Still, it was indeed one of the best looking cars around, but that really was what it was - all looks and no performance. I had mistakenly assumed that because it was a Ferrari and it was red, that it was also fast and handled well. It literally felt like it handled like a truck. Very stylish, but a very stylish truck.
I'm glad that now that you sold the doggy 308, you can finally admit the truth! Which I posted on many threads, usually to be met with scorn by most. (I also had one, so I knew!). Crappy cars that are no fun to drive. (BTW, I saw your sale on eBay, congrats on getting top dollar for a repainted, over 50,000 mile '78/'79! That sales price was very strong).

959, sheesh, that's "over-penance!" Super cool, esp. since it's a "project" 959. Can't wait to see you dig into it!
