What car did you drive before you got the Ferrari? Was it fast?

I had a killer ZR-1 Corvette....about as "exotic" as it gets for an American car. Even though it would eat my TR for lunch, I've never regretted the move to Ferrari....not for a minute!
Mitsu VR4 with Hennessey performance upgrades. Yes, it was fast.
Kansas Jayhawks rock!
1975 Lamborghini LP400 Countach that I drove for 6 years, it was the fastest car I had ever had up to that point. I was going through tires like you would not believe. Traded it in on a 1981 Ferrari 308GTSi, not the fastest, but what has turned out to be the love of my life (a guy thing).
Started out like every average Joe, had Civic, Maxima likes, them moved to Lexus GS400, M roadster, had a 650rwhp '97 SupraTT, now roll in E46 M3 daily and 996TT fun/track. Looking to get into a F355. Wishfully a Modena in a year or two.
E46 M3, before that Turbo Carrera.
what is an E46 ? I know the M3 is a BMW.
A sled. SLow, economicial, and ugly.
E46 is the latest generation M3, 2001 and up.
Lotus V8 TT
I had a 86 Toyota Camry, then a 91 Lexus ES250 (a Camry with a nicer radio) before I bought my 365 GT4. The Ferrari was the first car I owned that was a manual gearbox.
BMW 330I Dinan, Audi TT, Porsche 928S4, and Harley Fatboy. All had to go for my 355 and two BMW's.
Porsche 914/6 bought it 1979 for ca. $ 1.200, sold 1981 for $ 1.000,-
Porsche 944 wonderful car and I still miss it
Porsche 911 Turbo

65 corvette convertible - powerglide
and my favorite:
2003 white chevy cargo van
it's a sleeper! LOL
'73 Camaro ZR-1-loved it at the time. Fast enough for a 17 y/o.
'79 Corvette- good looking but no power
'84 Corvette-not as good looking but pretty fast. loved the 4+3 overdrive
'96 Porsche 911 C4 Cabrio-fairly quick, but couldn't get along with the wannabes at the PCA.
'00 BMW 540i 6 spd-killer sedan
First F-car: '74 Dino 246GTS-beautiful but low on power
Next: '01 360 spider-quick as hell but twitchy at real speed
Next: '00 360 Challenge-quicker and even twitchier but what a blast
'02 Scooby WRX Turbo, heavily modified-my daily driver. rain, snow, whatever. $28k and can give most F-cars a run for the money.
I guess I should have mentioned what I have now & I'm trading up from: 72 240Z w/ V8, 2 Mazda RX7s & a Miata.
Aston V8 Vantage Volante, 63 E-Type Roadster, 63 Corvette Roadster, AC MKIV, and Yes years ago in college, I had a 1974 Alfa 2000 Spider, Still miss it as well. Same thing for my TR-5.
