Hard to see, but these water spots were etched into the paint. The worst I think I've ever seen! Obviously couldn't get them all out but we got them about 80%better.

Pretty cool car. Looks like the one I saw at Cars & Coffee a couple of months ago. Don't see many of those, that's for sure.

I'm sure it's the same one, only cleaner now

I can't imagine there being too many around here, and the owner is a Car's and Coffee fan, so I'm almost positive it was him.

Great job as always Nick! Those early Lambos are very rare and really interesting. He started building cars because Enzo Ferrari was being a prick to him.

I think it looks less like a Pantera and more like a DeTomaso Mangusta, which was the predecessor to the Pantera.

Mangusta:


And if the guy ever gets a Miura, you need to call me out to see it!

Yeah the only old lambo I liked was the Miura. Those others looked very akward. Still cool to see one though. Good job as always Nick, I cant believe the reflections on that thing.

LOL! Man, we've been so busy, I can't even see straight! Got home last night and my dog had her bags packed, ready to hit the door! Guess she's a little frustrated with my lack of attention

I'll get out there soon, promise! It's at your parents house, correct?
