    Must have been a nice drive home, John. So are you keeping the 360?

    At this point I'm planning to keep the 360 Willis, but later, who knows.

    SoCal was a LOT of heavy traffic. Lots of long, straight, but quick stretches along the way, mountains in southern Oregon were a lot of fun.

    Unbelievable how many people tried to get me to race, especially modified Civics...(??)

    Thanks guys.

    I took it out for a drive again today. Definitely a great car, but has significantly less clearance than the 360 and much stiffer suspension. It's amazing how many streets I've driven down countless times with the F-car and never noticed the bumps in the road compared to in the Lambo. I find that it's much more work to drive casually than the 360 just due to having to pay more attention to clearances, etc. I'm sure the guys with CS's understand what I'm talking about.

    Don't worry Dave, I don't have any plans to be Ferrari-less. I love the 360. IF I do decide to part with this one someday, (again, NO present plans to) I'll just buy another one.

    yb360, congrats on the car. I lived in Washington for 7 years and barely saw any exotic cars... I think I can only remember a testarossa.. Props to you for having 2...

    I thought it might be optical based on color and picture angles but it's something like 2" lower and 7" shorter...basically the size of a 355.

    It IS huge next to the Gallardo. I didn't realize that until I pulled it into the garage and stood back to look at them together. At first, I thought it was a bit of an optical illusion due to angles also, but the G really is much smaller. You definitely also notice it getting in and out of them. With the G it feels like you're sitting on the ground in comparison.

    Oh " THE SEARCH"..maybe the most fun part.

    In perfect world, I would go for the Gallardo spider and keep my 360 coupe. That search is a couple years away though I fear. I'm gonna have to work alot harder!

    Nice Choice,

    Mike

    I do have this little itch that says I need something that the top comes off of, but I haven't decided what it will be yet; which is probably just as well. I definitely don't need to be looking for another toy right now.
