I wouldn't say "unlike most people". The 308 series has a very strong following, so you're in good company.
As far as expense, its hard to say.... depends on the car (gts or berlinetta, steel or fiberglass, carb or injected, 2 valve or 4 valve)... where you buy it.... your driving record. There's a buyers guide on this site that you should take a good look at. As far as maintenance figure on about $2000 a year. Fuel? I dunno... when it get low I fill it up. Its a toy so I never really consider fuel cost. Don't let that be a factor... they all suck down gas.
Most important thing to remember is get a pre purchase inspection done (PPI) and buy the best car you can afford. There are no cheap Ferraris. You'll pay upfront or you'll pay later. Oh and be sure you have a line on a competent mechanic or you'll run the risk of draining your bank account and ruining the joy that comes with owning one of these rolling pieces of art.

It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....
