    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!

    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).

    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.

    '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.
