AJ02 My late friend who died in the plane crash here a couple years ago bought 2 new Lambos in I think 1989 or 1990. He was living in France at the time, and he drove to the factory in Italy and wrote them a check for a new white Countach (sp?) and a new black Diablo. As soon as they delivered the cars to his place in France, he pulled the engine out of the Diablo and disassembled it to see how he could get more power out of it. He just said fuck the warranty. If it breaks, I'll fix it. Must be nice.

Nice engine bay pic and you always have great tips which begs the question, is your car ever in one piece for more than a month at a time?

If you take your time its really easy. They design them to just drop out the bottom as an assembly. I can have the engine out in about 2.5 hours.

Actually my seats are mint, I do cover them when I am not using the car to keep them nice. I also cover cars in the winter and keep them in a heated garage, must be because I am ashamed and hiding them.

c6matt I think you'd get a differnt response to the question on ferrari chat. I have a 90 348TS and love it, I also love my 00 ACR, very different cars. I did my timing belt / engine out and it really wan't bad. The reputation is ill deserved,IMO. If you get a clean example that's been taken care of its reliable and provides a wonderful sound as you go through the gears. The leather does not age the best, and some parts are expensive (castings/body panels) but for operation the parts are cheap if you take a little time cross referencing. Crank sensors are also used on a KIA, Fuel press regs are used on 90's volvos, ect.
The last of the manual steering cars, and standard non electronic coil overs, the last analog Ferrari. I would expect more here to appreciate a no frills performance car. I dont have a pic of it with the viper, guess my mustang will have to do.

The 89 you were considering is a bit of a unicorn with a 1 year only management system. just FYI

RobV what price you getting it for? and are you getting it because you like the looks or just because it is a Ferrari?
I am sure you will be disappointed driving it as you will be comparing it to whatever modern car.

Parts are expensive even doing the work yourself, it is an old car. I'd get a tight pussy hooker then a old loose one.
