    Way Cool Jay -

    See my post above... any specific issues to focus on during PPI besides clutch, head gasket and electronics?

    Thanks for the positive comments guys. I'll post more pics when it arrives. Can't wait!!
    Only problem with buying this time of year is that I live in the snow belt and can't drive it for the next 4 months or so.

    You don't have problems fitting in the car? You seem to be tall from the pictures and my concern would be hitting my head on the roof.

    Congrats on the car

    Yes I'm tall at a tad over 6'5" but no problem with head room. Leg room is tight obviously but not uncomfortable.


    Thanks again everyone for the feedback. Hopefully I can meet up with a bunch of you guys this summer.

    Jay, the car looks like a beast. May sure you join the EC Crew (a.k.a. the New York Tri State Forum) for our runs. Oh, and we don't stop because of a little white stuff! - :D

    wow! that is sooo insanely beautiful!! it's good to know you can fit! A Diablo is one of my dream cars (yellow with black lettering and yellow and black interior SV to be exact), I am only 14, but my dad is 6'4" and my brother is 6'5"...it's good to know if I am ever lucky enough to own one I'll fit!
    again, congratulations with the car, simply stunning.

    BTW Jay a Tubi system will make that car roar:D The very first time I heard a Tubi it was on a car identical to yours...I don't remember the guy wh owned it very well but he had the Lambo and a Ferrari. Was selling both to get a bigger house.

    He may not be able to drive it for awhile but he can still sit in the garage and make vroom vroom sounds...I admit it, I did it:D

    The first night I had my first Lambo I went out to my garage every hour or so just to look at it and see if the dream was still real....No BS!

    The car has a custom exhaust on it already but there seems to be some confusion as to whether it's a Borla or Burtoni box. I will be investigating as soon as it arrives. It sounds good whatever it is.

    The pics were taken after I drove it like mad. Plus they purposely did not clean or detail the underside of the car before I arrived and I agreed with their reasons. :)

    Luck has little to do with it. Work hard and keep focused on your goals. :)

    Congrats Jay!!!

    It is encouraging to know that you fit! I sat in a 1999 Diablo when it was new and I was a couple of inches shorter and somewhat lighter than my present 6-3". I am not quite your height, so the dream is still alive.

    One question: Did you buy your car from Don L. Leasing? I know that they had a blk/blk w/red piping '95 VT a couple of months back. If so, I would be curious to hear about your experience with them. I was thinking about a Lotus they had earlier this year, but decided to wait because I have heard mixed reviews.

    Nice ride bro...

    Wiz357 - Thanks man!

    Cajun - I bought it from Lamborghini Ohio. The one at Don L. has red carpeting. Mine is black. At 6'3" you will have no problems.
