    Nice car, only thing that bothers me is only 350 miles in 2+ years (if I read that correctly). These cars don't like to sit, I'd definitely plan on a major within 1 yr..

    Gorgeous car. I'd say mid 80's now and potentially high 80's to low 90's in the summer. Wish it was in the 100s...of course I'm biased! :D :D :D

    I paid $93 for a 1999 6 speed from Sport Auto in North Carolina. I think I paid a little premium but the car was clean and Sport Auto is a known Ferrari expert so they could say whether or not the car was a pig, or had some story. The car I bought was a Black/Tan with 8500 miles. I would say that anywhere around 85000 to 90000 is a fair price, and red should be higher, but I wouldn't worry if it was more because the little bits will may any "great deal" look stupid. In an event, and regardless of how long it has been since its recent major, do a full leak down to look at the cylinder/valve condition. I looked at several 355's and the most beautiful 5000 mile car at NaplesMotorSports did not pass a leak down. I know that the car was otherwise perfect and the owner of NapleMotorSports would have made some real adjustments to the price to accomodate the gremlins but I opted to buy the car from SportAuto because all I needed to do was insert the key and drive. Just my 2 cents.

    The original window sticker shows the costs of the rear Challenge grill as $444---Now you can't touch one for under $1300---Inflation is a B^&*h

    Well more specifically it is the weakness of the Dollar against the Euro. And yes it sucks, big time !

    I have been to Europe 10 times in the last eight years. With the 15 hour flight and weakening Dollar I am staying stateside for a while.
