I’ve been out of the garage for more than a week so I’m posting a second set of Ferrari videos as a poor substitute to reporting any real restoration work.
First up is an amazing video from Brandoli Egidio in Modena. No other video I know portrays the pure passion for restoring old Ferraris as well as this one does.
The Ferrari Mechanic
Paul Newman or simply ‘Newman’ to use his Ferrarichat.com handle is a mechanic turned expert Ferrari restorer. Driven by a palpable passion for the marque he is now recognized as an authority on Ferrari 308 and Boxer restorations.
The World’s Most Beautiful 308 GTB
And following on from that, here is the result of one of Paul’s remarkable restorations.
A Ferrari Tale
From restoration videos we move to some videos that simply celebrate the Ferrari 308 series. First up is Hagay Farran’s awesomely atmospheric video.
208 GTB Turbo
Another appreciation video but this time for the 308’s lesser known step-brother, the 208 turbo. These cars were produced soley for the Italian domestic market with a reduced V8 capacity of 2 liters for tax purposes. While the engine maybe different, that seating position is pure 308. Remember to enable closed captioned subtitles if they are not displayed automatically.
Finally some fun with Bertone’s edgy classic – a stunning mint green 308 GT4.
