Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and have a couple questions. I presently own a 1980 Mercedes 450sl. Nice car insode and out with 77K miles, and have owned several English sports cars in the past. I have always loved the mystique of Ferrari and am considering selling/trading the Benz to purchase a 308GTS. What can you folks tell me about the 308? What to look for and LOOK OUT for? What is a reasonable price for, say a 1980 with 30K miles? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Thanks, Folks, for your thoughts. It may be a while before I start to "seriously" look for a 308. My wife thinks driving a Ferrari is too pretentious!! I was going to sell the Benz to help finance the 308, but she's putting up a fight! So, I'll have to try another method. As with many of the older exotic cars, the purchase price is probably the cheapest thing I'd run into; at least I've sort of seen that with the Benz. Just because it has an MB emblem on it, the price goes up fivefold. Anyway, Thanks again. I enjoy the topics and will visit you frequently.
Barry, if you don't already know, there is a great MB forum: Check it out. THE FOX
