THANKS TO TOMINI CLASSICS! http://www.tominiclassics.com/

The original Maserati Ghibli, from the 1960s and 1970s, shows us why Maserati used to be great -- even though Maserati isn't very desirable anymore. Today I'm reviewing a 1971 Maserati Ghibli SS to show you a time when Maserati used to be cool.

As I write this: 100 comments about the car. 2,600 comments about the turn signal being on.

Yes, I know it was on. I wasn't driving the car at the time. I could not turn off the Maserati's turn signal from the Toyota I was following with, unless I had a very long stick.

Actually a beautiful car, but, everything else is shit in it.
Everything looks aftermarket, poorly designed, cheap... Just to compare to a Vette c3, Chevy is better in every aspect.

The vents behind the seats are so you can use the AC while actually recycling the air out of the car without having to roll down the window and defeat the AC. I'd imagine they had smokers in mind

Is it just me or was old maserati just as shit as the new stuff, but many of us just have rose tinted glasses for the classics. I'm not sure the Dodge Dart switches are worse than the unlabeled nightmare that came with this car. And the engineering in the back seat area? Seems like Maserati was always trash.

One of the most beautiful cars ever made. Funny how you always point to things as odd or strange, but everything need the perspective of the initial design area. Unlabelled switches and buttons, check, you have the manual for that and the dealer to explain. The interior is amazingly beautiful. Keep driving the car and suddenly you’ll see all buttons and switches are exactly there where needed when driving. The back is perfectly done when seeing it from the right perspective. Building a car has an order. So the carpeting is pure logic and efficient. Filling up the holes with cushions is a great idea, for noise reduction. The fact you can take them out for convenience of space is genius. Air vents in the back? Brilliant. The speed when driving will create different air pressure between the interior and outside world thus sucking out ‘used air’ from the interior. And some other things,.....it’s just design 😁 Who cares the headrest only has two useable settings. When taking it out it is symmetrical. Design. This is one of the most most beautiful cars ever made. Sometimes one just has to drop the ego and ‘needed’ comfort. A car is made for emotions, driving, enjoyment, love.

If that steering column moved an inch, I'm Long Duk Dong. Doug says he's afraid to push the little button... then proceeds to push it, and push it, and push it again and again and again. Lol.

The rear, especially the taillights look a lot like the Miura..makes sense that it was designed by the same guy.
Derrick logan
