It’s the weekend, and I thought I would do a poll this time. These are all low mileage Sports Cars, with varying degrees of desirability. There are two Ferrari Models, a Pantera, and a Fiberfab Jamaican Coupe. I know what you are thinking, that Jim has completely lost his mind again… only I haven’t. How many here can really afford a Ferrari F40? Or would you really want to drive a Ferrari featured in a Tom Selleck Television Show? So, let’s see what you really think about these four cars…
This is a 1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi, and it is really one of the best looking Ferrari’s ever. According to the listing:
This collector’s Ferrari made in Maranello, Italy, is a 1982 308GTSi that has been sitting in the Garage since it was bought back in 2009. It is in average good condition, with some details in the paint, no scratches. The black leather seats are in very good overall condition with no cracking or splits to be found. All gauges are in good working order as well as the lights, blinkers, windows, horn and wipers. It shows only 9069 miles. Originals tires size and wheels. The engine V-8 (308 GTBi/Si, Mondial 8 Euro version) starts with ease and runs perfectly. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts as it should. It has Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection. Very good condition.
The auction has ended with a top bid of $18,899, without meeting the reserve. All this car needs is you sporting that perfect porn stache that Mr. Selleck wears so well (Ladies, ask me what you should wear if you’re the buyer of this car…). See the listing here: 1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi
This is a 1974 DeTomasso Pantera GTS, and it really is my favorite of the four. According to the listing:
THIS IS A RARE DE TOMASO PANTERA GTS WITH ONLY 8219 MILES. THE XCAR BELONGS TO A FRIEND OF MINE WHO HAS A COLLECTION OF OLD CARS. HE BOUGHT IT FROM AN OLD FRIEND SEVERAL YEARS BACK WHO’S HEALTH WAS FAILING. HE NOW IS WILLING TO PART WITH IT. THE CAR HAS HAD SOME PROFESSIONAL PAINT WORK DONE TO IT. THE TOP OF THE CAR WAS SCRATCHED WHEN HE GOT IT. CAR LOOKS LIKE NEW.
This car has standard Ford Running Gear, so what could possibly go wrong? I think the dark red/black two-tone looks stunning, and this car has that bad-ass stance that all Panteras seem to have. With over two days to go, the top bid for this car is $47,599, with an unmet reserve. What do you think it will take to sell this car? See the listing here: 1974 DeTomasso Pantera GTS
This is a 1991 Ferrari F40… Yes, someone is selling an F40 on eBay. This car is priceless, rare, exotic, and way out of my price range. It has been said that this is the Exotic or all Exotic cars, and according to the listing:
1991 FERRARI F-40 5360 MILES PURCHASED CAR IN 03-06 WITH 2450 MILES HAD 30K SERVICE DONE ON 06-06 WITH 3257 MILES NOW HAS 5360 MILES. HAVE SOME PAPER WORK FROM PREVIOUS OWNER THAT CAME WITH CAR. CAR KEPT IN TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED ROOM ITS IN THE HOUSE (SEE PHOTO). DRIVER SIDE SEAT HAS WEAR AROUND SEAT BELT AREA (SEE PHOTO). DRIVER SIDE HEADLINER LOOSE.
This car isn’t cheap by any means, with a Buy-It-Now price of $645,000! You would think the seller would have a proper listing for a car of this caliber, but I guess I’m wrong. See the listing for yourself here: 1991 Ferrari F40
This is a 1980 Fiberfab Jamaican Coupe, and it really can’t compare to the previous three cars at all. It is a kit-car in the first place, and it is relatively affordable. It is still beautiful compared to your average Toyota or Honda appliance, and it will get reasonable fuel economy. But is it desirable? According to the listing:
HERE IS A VERY VERY UNIQUE CLASSIC COLLECTIBLE- CUSTOM MADE “JAMAICAN” COUPE MADE BY ‘FIBERFAB’
ADULT OWNED – I’M 65 YEARS YOUNG AND STILL ENJOY THE TOYS, BUT SOME HAVE TO GO (HAVE TOO MANY)
NOW IN FLORIDA ENJOYING THE CRUISIN’ ALONG THE BEACH’S HAS CUSTOM INTERIOR -‘ROLL AND TUFF’ STYLE AND VERY COMFORTABLE, HAVE THE VW ENGINE WITH FRESH REBUILD ON THE CARB, HAS CUSTOM AIR SHOCKS FOR LARGER SIZE TIRES 13″- TO 18″, HAS GM BOLT PATTERN – 5 BOLT AND HAS NOW THE CUSTOM ‘EURO’ STYLE RALLY WHEELS
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU SAW ONE OF THESE IN THIS CONDITION?? BODY
IS IN FANTASTIC SHAPE WITH ONLY A FEW ‘TINY’ LITTLE CHIPS IN FRONT- I NEVER TOUCHED UP AND THESE ARE HARD TO SEE.
THIS HAS A NEAT TILT WHEEL – GREAT FOR THE DIFFERENT DRIVER HEIGHT AND SIZE GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE CAR—-I’M 5’11” AND 195 AND FITS GREAT WITH ROOM TO SPARE. UNIQUE AND AN ‘ATTENTION GETTER ‘WHERE EVER IT GOES.
MILEAGE SHOWN IS REAL SINCE I’VE OWNED IT — AND SPOILER SHOW IS REMOVABLE, JUST ADDED TO SHOW WHAT THE JAMACIAN WOULD LOOK LIKE WITH ONE ADDED, GENERIC SPOILER,CAN GET ANYWHERE….. CHANGES THE LOOK I THINK QUITE A BIT…
I HAVE 12 CLASSIC TOYS AND DOWNSIZING MY ‘TOYBOX’– ASK QUESTIONS AND BID TO BUY.
The reserve on this car is under $8,000. The spoiler doesn’t go with the car (Thank God for that). It is an interesting car, and the current top bid is $2,550 with an unmet reserve. So, do you think this car is just as desirable as the others above, or am I completely Mad? See the listing, and you decide: 1980 FiberFab Jamaican 2-Seat Coupe
