Im a member on the Ferrari forums lol.
You are completely wrong! I know of a 82 308 GTSi with 82000 miles on it that has yet to have a clutch replaced (Yes Original Clutch!) nor major service done to it by a dealer. CV joints still in tact and the 3 liter V8 still pulls hard. These cars can be just as reliable as a Camry, but you hear so many stories because people don't know how to care for a car. Re-builds aren't the case for ever F over 2 decades old. That being said, glad to meet another Ferrari connoisseur
