My first Italian car was a 77 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino and just like so many beautiful women in my life she spent all of my money and left me feeling hollow inside. I really loved that Ferrari but my Fiat Spider has made me happy. I purchased my Fiat while I had the Dino but the Spider has outlasted the Dino by 5 years now. The Ferrari was a great driving car and is perfect for our mountain Roads here in NC but so is the Spider. I would suggest if your dream car is Ferrari consider a Fiat unless your pockets are very deep.
