OH MY : A VERY special car

Didn't know where to post this.. The first time I did it in Funny Pictures, but, somehow felt CA should get the credit.

Yes, in my area, Santa Rosa CA j

The license plate it blocked out to protect me from not reporting this fine auto to the CHP: Then again, I owe it to the people to get it off the road.



WELL, on way to lunch one day, about a month ago, I saw this on the way and had to stop....

was almost afraid the owner would pop a cap in me...

Such detail, such an nice rendition of a classic, model, Lambo-mucas, I'm lacking in Lambo history.

.......still trying to understand how much he put into this.


Oh, CELLPHONES: Making myspace and Youtube more relevant.

THEN, Christmas Eve '08, I was making some last min. shopping and as I drove by the same alley, saw it again IN THE Rain, and yup, this car has no windows save the terrific windshield, if you can call it that.

LET ME point out the highlights

A pillar is broken near the bottom to allow for a more raked profile

Yes, if you look closely, that is Electrical tape top and side and bottom of the windshield : Such detail, such fine work..... I'm sure it exceeds specs

The rear, well, can't quite be described...., more airfoils and holes and whatnot to , well, not sure: Bet the drag co. is very, very low
or
I'm guessing the sucking ability just makes for awsome following impossible, therefore A RACER !

wow.

The ROOF, wow, ready for the track.

A 'couple' hood scoops....guess he had too much territory or too many carbs in that engine.

Some side, front fender mod, guess in the works.

LOVE the lambo symbols....fool anyone

What engineering, what detail, what is it doing in the rain, without windows.... I would be afraid some one would steal my expensive radio, or seat cushion....

That is truly awful has the owner/customiszer been released early from a secure institution? I like the electrical tape holding the rubbers in place on the top of the windshield A pillar. There are so many things wrong with it I don't know where to start, so I won't.

Rik,

If I am not mistaken was that not parked in your driveway for a while with a Mondial script on it?

Don't tell Rik that. He will cry for sure.

He bought that as a surprise for his wife but does not really want anyone to know.
