The Ferrari.

If you've read my Cuba posts, you'll be well aware of my love for classic cars. I've been a lover of them since the tender age of about 12, so imagine my excitement when Uncle Gray announced he'd added a Ferrari GTB 308 (aka, the non-convertible version of the Magnum P.I. GTS) to his car collection, which already includes the most beautiful gunmetal 1956 E-Type Jaguar. Last year I took a ride in the E-Type, so this year I drooled all over the Ferrari and persuaded him to take me for a ride in it.

It was beautiful. That sound at 0:50 in the video. Just listen to it in the video below, like oh em gee.

Like the E-Type it's in pristine condition. Just beautiful. My brother also went for a drive, I think the grin on his face says it all!

Then mum got a tinsy bit jealous so she had to have a go too!

I'm hoping that he'll get another classic car next year just in time for my next visit! I've quite liked Uncle Gray's midlife crisis and the past two years of having a new car to play with whenever I've come back over :P

  1. I've never been a huge Ferrari fan but I'm a Jaguar girl through-and-through. That E-type, WOWSA! x

    Have you seen Cherrybomb, my '80s Jaguar XKSS? It was my gift from my late granddad's estate and this post makes me miss it so much! x

    I love classic cars way more than modern cars!
