    How come the older ferraris have wheels that are so highly tilted? this doesnt seem comfortable to me, but if you look at basically any of them up until the first 456, then the 355, then 550, they all had wheels the tops of which a normal man could hardly reach! why not more horizontal like michaels:)

    On many cars you can adjust the angle by loosening two bolts on the column.

    It's just a matter of achieving the proper Italian seating position. Crank the seat back to almost horizontal and grip the bottom of the wheel in an underhand fashion. Works great :)
