I've found a few sites with cars that are available, as well as some of the stand-bys (ebay, duPont--$$$$$$$$)... and was just curious as to the better sources for used cars (likely a 328 or 348). also... I've found some dealers with cars available that are interesting, but have no way of checking their reputations... can you guys help me out with that?

Right here is a good place to start - look in the classifieds. Also the Ferrari Market Letter.

The Houston Chapter site has a Classifieds page including a link to a number of sites that carry exotics. This list is not an endorsement of any of these businesses.

http://www.fca-houston.org/Classifieds.htm


The FCA national site has a Links page that contains links to Ferrari dealers, most of whom have inventories.

thanks... most of the dealers on the fca site and the ferrari NA site focus the inventories on newer cars, and I don't think anyone is interested in selling a 456GT for $50,000.

the houston site is new to me... I'll def. check it out.

If anyone is looking for their first Ferrari,and dont have alot of cash up front,and mechanically able to put in some"sweat equity" Theres a guy who always has ads in the Hemmings motor news under Ferrari cars,and F parts. Hes located in north Phoenix,AZ. (www.italianauto.com ) He always has some 308 or 328 that needs some bodywork,or,"TLC",in the high teens to low twenty thousand dollar range. Look at his website,he posts pictures showing whatever damage there is. And he does 288GTO rebodies,fiberglas door skins for those rusted out doors,tons of new and used parts,you name it. I checked out his place last year and hes got a really nice setup. Very knowledgable,too. For example,hes got a silver 1987 328 with a front end hit,that does not look to be too difficult a job to fix,for $22,500.00 42k miles. And,theres more-always something different. I think he had an 80 or something 308,a few issues back for $16,000.00 Naturally,you probably need to be mechanically inclined to be able to do all or most of the repair work yourself. But,if that is something that you are looking for,then you should really check him out.And I think that hes got one on his site right now,that had a fire,and needs alot of work,for $10,500.00 Definitely,not something for the faint of heart,weak of mechanical ability to take on. But,if you have a place to put it.lots of time,the know-how,(and,dont forget-some $$) This could be a nice winter project or something.(or,put it on a 4 wheel drive chassis,with a blown 454 up front-with some major tweaking-to the chassis,hey,who knows!)

THANK YOU!!!! my brother has repaired several Challenge cars over the years (race & restoration body work guy), and I've managed to keep a nit-picky 20-year-old BMW running... so I think we can manage "mechanically inclined"

No problem!! I "cut my teeth" on old muscle cars,when I was a teenager(1970s) A 66 GTO for$300.00! Made it nice and pretty. A 72 cuda for $500.00 lots of work,but back in those days,when you opened up the hood,all that you saw was engine.And could tear em apart and put em back together in a weekend, (or at autoshop class in H.S.)I could go on & on. But,when I got into my 20s,my passion turned to vettes. Luckily,chevy /GM parts(not too expensive) And now that i am in my 40s,(actually,wanted the 308 since I was 17-it took 23 years until i could buy it AND afford the upkeep!)I have a really nice 308 that really doesnt need anything,now. But,when I (ever)get my achin back"fixed",would like to buy some orphaned and abused Ferraris,and fix em up and sell em,reasonably,so that younger guys can "keep the passion of the prancing horse,and her older models alive & kickin!" But,yeah,Mr.hooper at www.italianauto.com will be able to help you out. And I am glad that I was able to help you out. Good Luck!!!! FrankieFerrari308

Another possible source for "less expensive" exotics,probably needing some work. I got these out of Hemmings Motor News,too. But,have not personally bought anything yet,or checked them out in person. But,their name is is "kim motors" in petersburg,Va.- www.kimmotor.com- usually has lots of vettes that need work,for sale. but,I have seen exotics & specifically,Ferraris advertised by them,pretty cheap,once in a while. And,there is "Gullwing Motorcars" in NewYork,-www.gullwingmotorcars.com- check them out,too once in a while. They mostly have vettes,but,I have seen all kinds of european exotic cars advertised by them,too. as a matter of fact,I am gonna check out both of those websites right now,to see if theyve got anything interesting for sale.

Also,check out Hemmings regular ads under "Ferrari cars for sale" prices appear to be down,right now,and there are always several 308s in the $20,000.00 range, 328s in the mid to high $30s-$40,000.00 range. And I cannot believe all of the Testarossas in the $40,000.00 to $50,000.00 range. Those look like a great buy,right now, because I have a feeling that the old muscle cars are going to fizzle out,too many out there with non original motors,and such,commanding too much $$. Same with the mid-year vettes. $50,000. to $75,000.00 for an old chevrolet corvette,is NOT gonna last forever,either. There is starting to be a huge surge in popularity about everything Ferrari- just about every movie out,now,and a lot of tv shows(and through the years-magnum p.i.,miami vice,to name a few).And alot of people who would LIKE to own a Ferrari,do not have $200.00.00plus to get in. so,the next best thing is to buy an older model. dont forget,there were not that many made in the first place,and all the time some rock star,rapper,or bozo is totalling one out. making them more rare. Also,while watching the speedvision coverage,last year,covering the barret-jackson auction in AZ.one of the commentators said that the Ferrari prices are down,because the body styles look "dated" what a joke comment that was! and that if a guy wants to "arrive in a Ferrari" he wants to be in a "newer model" not an "outdated"older model,if he can afford it. Well,tell me about all the guys who can"afford"to buy a 2003 vette,or other domestic sportscar. Why are they plunking down big$$$ for old 60s & 70s cars? because,those are the cars that they grew up lusting after,and now have the$$ to buy one(or two) Well,same things gonna happen when all the guys who grew up watching Magnum & Miami Vice come into $$.So,I think that now is the time to get an older Ferrari,while you can,because,look at the 60s 275gtb/4 cars. last year were going for high $200,000.00 range.And this year,High $300,000.00 range. Very rare cars,high prices.Where else are you gonna make $100,000.00 in a year on an investment? Not the market! Certainly,a 308 or 328 is not the same as a 275GTB/4 or 365 Daytona. But,they arent Porsche 944s either(you know what I am talking about)And Testarossas-12cylinders timeless body style. Someday....But dont wait too long!!

You know,I was laughing about that too,after I read it after I posted it.I meant to say,"where else can you make a hundred grand in a year,AND have that much fun doing it!" As in being able to have fun DRIVING the car,and making $274.00 a day,plus, while doing it! But,you got my jist. Now,lets get back to your customers making over a hundred grand,last year.I will DEFINITELY have to get back to you on that!! ... Take Care!! FrankieFerrari308
