    It looks like that "Chroma-lusion" paint they put on Mustangs and Camaros for a couple of years until the insurance industry put a stop to it (too expensive to match properly, I believe was the reason). It's very attention getting...on a Mustang or Camaro.

    I agree with you. On a 348 it's very "Ghetto Fabulous".

    What's up with the Staples "easy" buttons for air filters? Anyone seen that before?

    That's one of the roughest looking 348s I've seen listed in a while. Interior looks VERY tired, and some of the pictures look like pieces are missing altogether.

    I can't fathom the engine surprises waiting for the lucky buyer.

    The pictures at the NJ gas station give it the feeling of delivery photos, so the new owner probably hasn't had the car for long (and wants to sell, shocker).





    The photo of the Texas license plate in the front trunk probably means that this was the Dallas handicapped equipped 348.

    Ghetto or not, I applaud the handicapped for driving Ferraris. That being said, the photos of the TV screen in the dash, then not in the dash (air vents), and the missing factory A/C + heater computer center console leave something to be desired.

    And what did they do with the OEM leather seats?! Like no one will notice that they are gone?!

    At least the hood & the paint customization appear to be top notch.

    Replace the video screen with a better custom stereo, replace the hvac... and you've got a decent custom ride.

    BUT - I'd only pay $25k as resale = 0.

    I love that colour. It is called Mexican Fire, by Dulux Paints. :D:D

    I have the same colour on my old Ford Fairlane. ;);)

    It doesnt suit that 348 though. Next.......

    one thing I've never seen is a great color-combo with that style of paint. Wouldn't black and silver be so much cooler on a Ferrari, maybe black and red, or silver and blue? Come on, rich guys, whose gonna be the first? On an old car like Pap's the rainbow would be sweet, definitely add some new flare to a true piece of history, but the lines of the 348 get all messed up with so much color input.
