Magnum, PI or Miami Vice ?

Sounds simple to me (Magnum), but some people may have a different opinion. I just want to know what the majority is...

Easy, it has to be Magnum! Miami Vice just doesn't hold up.

Never watched Miami Vice, so I guess it has to be...

If you are asking which had more influence on my Ferrari buying, both came way too late.

There's enough attention span to say both. magnum for igniting the spark.... Vice for keeping it going.

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

I'd say tr(biased) but wouldn't mind a Daytona, but I think comparing a Daytona and Testarossa is out of the question as there is almost no comparison

Since the Daytona was a fake I'd say TR all the way. Loved Crockett's expression when they blew it up!

Now if you're talking real.... well..... Daytona spyder for the win!

Yes.... once the Ferrari on the show became famous, Enzo filed a lawsuit against McBurnie replicas because they were using the Ferrari name and styling.

I believe Ferrari actually supplied the TR in the show for free. Lots of advertising for virtually nothing.

Yep..... two actually. A third TR was used for stunts. It was based on a DeTomaso Pantera.

Miami Vice solely because it's got that classic Scarface/1980s Miami backdrop to play around with. Nothing against Magnum - it's classic TV as well - I just love the leisure suits and clear blue waters of Vice.

The first Ferrari I have ever worekd on was a 308 GTB.

Thou, with that said I am a nostalgic bastard. So, Testarossa or 512 is what fires my heart up.

However, I think you'll love em both. Apple or Orange. Vee eight screaaaam or flat twelve thunder.

You lift, I accelerate.
