    so just bought it, should receive it in Miami in 2 weeks or so....looking forward to it, never owned a Ferrari, so it should be quite the experience.

    I am sure I'll be getting great info from here. So thanks in advance.

    A well sorted Ferrari is always a good entry into our passionate hobby.
    And a Mondial has room for three more future Farrosta..

    Enjoy in good health.

    You should go pick her up and drive her home.



    I mean you are not buying an unknown entity from ebay.
    This is a well-maintained car, I would have the confidence to drive her the distance.

    Hello Luis, welcome to fchat. Congratulations on buying Howie's Mondial, probably one of the best out there. We are also Mondial owners in Miami, ours is an '87 3.2 Cab, same colors as yours. We should make plans to get all the Mondials in South Florida together.

    oh my god, I am in love with this thing.....every friend that has seen it is blown away by it....I think I will single handedly raise the price of Mondials, every friend of mine wants one!!!

    amazing....what an incredible feeling....specially at low rpms, deep sound....a bit surprised that over 4,000 its actually a bit quiet.... magic.

    When folks see a Mondial in person, they generally like them, a lot. It is all the internet experts who have never seen or driven one who bash them. I have seen folks run past a 458 to look at my Mondi at a show, it looks like a Ferrari to them, and they love it.

    My Wife has commented that the car is quieter at higher RPM's too, glad to oblige her by revving the Mondial up a bit too, lol!

    Congrats and enjoy her!

    Nice o'l things aren't they...
    We are off out in ours tonight for dinner...... 4up as usual for the weekend. Everybody loves a Mondial, it's very sociable.......it's like my old Aston Martin V8 but without the dreadful build quality and reliability of an Aston Martin.

    this bring such a big smile to my face...

    another happy customer!

    :)

    Remember, don't take it above 4,000K until the oil temperature gauge (lower right hand corner) is at the first optimum tick mark. The manual says to use water temp first tick, I prefer waiting another couple minutes for the oil temp..

    Enjoy and drive in good health!!!
