308, One year from now
I am one semester from graduating, and following graduation if all goes well I will be able to find employment in my field and purchase my first car (technically, if I don't count a 1,500 dollar Honda which has lasted me 6 years so far and still running strong and a project 1966 Land Rover dormobile I am currently working on). I have what I would consider a 'down payment' for new vehicle, and after several former classmates of mine from either high school or college that have graduated within in the past year or two whom have mostly ended up with a new or nearly new BMW 3-series, Audi A4 and similar vehicles which I believe are all excellent vehicles but I am leaning towards a 1976 or 1977 308 instead of a new car.. and sticking with a 'beater Honda' for winter months
Ideally my first choice would be a 1975/76/1977 308 GTB fiberglass, but price may be an issue
My second choice would be an early carberuated 308 GTB steel body, from what I understand were produced 1976 throughout 1977 (please correct me if I am wrong)
And although it might be a sin, but if I were to purchase a steel body I would prefer any color than red. If a fiberglass GTB were to become available, the color in my opinion would not make a difference.
I realize my criteria might be considered fussy, but I would rather be patient and find a vehicle I truly want rather than purchasing the first 308 I come across
I apologize for rambling, but I am writing this post in regards to suggestions for places, whether dealers or individuals, that Ferrari Life members may have perviously purchased their Ferrari from and would recommend as reputable.
Although I am at least one year ahead of myself I would like to keep track and follow current sales and watch the market.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my post,
