    I’m traumatized! Little did I know how much I enjoyed my 92 348ts. She just went to a new home and I can’t believe how I’m feeling. I fully intend to get a late model 355 just as soon as I find the “right” car at a fair price. Today would be fine. But, it is very strange how I already miss the raw feel of the 348. I didn’t have these feelings when I sold the 308 or the 328. Frankly, I can’t understand it. So it may sound really silly but I’m truly sad. My wife thinks I’m nuts and she may be right. I just love these crazy, touchy, temperamental, beautiful pieces of art. Now I need everyone’s help to find her replacement. If you know of a pristine, serviced, low mileage, late model, red or black 355, please let me know. I prefer a 6 speed. Doesn’t matter if it is a GTS, Spider or Berlinetta. Must be loved and show it. I am ready and I can’t stand to have an empty garage! HELP.

    Actually, I’m quite serious; I am ready to purchase the right car at a fair price. If you know of one that meets the above criteria, please PM me. Thanks for the listening (reading) ear. It is tougher than I thought.

    I hope you are able to get your fix soon! :)

    I fully understand missing your 348 as I too have a special attachment to the series(spiders in particular).

    Hopefully you won't have to go through the agony as long as I did. I sold my '89 328 and I went for a whole 3 weeks before I replaced it!!!!! ;)

    Hahaha,
    I feel for you JSL, but your post was funny! FA like AA.....

    I don't know what you consider as a fair price, but I got my '98 355 spider for $91K w/ 30K service done (along w/ minor cosmetic touch ups) Don't be too easy on your requirement due to your F hunger.

    Good luck for hunting your next F car!

    I have a buddy selling a 1997 355 Berlinetta F1. Its silver with black. Tubi, custom wheels, lots of carbon fiber, air intake ect. Needs to go to a Ferrari enthusiest. I believe it has 24xxx on it but has been properly maintained. Send me a PM if interested. I also know a fellow selling a 99 red 355 f1 spider with 18K on it.

    I can't believe there hasn't been a 355 owner offer you a ride to get your "fix"!! I only have a 308 and am way up north of you but would be more than happy to offer you a ride to tide you over!

    Good luck on the search!!
