    #3096 Car # 51 off of the line. Rebuilt engine five years ago (Ultimate Motorworks). Engine now has the split sump !!!! Rebuilt chassis. Chassis reinforcements. Originally was a pimpin viper green / 60's GO-GO Boots green with black interior. Yes I would like to repaint the car; if I decide to keep it along time. It is a more difficult decision, given the quality of the repaint. A retired Delta Airlines 32 year senior pilot, owned the car for 28 years. The car was located in Newnan, GA. The owner and his wife, were very hospitable. They put me up in their Southern mansion that was over 100 years old. I felt bad when I took his car away. I am going to send him a thank you letter with a Kleenex. Car has a "boatload" of documentation of services back to 1977. Kudos to Mr. L. Ballatori for lending me his 2004 F-350 Diesel Redneck Cadillac, with radar detector, and AL enclosed trailer. We stopped to visit some friends of my co-driver when we went thru Alabama. The folks in Alabama, were more interested in the truck and trailer, than the inside contents of the organ donor bike and car.

    The sound is to die for !!! Where are some tunnels ? I could not put the BBi in the photos, because it is having the Major done. I also enclosed some genuine Italian Air Force Fighter Squadron/Gruppo patches in the engine pic.

    Ralph - the "pundits" say the front really lightens up once you burn off some of the gas in the tank. Have you found this to be true or myth?

    Hey Ralph: You suck! I mean really. Not only do you tease us about going out to fetch a "new" car- one that you told us was "a Lambo" and nothing else, ,but then it turns out that you go and buy the ******* crown jewel of the company's product line, one that is increasing in value daily, and that started the whole supercar thing in modern times. So, I pity you. You've simply got nowhere else to go now in Lamboville. It must really be depressing to think about.
    PS: Enjoy it. What a beautiful car.
    PSS: what was the color of the original Muira showcar? (I think it was orange...).
