Our First Ferrari 308GTS

Well my brother owns a Ferrari and Maserati Service shop here in California and this car came in to get restored and sold since the original owner had passed away.

My dad loved the car and wanted something we could all trade off driving on the weekends. We were able to work out a deal with the family and scored this car for great deal. This is our first Ferrari but im sure it wont be our last now.. lol Since we picked it up we have been upgrading a few things recently. LED Replacement headlights, 16" QV Wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Tires and just getting the car as reliable/driveable as possible.



1979 Ferrari 308 GTS (carb car)

36k Original Miles,
Sat in a barn for 15 years

Truck-Lite 7" LED Lights (Plug-n-Play replacement)


If you guys have any other questions just let me know...


Mike

The dogs name is Bubba, he's a 4yo Blue Nose Pit that we rescued.. He works as a good security system for the car now. haha

Lovely dog & cracking name

This place could do with a pet/mascot to lighten the mood imo
