Scott was a Prince and owners like Scott McClure, Kenny Lombino and Eduardo Renta truly understand the meaning of noblesse oblige!

Stephen- You might mention to Chad that the GTS used had standard wheels and no flares, just like my old 02984. The wheels and flares were a separate option from the Daytona seat inserts, although together they were referred to as flares and chairs. There are a lot more flares and chairs cars today than Ferrari ever produced. My Rosso Dino 02984 is now a Rosso Corsa flares and chairs coupe, even though that option did not exist in Dec 1971 when the car was built.

The mixup is probably my fault; I have two Dinos and I got rattling on about the restoration of my other one which is the Chairs & Flares.
