    All the big full framed full bodied muscle cars are like that imo. Even when you did get them under a 12 sec 1/4 mile, they were still big and boaty and wouldn’t turn or stop no matter what. Some things are best left in the fantasy realm of the kind.

    Isn’t this thread basically about being in fantasy realm to begin with?

    Are we looking for something to drive and enjoy and show off or just cool factor?
    Or are we buying as an Investment.

    Because the Delorean would probably fetch the most at auction but they are slow, turds to drive....

    If I want the most people to come see it would be the Ambulance from Ghost Busters. Those bring huge money too.

    My ongoing benchmark for performance is the current year Honda Odyssey. I know ...

    I'd never own one and I'd point and laugh at anyone who thought it was a performance vehicle because, you know, Honda Odyssey.

    But I'm pretty sure a Honda Odyssey is faster and would turn a faster lap than everything in the OP. Maybe the Testarossa has a chance against it. But only maybe. Perspective.

    Outside of Magnum's, that's the first Ferrari that ever got my attention. How pedestrian its specs are today, 0-60/5secs and 150mph top end, IIRC.

    cha0s#242 Ignorance and prejudice and fear walk hand in hand

    There is a video on YouTube where they drag race a Magnum PI Ferrari and a DeLorean against a V6 Camry and the Toyota destroys them both lol

    Okay "Ponch" :)

    Was it the chance to play with the lights, sirens and gizmos? Helmet and sunglasses could be acquired at the local toy shop. :)

    I probably stopped being interested as soon as I determined there was no way I could or would ever own one so, it's probably my recall. :D

    You're right about the 0-60.

    I tend towards plain but the fruit stuff can be good if it's a real good compote made in house versus canned pie filling or the like.

    I wonder if the 150 figure was speed limited for the US. ?
     
  19. HPPT

    HPPT !!!

    With that small production volume, I'm even surprised that the bothered homologating the car for the US.

    And I'm always missing the opportunity to acquire automotive gems.
    I had the chance to purchase a street-ready Lamborghini Miura in 1980 for $25K from a dealership in Germany, which I could have afforded. Fifteen years later, they were selling for $1M. :(
