Just been out to photograph and (more importantly) drive a fully restored Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole - freaking AWESOME :D When most kids my age had posters of Farah Fawcett Majors on their bedroom walls, I had this car. To actually drive one was a dream come true! :D

Thanks for looking.

Was going to say something really nice about the stunning pictures, until I read that you even got to drive it. That's when you fell off my xmas card list :-)

Thanks for the kinds comments chaps. Sadly, I did not see the red line in top but the acceleration and handling are awseome for what is a 25 year old car. And the sound! Hmmmmmmmmmmm :D:D
