Ferrari 308 spotted in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Details on This Ferrari 308:

  • Location
    Albuquerque, New Mexico
  • Description
    Spotted at an iHOP. It looks like it was broken down and the owner was kind of a douche. I asked him if I could take a picture and they both ignored me and then I asked if they needed help at all and they ignored me again. I don’t blame him, I’d me upset too if my Ferrari was broken down. So I just picked up my food and snapped a pic as I drove off. It looks like it’s a racing Ferrari. Anyone know about the decals on the car?

Of course we're talking about a 308, so it's not too expensive now

Yeah I’d be sad too if my expensive sports car broke down too.

@Ferrarilover7 Thanks! And yeah kinda sucked but like I said didn’t let it bother me I saw it from his perspective

@lukaku145 Hahaha wtf but did you end up getting the pic of the 512bb? And like everyone is saying in here it seems like the owners of the older ones are the rude ones :P

@rampante550 Yeah that’s the stereotype with Ferrari owners lol, fortunately I’ve had a good experience with all of them but also this is the first time I’ve seen one of the older Ferrari’s in the wild and the first time any exotic car owner has ever been rude

@KennyMK6R I mean yeah that shouldn’t justify it but the if the guy had no contacts here, couldn’t speak the language, had to keep up with the tour, and maybe didn’t even know what he was doing with his car, he probably just hated life at that point lol and thought “wtf is some kid going to do to help”

@croftoncustoms That’s awesome! I think I had heard something about it.. But yeah that makes sense. Like I said, don’t blame the guy. This happened just a few days before concours I believe and yeah Jerry is chill af. Can’t believe you got a ride in the F40 dude that’s amazing!

@leaf_soto @ Haha that’s the stereotype. I feel bad for the guy though since he’s not even from here. I wonder if he would’ve been nicer if he had just stopped to get food and his car was fine..

@lukaku145 Haha yeah this was the first time I encountered a douche owner, lol. Wasn’t too bothered by it though and now that I read @croftoncustoms comment it makes a little more sense. Doesn’t speak the language and his Ferrari broke down in a country that’s not his and being thousands of miles away from home? Must not be fun.

Cool find! A shame that they ignored you.

One of the rude ones drove a California who told me “if I was good I was good I could be his good ornament”. He was older and was very friendly up to that point letting me take photos of the car so I think it was unintentionally rude and was meant to be a joke so it didn’t bother me. The others one was a 512bb owner in Davidson who pretty much ignored me and acted self-important.

Funny thing - in my experience, owners of 308s, Mondials, etc. are far more rude/stand-offish/etc. than the heavier cars. Brand-new owners are probably split 50/50

@Leaf: you can't say that. Just because some people have bad interactions or there are the few who are and deserve to be called that dosnt make every owner one( for any car). Generalizing this statement is just in poor taste.

Example: A local owner of numerous exotics including a F40, 250 California, 275SWB and many more is by far the nicest, most down to earth person. To the extent that the day I met him he took me for a ride in his F40 in the rain instead of taking it home because it has only been rained on a handful of times. He also has a large car show at his estate where he opens it to the public. Who does that!? Not a A-hole Ferrari owner, that's for sure.

Wow! So they were part of the Tour Americal. It's a rally from overseas and in 2017 they came through NM. I met a handful of them who all spoke little English because they were from Belgium, France, and other countries. It's a long tour and they are completely out of their comfort zone for sure. That's why I'm guessing they ignored you; they just didn't understand you. Sad they broke down during the rally but hopefully they got it fixed and finished it.

That just goes to show that most Ferrari owners are arseholes. Before I was thinking, "I hope he knows what he's doing" and now I know he was being so rude, I'd crack open a cold one and just laugh.

I've only ever met two rude exotic owners before and both of them were Ferrari owners. Never had anyone blatantly ignore me like that before though when being polite, that sucks.
