  1. Thank you so much for the tip! I considered switching my vacation around for this. We had been planning to go to Japan in the next year or two. Unfortunately we just booked a different trip, but I really appreciate the info. One of these days I am going to take the car to one of these international events!

    Some Vintage Love - Jack and his 400GT

    Amazing guy. Went to Concorso and said hello. He immediately offered me a glass of Lamborghini wine and treated me like an old friend.

    WTB: Lamborghini Diablo Luggage Set

    I just looked online, but could not find a set. Not long ago, there were a couple complete sets and some individual pieces available on eBay. If you don't find any right away, I would keep checking eBay. They come up from time to time.

    Gallardo Spyder Flying

    That was a hell of a crash! The deploy-able roll cage beams are even up. The car thought it was going over.

    Rally packing list... don’t leave home without it

    Make sure your spare tire set up is up to task. I blew a tire on a rally in the middle of no where. I usually bring coolant , oil, some basic tools, and flares on any longer trip. Vintage cars are a little different, but sound advice I think.

    Garage coming along

    That is an incredible set up and collection. Hoping to get mine looking like that in the near future. Congrats. It is spectacular.

    Not a good day...

    I think if you are going to race something on a track, you have to be prepared for that kind of result. SUCKS, but race cars crash.

    Gotta love carfax...

    CARFAX is a joke. There was a thread a while back showing a Lamborghini in 2 halves for sale..... crashed and torn in half at the firewall..... with a clean CarFax. I think i t was this one. https://carbuzz.com/news/for-sale-lamborghi...used-half-price Maybe someone else can clarify, but I remember seeing similar pictures and people pointing out that it had a clean CarFax. Don't trust them and do your homework is the moral of the story.

    Dealer etiquette?

    Lamborghini briefly had a dealership in Portland years back. They invited customers to a grand opening celebration. The wealthiest person at the event was the least well dressed. I have never worked in sales and I know better than to judge a person by clothes. I think that a lot of people with money like to shop for expensive things dressed like a slob. I would. I imagine it is pretty amusing.

    Dealer etiquette?

    An hour with no service is weird. I have never experienced that at any dealership. I tend to put less importance on customer service. It is nice, but I would rather buy a great car from a jerk, than a lemon from a kiss up.

    Valentino 50 event in Italy this May

    I met VB at Concorso Italiano in 2012. He was walking by and I introduced myself, told him I lived in Oregon and owned a Jalpa. My wife snapped a picture of me with him and he thanked me profusely. It was only a minute before he was escorted promptly away by someone. The next year I took my car down and saw him at the club dinner. He came to our table to meet everyone. I started to introduce myself again and he said "Yes from Oregon with the Jalpa, I remember." I was floored. He was so kind to everyone. I saw him crawling around on the ground helping someone with their car at the 2012 show. I am impressed every time I see him.
  12. The Jalpa seems to making the news more than usual lately. Here is a little clip that Hagerty did https://www.hagerty.com/articles-videos/art...mborghini-jalpa

    Miles vs Maintence

    Agree that every buyer is different. In a perfect world, I would prefer a higher mile well maintained car. In the real world, I have had some terrible work done on my car. I have also had some things updated away from stock. I had a bunch of records from the previous owner and it turned out the work was done poorly and had to be redone. My car has less than 30,000 miles, but has required a ton of work. Some of the work was good work. Stuff wears out no matter how well you maintain a car. Even though I have a lot of records and take care of my car, there are issues I have not addressed. The reality is that I would be fine with a higher mile well maintained car, but I would expect it to pay less for it. I would inspect both and never pay a premium for a high mile car no matter how well maintained. If I got a PPI, and both cars checked out, I would expect to pay less for the high mile car. I would not expect it to be a big difference. If the low one was 180,000, I would expect the high mile one to be around 175,000 or slightly less.

    Amazing deal on a 2017 Aventador!

    Thanks for posing the listing. I put it on my watch list. Maybe if it doesn't sell right away, the price will come down. I usually buy used.....

    I hate it...... ....but I really hope it sells like crazy and generates funds for Lamborghini to develop more and better sport cars.
