    ...so the hunt is on for it's replacement!! Teetering between a 355 GTS (blue or black) and a 89-91 black or red TR. Will let you know when I find something. Cheers, Jerry.

    i wanna say congratulations, but somehow, that just doesn't sound right; i'll wait until you've sealed the deal on your new acquisition before i utter those words... Good luck in your search, though... and post pictures...! :)

    tr...you have already done the 8 cyl thing. once you go w/ the 12 cyl, you will never go back. it really does define the ferrari experience imho. have fun hunting for your next steed.

    Awww crap Jerrry - I loved your 308. I assume you'll bring the replacement to the Italian car show at the Edsel Ford estate next year?

    Jerry, we met at Cavalino. Sorry to hear about your loss. Have you check with Martin on your search? The individual that I purchased my 348 from went with a TR and seems to be happy with the decision. Although, a 355 spyder is a nice look too. Decisions, decisions.

    Chris, thanks for the compliment. I actually sold it to a guy in Clarkston, so maybe you'll see it even more!
    Ken, of course I remember you....you silly goose!! I did check w/ Martin & still awaiting his response. BTW: love your 348!!

    Hey Jerry.
    I saw your car in the Auto-rv trader. Is this the ad that brought your buyer?
    I always get lots of calls from that paper, but since it's free and eveyone picks it up usually they're not serious.

    Hey Jerry-

    I knew it wouldn't take long to sell that mean black 308. I don't know that I've seen a finer example. I'm excited to see what goes into the stable next.

    Bill, yes I sold it from the Michigan Auto-RV. I had 4-5 very interested people call me. I talked to a car dealer friend of mine who said that is the best paper in Michigan for response rate.

    John, yes I have been looking there. I look forward to seeing you this year in August!

    Nicholas, thank you for the compliment. I did love that car after all that I did to it, but couldn't turn down the offer. :)

    I agree, I myself am leaning towards a 512TR.

    My only reservation is that I am used to the targa top being off 95% of the time on the 308 & worried about not liking the TR because of the fixed roof. Hard to say until I actually spend a fair amound of time behind the wheel I guess.

    Jerry,

    There are so few blue GTS's.. if you find one, I'll be forced to kill you :) I could give you the number for a guy in Miami who's selling a 95 355GTS... blue on tan, euro model... Ferrariclassified.com has 2 blue GTS's listed but they're both asking somewhere around $117k. There's also a black/tan 95 at Foreign Cars Italia in Greensboro. Let me know how the hunt goes..I'm right behind ya!

    I went from a 328gts to a Testarossa and never cared about the targa top, which I really loved but once I drove the 12 with a tubi and test pipes then I can care less about a targa top. But if you care about having some extra speed then go for a 512tr and if you can't picture yourself without a targa then buy a 355gts, but the testarossa or 512tr both have looks that for me are very exotic, the 355 cant match its looks or prestige.

    Damn, you are too fast for me.
    You said you were thinkng about it, I was not sure if you were really serious :)
    Had no TR in those colors though. M\y red/tan on consignment sold a few days ago. Of course on the day I hasd a serious buyer for the car.
