Nice Little Lamborghini...

Here’s a special little project we’ve been working on. Before pictures didn’t come out so good. Have a couple of “during” pictures, and the rest are afters.

Enjoy!

Those cars are still incredible. Good Job Nick.

You're nuts. Considering those things were actually designed in the late 60's and early 70's, they were nearly 2 decades ahead of their time and absolutely amazing.

Countach's are still my all time favorite Lambo.


Nick, who's shop is that? I'm liking the background eye candy in there. And nice work as always!

Now that's funny! I was at the car show in 2009 in Celebration Florida where they were showing that car just after it changed hands.

It looked awful! In fact, I have the exact same pics of it from that car show that they show on that web site. I almost cried it looked so bad, that is my favorite car of all time.

I'm glad to see the new owner chose to restore it. I asked at the car show and it said the new owner was some kind of movie producer or something.

I've got the pictures on my Iphone...let me see if I can get them posted.

I guess I dont have taste either...at one time I thought they were amazing, but with the new technology and styling, the Countach looks too retro/archaic to me.

Add one to the list....
Was a bad ass car during it's time, but it has passed. White pants on guys, day glow shirts, and mullets are dead as well.

It is cars like this that left us in awe when they were new, that make me wonder if we will do the same to the Lambos and Ferraris of today.

I agree, in 85 I was like that's radical. In 2010 I'm like I remember Miami vice.
Cool car none the less.

My dad helped build one of the kit cars used in the stunts in Cannonball Run. It was totally demolished from what I understand though.

Great work as usuall Nick!
