My GF and I just came back from a very pleasant road trip from Calgary, AB, south down the #2, through the Crowsnest Pass, to Nelson BC for the weekend, and back though Kaslo, Nakusp, and across the ferry to Revelstoke and back to Calgary on the #1. Great roads and a great car. My 89 328GTS, never missed a beat, held more than enough stuff for a weekend, was comfortable and lots of fun on the roads, which are some of the best I know. This route must be similar to the one taken by a bunch of other Ferrari's from Calgary, as the guy from the ferry told my last weekend a whole boat load went through. An example of Ferrari Grand Touring at it's best. Pack a couple of bags, a cute girl, and go for the weekend somewhere far away...I'm proud of my dirty Ferrari with 1400km of bugs plastered all over it. The 328 impressed, as the suspension is surprisingly compliant, the engine so flexible that you could just leave it in 5 for most of the mountain roads, and it had enough clearance to get on the Ferry! I was only partially deaf when we arrived, and my back was in good shape. I've been thinking hard about a Boxer, but it occurs to me that the trip might not have been as much fun, what with the fixed roof and limited luggage space-and perhaps I'd be completly deaf afterward. Guess I need to make more money and have both! Or, come to think of it, a 365 GTC would have been a good car for the trip- heaven help me.... Cheers, Lawrence.
