    hey everyone a little bit about me I introduced myself in the discussion area, i live in tauranga new zealand where I am studying and selling cuban cigars and some swiss watches. I love cars, we have three mustangs, two 69's a fastback and convertible, and a 2006 GT, also a GT350 on the way 1967 (hopefully)..

    i really love Ferraris I visit continental all the time in search of a 575 superamerica.. if anyone can take a day off work to meet me in Tauranga and take me for a spin in their horse it would be greatly appreciated, we could organise a photo shoot at the local airport wiht some classic aircraft, perhaps side by side with some of my ****ty old American cars :p

    any help in finding a Ferrari owner who would be happy to share their knowledge and expertise with an amateur would be greatly appreciated, it could be a day of driving, cigars and photos! if it sounds interesting to anybody shoot me an email please

    kind regards,
    cam

    ps ill psot some pics of my cars on here later!

    Im sure there are plenty of guys who have nothing better to do than drive thier car over to tauranga and meet some random stranger and take them for a ride in their car.

    It happens all the time here.

    oh well, not exactly what i was expecting, funny thing is my brother is an avid collector in Monaco (I live in Nice aswell) I just never get over there, I'll post some of his pics you've probably seen his cars.. I'm buying a 575 Superamerica within the next year.. I had a 308 GTS for 3 months but sold when I left France, am after a 246 Dino as-well, will keep you updated.

    Welcome to the internet :)

    I wouldn't worry too much, if your offer is genuine then over time people will respond, don't expect an answer by tomorrow.. But you have to also see it from our point of view, the new guys needs to be "tested" so to speak :)

    Just remember don't post spoilers and all is well.

    thanks for the welcome guys, I'm not sure what spoilers are? I don't intend to fool anyone my business is reputable and wouldn't risk losing face over stealing a car =) just a question.. a friend of mine has a 2003 360.. I told him I'd ask him on here before going to Continental, it seems the downshift on the pedals are getting progressively slower.. If someone could offer some insight into the problem it would be very much appreciated, we have tested the electronics.. I'm beginning to think It's a serious hydraulic problem.. it's off the road being prepared for next years Targa classic.. if anyone here could offer a few words of advice on where to proceed to next that would be much appreciated.
