    Countach. Although a Vector poster occupied the space for a while.

    I had both. I still think both are great cars for different reasons. The TR was my favorite car and also the first Ferrari I bought. Even in 1997 when I bought it there was nothing else built at the time that I wanted. I traded a practically brand new 993 for it.

    I also loved the Countach. In contrast to the TR it wasn't a beautiful but it looked so agressive and at the time was a cutting edge design.

    I don't think you can call one better than the other (though AllanLambo certainly will).

    The TR was the most beautiful GT cruiser while the Countach was the ultimate supercar and really defined the term SUPERCAR!!

    If theyve got the dough it really doesnt matter, but this report is quite interesting.

    Bottom line is that it is you and that makes you successful! And success is defined in many ways.

    All that philosophy aside, those cars in the poster are bad @ss and I want them...I want them all!

    EDIT -Well, they can keep the Boxster :D

    Countach, I had a 6' poster of a red countach sitting sideways across a road that was backed styrofoam. It sat in my room when I was growing up (since mid 80's) and now proadly sits on the center of my garages back wall.

    Looking at that picture, i see that they kept each garage spot the same as the older one except for the 'Vette; why'd the ditch the 'Vette for the Viper, anyone know...? Not that i care, i'd take a Viper over a 'Vette, just wondering...

    OLD: 512 944 420SEL 'Vette 325i

    Wouldn't rival for Countach have been 512bb at the time ? My choice between those 2 would be 512bb....

    You'd think with all that money they would have built a deeper garage to get the cars all the way in.

    I had the black Countach in the desert at dusk with the doors perched opened. The 'good' pictures were under the carpet in my closet!

    A long time ago...I actually had both of them. A white countach and 2 Testarossa posters. Eventually, Ferraris began to weed out all the others!!!
