  1. Probably smarter to hit up the Countach Registry. I have a 1984 5000S but don't know how I could help you.
  2. If the vehicle spent any amount of time outdoors - and unless it's super-low miles then it probably did in the past 13 years - that part will crack upon removal. It's heavily glued, and the sun makes the plastic brittle. My first Murcielago was just 4 years old when I got it and it cracked on it's own. A good body man or windshield guy can remove that trim. Get a new one from Lamborghini.
  3. When Diablo's starting coming back into flavor, the early cars didn't get much love. So you've got these ex-rental/strip club owner/daytrader cars that were bandaged fast and cheap. Those should only be undertaken out of love, because there isn't a payoff. Don't get me wrong - I think that ALL Diablo's are very cool. But the words nice and early Diablo definitely should not be in a listing for a the low 100's car.
  4. Thanks for explaining - I appreciate it. I think the move is to cosmetically bring it back from those garish visuals - and then just drive it for the fun of it. It would be cool to remake the correct Jota wheels, though if they were originally 17" then I'd do them in 18".
  5. I don't understand. What's up?
  6. https://www.ebay.com/itm/312919013161 Is this a real Jota? Or a creation? If it is a factory Jota that was customized, I think that this price is quite low.

  8. Congratulations on the purchase. Don't mess with those wheels if you ever want to turn them back to original. Notwithstanding their disassembly and re-assembly after color-change (and again back to chrome, later), re-chroming wheels that were once chrome is arduous and perfection is not guaranteed. We've just spent two years restoring a set of Alpine Edition wheels and from fasteners to re-chroming to sealing, it's been a challenge. Better to get some other set of wheels and just store these. Personally I like the Work Wheels Meister S1 (shown below), though they don't accep
  9. Passionate people travel the globe seeking great cars. I've caught Hershel literally getting on a plane to some place just to check out a car. And they've had less than perfect cars and were quick to disclose shortcomings (not every 25 year old exotic has perfect paint, you know). I trust Herchel and John at We Are Curated. P.S. John Sr. helped out with diagnosing some challenges on my SV a few years ago while it was sitting at Lamborghini Palm Beach, and I appreciate his unsolicited help.
  10. First and foremost, there has to be someone at the manufacturer, who actually gives a shit. Two examples: You're driving and at excessive speed you pass an off-duty cop on his way home. He doesn't do anything, because it's not his business at the moment to do so, though he well could. He just does his job, and won't act unless he is told to. Case very close to this: parent company is Volkswagen AG, who also owns Porsche. There's a guy in Doral (Miami) committing criminal fraud by getting cheap Chinese replica wheels and having them made with the Porsche markings on

    Fcuking loaner!

    They gave you a new series Phantom?!
  12. I've always wanted to have sex with you. But now I won't even bring condoms!
  13. Great memory. And that federal arrest reads like an episode of E! Who says the era of the scam artist died in the 80's? Filming your captain snorting blow! JERRY! JERRY!
  14. Don't know how I missed this thread, but my Son's head about exploded when Bill passed us early one morning on his way to the gym. That is the most intense blue that I've ever seen on an automobile. Bill has amazing taste and vision in cars, and those wheels are perfect. He's easily had 30 or 40 brand new cars in the 14 years that I've known him and there wasn't a loser in the lot. I remember that he was the very first to truly build a Jeep in the modern style - years before anyone else did. BMW 7-Series, Cayennes, CGT, Ranges, I lost count of how many McLaren's, my all-time favorite G

    Discount Diablos

    The 2 top bidders, bid like rookies. Should have remained in the shadows, waited til final seconds or used a sniping service, and bid $190k. Would have likely won at under $187k. The winner was just a little luckier than the #2 bidder.
