    I think you can count on the swap shops car as being the real deal

    There is only one possible way to tell if you have the real thing.

    You must post a picture and see if the panel says that it's one of them.

    Welcome to F-chat. Please fill out your profiled.

    Lock and load!

    Is the other car still white? Supposedly after Ferrari gave them the 2/3? black TR's, they realized that they were hard to shoot at night, so they repainted them white..... Would be interesting to know if this is true or just an old story.. what is the s/n of this newly found car? curious how close it is to Mr.Henn's car..

    Yes. The v neck t-shirt, silk blazer, and rolled up sleeves is a timeless look.

    2 of the cars were black metallic, not to be confused with solid black. Then painted white.

    MIAMIVICE.COM ---------- SAYS
    The Swap Shop is a giant flea market located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, best known to Vicers as the location of a Ferrari Testarossa that is claimed to be the "actual car used in Miami Vice". What evidence do they present to prove this claim? None - as far as I am aware. Photos of this vehicle can be seen here:

    The one at the Swap Shop is one of the real Miami Vice Testarossas.

    Please share the VIN (or otherwise send it by PM to me) and I can tell you more about "your" car. I have to look things up, but I thought that one of the cars was once given away by MTV and was later auctioned on Ebay ... but that's just from memory ...

    if you are in miami, how hard is it to drive a few miles up the road to FT Luaderdale, go to the swap shop deal and see the VIN for yourself?

    Post both Vin's here and you will likely get all the info you ever need.
