Here’s some very important consumer advice for all of you Ferrari owners out there reading this: when you’re going to put your vintage F-car up for sale, don’t leave your private jet out of frame! Roll both those bad boys out onto the tarmac for your winning photo-op.


You might think. Hey, this Ferrari is great! It has a five-speed gated manual shifter. It’s red! The roof comes off! I don’t need to put my private jet in the background of any of these photos.

That’s where you’re wrong. Everybody’s Ferrari 308 is red, with the gated shifter, with the roof that comes off. You need to stand out.


I know it’s another phone call to the operations manager at the airstrip to make sure nobody crash lands trying to avoid your Ferrari doing “verified ground speed” checks pre-sale, but trust me it’s worth it. Bidding on this particular 1982 example on Bring A Trailer is already at $43,000 with two days to go.
