    jamesread11jamesread119 dagar sedan
    • The fibreglass cars around around 300 lbs lighter than the steel cars.. that was the reason that they started getting more popular.. Ferrari Club racers wanted the light weight bodies.. unfortunately, that means that a lot got Turned into race cars and damaged,

  • Funny little note, that line down the side, that sort of C channel type thing, that was a molding line between the two halves of the car for the fiberglass, and theirs actually another one in canada, the cold war motors guy was working on getting it running for a customer, also look how inset the bumpers are at 1:30, like their non existent and I hope that's not a habit at 7:37, like I dont know what the laws are in that location, but here, double lines mean do not pass, and theirs no run off if that goes wrong. but still what happened that this well loved car got put away like this, did he buy an 87 Quatrovalve, as one of the funniest things I've heard is that actually, the latter quattro cars are better than the early fiber ones as the weight balance is better, and the cars are faster and more powerful. as both James May and Harry Metcalf had, and sold both of them, Harry bought the testarossa, and loves the hell out of it, even though it was down on half a bank with its worn distributor for the longest time, including when it was on the grand tour which means it didnt get a fair test of how it would have been when new and james well, he had an old overthink crisis and put the thing fully back to stock, including the 14 inch wheels, instead of the upgraded 15's which makes a hell of a difference in how well they drive apparently and then was like, well this cars not that good and I'm kinda bored with it like preversely, ferrari actually made the 308 better as time went on lol still though the other thing is, these cars, well, each one is different, maybe this one has more power than both their glass fiber cars, as per the nature of handbuilt cars. if it was me, honestly the icon for me is the targa model, so I'd have to go with your black beater that you bought from the set of the hidden over it and sell it for that, also from 1987 ish lol although I probably wouldnt say that after driving it lol or either really lol as this one, I gotta say gives off good vibes, weirdly just even looking at harry's and James I had the feeling they were both mingers, this one, evidently might be a good one. I mean look at that mileage, and its condition, 80K miles and it was kept up this well, someone REALLY loved this thing, and you dont love a piece of junk like that.

  • This thing was already a 10-year old, 70,000 mile Ferrari with a bad paint job when it was put away, 34 years ago. Let's just hope that that underneath the steel bits are in a better state than the one in Ian Tyrrell's workshop! (seworld.info/will/hJ27tK6da5mYp58/video). They do have a reputation for hiding all sorts or ugliness.

  • I have an honest question about that VPN. When you shop parts in the US via VPN, how do you get them over to the UK? I think those additional offers didn't show up initially because the do not ship them, or how does this work? Apart from that, it is a stunning car. I would drive it, since I hate it when cars just sit around, flat-spotting their tyres.

  • I'm surprised at the amount of miles on it with no cracks in the fiberglass. That alone is amazing as with the old fiberglass Corvettes you have way more cracking and spidering on those bodies with far less mile examples than this. With the type of restoration the owner is doing it's obvious it's going to be enjoyed again maybe not as much miles on it but what he's chosen to do is the right redo.. not full restoration with that amount of miles.

  • Why do you think Ferraris of that era never really had good quality interiors or even good design. Gauges tucked away on the RHS of the steering column look like an afterthought and the column mounted signaling arms and so on are bits of bent wire and plastic. That juts leaves the God awful gear lever stick.

  • not trying to be offensive, but genuinely curious why are the fiberglass versions so much more desirable? is it cause they're early cars, or lighter, or rarer, or...? to me fiberglass always implies 'kit car', so not sure of the appeal. now, I do have a C3 Stingray, which of course is fiberglass but never available as a steel body, so am obviously not biased against fiberglass...no choice with corvettes. also, the paint on my corvette bubbled up the same as on this 308...was told it was the resin gassing off over the years...maybe, maybe not.
