    Rage, rage against the old double-nickel. ;)

    Jim, 335: what incredible stories! The Ferrari "mystique," is built as much on the people as the machines. The cars seem so alive because so many of the owners, drivers and mechanics truly lived.

    These stories stand in stark relief to the static, sterile and climate controlled homes many of these cars are now finding themselves in. Sort of offends one's sensibilities, doesn't it? Kudos to "that punk from NY," and everyone else who keeps these wonderful cars fit and active in their dotage.

    And Jim...Charlie don't surf!!! :D

    It seems like this is form over function debate. If you are not destroying the apparance of the car, why not improve the drivability so that the car can be enjoyed. Isn't that why we buy them?

    Chassis problems?? Well it was because Bizzarrini left. Bizzarrini WAS the GTO aside from the engine. Mrs Ferrari really screwed things up.... and I guess it was Mr. Ferrari who was screwing things.........................up too.

    Oh, this thread is making me pull out the old shoebox and looking at the faded pictures of days gone by. I seem to be in the same age bracket as the contributors so the 70's were certainly the good old days. In 1972 I was thrashing around the streets of Miami and Miami Beach in my Dino without a care in the world, and shortly thereafter in my Daytona Spyder or SWB Calif taking in all the glorious sounds and the spoils that came with the marque.. A late criminal law professor one told the class to fondly recall one's memories to one's self is fine, to share them may be a chargable conspiracy so irrespective of any Statute of Limitations outs, specifics are a nono.. These days my thrills are running up the Wilbur Cross in a 16M hawking the radar detector for the "Staties" who can take your car away for excessive speed.. Ahh the double nickle and 260 at 39 cents per.. Guys, this has been a pleasure.. Thanks.

    Agreed 101%

    Matched perhaps only by Jim's Miles Davis story. But only because I am more a fan of Jazz than of Ferrari's, and I'm a huge fan of Ferrari's.

    I ran a search was looking for info on handling characteristics of short nose GTBs vs long nose, differences, similarities, etc, then I read 335s' post again and it all doesn't matter anymore. Still one of the greatest F-Chat posts ever and worth of this otherwise useless bump.

    Unless any of you would like to discuss handling differences between short nose cars and long nose cars...

    I guess that I missed this the first time around.

    I believe that Elaine May wrote the screen play for "A New Leaf". How in the world
    would she know about --- I think it was --- "Carbon on the valves", but it may well
    have been "Carbon on the plugs". Either way, how did she know about the problem?

    Anyway, it was a great movie. The very first scene is worth the price of the movie ticket.

    Great thread with a lot of memories and testosterone. So what’s the consensus? Seems like the 2 cam is more raw and closer to the SWB in feel and the 4 cam is closer to the Daytona. For me I like the look of the 2cam and the short nose. Price is obviously an issue.

    It is indeed a great thread.

    I didn’t know how old it was until I saw Napolis post!
