Time Machine: Mike Salomon’s Ferrari 308 GTSi
For our first original short film, we go for a drive in Mike Salomon’s 1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi. Designed by Pininfarina, it remains one of the most iconic Ferraris ever made.
Mike’s love of classic cars is a journey he started during childhood, with cars from 80s TV shows leaving an indelible mark on him; KITT from Night Rider, the A-Team van and the Ferrari 308 from Magnum P.I. “I remember as a kid having a Corgi toy of it, and sitting in class trying to draw that duct on the side,” says Salomon.
With a growing collection of 80s and earlier sports cars, Mike has great interest in cars form a simpler time. “What’s amazing about a car of this era—a more romantic era—compared to now. These things were hand built. and they have all the foibles that come with it, but it’s the charm is definitely there, you can feel the soul.”
Thanks to Mike Salomon for sharing his journey.
