moike: Dr Jack Badofsky: moike: Dr Jack Badofsky: Dr Jack Badofsky: Waldo Pepper: Put tires on a guy's 1969 Ferrari 365GTC Coupe a couple years ago. Only had 12,500 miles on it. Arrived to the shop on a flatbed and left the shop after the new tires were installed on a flatbed. 

one of the sweetest sounding cars i've have ever heard.

One of the sweetest sounding "V8"'s I ever heard was a Ducati (966 maybe?) back in the 1990's on the 91fwy  in SoCal.  I heard that motor approaching for a while, and could not pinpoint what was making that noise.  Then the bike passed me at about 50mph or so (traffic was busy, but not too heavy), and it was such a wonderful sound.

P.S. I know it's a V-twin, but man that thing sounded like the smoothest V8 I ever heard.

They sound wonderful till you pull in the clutch...

Then you'd think someone threw a handful of nuts and bolts in a Vitamix blender.

Damn.  Typical Italian craftsmanship.  The thing looks and sounds like sex on wheels, but has the durability of  Humpty Dumpty.

...Except the Monster.  It's not all that attractive, but I still wouldn't mind riding one.

I've had many Ducatis, and a 1996 M900 the longest...  The two valve air/oil cooled twins are dead reliable.  And there were days I'd ride the Ducati to work because my supposedly-reliable BMW or Suzuki wouldn't fire up for one reason or another.

Nearly 20 years old, over 40k hard miles, trackdays, stuntriding, and she's still going strong...

The family I grew up in was mainly offroad.  Our first bike was a '75 Suzuki TM75, and we quickly grew into a couple DS', then a PE175, and into the glory years of Japanese motocross innovations in the 1980's.  Water-cooling, disc brakes, single-shock rear and long-travel suspension, it was a great time to be a teenager.  We had road bikes too (took my road test on a '85 FJ1100 at 17), but never got into track days with those (too expensive). I have ALWAYS wanted to get into road racing, and almost bought a 1986 GSXR-750, but was outbid.  That bike to me was the two-wheeled equivalent of the Countach.  But, ver time, I've realized "Suzuki" and "reliable" are not terms that are mentioned in the same sentences much. Any more.  Too bad, as I tend to root for the Suzuki motocross/supercross teams.
