    Default 512BBi out of the living room and back on road!

    After 20+ years of living room exhibition in California (the story goes), I have now returned a vintage Boxer to the streets. Some mandatory sorting out was required after such long storage as well as an intense detail, but this car makes me smile!! Original 15” wheels were set aside to be replaced with modern rubber on 17” rims with a gold powder coat. A SS exhaust replaced the tired restrictive mufflers, and the V-12 now makes itself known under acceleration.

    I always enjoyed the 308/328 design, but the uniqueness and added subtlety of the Boxer makes it my favorite of the era!

    Great car! How did you liberate it from 'living room bondage'?

    I think it was when the seller’s family decided a car doesn’t belong in the living room (even if it’s a Ferrari)!
