  1. You're doing God's work with this project dude, major kudos for the updates! Thank you!
  2. Find any other candidates for Aventadors lately?
  3. You are 100% spot on! I'd speculate because they have no chance at purchasing most turn to being critical to make themselves feel better.
  4. I've noticed a bit of a trend with BaT and I'm wondering if I'm alone here. Previously, I really liked the site and the information and offerings it had. Prices were decent and the vehicle selection was great because it wasn't muddled down with chaff. But now it seems that the site is absolutely obliterating a lot of collector car markets with huge price inflations and making it a challenge for a lot of people to get into vintage, collector or performance vehicles. Then if you want something desirable, you're going to bend over and bring a trailer full of cash to get it. Nowadays, it really seems like the whole BaT site is loaded with over-priced, over-appreciated, and "rose-colored glasses" perspectives on cars. The "community" that bogs down with all the comments and discussion seem to be filled with obnoxious self-aggrandizing personalities. Maybe I'm just jealous of their traffic But in all honestly, the site isn't what it used to be, and now I'm curious what other sites are you guys looking at for fun cars? I've checked out Carsandbids.com for a little while and it seems to have some stuff, but it's also getting infected with stupid listings. Example, people are JAZZED over a Lumina minivan....I'm not cool enough to appreciate or understand why, but it is what it is.
  5. A boy can dream, because damn...that's an awesome collection!
  6. I've met Chip multiple times, interviewed him for a story and got to see some of his work. He's one of the nicest guy in the automotive aftermarket. He's incredibly talented, and can see he appreciates the initial design. I think Hagerty just tossed this to him and said "make a redux on a Countach" rather than him thinking he can improve on it. He even said, "If you like Lamborghini's don't mess with it" That being said, domestics are his strong suit. Give me an unmolested LP400 anyday!
  7. It's kind of an odd little ditty, but not painful to watch.
  8. Detroit actually lost exotics and even brands like Porsche in the past few years. Probably since 2012 or so. There was, like Manhattan Motorcars, the collection of dealers and some factory support doing a private expensive event nearby which was fine.
  9. Maybe check out Ring Brothers - They should be able to fab something up. https://www.ringbrothers.com/ 1.608.588.7399
  10. Any luck with Russel fittings?
  11. Monthly payment is one thing. If you are daily driving it, make sure you budget for tires and brakes regularly and find out what it's going to cost you as well as insurance. How many miles do you drive per year and what's your fuel allotment? Just make sure you have all your bases covered because if it's a stretch to get it, it's REAL easy to get in over your head.
  12. Have you replaced the fuel filter? What kind of fuel are you running through it? The higher temps lead me to think an increase in moisture and condensation is getting past the filter, and causing havoc. Not entirely positive, but i'd check that and maybe look at getting the injectors cleaned out and seeing if that helps.
  13. Found this beauty on the Robb Report coming up for auction in September. Article Link: https://robbreport.com/motors/cars/1967-lamborghini-artcurial-auction-andre-trigano-collection-2945812/ The 400 GT has to be one of my favorite vintage Lamborghini's and this one, with just over 21,000 miles looks to be an awesome addition to whomever picks this up.
  14. Here is an article, Corvette is moving program engineers into an EV program. https://www.hagerty.com/media/news/while-c8-plans-remain-unchanged-chevy-moves-corvette-engineers-to-ev-program/
  15. I believe the LARA is a rather pricey tool. Your best bet may be finding a third-party shop that has one that might be able to help you out.
  16. With GM's goal of going full electric, I'm not surprised. It may be a way to defray some of the development problems by limited release and development on the chassis. That being said, I'd speculate the C8 Z06 will be considered a performance car, much like the Porsche GT3RS, no one calls it a supercar, but it's a scalpel on track and a real drivers car. The ZR1 and ZORA will end up being the contenders to be considered supercars with that amount of horsepower (800+ and 1000hp respectively) and technology. Time will tell, but it'll be interesting to see how the Corvette grows.
  17. Good morning and welcome! The best model is the model you can afford. Whether that's a vintage V8, modern V10 or V12, there is A LOT to figure out. In regard to financing, are you taking a note out because you don't have the total sum to pay at the time of purchase? Or does that same amount of money get a better return than the interest you are going to be paying for the loan? You'll have maintenance, repairs, modifications (if you choose) and a payment to be aware of. Do you plan on driving it year-round? What kind of climate do you live in? Is it a weekend kind of vehicle? If the car breaks down do you have the ability (financially/mechanically) to repair it? There is a lot to consider to make sure you don't put yourself in a bad place financially.
  18. According to Motor Trend the new Corvette Z06 will have a naturally-aspirated V8 that screams up to 9,000 RPM. Color me interested to see how this one comes out because I love this! https://www.motortrend.com/news/2022-chevrolet-corvette-z06-engine/
  19. I believe it's for visual appearance in a thumbnail. Looks more balanced than if he was standing and made the car appear much smaller in comparison. Just a theory though.
  20. Sounds like a short. Was the unit installed later than originally purchased? Wondering if any work near it lately, or on install is causing the grief.
  21. I think the bigger concern is making sure the offset of the wheels is factory. And I could be wrong here, but i think it's a bigger problem on the AWD system if the offsets are off. Could affect the clutch as well, but i don't recall if that's the case.
  22. I know Shmee is a hit or miss with you all, bu this video isnt so bad. I just wish he'd buy even a cheap lav mic. Anyways. Enjoy, the car sounds bonkers and the F40 mid-restoration is drool worthy as well.
  23. Would the guys over at Russell be able to help? http://russellperformance.com/ It's a fitting company owned and operated by Edelbrock Performance. I've toured the facilities in CA, it's top-notch. Maybe check in with them. If you needed something made, I feel like they could do it (if they don't have a comp.)
  24. So the automotive publication Autoweek recently interviewed Maurisio Reggiani from inside the SCV12. He also names his favorite Lamborghini. Can I also say how much I HATE people interviewing or monologuing from inside their cars? It's a weird thing that bothers me, but it just irks me #endrant
  25. I'm sure you could upgrade the batteries?
