hello all.well as of monday me and my father will be proud ferrari owners. my father has always wanted a 308 and i have always wanted a car that we could play with together. as a kid we had a 68' charger that my dad broke a pushrod in a dragrace. anyway i came along and it sat unfixed for nearly 15 years. after much naging by my mom it was sold to a mopar restorer. now after a move and 7 years he got a itch for a play car for himself but my dad being the unselfinsh guy he is did not want anything that could not be enjoyed by everyone in the family. A JEEP!! is what he wanted. anyway about 8 months ago i noticed a red 308 in a dealer window that i pass every day on the way home from work. so 2 weeks ago i go in and ask what they wanted. 29,500. after some haggling i got them to go 25,000 out the door. so a few days later i brought my dad in to have a look at what i had found and he forgot about that jeep in a second. and i said i wanted to pay half so he would be buying a 79' 308 for $12,000. thats a thing you dont pass up. for a 24 year old car she is beautiful. needs a few odds and ends but the 17" speedline 3 pc wheels that come with her and the badges on the fenderd really set her off. i have never gotten so many looks from girls and guys while driving. it was a intoxicating feeling that my 22 year old ego really liked. i will attach a pic as soon i as i can. again i look forward to learning more than i have in the two weeks i have been researching these cars. even though my 400hp rx7 is a rocket compared to that 308, like they say there is nothing like a ferrari. thanks JOE BROSSEAU

Joe,
Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the Forum!

There are a few guys on here that know A LOT about the 308 so if you have any questions be sure and ask. I had a few minor issues with my '79 and the guys here were a huge help.

well i have my toys and it is about time my dad stoped listening to my mom and spent some money on himself. i am just glad to be a part of the process. i also have a 90' RX-7 turbo that makes 350+hp and a 01' suzuki gsx1300r hayabusa that i put a race exhaust and cams in and will do a tick under 200mph. i just got a gps so i can verify my 200 mph run when it happens. so as you can see from my growing toy list i dont plan on marrying any time soon,lol.

You want to go 200 mph. Sorry but my machine will only go 199 mph. Not 200 mph. Sorry.

oh you will hear lots from me im sure. i like to absoeb all the knowledge i can. i spent two weeks learning about 308's before walking into the dealer. and they admitted that when they see a guy my age they dont think to much. but when it turned out that i had learned more about 308's than they did it really turned the game in my favor. this is the best 12 grand i have ever spent.
