I'm beginning to look for my next weekend car and the F355 is currently top of my list for a number of reasons (most of them obvious to anyone on this forum). My current car is a 1998 NSX-T which has been steadily gaining value over the past five years and not a car that is easy to give up (every past owner I've talked with regrets selling theirs). But I feel like a change and the 355 is currently the one. The only problem is that very few appear to come up for sale in the Seattle, WA area so its difficult to see one in the flesh, let alone sit in one and take it for a drive. I consider myself more of a driver rather than a car lover, so its important for me that a car engages me in a certain way and doesn't have any negative features. The NSX is falls very much into the "engagement" category and has very little in the way annoyances (none to be honest, but that's just my opinion!) Ideally I'd like to take a serious look at GTS and a Spyder (sorry but Berlinetta's don't do it for me) before buying so that I know what to expect when I finally find the perfect one to buy. So how did everyone here go from thinking about buying one to actually making the leap and getting one? I'm fairly pragmatic and willing to take my time on this but any feedback on this would be appreciated. The only plan I have at the moment is to visit the two local Ferrari car shows that I know happen in the summer and hopefully be able to talk to F355 owners in person and look over their cars. But Seattle Ferrari owners can be funny sometimes and not give the average Joe the time of day. Any other ideas on how to go about this?
