    Hey Mr. Doody,
    I know I could have asked you this in a private e-mail, but I thought a lot of people would probably be just as interested in this as me. Now that you have parted company with that terrific 550 and taken possession of the 360 CS, I'm curious about your thoughts and driving impressions. What do you like about the CS? Anything you dislike? Anything you didn't expect? Since very few of us will ever get the chance to drive both of those cars, nevermind own them, it would be very interesting to hear your thoughts. Have you had a chance to really wind that thing out yet before winter sets in?

    hey birdie!

    i'm still inside the break-in miles period. was on the road for the better part of last week on business and just got home today. tomorrow i plan to get her past the break-in barrier.

    so i haven't really run her aggressively. i've nearly soiled myself on two highway on-ramps - when she cuts loose, she CUTS LOOSE ;).

    but i've been working really hard to keep it sub 5K RPMs (8500 redline), so i can't really usefully comment on the "true" driving impressions yet.

    soon though, soon......

    doody.

    Doody,
    You weren't by any chance passing through Peabody yesterday, were you? I was getting some lunch with a friend when he just started pointing out the window at a gorgeous red 360 CS!

    If it was you, the car was beautiful and sounded great too!! If not, whoever owns that car has one nice ride!

    Doody,

    Mr Doody traded the 550 for a 360CS? Man, I've really been out of touch.
    Congrats. You've been such long standing ambassador for the 550M. I've lusting over these as well and am curious to hear your paralelled comparison, contrast and preference.

    Dan, It was around 3:30... I was at Land & Sea on Lynnfield Street in Peabody. You might have seen my silver Viper GTS out front when you drove by but then again, if I was driving your car I wouldn't be paying much attention to what I was driving past!!

    I left right after you went by and was heading to Marblehead. The whole way over to Marblehead my friend and I were looking out for your car, hoping that you stopped somewhere for gas or a coffee or something just so we could take a look at it. Do you live in the area? If so, I'd love to check out your car sometime... it was absolutely gorgeous!! We walked over to the Viper like it was an '86 caravan after you drove by!
