    here is the Brosseau 308. bought in january of this year. underwent 6 weeks of cleaning and restoring. mainly to chassis, interior, engine bay, and paint. for the $23k paid and the $40k offered since it has been worth it. the car has my blood and sweat in it. it is me and i am it.

    here is me on my other toy. a 01' suzuki 1300 hayabusa. this one has race cams and exhaust and the top speed governer removed. she is good for 175hp at the wheel, 101 lb-ft of torque and 1/4 times in the low 9's. if i was ballzy enough i could push low 2 second 0-60mph times and i have had it past 200 on a gps.

    Cool collection. I will always go for the Ferrari.
    First of all: it is a Ferrari,
    second: I drive like a madman on my bike, a motorcycle will be my death.
    I have forbidden myself to step on such a thing.

    I haven't had it out in a while, only thing new with it is I bought an FCA club badge on Ebay a few weeks ago and its on the car... That's about it! It needs a few things which I'll tackle this winter (usual service issues plus some more like a new fuel pump, cosmetics, etc), but yes, hoping for a half-decent day to take it out.

    Hope to see your car again next year at the various events. Hopefully we'll have another summer of long-lasting, glorious weather.

    Joe,

    It looks great!! I met you briefly at the Italian Concours at the Seattle Pier in Sept.

    This 308 has been in the NW Ferrari Club for along time. I knew four of it's previous owners, starting with: Bob D., Tom N., Brian L. and Chris I.

    Only one of the guys (Brian L.- Daytona owner) is still in the club.
