    All,
    I’ve been a longtime lurker and have been looking around for a Ferrari for quite some time. Landed on a Mondial 3.2 coupe as I’m 6’4, didn’t want to deal with convertible issues if I drive overnight, and appreciated the easier service it provided by the 3.2 configuration. Finding a 3.2 coupe in the right condition (driver quality), was a struggle. Luckily @ATSAaron responded to my FB post, saying he had @snj5 ‘s old car and it was for sale! I thought the turbo would be too much for me (it might be, ha! -thanks for the boost controller Aaron) but really appreciated all the updates Aaron and Russ did to the car over the years. The car is an absolute beast, and handles great! I’m in love with my Crazy Horse.
    I’m in Richmond, Va if anyone is local. I’d love to meet up... at some point...

    I'll bet the little Boxy is still faster...

    @spicedriver the Boxster is certainly easier to drive fast, and probably is faster around a track. Straight line on a highway, the mondi is the champion... both are great drives!

    Thanks @SaratogaCA !

    Aaron said he went deep into old military planes, but I don’t know. I’m going to try and get in touch with him. I think he lives on the east coast now.

    I've also been looking at Ferrari's for a long time (2 years now) finally bought a 1990 T - it's a shame we are now in Lockdown & i can't take it out much, but i have a bit of work to do on the Electrics, hopefully i will have most of the issues sorted out in the next few months & the weather will still be good!
