    My dad's first exotic was a 308 GT4 Dino. It was red w/ a black interior and out of all the cars our family had, I think this car had the most character. It did not have the sexy curves of the 308 GTB/GTS but that is why I loved it. He bought it in 1987 w/ only 12K miles on the clock. Reliable, affordable and a fun "budget" Ferrari for sure! I love the underdogs I guess. Even it's unloved youger sister the Mondial 8 to me is absolutely gorgeous (especially in cabriolet form) Again, you guys capture the essence of what being a true car enthusiast is like. I'm grateful I was able to share my M5 with you last June. Keep up the fantastic work and keep driving up the market value of our beloved old cars! ;)

    Randy, Your statement that you "love the underdogs" was great! It is the owners that give these cars "soul" and your video was an example of that. The way you spoke of your car was the way we should all feel about our cars. Thanks for sharing your car with us a few weeks ago!

    The great video streak continues unbroken. I especially like the bit about driving it home after a meet and loving the car he is in. There is a certain bit of wonderful about being happy with what you have and not comparing it to the unobtanium. Automotive happiness is available at many price points.

    Can you divulge what roads this was filmed on? I live in NJ just outside of NYC, so wherever this was filmed must not be too far away. Looked like some great scenery, I'd love to take a ride wherever you guys where when making this!

    Wonderful video. Wonderful, and interesting car that I've always been curious about. That two litre V8 sounds simply fantastic.

    What makes these videos so wonderful for me is not only the diversity of the cars, but also the relationships; the love the people have with their cars. That's what it's all about. It's how we feel every time we open the garage, or when we glance over the shoulder as we walk away. Thanks

    Christopher - I live in the area and am in familiar with some of the roads featured. The one by the water with the stone walls is in Northern Westchester County, southern Putnam County via US 9N in the stretch between Peekskill and Bear Mountain Bridge. I believe the others were shot between Bear Mountain Bridge and Cold Spring.

    Actually looking at it again, some of the footage looks like it's taken from the 301 between the Taconic and Cold Spring. Some from the Taconic itself.

    Before anything was even said, I was thinking of The Italian Job. The opening sequence of this short film is simply divine. Keep up the great work.

    The opening scene is Old Storm King Highway between Lee Gate, West Point and Cornwall. Where it cuts to the in car is the small pull off, and if you go through/over that wall you have a couple hundred feet down to the Hudson. He's headed southbound in that clip. Next the clip shot from the engine cover is northbound on the south end of the the same road. The steel guardrails look like part of Harriman State Park as does other spots, maybe 7 Lakes Drive. If you want roads better than this with much less traffic, go to Ulster County and head west from Hurley towards the Ashokan Reservoir, and there is a spiderweb of amazing roads, little traffic, and great scenery.
