Rick- Those mouse seat-belts were a pain in the neck. Does the 85 have inertia reels?
I actually prefer the look of the 512 TR to the earlier cars, but a lot of that is probably just the wheels. Plus they are a lot stronger than the earlier TRs. All the TRs and 512 TRs look great to me, though, and are uniquely exotic. The single mirror versions do stand out and draw a crowd.
I agree on the F512M. Lots of disparate design elements that do not coalesce into a unified whole like the TR and 512 TR.
Come to think of it, my 78 308 GTS had inertia reels, so of course the 85 did, as well.
Pablo- Production numbers:
TR, 7177, by far Ferrari's best selling 12 cylinder ever
512 TR, 2280
Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125
Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
