    When I bought my 85 308qv I bought it for 38,000 dropped another 10 into it and I was scoring 98 to 99 points out of 100 regretting selling it trying to save my home and I think I sold it for like 43 that was about seven years ago.I now know I will never be able to replace that car at that price but I'm sure I will find something to start over.

    Did anyone notice that it's got a Prancing Horse Twin Turbo kit on it?

    Being a fan of turbo'd Ferrari's I'm very tempted to get it, modernize the engine with EFI, intercooler(s), and see what the market would bare when I try to sell it. But it might be a big money loser.

    Yes, noticed that as well, but tend to agree with your last sentence - even though it would be a cool project, I think it would be a money loser.. takes a lot of money to rebuild a car like this and the market is not there yet in terms of pricing..

    I looked at your profile when you first posted. Nice car. The market may have shifted, but the good news / bad news is that it seems to be stable. These next couple of years will be interesting pricewise. You'll be fine.

    You better know what you're getting into if you buy from these guys. I visited their "showroom" and let's just say that I wasn't impressed with the facility, the cars, or the people working there. Also, they are located in East LA, not Beverly Hills.
