Aloha and welcome to my Lego Idea and a Tribute to:
Magnum P.I. Including a Ferrari 308 GTS
If there are Lego Fans who don't know who Thomas Magnum is:
Magnum, P.I. is an American television series starring Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a private
investigator living on Oahu, Hawaii. The series ran from 1980 to 1988 in first-run broadcast
on the American CBS television network.

Private Investigator Thomas Sullivan Magnum resides in the guest house of a posh, 200-acre
(0.81 km2) beachfront estate, known as Robin's Nest, in Hawaii, at the invitation of its
owner, Robin Masters, the celebrated-but-never-seen author of several dozen lurid novels.
Ostensibly this is quid pro quo for Magnum's services based upon Magnum's expertise in
security; the pilot and several early episodes suggest Magnum also did Masters a favor
of some kind, possibly when Masters hired him for a case. The voice of Robin Masters,
heard only a few times per season, was provided by Orson Welles.

With Magnum living a luxurious life on the Estate and operating as a P.I. on cases that
suit him, the only thorn in the side of this near-perfect lifestyle on the Estate,
is Jonathan Quayle Higgins III (played by Texas-born veteran actor John Hillerman),
an ex-British Army Sergeant Major, a (on the surface) stern, "by-the-book"
ex-soldier whose strict ways usually conflict with Magnum's much more easy-going
methods. He patrols Robin's Nest with his two highly trained "lads", Doberman Pinschers,
Zeus and Apollo. Often as a humorous aside during various episodes of the series,
Magnum must bargain with Higgins for use of estate amenities other than the guest house
and the Ferrari 308 GTS (e.g., tennis courts, wine cellar, expensive cameras).
The relationship between Magnum and Higgins was initially almost that of a
"friendly nemesis", but as the series progressed, an unspoken respect and fondness
of sorts grew between the pair, and as such, many episodes dedicated more screen
time to this "odd couple" pairing after the relationship proved popular with fans.
