It’s somewhat amusing that the iconic Ferrari from our childhood, the 308, is slower than a late-model V6 Honda Accord, but Ferrari experienced lean years like everyone else thanks to emission requirements mandated by governments. As the successor to the hallowed Dino, the 308 cut a nice enough figure to become the Ferrari of dreams for a generation of folks.
For 1986, the 308 evolved into the 328 thanks to the V8’s increase to 3185cc. The classic shape remained, albeit with several contemporary stylistic and engineering tweaks. This 1987 328 GTB is currently on consignment at Forza Service, a shop that has the reputation of being the “Dutch Maranello.” Forza has been maintaining this 328 for over ten years, including the recent installation of new cam belts, so you know there aren’t any surprises that can be particular to Ferraris (the 328 is one of the fortunate that doesn’t require the lowering of the motor for maintenance). Tubi Style sports exhausts give performance a boost, but let’s be honest–they also boost the thrill of driving this Ferrari. It’s a thrill that has left the seller feeling despondent and compelled him to articulate the following:
I’m standing in my empty garage.
The assorted Ferrari posters, banners, and paraphernalia
All of sudden seem out of place.
A whiff of high-grade oil and the echoes of a sweet V8 still hang in the air.
This is what happens when ‘never ever’ becomes now
When an economic headwind blows dreams away.
Six great years. Enjoy your ride while you can my friends.
