    In 1995 I bought a 26,000 mile Silver/Red 1983 308GTSi QV in 9/10 condition. Had 4 great years with her but it was time for us to part in 1999. Since then, I've built a new
    business, built a new home, got married, had a baby and every day was looking forward to getting back into a Ferrari. Always thought it would be a 355 or 550 for the next
    purchase but I made an offer that was accepted on a 1989 Mondial T Coupe.

    Will post pics and impressions once all is sorted out.

    Always loved the T as it really seemed to be the link between the 70s/80s and the modern era of Ferraris. I loved those older cars because those are the ones I drooled over as a kid, but respect the ones built from the 456 onwards. I'm 41 now and although I was ecstatic with my 308 at 29, this is just soooooooooooooo coool.

    The Coupes are just so hard to find, but that's what I wanted. Just last week I warned my wife that if I saw a good one at a sane price I could not NOT buy it. Little did I realize that warning was a premonition.
