    Now that I've got my water in the gas tank issue resolved, this thing's back to being my every day car. It's dirty as heck, too. It's my grocery hauler, kid hauler, and more. I even used it to pick up 100 pieces of anodized aluminum panels from my metal work shop recently. People seem to really dig the idea of seeing a Ferrari used for every day kinda driving.

    Uhhh, Lady MacBeth, I don't know what you're talking about. Your Mondial doesn't look all that dirty to me. You can't tell me that the black hides the dirt. Then again, this is mine from about five minutes ago:

    I assure you, mine is definitely wearing a dusty patina...the photo didn't seem to show it quite like it looks in person. Hasn't been washed in two months, it's gone through a few rainstorms, and it sits under the elevated train tracks at work, so it gets rust colored dust and water drops all over it.

    See that rear quarter panel above the side lamp? That's not a reflection.

    I agree, I don't have a problem getting it dirty because it offers me to opportunity to wash and baby the car afterwards.
    I love spending the afternoon detailing the car, I find it quite Zen...along with a couple of cold beers!
