Well my girlfriend decided to make the plunge and picked up a 1990 Ferrari 348TS (Targa style). Car has 23,000 miles and is in amazing shape. Black on black. Also has HRE 18" rims and 295 rear tires. I did also find out, that the exhaust on the car is Tubi which is an added benefit. I followed my girlfriend (Megan) home last night in my Acura, and the exhaust note just sounded too amazing to be anything other than a nice aftermarket. Looked under the back and saw Tubi written on the stainless exhaust! She also has a 88 Formula we picked up last year that she daily drives. She's one awesome girl! And can drive the heck out of the Ferrari. We are now in for the ride, hopefully I don't have to sell the house to pay for repairs And I will drive the car! Haha.

We are not rich or wealthy or anything. Both just work hard at our jobs. She pulled a loan out for the car for 5 years. It comes down that she wants it, will work for it and pay her bills to afford it. I told her, people will start looking past all that and go oh you got a sugar daddy or you have rich parents or think you are above you know, but that's not how it is. I love my Fiero still! And the funny thing is, it will beat that Ferrari bad in a straight line. Anyways, I wish I was rich. The car will need to be watched over, because it is very costly for repairs and there is some worry factor involved, but hey I guess you live once. She chose to be that person and do it how she wants lol. I can afford the payment, but I just don't have the balls to step up and do it. I still want a T-Top 88 GT over a Ferrari lol.

Amir, I`m just kidding around.
I think it`s great for someone to get the car they want.
Especially a classic/exotic.
And the people who might criticize are usually just jealous.

They don't like being daily drivers. There's a reason they tend to have very low mileage on the odometer.

Oh I know. You just know how the general society will be. Not you guys! I'm just a normal guy in Wichita, KS with a Fiero, house and a dog. Nothing to see here. Well that my Fiero can beat most Ferraris And as far as sisters, she does, but she is engaged lol.

Here is my girlfriend with her car yesterday when we picked it up from Oklahoma. She was kind of happy! As I am, because I get to drive it whenever I want.

You bet your life I am! Best part of birthdays is she wants car parts over girly stuff. It's kind of too much fun, because I usually order a few things for me while I am at it to save on freight lol

Great car and gorgeous gf. Dont let some fake sugar daddy snatch her away. The ONLY thing wrong with the picture is its a black car...and theyre a ***** to keep clean. I bought a brand new black Shelby Mustang once, and only had it a couple of weeks before a color change. The final straw was washing, polishing it all up for a night out. Left it spotless in a closed garage while I took a shower and changed clothes. Went out and it was already dusty just setting there. Enjoy both...

If you and her dont know...having and keeping ALL the maintanence records is paramount in owning Ferraris when you need service or selling it. Theyre as valuable as the flight logs of an airplane.

Oh my, ...........that is pretty.

(and yes, I am talking about the car !)

I like the stance of the car, kinda "Meaty" over the rear axle, almost like it has a wide body kit.
Kind of Pantera like.

About the only Ferrari's we see in these parts of the Great White North, are usually old 308's.
Never seen a 348 before. I really like the shape.

Is the rubber air dam on the front stock, or an aftermarket add-on ?
I think it would look better without it, more cleaner front lines.

But is her sister happy with her fiancée ?

Never liked blonds but with a car like that I could make an exception if she ever decides to get rid of you.

You are a lucky guy, don't screw it up !

It's there.

Interesting to see them side by side. I noticed the Ferrari isnt any shorter than the Fiero.
