Hello Mondial owners and all other Ferrari owners! I am currently preparing to upgrade from my '88 Alfa Spider to a Mondial cabriolet QV. The spider is at http://www.rossored.com Of course, I prefer red on black and a 3.2 if I could afford it. But color is superficial (or is it?) What I wanted to ask is - what to look for when finding "that" Mondial. A few things first: I want to buy a 'driver' - I plan on 5 - 7k miles per year; car shows (non-concours) and day trips. I'm experienced enough to do the typical 308 major service job myself, I have shop/hoist/lathe/gearpress access any time I want, and I'm good with Bosch Jetronic systems (Oh what fun....). I do like a car that needs regular tuning - but not a heavy flow of parts($$$ ouch). That said - What should I avoid? What are the problem areas on Mondials? What is typically hidden from the average buyer? Any advice is appreciated! Anyone in Michigan/Ontario who has a Mondial, and would like to spend an afternoon showing it off - I'd love to visit. You can even drive the Alfa Spider if you like.
