    Hey All,
    I'm new to this site so I thought I would introduce myself.
    My name is Ty, a 34 year old dude from Atlanta, Ga. I've been in love with Ferrari's since I got a Matchbox Testarossa when I was 6. It's been a lifelong goal of mine to own a Luxury Spec, mid engine V8 hardtop convertible, Corsa Rossa over Peanut Butter Tan. One day I'll get there. If anyone has any advice or help for me on that journey, I'm all ears. Other than that, thank you for having me here. I'll talk to you all soon!

    Watch this forum for local events, and then just come and engage with us. You'll learn a lot and be better prepared for when you do make the big purchase. (And don't be in a hurry for that; I waited about 25 years!)

    Which V8? There's a long line of them. I have a 348 preference myself.

    Do you have one preference over another?

    It's funny, I go through phases where I fall in and out of love with different models, kind of the way I do with genres of music. At the moment something about the 308 is really speaking to me. But the 355 is also near the top, and honestly I really like the 458/488 era as well. If I could only have one, I'd have a brand new 488 spider, but if they do a F8 Spider next year, that will be at the top of the list.

    Remember that the 348 and 355 require engine-out for major service, which seriously drives up the cost. If you like the styling (I don't), I think the 360 is probably the best balance right now between cost, performance and reliability. My 328 is quite reliable but is also 33 years old, and parts are become hard to find and quite pricey.

    I'm aware of the "Major Service" situation. The 360 is probably the most attainable for me at the moment, but I was just talking in terms of MY FAVORITE models.
