Where was that? Those things are hideous! If you are referring to what I want to do (since I was the only one mentioning 288's in this thread) I'd be starting with a 308 or 328, so it's the same frame and bone structure of the 288, and still built on an a Ferrari of the same era, so it looks perfectly indistinguishable. You're still into it for the 308 and 20k or so for the kit. Then another 20k to the body shop and paint. The transforming the interior (a pet peeve of mine) for close to 20k. It's got to feel and look right from the inside out! But then it's still just a 308/328, and not a twin turbo, so then you get to deal with the mechanicals. But hey, at least it's not $3mil.

So let me get this straight.

You are gonna drop a boat load of cash into something that will look like a 288 ... apart from the panel gaps and the screws where a replica kit will be pop riveted to a 328. It will then handle and perform like a 328 but be worth less because it's no longer original.

You'll know it's fake because you did this.

You might impress someone at the golf club for 5mins until his buddy points out it's replica. At which point the only person you impressed is gonna think it's a fiero.

Invest your cash in strippers and coke ... don't fritter it away like this! ;-)

More like the strippers and coke found in Barry and Neil's playground thread.

I think a 400 would be cooler.

Ha ha! :-) Coke and strippers would cost me way more in the divorce that even a real 288. LOL

The problem is that I really like the way the 288 looks! I couldn't care less that it wasn't a real GTO as it's still a real Ferrari. If you've seen my 90 you'll know that I'm not a total purist ;-) And the "kit" (at least the good one that I'm referring to) is more of a collection of parts, as it's a body panel replacement package, not a panel on body deal. I totally agree, those are shiite. It's not a Kahn kit! ;-)

It's not a matter of showing off, but rather that I really like everything about the 288. It's hard for a guy to look cool in anything non-vintage these days and I don't want to ever drive a 7 fig automobile. If it were the cheapest of the bunch, I'd still want it more than any other Ferrari. As far as showing off at the golf club, the only kind of appeal that I like is when I bring the defender :-) They won't even valet it , probably because they can't find the ignition or know how to drive a manual ;-) They just let me park it in front next to the "new" poser prancers.

Yup! Exactly. Great vid. Thanks. I've actually seen that before.

400's are interesting, for sure, and definitely true to the mark vintage. Bertone I believe. Same house that did the Countach. Had a 780 Bertone Volvo for a bit. Cool stuff. But if I wanted a 4 place tourer, I'd probably covet the Rapide.

I love it! Reminded me of my favorite W. C. Fields quote:

"I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol and wild women. The other half I wasted." ;-)

And, of course more poignantly, my other favorite quote regarding the debate between real vs. replica:

"...telling guys that fake means worthless, is like arguing with guys about fake boobs. If you can see them, touch them, enjoy them and be proud of them; for most....they're real enough." - RUSHAVED

Don't forget those darn mirrors and latches.

How could I have forgotten about those front lights? So obvious now. Good call!
