FERRARI 308 GTB/GTS
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.
This car sported sleek curves, pop up headlights, rounded back lights and a mid-mounted 3L V8 engine.
Acceleration was zippy with 0-100mph in 15s and all 308's had a manual 5 speed all-synchromesh gearbox.
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 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?..
