    Well when I was going to my classes today my eyes fell on a Lamborghini Countach parked on the side of the road. After nearly falling off my bike and crashing into the car behind it I drooled over it until I was late for class.
    Of course after class I went back and drooled some more. It was a black Countach with light brown interior. Not sure on the year but it had quad exhaust and no spoiler. Upon further inspection I found that it had a parking permitt. I'm pretty sure it isn't a student's, but I don't know any professor around the uni that can afford a Countach (in very good condition I might add, just needs a wash).
    I kind of wish the owner would have walked out when I was drooling on it (and being late for class). I kinda wanted him to pop the trunk so I could see the engine... :rock:

    edit - a Countach spotting and 1200 posts, w00t.

    I see this as being either a car thread, suited for the motors forum, or a slightly sly way of boasting about 1200 posts ;) but I shall move this to the motors forum and give you the benefit of the doubt :p :)

    The Countach is a nice car, utterly impractical sure, and being Italian it might break down a lot, but frankly who cares? I can't think of many cars that have such visual impact as Lambos tbh...

    :)

    It was more of a thread about my amazement of seeing a Lamborghini at CSU, but fair enough :D .

    Lamborghini's have always been my favorite car. They just look cool :rock: .

    I saw one at the Autostadt in Germany last year (the big VW-group theme park type thing) more specifically, i saw the new versions of all the different ones they make, including the new Diablo *drools profusely*. Nice motor.

    I've always loved Lambo's and will sadly never own one :waah:

    I've seen a few at car shows and such, but only one time have I actually seen one on the road.
    It was in Monroe Wisconsin. It had a hideously ugly brown color scheme inside and out, but that wasn't the tragedy.

    This middle aged "I'm compensating" looking dude was leaving a big grocery store in it --- by himself --- in the snow! :jawdrop:

    I've never wanted to punch someone in the head quite so badly as I did then.

    New Diablo? They're new models are Murcielago Barchettas. Unless I missed something... Which I probably did.

    I would have stolen that old guys Lamborghini... The stock price for the new Lamborghini is $160,000 (I repeate, STOCK).
    When I get a job I will probably buy a Lamborghini and live in it and forget about the whole house thing :p . Hey, 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds, thats the fastest home I've ever seen :D .

    Lamborghini Countach, very nice I have seen a few over the years on the road and at car shows etc.

    Lamborghini Diablo SE is also very nice indeed.
