    Great car, great color. I will never understand why these and our Mondials do not get the respect they deserve. Side note- a friend of mine has a green 348. Didn’t think that would work on a Ferrari. Car gets all kinds of attention everywhere he goes.

    Yes, you do... a '57 190sl - my father-in-law basically bought it new in early '58 with only 300 miles on it when the original purchaser decided to sell for some reason. Been in the family ever since.

    Very nice. I fell in love with the model in the late 70s and saved up my pennies until I could afford one. Been mine for 18 years. Congrats!

    The Merc is rock solid, with 20k miles in 18 years, only once did I need a tow. Drives nice but a little vague steering on the highway. Not much power but fun to drive. Very easy to maintain.

    The Mondial I really like for highway driving. Great power and pick up. The exhaust note is wonderful

    I also have a 1976 porsche 911. I find this one the most fun to drive but it also needs the most work...but mostly because i built it. It was a roller and I purchased the engine and tranny separately so it is a work in process. I'll finish it someday, for now I just like to get it on roads with a lot of curves.
