Hello and welcome back...2 things come to mind when i think of the Ferrari 308... Sleek &Sexy.
It was once said that if you were single and owned a Ferrari 308, in 10 years time, you were guaranteed a have a house full of screaming kids...You were that irresistible.

The Ferrari 308 was manufactured from 1975-1985 by the Ferrari motor company in Maranello Italy and replaced the Ferrari Dino 308.
This car sported sleek curves, pop up headlights, rounded back lights and a mid-mounted 3L V8 engine.
The 308 started life as a fiberglass shell until 1977 when they changed to steel adding 150kg in added weight.
Acceleration was zippy with 0-100mph in 15s and all 308's had a manual 5 speed all-synchromesh gearbox.

The 308 came in 2 models, the Berlinetta (GTB) and the Targa Top (GTS).
The early 80s saw an upgraded model known as the 308 Quattrovalvole, this model had extra valve work (more power),a new grill to aid radiator exhaust air,electric mirrors, a change in various lights and a new 3 spoke steering wheel. It even got a new Ferrari badge on the side panel...Nice.

Enter a man with a trademark moustache, floral shirt, baseball cap and denim hot pants/jeans that were 3 sizes too small.
Enter Magnum P.I played by Tom Selleck and a Ferrari 308GTSi owned by Robin Masters.
Driving around Hawaii solving crimes and helping young damsels in distress find their way, was all in a days work for magnum P.I

Why can't i get a job like that?..
