Welcome to the site. Deff got some cool toys there. Gotta love the silver, the up keep is soooo much easier than most colors. Deff sucks putting toys away for the winter.

congrats on the jeep man! Also props on the 430 wheels on the 360, one of our clients recently put some matte black 430 wheels on his giallo modena 360 and it just looks great. Enjoy it here, lots of info and great people to go around!

Before putting them in hibernation, you should line em up and see which is quicker.

Nope, car is originally from NY but I am in Mpls, MN. I have heard Tug Hill is a good place to ride, but that's one hell of a tow from MPS to NY ... i've done that trip with a boat (ugh).

Trust me ... the jeep is a lot quicker than the Ferrari in a straightline (0-60, or 1/4 mile). Plus, the "drag race" would cost me a couple of grand worth of clutch wear just to find out my Ferrari got spanked by a "grocery getter". A 360 Ferrari DOES NOT like to be launched. The clutch will take about four or five hard 0 - 60mph launches and then you will be purchasing a new clutch to the tune of about $15k. Ouch! However, if you take it easy off the line the clutch will last a whopping 15,000 miles. I never thought of it but i guess that works out to $1/mile ... what a bargain

Nice cars man! Reading your statement above really proved to me how little I know about exoctic cars. I know its a Ferrari but that's one of the most absurd things I have ever heard. I mean I could put two and two together that maintenance and any repairs would be quite a lot more than compared to something like our Jeeps but for the clutch to breakdown that quickly I would have never known. Anyway congrats on the new Jeep she looks great!

Yup, absurd is a good word for the "longevity" of most exotics and that's why most exotics have LOW miles on them. I have 14,000 miles on mine and that's considered by many to be "higher miles" for the year/make. Like you said ... absurd!
