308 GTB Home !

The 308 GTB is finally back. Took it out for a long drive up through the hills this morning. Running better now than it ever has, above 4000 rpm it really comes into its own. Putting the original seats back in has really helped. The cabin now feels much larger and headroom has improved. Here are a couple of pictures of interior and engine bay post service.

The racing seat belts are still installed, they will be swapped over for originals in the near future.

But make sure the 308 is between the F40 and the Porsche. You don't want the Porsche in the middle. (OK, I don't want the Porsche in the middle.)

I agree with Pete.

The 308 seems like a good "buffer zone" between Maranello's finest and the German killer

It is going to be a while before all 3 are in the same place again. The F40 left for Maranello on the transporter last Friday and it will be a couple of weeks at least before it is back.
