I'll never forget the first TR I saw in person - it came over the hill and I was mesmerized by the singular mirror - knowing that it could only be a TR - and then watching Mr. Smith drive by me, smoking a big cigar. A sight for the ages...
Of course, I turned and followed - respectfully - but what a car and what an impression. Of course, I was probably 24 years old at the time and loved the design, the fins, the width from the rear. Over the years, the TR design waned quite a bit, as there was another one in town that was just trashed - which turned me off of them for a while, but I, like you, have found a recent fondness for the design - even looking at them online today.
I love the BB as well - don't we all? - but the price on the TR's has come down tremendously (more than other Ferraris it appears) and have seen several in fine condition and service history for under US$100k - not sure that includes an 512s, though.
Could be a fine way to fulfill your boxer ambitions...
