Had a slight break in the weather here in Michigan, and I took the opportunity to take one last drive in the Testarossa. I went over to a friend's house to help work on his '68 Dodge Charger with a 440 6-pack motor. As a reward to helping he let me take it for a drive...whew what a bunch of torque! I then took him for a his first ride in a Ferrari. It's like night and day, the Charger is loud mean nasty straight line car, and the Testarossa is so tight, solid, and responsive. It was a great contrast that reminded me just how nice the TR is to drive. He lives out in the country, and as I was leaving we were both in our cars...and well....boys will be boys! We did an imprompt little race up to around 90mph....and to my amazement the ol'e TR ketp up and was just getting it's wind (starting to pull away)...I truly think I could take that Dodge in the quarter mile. It surprised Phil that my little 301 cubes could hang with his 440 of them, and me too! I am so proud of the ol'e girl..she made a good showing and the muscle car guys present have a newfound respect for Ferraris! (....I can't stop grinning.....) I took some pics even though the car is dirty. It just saddens me that this is it for this year. We are getting snow on Tuesday - Yuck!
