Uhhh yes please. I like the older Ferrari models. The Testarossa is a dream car of mine. Id own one now if I could drive it reliably on a daily basis. But with those cars, they practically need a re-build every 10,000 miles. And its not cheap! An old Ferrari costs $3.00 a mile (maintenance). The newer ones are cheaper to maintain. Im a member on the Ferrari forums lol.

This factory Testarossa is pure art.



This Koenig Testarossa is pure sex.



Damn it... Now I cant stop posting pictures of the damn thing.

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

Not to mention, fluid flushes once per month.

That 2nd pic looks like a Nissan ZX thing! Who would commit such a crime with that body kit?

Probably not, I love ferraris no matter what year they are and I think they are works of art and I hope to own one one day, but I am too attached to my Camaro. And you can buy a 90's ferrari for semi-reasnable prices nowadays.
