You guys are funny. Full of it, but still funny.
If you're legally blind then just say so. It's cool. We won't judge.

We're not full of it. You're just blind and unwilling to look for 2 seconds. Old Ferrari's are the most common replica car made. Don't be mad you spent an hour talking to and ogling over a man's Pontiac Fierro.

The sunroof is a dead giveaway. There's no way anything like that would leave the Ferrari factory.

Dude use your brain.

The Ferrari 308 DID NOT COME WITH A SUNROOF IN ANY MODEL! They were either a coupe with no sunroof or a open top. /thread

Magnum PI would slap you in the face.

A crappy badge location and sunroof could be results of a poor repair job and aftermarket work. Highly unlikely, but possible.

It's incredibly unlikely that someone would relocate the gas filler neck and have custom glass made up to replace the wing windows.

Damn you autocorrect. I'm sure what you typed was "wow, you're right, thanks for taking the time to show me, including finding pictures that illustrate the subtle differences, and for being respectful and nice instead of mocking me." But autocorrect must have changed it.

For the record, I'm not a Ferrari expert. But clearly I'm more of one than you. And I'm older than the oldest 308. And (hold your breath for this one) YOU'RE also on a BMW forum!

Its a replica. Conversion kit added to a Pontiac Fiero. They're all over the place. Countach is another popular one. Replica Daytonas were built on Corvette chassis. Replica Dinos were built on Corvair chassis.

Open your eyes and figure it out. Or don't. I'm done trying to help you.

Guys, do-it-yourself drop in sunroofs were HUGELY popular in the '80s...everybody had them. I guess there is a possibility it is a replica, but its not a Fierro.

It's not a Fierro, It is 100% a PONTIAC FIERO. It was owned/built by Roger Garrison. He built the car from a PONTIAC FIERO in 1997. The kit is known as the "stinger" kit built by Luc Chartrand.

I am ashamed I know any of this information. A friend of a friend is one of those Fiero wierdos. He is also borderline special needs and could identify from 1000 yards that this was a piece of **** FIERO.

You walked around this thing, looked at the shitty pontiac dash and still believed it was a Ferrari.

That actually looks not bad for that corvette. It almost makes it look desirable

The only thing more than a replica is an unfinished replica.
