Hey Sean,

The car looks great in the photos. Congrats...I guess it passed the PPI.

I'd like to know how much it goes for also, so we can have future reference material of the prices cars are actually changing hands for.

Best, JRV

The PPI is being done Monday.

The PPI is being done Monday.

He's asking $28K for the car. Considering the engine mods, good service history, nice paint, it seems to be a good price for the car. My uncle drove it yestarday and he said it ran great, engine pulled strong, no squeeks or rattles.

PPI is being done on Monday.

The engine was done by Bill Gojkov from Enzo Motors in LA. I don't know if you've heard of him, but several on F-chat agree's he's one of the the best F-car mechanics in the LA area (and demands $$ for it too).

I was thinking of driving it back from LA but some think that is a bad idea. If something breaks, where am I going to find F-car parts in the middle of the desert? However, it's $1200 to ship it back and that's really pushing my total budget. I'm going to ask the PPI mechanic to give me a list of stuff to fix/change before the drive.

What do you think, am I a fool to consider driving it from LA?

Sean, congrats !

Sean, congrats !

If it checks out ok, you could drive it back.

Does it have working AC ? I10 will be hot


If it were me, I would ship her back. (But then again, I'm a pussy when it comes to rock chips and such, so take all this with a grain of salt.)
A cracked windshield from a rock chip from a semi truck on I10 will set ya back more then the shipping costs.

Hope all turns out well ! Let us all know.


When you get in it, ready to drive 'er back, say, First stop, Pinnacle !

Sean,

This is great! I hop


Sean,

This is great! I hope the car gets a clean bill of health!

I love the 308s. Probably my favorite regular run modern Ferrari (excludes 288GTO F40 et al). I would probably pick a 1995 F512M over it, but nothing else, Testarossa inclusive.

I say drive the car. Maybe not the whole way, but a good amount. It will help you get acquainted with the car. How the car behaves in different circumstances, etc.


Cheers

PPI tomorrow....everything els

PPI tomorrow....everything else so far has been perfect. The owner has represented the car well from day one.

I can't believe this. I've wanted one since I was a kid and by next week, it could be in my garage.
