    I don't know about you but I'm DEFINITELY bidding whatever it takes since it has an analog clock!

    I suppose nobody will ever accuse this car of being "over-billed" or misrepresented.

    Often I wonder why the auction companies don't hire a professional writer with automotive knowledge and a marketing/sales background to create better listings. (Of course, I AM a professional automotive writer with extensive marketing experience!)

    Be sure to count the cylinders. They said "eight".

    Heh...the Oil Pressure Gauge is what sold me :rolleyes: Was the writer even positive the car is a Ferrari? I mean, it does have a horsey badge on it... ;)

    Don't forget that it is the ultra-rare 328 GTSi. Everything else (except the clock) is elementary. :)

    Yes, but the GTSi is not worth anything unless it has a tachometer, which this one does (whew). I've seen GTSi's without a tach, and, being an injected car (the "i", duh!) I walked away because everyone knows you need a tach with fuel injection.

    Hmmmmm......... could have been worse, they could have added that the car is "red".

    Real attention to detail eh........

    It is the "Kenwood cassette" that has me all excited...jeez how long since I have seen a cassette player in a car? I knew I should not have thrown out all those cassettes 10 years ago.......I guess the buyer will just have to enjoy the sound of the engine......damn

    The cassette really is the best as you can hit the truck stops for Dixie Chicks tapes and such.....how about the MILEAGE or the ever present BOOKS AND TOOL ROLLS or even the SERVICE HISTORY?????

    That's just crazy........analog clock, well that IS a plus..........LOL!

    Just when I thought I was personally hilarious, I read you guy's stuff! Great start to the day. Yes, 'count the cylinders... PLEASE!' You never know.

    Anyway, it's rotten descriptions like this that really do get massively over-looked and to anyone heading to Kruse, you may sneak up on an 8-cylinder, 5 speed bargain... with gauges!

    There's also a nicely done (and far better described) Pantera coming through. Probably more. Whoever's going, please report!

    Is that the Pantera with the engine in the back?

    Upon inspection I find two of my Ferraris are missing the analog clock, I'm pushing them out into the turtle pond, with the old washers and refrigerators.....

    There....fish cover, now. Where's my rod and reel????? :D

    This is indicative of the Auction scene, IMO....they have Ferraris but know the market on the street cars is pretty flat, so we get no love......

    GTHill you'll have to stop by and see Val's yard NOW, she's about killed me, but it's coming together!

    But does the tach work? Mine came with a tach, all right, but what it read was fiction! I eventually had to replace it. I've heard that 308/328 tachs are pretty notorious for not being quite right much of the time.
