She is finally home

I'll keep it short as I am exhausted lol

I was woken up today at 8:30a.m telling me the car was here I know that does not seem early but to a nightclub owner it is ridiculously early. I was expecting him around 11 am so it was a nice surprise . I had to get up quickly barely time to get ready, all I kept on saying to myself was "OK relax, just relax go slow and remember to put on some pants for God sakes"

The delivery was kind of a blur, I remember talking to driver but for the life of me could not tell you what we talked about I was so preoccupied lol.

The car looked good, a little dusty, but I was not going to give the driver grief as he was 70 yrs old. There was a TR in the truck as well as a 360 along with old Stingray and an old truck did not make out what it was.

We baked car out slowly, no mishaps, no dings, all good Some of my neighbors came by to look at my new baby. I swear if I had cigars I would of handed them out In all my excitement I only took a few pics, I kept forgetting .

After I settled in with her for a bit I immediately changed the original wheels for new set of Murcielago wheels I bought. After lunch it was time to head out for my first drive, I drove two blocks for gas, while parked at least 6 ppl came up to talk take pics. Drove another 8 blocks to my mechanic, while I was showing him local newspaper photographer pulls in and asks if he can take pics of me with car, he wants to put it in weekend paper . Drove another 8 blocks to friends dealership where I spent another hour talking about the car to everyone that came up to look at it It was a great day.

OK no more chat here are just a few terrible pics sorry

PS I live in old industrial area where we converted to warehouse condos so surroundings look off to say the least lol

These pics were taken a few minutes ago in my garage safe and sound. I have a 3 car garage last stall is for her . I still have it decked out for when I had the Ferrari, I am adding Lamborghini script and logo to walls don't worry.

You will notice a giant Bull Head on the wall, this thing is 8ft across has glowing red eyes that activate when garage doors open It also shoots smoke out of it's nose but I do not have that hooked up yet no seriously it does.

Notice the new Murcie wheels on my baby

Congrats! I bet you were sweating when the car was getting backed out of the truck. It's always a tight fit.

Roberto- You need to get some bulls in that garage or you are going to chap off your mistress. Cavallinos have to be like a red cape for a Lamborghini.

Thank you, I sat in the garage today just staring at it for half an hour and I can't believe I made it all that time. Never again. Unless for an Aventador

Today was another event everywhere I went. Wetpet was right this car draws so much attention, I had ppl run out middle of the streets to look at what the hell drove by and almost get hit by other cars.

Speaking from a position of authority on this matter...He has MUCH more patience.

Congrats Buddy, just please be careful. As you have already experienced, people are stupid and can cause you great harm. Get her out on an open road and cleanse your soul.

Roberto- Easy on the clutch. Engine has to be removed to change the clutch. My techs just did a late model clutch change.
