    Default Never drive your childhood dream car !

    Just had a drive in a mates Ferrari 328GTS (the one like Tom Selleck used to drive in Magnum) and OMG it's not an easy car to drive !

    Firstly it's damn hard to get into without knocking yourself out on the windscreen, the pedals are so close together that you catch the accelerator when you go for the brake, the gearbox is dog legged so 1st is left and down and the clutch is either on or off ! No slight bite before it engages !!!

    I had a nice little 10 mins drive in it, but was i glad to get out of it !



    He told me if i ever want it for the day, as long as i had insurance on it, it was mine ! Errrrrrrm, i'll think about it Ashley !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Just replace the running gear with a 1.9cdti. Then it will be a great looking AND drive better!

    He wants me to show him how to detail it ready for the shows this summer, so this drive and the offer of borrowing it is just him trying to butter me up !

    Quality.

    That said, i'd kill for a ten minute blast in an automatic Cortina 2.3 S.

    Then ten minutes in a Firenza 2300.

    Should I be embarrassed or have I just got a thing about 2.3's?

    One other thing. The handbrake is on the rightside of the drivers seat and right where you swing your legs in, so you have to park with the handbrake off and have the car in gear, get out the car and then apply the brake !
