    Maybe the owner wears a Hawaiian shirt and
    Sports a 80s mustache.

    Kim is being too harsh. The car is also red. ;)

    Perhaps the 'scalloped' seat face design?

    I believe that this car's black plaque is sort of interesting:

    The plaque does sorta make me want to add it to my garage, though, along with my 1980 GTSi (but not a GTS), which is red with tan interior.

    Along these lines, wasn't there a "Twins" movie featuring The Arnold and Danny DeVito?

    Hmmm. Red/tan. 5 spoke wheels with horsey in the middle. Steering wheel with horsey in the middle. Oh yeah, it's all coming together now!

    If you want the badge, I’m sure you can have it made and place in your Ferrari without having to purchase the whole car

    Shouldn’t the passenger seat have Rick’s footprints on it? Because, you know, he never used the door.

    The seats sorta kind of but it's a stretch. I'm watching Magnum right now.

    Black a pillars (where these California's like this already, I've no idea) and (for the first few seasons before he got an 84 model.)

    Black stripe on seats (we all know it needs couple more)

    That's about it. And I'm reaching.

    Guys, and this is one of the better Magnum PI 308 GTS inspired 70th anniversary cars.

    They did 5 versions:

    The California T- at least its a convertible similar to the 308 GTS
    The 488 Spider- the one that is the most similar to the 308 GTS and the most desirable.

    Imagine owing the 488 coupe, Ferrari 812 or the FF/Lusso version.
    How do you make those look 308 GTS inspired ??!!
    Those three are just there to make up the numbers.
