I am registering because I will hopefully be buying a 308 in the near future, and after browsing previous threads a bit, this seems like a good forum.
Whereas this would be my first Ferrari, I have been around 308s enough over the last few years to know them fairly well for a non-owner. I have been a fan of exotic cars my whole life, particularly those of the 1970s and 80s. My current fleet of cars includes two Lotus Esprits and a 944; past European cars include another Esprit, four 944s, a Series III XJ6, and a Lancia Scorpion (plus about 25 GM and Mopar classics).
I do all of my own work, and have pretty much been doing so since before I learned to drive. I have good sources for technical info on 308s, but I'm sure I will be popping on here with questions!
In my (humble) opinion, the Lotus Esprit S1, 308GTB, and Maserati Merak are the three most beautiful cars ever made, and I am a huge fan of Giugiaro's and Fioravanti's designs. A 308 or Merak has long been on my want list, but somehow I kept buying Esprits!
If all goes well, that should be changing soon.
