sorry guys, havent been active on here. just saw the requests. the audi/gallardo joke is something i have tried explaining for a long time. i have driven the v10 R8 and it is no where near as much fun as the lambo. sure lambo uses audi parts but porsche and vw have a long history of sharing stuff so it isnt anything new. I did have this
e9930.jpg at Free Image Hosting but ended up selling it for the lambo and i do regret it but having driven other ferraris, if i was asked honestly which one i prefer, lambo or ferrari, i wont lie, i am a ferrari fan first. why ferrari? first and most importantly, i never had an issue with the ferrari but the lambo........
the lambo had a larini exhaust fitted and with every scream from the engine, something breaks lol

and to top that off, i get a stone chip on the front

in terms of driving experience, no doubt the lambo feels and acts like a different car than the audi but in terms of reliability, i dont know. well i did have an aftermarket exhaust on it so thats not fair for me to say its unreliable. the car before the california was a AM DBS and i can tell you that it sucked and had no mods and kept on falling apart on me.

i will post better pics of the lambo though. everything is fixed now so i should get posting when i can cause its gonna be sold in a few months time. 458 on the way.

egg nogg, its so good to see you again man hope everything is great with you

Well i don't think the aftermarket exhaust would ruin the rear wing or the glove compartment, so i can understand the frustration, it does lack a bit in the quality department, considering the price you pay for it.

Did you get the 458? I spotted one round my parts a few times now, the thing is absolutely gorgeous!

1962 Porsche 356S Karmann Hardtop

Thought for sure I'd posted this already but apparently not. My 1962 Porsche 356S Karmann Hardtop hotrod... finished it last November, went
to two car shows taking an award at one, driven 4120 miles since getting it back on the road. Fun, fast, comfortable and handles great.

Nice, what engine/box in the Stohr ?
Many readers like me will want to know more ( I'm always on the lookout for something different. Radicals are boring over here )
Do your own thread on it please.

Lovely stuff! Great to get the groceries fast or a ready meal. No time for it to get cold.
Congrats. These cars are huge but very beautiful.
