    Instead of focus upon where he could put more stickers, he better had googled for some back view pictures of a Ferrari 308.
    Then maybe he would have avoided to install the tail lights inverted :)

    Those are not Vetro rear tail lights. The ones he's wearing come from a Fiero Mera(308 replica)
    Trying to find original Vetro rear lights is like finding rocking horse dung.....

    I have a personal theory about people that are gaudy. I worked with a man that had a pickup truck and a Goldwing both of which had every chrome bobble and add on light he could find space for. One day he brought to work an unusual stick he found and had polished and decorated it. I think these people have what ever it is that makes someone an artist, but they are laking the training or that little bit of "it" that makes a them a good artist. They have a need for a creative outlet but have no control.

    The guy obviously got a bit carried away but if its his pride and joy & he likes it then who are we to ridicule him.

    Its easy when you are lucky to own a Ferrari or two to poke fun at someone who hasn't

    Just saying........

    Car looks perfectly good to me from 20 feet. Wonder what the price will be when BHCC has it for sale next week?

    To be honest, it doesn't look a whole lot different to a Koenig conversion.

    pride and joy sure, I can accept the fender shields but really ?

    that guy must have some kind of identity crisis, he could be hiding something that's not original on that car...

    any case, it looks terrible...
