They were quick enough for their time.
Drew Humphrey Nov 27, 2012
Was always underpowered. A really good-looking car, but not the quickest thing...

Magnum drove a 308 (black bumpers among other changes)...this pic is a 328 with the body-colored bumper style.
Alex Renaud Nov 28, 2012
Is this the model that Magnum P.I. used in his show?
Tyler Tarbox Nov 27, 2012
Personally I prefer modern Ferraris but this is still cool
Aaron Crisp Nov 27, 2012
Lou I'm glad you shared that with us. I am not being sarcastic.
Lou Guerrero Nov 27, 2012
Bought a framed picture of a 308 for $1 and I've hung it in the bathroom of every apartment I've lived in. Still have it. Still hanging. Now you know.
Alex Renaud Nov 28, 2012
Yeah, the scale of the texture on the cement on the ground and the stucco on the wall give it away. The car looks good for model, however.
Thibault Leroy Nov 27, 2012

Haha, that's funny. Hard to imagine anything walking on a 930 at the time.

Lou Guerrero Nov 27, 2012
Classic Ferrari interior is why.
Kyle Rawn Nov 27, 2012
I don't know why, but I love this interior.

V hahahaha
Tanton Stoneman Nov 27, 2012
That made me laugh so hard!
Lou Guerrero Nov 27, 2012
Ass-engined Nazi slot cars.

Yeah, buying a cheap used Ferrari will cost you a lot.
Michael Sakkas Nov 28, 2012
You can't get a good one for even close to 20k. A good one is is 30-35k. The ones in the 20's on flea bay are the USA 2valves with shitty service history,
Lou Guerrero Nov 28, 2012
Everyone knows that classic Ferraris are expensive. If you have a budget of $20K then look elsewhere because it will bury you. Some people can deal with it.
Lou Guerrero Nov 27, 2012
Well, Erich doesn't get classic cars. I suppose you want them all off the roads and crushed into cubes for being impractical and useless pieces of HISTORY!
Daniel Eads Nov 27, 2012
No, Tyler just about summed it up.
Tyler Ray DeFord Nov 27, 2012
Cause it's a Ferrari and its pretty
Matthew Mazzarelli Nov 27, 2012
You pretty much summed it up there.
