seems your 'stupid' comment needed (and got!) clarification, so hopefully youve learnt to practice what you preach  ;)

my comment was based on the opinions/experiences of others, and i stated this from the beginning.  you never got your head around that it seems.  ah well.

Am I right in assuming that a 512BB is one of the great classics.? No one has tried to hose that down by mentioning a countach or porsche turbo or Daytona or 275 or anything.

a boxer is a strange car. almost an orphan.

they are sensational, no doubt.....but people seem to want the front engined V12s for some reason, proving that just being better isn't enough.

there's a reason why a boxer is 1/2 the price of a daytona (supply/demand)....but to me, it should be the other way around.

clearly, you and i are in the minority!

ignoring the rest of the cr@p, and without first hand knowledge of any of the cars you've mentioned, in my (worthless) opinion you are probably right.  :thumbsup:

Peter, what about driving a Daytona or a 275 or a 365 2+2, they are like driving trunks, compared with a boxer. (so much for front engined V12's)

i've only driven a modified 330GT 2+2....and it wasn't very nice.

a 275 is meant to be a real joy to drive.

a daytona....seems to depend who you talk to.

the boxer is sublime....but.....if people want a "traditional" classic ferrari, most prefer, rightly or wrongly, a front engined V12.

what's not to love about the boxer? great looks. great engine. great sound.

trade off is bad centre of gravity and terrible ground clearance....but ya know what? i'd live with it!

it's like saying a 430 is better than a 355. well of course it is.....but down the track, which will be the car people want to buy? i have no idea.

when the boxer first came out, people didn't like it. same as the change from tr to 550, the dino wasn't liked....the 360 compared to the 355 etc etc...then over time people change their mind.

like i said...the boxer is a better car than its predecessors....as a 430 is better than a 355....that's normal.

i guess it's all just a matter of taste.

the reality? they're all great cars in their own way.

it's somewhere in the Fchat spotters thread, I have a feeling 360C posted it.

Last year I went and pulled all the pics out of it and posted them in the old gallery here with references to the message it was posted in - that was back when there was a lot more useless fluff in the thread and it would go for pages without any Ferrari spots or pics.

Anyhoo, that gallery system crashed after a while - all the pics were saved but the descriptions/etc were deep-sixed.
