  1. Hi Allan and thanks. What shops are you familiar with? I know it's an expensive project and I want someone that will start and finish in a timely manner. I've seen many instances where cars sit, they lose parts, horror shows.
  2. Acquired in 2015. Had been sitting in a sealed cargo container since mid 90's. After an extensive recommissioning in 2016 and several hundred miles of driving she's been sitting high and dry. In the early 90's the owner refinished her in a red metallic, car was originally white. I swapped off the big bumpers for euro style and had the car sprayed with black Plasti Wrap. It's now time to disassemble and invest in a correct, white repaint. What the is best way to strip old finish? Chemical? Media blast? Does anyone here have experience in this? The body is in nice shape. No corrosion, no dents, no evidence of bondo. Thoughts?
  3. Thank you. It's my rush!!
  4. No Countach activity!? I start mine every 60 days.... So here's some boat pictures insteead! Lol BTW bought four reproduction P7 tires from vendor in UK
  5. I'm going to paint my Countach from maroon back to the original white. I ditched the 5 mph bumpers as soon as I bought it and sprayed the the car black plasti dip. Just hated the red. They had done a pretty decent job on the color change but I want to make sure the car is correct and detailed to factory look from edge to edge. Is there anyone in the area (I'm in Rhode Island) that has an 80's I could look at to see details such as trim, caulking etc?
  6. I don't know about better A/C or reliability but I'll say buy what you like. I like the 5000 S style. That's me. I like the cup seats, the old style interior and, no bumpers. You're owning and driving it so I'll reiterate, get what appeals to you. Any Countach is a rare supercar legend so you can't miss. Good luck in your search and be sure to have a PSI performed by someone familiar with the model. I can assure you a new looking car could need 50k or more in repairs which is no big deal as long as you know up front.
  7. This is a wonderful car just needs a couple of hundred more FT Lbs. The Huracan is much faster and feels like a race car in comparison but it is also about triple the price. I think Chevy nailed it and it's only going to get better.
  8. Yes!! Twin Turbo commencing soon. Passed the break in period, all is well. Definitely needs more pump. It's a Z51 but this car needs better gears still. It's not quick. My Huracan will stomp it, no contest.

    Wait!! Let's split hairs on the side skirts Lol Back then you could actually call the factory and get anything you wanted. It's no secret their records have voids.

    No Bull Allan. Bambino said "La Macchina e' Bastardo" Because La mia Macchina ha lasciato la fabbrica con un interno bianco e ora e' nera. Yes someone swapped out the white gut for a near perfect black one. I know the white ones never weathered well so it makes sense, but a nice white one sure is stunning. I remember at one point, I think in the 90's you could buy a nice Countach in the 40's. The person I bought mine from purchased it in 1992 for $32k. He showed me the car when he bought it. Had about 25,000 km and a couple of dings/scratches from storage. Also the left seat bolster was worn through. It was a good running car, just needed a little TLC. He had the car painted this hideous wine color. It came out ok, not show but very presentable. I acquired the car about 8 years ago +-? I think. I should paint the car back to white. I own a very competent collision shop but these projects clog up the operation.

    Allan Herbie has a kit car! lol. Allan, Balboni called my car "Bastardo!" How many can boast that?
  12. Picked up yesterday 3LT Z51. Many great attributes especially price but the Huracan feels much faster and racier.
  13. Fabulous car. Good luck. I can do without the wing. Even the Countach has a cleaner profile without it however it's wing and scissor doors are it's trademark features
