The last photo in my listing (24th) shows the Mera ID zoomed in to show VIN, Mera Serial #, and Paint Code.


  1. Hmmm... does it come with a Hawaiian shirt, aviator frames and a big bushy glue-on mustache? I've already got the Detroit Tigers cap...

    Posting because I am one of those sad pathetic guys who watched Magnum PI *way* too much... and loved the look of the 308. But I could never bring myself to own a car where changing the oil involved dropping the engine...

  2. This one is literally down the street from me. I've seen it many times. It's a really decent fake in good condition, but it looks more fake in person than it does in photos because the size and proportions are off and it's more like a 3/4 or 7/8 size version of a 308. Anyone who has seen the real Ferrari will notice this one isn't quite right. But it will fool most non-car people. That said, I'd still drive the wheels off this thing, but it's already creeping past the price I'd want to pay for it. But, maybe I should go take another look, just in case.
