How many new cars has it been this month? Byron - Again - I apologize for spoiling your secret! Too bad you couldn't get back at me! Since I am sooo bad with secrets - it is time to spill some more beans! I AM ONE SICK PUPPY because the YELLOW HOTTIE has a new BIG BROTHER! Joining the yellow hottie next week will be another yellow hottie. Her name is "360 Modena 6-Speed." I could not resist. I have always liked the 360 - but not loved it. That all changed a few weeks ago when I was innocently surfing the internet and came across a tuner named Novitec Rosso. After seeing a picture of the new Novitec Rosso 360 Modena - I started to shake and shudder! It is the most beautiful 360 I had ever seen! Bottom line? I had to have one! First order of business - find "Big Brother Yellow Hottie." As coincidence would have it one of my fellow offshore powerboat friends is also a Ferrari enthusiast. Unfortunately, he rarely attends any Ferrari gatherings. To make a long story short - I bought his car - the perfect car for me. A yellow 2000 360 Modena six speed. Do you know how hard it is to find a six speed 360?? It seems like nine out of 10 360s are F1. He had told me he was planning to sell it this summer as he was going to replace it with a new '04 Spyder. He wasn't quite ready to part with it but I managed to convince him otherwise! BB Yellow Hottie is undergoing some minor upgrades as we speak - exhaust, Challenge grill, etc. The Novitec kit will have to wait a few months as it is being introduced to the U.S. market as we speak. Unfortunately, inventory is non existent at this time. The attached pics are NOT my car but it is what I HOPE my car will one day look like - in yellow of course (and minus the rear wing)! It is the new Novitec 360. I know. The purists are going to cringe! Not a problem - they can cringe while I rejoice!
