I have a few cars. My closest to being "Magnum" related is my Porsche 928. As most fans are aware, originally Magnum was going to borrow a 928. But the Porsche was not a good car for in car scenes. I'm a 1970's kid and teen in the 1980's. So I tend too collect cars from those decades.

Interesting, I thought it was that Porsche didn't want to participate in the show.

Anyway, my car is a 2003 VW Jetta 1.8T, silver with black interior. It's no Porsche/Audi/Ferrari, but the turbo makes it lots of fun, especially in ~50º dry weather.

Before production began the producers wanted to use a 928. Porsche wouldn't modify the sunroof, make it larger for filming. So they got the Ferrari instead.

Gotcha. Neat, thanks for sharing.

My car is closer to Magnum's than any car here.... Magnum's real car, one he owned rather than borrowed. :D

Here's mine. (although not a convertible)

Beautiful bug and brilliant response. It's interesting to remember that actually [img]purchasing[/img] a Ferrari is probably the most un-Magngum like thing one can do.

Thanks. I always "downshift and accelerate when I pass the guest house". :P Actually, I don't have a guest house... yet. (but I'll build one eventually)

Yes, it's strange when you remember that most of the great things that Magnum has weren't really purchased by him. He didn't buy the Rolex - it was a gift. He borrows lenses, cameras, tape players. Probably the most expensive thing he actually bought is the surf ski. (not counting Ferrari "wind screens", rear bumper, and replacement telephoto lens he didn't actually need to replace :D )

Unfortunately, my Bug has started rusting to hell since I got my beach front "Estate". As Higgins said in "Holmes Is Where the Heart Is", "corrosion works very quickly in this climate". If only I had used cadmium yellow primer...
