you don't mind.

    Dave....pre-congrads on the 360...hope all goes well and the weather holds out for a couple runs with her.

    Thanks !

    Unfortunate. Was this recent? Just find it suprising based on my experiences with them.
