Ferrari Thread

Post by Groovzilla » Thu Feb 08, 2018 1:38 pm

Only photo I have of my 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS
18K miles w/rare black leather interior.
Found it in San Francisco back in 2001.
Fortunate to have guru mechanic Ray Segale whenever work is needed.

Is his name Tom?! :P

I had the chance to sit in one of these at the dealer's auction a few years ago. It was, ahem, a little tight for me.

That ferrari on Magnum PI is a quattrovalvoe GTS which were made 1983-1985 - My 308 GTSI had carbs.
Yeah i'm 6'1" and 35lbs overweight and imagine would now be tighter - I must have been maybe 20lbs over back then and it was a tight fit but doable - *Much much more comfy than the Testarossa** - Testicle-rossa unbelievably tight and uncomfortable - I'd imagine a 5'7" thin guy would be ok in it.

Speaking of Ferrari, a V12, front engine, gated shifter Ferrari is definitely on my bucket list.

Back in the early 70's the place where I bought my TR4 parts also sold Lotus. I wanted a Europa so bad I could taste it. While drooling over the one on the showroom floor the owner came over and said "try it on!". I was early 20's 6'2" about 150#'s dripping wet. I tried for about five minutes, couldn't get my legs past the door threshold and gave up. Owner came back and said "Yeah, I didn't think so. These were designed for the average sized European man, which is about 5'7"." What a puke!

The Ferrari that still makes my pubes stand out straight to this day is the Ferrari 288 GTO. It's the sexiest got-damn Ferrari ever made in my opinion and was the first Turbocharged Production Ferrari street car if I'm not mistaken. If that car was a woman, she'd be my Kate Upton.... lol

Scroll down to V12 engine, turn sound way up, click start engine, hang on! If that doesn't make all your hair stand up you need to go to a Doctor...stat!
