Was wondering if anyone else has this hangup. My first Ferrari was an '80 308 GTSi that spent quite a bit of time at the mechanic the first year and a half I owned it. It broke down at least half a dozen times (to make matters worse, there were always some people who particularly enjoyed seeing a Ferrari stuck on the side of the road; honked horns, yelled interesting messages, etc.), to the point that I almost expected something to go wrong each time I took her out. Even after I finally got her in good shape (no more problems for 2 years), I would still always wonder when and where it would break down next, so much so that it started interfering with my enjoyment of the car. Today, even with my Mondial having no problems I still find myself with lingering fears from my previous Ferrari, which can be rather distracting. Hopefully in time extinction (ie, behavioral change due to termination of negative stimulus) will kick in and I will no longer have this issue.
