this is going to be tough because it's not like most people would advertise using the words "gated manual"

I'm surprised 308's have jumped that much. I could've sworn, a couple years ago, you could buy 308's for mid $20K

355 is one of my favorite Ferraris...but I'm pretty sure I remember reading they are HORRIBLE to own...the engine HAS to be pulled every 3 or so years IIRC for service, for example...and that is rather pricey unless you can do it yourself.

I mean, that's most Ferrari's, but I do remember also reading the 355 was especially bad.

Also I'm fairly sure the tops were off the entire time, because Tom Selleck wouldn't have fit otherwise. Shit I sat in one, and I'm only 5'11" on a good day, and I barely fit.

On that rally we did I was shocked to see this thing as the camera car. Like mentioned, I though these things were highly problematic. So let's take it on a rally! haha The license plate is great though.

It is so small too. The camera guy was really nice. But he was a heavy set dude. So seeing him hanging out of the car for pics was funny in itself. lol20190305_133242.jpeg

When it comes to maintenance, on a lot of cars step one is remove the engine. lol They are designed that way so taking them out isn't horrible in most cases. Easier to spend 3 hours taking it out than trying to do an impossible task in an engine bay with no access.


I have seen someone drill into a bumper of a Ferarri, with the owner's approval, to save hours in R&R on a bumper to drain a differential. So ya, maintenance on some of these cars is a little labor intensive. :rofl:
