Niels, I saw it at VSOC outside Amsterdam. Very nice guy runs the place and they had several outstanding cars. Boxer42
My mistake, to clarify the above, I have not seen any RHD on the market/for sale in LHD countries. ha:Boxer42 said:The car Niel's is referring to is a LHD and was originally sold in France. It was imported into the Netherlands in the late 90's and had about Euro 40k of restoration work done to the body, electricals, exhaust, and suspension. I have not seen any RHD in LHD counttries as RHD normally command a premium price. I have seen some ex-Singapore cars ending up in the UK.
Dino 246 in a heart beat. You will thank me in the future. You already have the best 2+2 from Ferrari and I think you'll enjoy another 2 seater GT.Boxer42 said:After my recent trip in the Boxer, I have to admit I have started to rethink the wisdom of a Vintage 2+2 vs a 2 seat GT. Any thoughts ?
I looked at Dino 246's several times in the past. It looks great from any angle. My problem is I am over 6" and the drivers seat is a very tight fit. Also tough to find one without major rust issues. It is one of my favorite designs.Enzo250GTO said:Dino 246 in a heart beat. You will thank me in the future.

Jurgen, I agree, they are completely different. For the former I have that covered now with the 456 GT and it does all those things extremely well. On the latter, it is about the experience and the older the car, the more unique (whether you enjoy it or not) the driving experience is. Hence the rethink. 330 GTC or a 365 GT4 BB (Daytona is out of the price range :-? ) ?DJ said:Boxer,
IMO it's difficult to compare a 2 + 2 with a 2 seater GT, certainly not comparing a 2+2 with a sporty beast as a Boxer. They have a different approach to get from point a to point b. It's what's you're looking for, the 2+2 will get there fast, is more luxurious, has more space, but is more docile. The 2seater GT would get you to point B faster, with possibly a more sportive drive (and I don't mean in speed only) and a bigger grin on your face AND the wife arriving a half hour later in her car and the luggage. Two different cars, two different approaches.
But, you know what you have now, you know the ups and downs of your Boxer, you'll never know what your getting in to when buying something else.
