Hi guys,

Im new to the forums and my friend is taking me to see a 1985 maserati bi turbo 5 speed manual tomorrow. The seller is asking $2000 dollars. From what i heard the car was not running because it needed a new carb but it was just replaced and supposedly its running now. Can you guys give me some tips as to what i should be looking for on these cars? what i should ask, is the price worth it? and are these reliable cars?


Thank you....your advice is appreciated!

Look for noisy differential. Look for boost to go well into yellow when you lay into it for a few seconds. Rust!!! (door bottoms, fenders near headlights, under chrome on pop-out windows). Blue smoke under load means bad turbos. There's more, but this is a short list.
