Default Ferrari 308 vs Dodge Challenger

They could have at least showed a Challenger that wasn't falling apart:

Notice all of the gas leaking out when it corners.

Funny how we think alike. Two years ago when I got my dad Season 1 of Magnum P.I. for Christmas and saw that for myself, I was thinking the same thing. The truth is they had to find a old one because a good one if equipped with one of the good engines would have pounded that Ferrari 308.

Those were not very fast by now day or 70s standards. They didn't have a very big engine. Don't get me wrong I'd love to have one, but they were more a vehicle to look at and not so much for power. Of course this was 1981, so that was okay for back then. I believe the Corvette was quicker from back then.

LOL, I just came across this, I love the show Magnum P.I. There was another episode where he was being chased by a 1970 G.T.O. and he was like, "No matter how fast you think your car is there is always one that's faster". I agree with you about the 308, it's not like it was a '71 Daytona.

Its funny how almost all movies with old mopars always end up being crashed[:'(].
I used to watch the show when it came out, but this is the first time seeing that scene. I was to young to know about any cars at that time.

Isn't that the one where I runs into his long lost wife?

Yeah, exactly! It was the coolest ever. If u get the DVDs it's awesome 'cause it's like watching a movie with no commercials and like I said it was a two-parter but if u have the DVDs they edit it perfect into 1 long one. I think it was from season 2 and it's called Memories Are Forever. Here is a link about his shirts and BTW yes I have one lol.http://www.mauishirts.com/magnum-pi.html

I thought so. I already have season 2 and my father has season 1. You're right that it is like watching a movie. The only thing is I have had problems with the DVDs from Universal Studios and have had to return the discs more than once. Have you also had this problem.
