    The Diablo is a special piece of kit, but as every other older Italian car it breaks down every 500 yards and costs a fortune to keep in order. Naturally, the same can be said for Ferraris and Alfas. Porsche owners that have a bit of a "rainy day" often visit Ferrari 348 or 355 forums, read about the endless list of problems and suddenly get in a much better mood. Newer Lambos like the Murcielago and the Gallardo are built after Audi bought the company and are much better. Even if it's a letdown to find interior parts that you also find in an A4.

    No, give me something German every day of the week. I'm currently in a new-ish Porsche 911 and love it to death. I can use it every day, even in snow. I can drive to the track, drive it hard all day, and then drive it home again when the tires are almost used up. Try that in a Ferrari... Or try to find a Ferrari like this:






    Now you may argue that Ferraris or Lambos have more "soul", but for me, excellent engineering always wins my heart in the end. Just like a very fine piece of hand-made precision engineering in an exclusive timepiece.
    I love this photo and I appreciate fine engineering. I'm not gonna work under any cars and open any watches but, ya know, I appreciate from a far. Usually from the waiting area of Valley Motors Mercedes. LOL

    I don't repair cars nor watches, but I do appreciate when something is built by people that put great pride in making and outstanding product, and one that is built to last "forever". The last point is even more important in todays world where companies have learned about a little something called planned obsolescence...

    Anyways, my point was my love for great engineering. And you wont find that in a Corvette or an old Italian car. But they do got soul and I understand why people like them.

    What?

    Just by looking at the most popular car site here in Sweden (www.garaget.org) there are about 500 Corvettes registered.

    Corvette and Mustangs for example are viewed as muscles cars here in Europe and some people love that, but they have never been viewed as an exclusive car.

    Good post Posh!

    Thanks, Coca!

    The Corvette is one of those things that defies explanation, like Donald Trump's hair.

    I definitely believe the world lost something beautiful when Overfinch went into receivership. Maybe someone will purchase the brand and it'll be reborn. One can only hope.
