365GTB/Daytona

Hi everyone: I was wondering as to why there hasn't been much reference regarding the "timeless classic" 365GTB/Daytona. Personally, I do not own one myself, but this is at the top of my list along with the Miuras (Lamborghini). From the looks' standpoint, I agree that preferences differ among the beholders. However, this has to be one the greatest Ferrari GT cruiser that is all fun to drive with drop dead exhaust sound. Any comments welcome, especially from the current lucky owners. Jimmy

Jimmy, Very good question and I have no idea why. I agree with your commets on it being one of Ferrari's true timeless classics. I think it is a car that you either immediately love the lines or do not. I found it to be actually a harder car to drive than a Boxer and one that really needs open space to run in.

You're right Boxer

Thanks for the comment. Yes Daytona is a "harder" car to drive than the BBs. The steering is very "heavy" and yes you need an open space to make the best of it. With all that said, Daytona is still a great, FUN car to drive. All that hard labor equals pleasure to the enthusiasts. Eventually, I would like to get hold of one before I become too weak for it. Happy driving Boxer.

It is also on my long term list and you are right about owning one while you are still fit enough to drive it well and hard.. However it will have to wait until after the F40 :green: :green:

The Daytona has not been forgotten. There is an active Registry for the Daytona at http://daytonaregistry.com/. Check it out. There is a lot of activity on this site. If you are ever interested in adding a Daytona to your colllection this site is a good resource.
