    Drove up to Andy Greene Sports & Vintage Race Cars at 7:30am today to see my 328 for the first time (delivered yesterday). I really thought I might throw up on the way there from the excitement of it all so had put the top down on the Miata for fresh air. Pam showed me strait to the service bay where an absolutely stunning work of art stretched out in front of me – so low & lean, yet curvaceous! I couldn’t breathe. The high gloss black exterior was liquid, streaming... as I moved 360. Not a ding or scratch to be found under microscopic examination except a few chips on the front lip which had been meticulously touched up. WTH, you can’t go to the 7-eleven w/out that. Now I get in. The black leather- supple, shinny & fits like a glove w/ the dash, wheel & console flawless. THIS is MY cockpit. I’m speechless & completely confident that I have made one of the best decisions of my life. I ask for the key & take it to the next level. Later, dudes.

    Hey SPASSO:
    I'm definitly "out of the blue & into the black." Neil Young.
    My Montego Blue JRSC Miata was shivering, but still proud - as I am of it. Yeah. This just keeps getting better. I saw the "Monster" V8 Miata today in the garage.

    Congratulations I got mine today too :) My alternator seems to be dead but I drove her around a bit, even broke traction a little . Crazy car. I already ordered better brake pads & will get new sticky tires soon

    Yes it does, especially when surrounded by like minded owners in Ferraris of all shapes and sizes. Very much fun to share drives with club members and run with some of the best.

    The more you drive , the more you realize just how special your car is. Unlike any other, it stands alone.

    Doesn't the thread title make everyone assume there will be pictures? Come one, we want to see that beauty!

    "Hey hey, my my.....rock and roll will never die".......anyway, congrats!

    I have a friend that just bought a 512 BBi ( sight unseen, and with very low mileage and no PPI) to keep his 308QV company. I was there when the transport arrived with the car.

    It was stunning, and better than represented by the selling dealer.

    Sometimes, ya just luck out! :)

    Pics on your car w/ you (w/ big smile) are in order.

    Happy to hear your first encounter w/ 328. Yes, low & lean w/ carvaceous body style. I still like the 328 looks better than 355 I have now.

    Looking forward to hear your first driving impression.

    Very cool description, I bet you will remember that experience for the rest of your life. I hope I will feel the same way when I get mine (less than 2 years and counting). I'm sure I will. As everyone else says, send picts, please.

    Congratulations as well! I remember when I got my 328 I couldn't believe it was really happening. I kept opening the door to the garage the first week to make sure it was really there.

    Enjoy the car and drive it the way it should!

    As a pro photographer I feel it is important to have more than your average pics representing the 1st impression. Trust me, you are in for a treat when they come.
