I hope to join the ranks of you guys as an owner SOON
Have had few corvettes in past, 2008 when GM offered the employee discount for the first time ever on vettes, I bought a Z06... 2 years now, it has about 4200 miles and sits in the garage as a queen.
I'm a dentist by trade, and now that my practice is really taking off (long story, practicing 20 years now, but started a new one 5 years ago) I can upgrade (in my own mind anyways) my Z06 which I just about have sold now on Ebay.
Spending over $100K is still more than what the wife will let me spend... So no 360/430... that's okay, because I've always had my heart set on a Testarossa...
I found a 1992 512TR with 28,800 miles for $83,000... Red with Tan interior, 30K mi service last summer... if I get my finances in order in a few weeks, and if the car is still available, I'm all over it!
If not, I'm sure another 512TR equal to my liking will emerge
Until my membership allowed me to post, I've been reading A LOT here... already know about the recalls on the 512TR, its little nuances that might present themselve, already talked to Ferrari of Atlanta about future serving... Man am I psyched, the 512TR just has that Pizzaz that says "FAWAWI" as my 3 years would say
Couple questions though... this car is all stock, the only thing I want to do to it (other than drive it) is to put a new exhaust on for more sound... what do you recommend? Tubi, Capristo, Basinni, Larini, other? Secondly, I need a tuner, I'd like to have the car dyno'd and tuned to enhance performance if possible... and lastly, Ferrari of Atlanta is the only local dealer near me... but I've heard that sometimes a Ferrari mechanic may leave a dealership to start his own business and often times the service bill is substantially less.... with a 1992 used car, warranty obviously wouldn't be an issue.
So any other advice?
Glad to be here fellas... hope to contribute here in future
