The year was 1980, the place, a luxuriantly beautiful Hawaii. It was a time when criminals had much to fear from crime fighter extraordinare Thomas Magnum and his awe-inspiring moustache.
The story was simple. Magnum lived in opulent surroundings which were funded by a mysterious benefactor. His only task in life was to live it up and get into interesting adventures. Whew! Now that’s the life for me!
And yet even Selleck’s famous ‘stache was outshined by a set of wheels– a Ferrari 308 GT to be exact. The car carried Tom Selleck faithfully and made sure that he would dispatch the baddies in style.
The Ferrai 308 is the name of several versions of the car produced from 1975 to 1985. The American versions of the vehicle were 240 hp and were made with glass reinforced plastic making them extremely light. However, steel versions were later rolled out. A number of different models were use for the filming of the TV show.
