1985 Ferrari 308 GTSI

Purchased new from Symbolic Ferrari of La Jolla Ltd. April 1986 by George and Adrienne Weir of Escondido, California. Weir sold the 308 GTSi via a classified in The Tower Report promoting the vehicle with 6,750 miles in February 1989. Dr. William Quinlan of Tucson, Arizona bought the car and kept the GTSi through 2010 when it sold to Skip Ranson in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Ferrari GTSi returned to the West Coast when it was purchased by its current owner in 2016.

The Ferrari 308 GTSi comes full circle in the showroom of Grand Prix Classics one door down from the 1980s address of Symbolic Ferrari with Mark Leonard, who once spearheaded Ferrari sales with Symbolic and sold this car new, now the mastermind behind Grand Prix Classics.
